LE BRUNCH AT LADURÉE
Brunch in French-style at Ladurée in Vancouver
Laduréebrings Parisian-style brunch to the city with the launch of its brand new Le Brunchmenu, starting Saturday, August 10, 2019. Available only on weekends at its tea salon (1141 Robson Street), guests can expect to enjoy freshly-baked pastries, traditional French omelettes, croque-monsieurs, avocado toasts, and Ladurée’s famous brioche French toasts.
“In the past couple months, we’ve been taste testing our brunch dishes and are very glad to finally be able to introduce it to our guests at Ladurée in Vancouver,” says Olesya Krakhmalyova of Ladurée Canada. “Ladurée is known for its exquisite egg dishes around the world, especially our take on the classic omelette. Couple that with a seasonal peach tart and mimosa, and it’s definitely a very delightful way to enjoy brunch on the weekends.”
The full brunch menu, offered Saturday and Sundays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., includes a selection of house-baked viennoiseries (pastries), such as croissants, croissant aux noix (walnut), chausson aux pommes, pain au chocolat, palmier, and Ladurée’s signature croissant à la rose.
Ladurée omelettes are distinctly French, creamy, and smooth with an even pale gold colour. They are made with free-range local eggs and are rolled into a classic cylindrical shape. Guests can order from two omelettes – the classic French Ladurée omelette with mesclun salad and the Ladurée Omelette with mushrooms, Emmental cheese, ham, tomato, and mesclun salad.
Ladurée’s world famous French toasts are made with a special brioche baked in-house by Ladurée Canada’s executive pastry chef, Mickael De Monte. The brioche is airy and buttery, giving guests that “melt-in-your-mouth” texture. The French toasts include a choice of maple syrup or jam and Chantilly cream or a Rose Raspberry version with raspberry coulis and Rose Chantilly cream.
Ladurée’s savoury brioche is also used for three new avocado toasts: sliced avocado on toasted brioche; avocado with smoked salmon on toasted brioche; and avocado with an à la minute soft-boiled egg and smoked salmon on toasted brioche.
Croque-monsieurs feature ham and Emmental cheese or just emmental cheese.
Guests can order from a number of beverages to “salut” to the weekend the Parisian way, with mimosas, macaron topped cocktails, champagne, and mocktails
Ladurée’s exclusive sweets menu of macarons and cakes, such as a new blueberry cheesecake, vanilla millefeuille, and Ispahan, are also available.
Reservations are recommended. Walk-ins welcome.
