Our own Jasmin Bell recently competed on Chopped, the popular Food Network show. We’re so proud of her spunk and competitive spirit! If you happened to have missed it, they will be rerunning it again on Thursday, December 3 at 8 PM, PST.
Happy Anniversary to us! It’s been 5 years since Le Rêve Bakery & Cafe opened its doors on Queen Anne Hill. Thank you to all those who helped us celebrate. Our customers are truly the best!
If there’s one thing I’ve learned during our 2+ years in business, it’s always listen to what our customers have to say. And you’ve been telling us that you love breakfast at Le Reve, and you want more of it. Okay!
We started by introducing breakfast on the weekends at beginning of this year. And it was so well received that we decided to start serving breakfast on a daily basis, which we’ve started this summer. So far it’s been a real hit.
Of our breakfast offerings, our most popular item is our fresh baked Brioche Breakfast Sandwich. However our newest addition, the super flaky Croissant Breakfast Sandwich is a close second. We also have a new following for our Yogurt Parfait that’s paired with housemade granola and seasonal berries. If you haven’t tried it, you should. It’s like nothing you’ll find on grocery store shelves. And for those who want a healthier breakfast alternative, the Brenton Breakfast Salade—created by and named after one of our talented baristas—has been a huge success. My personal favorite is the French toast made from our fresh baked cinnamon bread, which on its own is pretty darn awesome.
So, with all of these delectable additions to our breakfast menu, as well as our wonderful assortment of light and airy croissants, fluffy omelets and quiches, and sweet or savory crepes to choose from, you’re sure to find something on the menu for breakfast. I promise, you can’t go wrong with any of them!
And remember, with everything we make at Le Reve, we use seasonal ingredients sourced locally, which in some cases are about as local as you can get, picked from Le Reve’s own garden out back
With French flair and a warm and inviting atmosphere, Le Rêve has become a gathering place for the community…
From traditional French pastries like Double-Baked Almond Croissants to Lemon Meringue Tarts, Napoleons and Fresh Fruit Tarts, the bakers at Le Rêve work around the clock, baking everything from scratch and in-house. While everything is delectable, the Kouign Amann (pronounced queen-ya-mahn) is my favorite. A caramelized and crispy exterior and an impossibly buttery and flaky croissant-like interior, it is positively to-die-for.
Even better? Ask to get it heated.
For a savory breakfast, order the Le Rêve Breakfast Roll with lettuce, tomato, bacon, gruyere cheese and topped with a fried egg on a soft and buttery brioche roll. Croque Monsieur with Jambon ham, gruyere cheese with Dijon mustard on baguette is great for lunch as well as their selection of seasonal soups – Fire-Roasted Tomato Bisque, Yellow Split Pea, Roasted Acorn Squash, or Broccoli-Leek.
