While visiting a friend in Fairfield, CT we enjoyed a Sunday brunch at Café Lola. Café Lola is a cozy bohemian inspired restaurant that seduces their customers with French Comfort food. For brunch, I enjoyed traditional French Toast with mix berries. But my friend was more adventures and opted for the Henri’s Mom’s French Toast. This is French toast cooked in bacon fat, topped with a fried egg and bacon. The menu notes “please approach with caution, as it is highly addictive” and according to my friend it was.
After a successful main course we could not resist looking at the dessert menu. The menu was full of a variety of chesses, pastries, pudding, etc. However, we were quite curious about the Petite Profiteroles Au Nutella. I did not know what Profiteroles were, but we both love nutella. Come to find out profiteroles is a popular choux pastry. Choux paste is baked into small round puffs that are served cold with a sweet filling and sometimes a topping. Café Lola’s version, offered six pastries filled with a creamy vanilla ice.
Next time I visit a French Bistro in Boston, I might be eyeing the dessert menu first, and looking this savory treats. Will keep you updated on my search…hopefully the winner is a Boston Bakes participant.
