Visited: July 5, 2007 - Breakfast

Boulette’s Larder is still a great breakfast choice offering fresh and well crafted food from great sources. We felt pampered.

Scrambled Eggs with Farmer’s Cheese, Sliced Dates and Purslane
They were out of farmer’s cheese and asked if it would be alright to substitute chevre. A very well made plate arrived with perfect purslane and tiny slices of date. I thought the elements didn’t really go together but they also didn’t fight – just merging into pleasant eating.

Scrambled Eggs with Pork Pate and Purslane
Pork Pate was a whole slice from Fatted Calf. A nice idea which I hadn’t considered. Scrambled eggs were perfectly done.


Toast (3 different kinds)
Walnut, Walnut and Fruit and Plain French all toasted nicely in the oven. Served with Rose Petal Jam and Apricot Preserves and Sweet Butter

Blue Bottle French Press Coffee
Ethiopian I think today.

European Style Hot Chocolate
Needs to come with something to dip in it. We dipped French bread and asked for more.

Orange Juice
Good, freah.

Tea
Enjoyable but pricey.

Yum. Yum. Yum. Jack summed up his scrambled eggs by saying – so this is what you do with purslane. My poached eggs/pork/peas combo was fantastic too. The eggs were perfectly poached and all the flavors were great together. The coffee was awesome. The hot chocolate even Jack would drink was thick and creamy. The tangerine juice we’ve had before – it’s bottled but fresh tasting and pleasant- Trent liked it too. We’ll be back. It’s maybe not a secret but if there is one – this is the best kept secret of the Ferry Marketplace. You have the option of eating outside or inside (at their community table). Can’t wait to go back!

We also can't wait to try the two duck confit we purchased to go - $15.50

Jack confesses to loving the ambience of Boulette's Larder and is very ready to enjoy an evening meal there.
