“Rainy Days Should Be Spent At Home With A Good Book & A Cup Of Tea.” – Bill Watterson
Let’s Blog Over French Tea…
If you ask any of my family or friends that knew me as a child they’d say I always had a book in my hand, and a cup of tea in the other, and possibly sitting on a blanket under a giant tree. Not too much has changed.
The weather here in Houston is getting cooler, and like every other day the past couple of weeks it rained. I decided to get up and go venture out down the street the beautiful Café Poêtes.
Café Poêtes is a contemporary interpretation of a Parisian café. A landmark of the past and present all combined. I love the white interior and natural lighting that streams in from the window. Like a Paris café, Poêtes has a full kitchen and baker offering an inventive menu with delicacies for anytime of day. Also featured is a hand-selected offering of wine. And of course, signature éclairs.
Shelves full of books compliment the light and airy atmosphere where you can escape and forget about time. The terrace with small bistro tables and a fountain is the perfect place to get away and connect with friends or just have a cup of tea.
Today I started off with a lavender éclair, with a pearlicious white tea. Both complimented each other well with the éclair having a crispy, flaky outside, and a lavender cream that was astonishing.
Afterwards I went with a french classic Croque Madame, and the Egg Muffins. The Egg Muffins being highly recommended and consisted of hash browns, cheddar cheese, and bacon. The sweet Thai chili sauce was an added twist that magnified the flavours of the ingredients, coming together well.
