You know a place has good eats when it's tough to find a parking spot during the lunch hour.
You could smell the goodness emanating from the bakery/cafe before shutting the door to the vehicle. I followed the enticing aromas into the place.
A quaint joint, Bagatelle serves food old-school-cafeteria style. You walk in, tell the person behind the counter what you want, she serves it up and hands it to you hot, smelling great and looking delicious. You pay for your order and find a table. Table service, drinks and bread sides are self-serve in the dining area.
I treated my girlfriend today to a birthday lunch. She went with a Tabouli salad, hummus and chips. I had the special, a serving of chicken enchilada casserole and a side salad.
It was all excellent. The hummus and crispy pita chips made for a perfect bite, the salads were a great marriage of flavors and the casserole was a definition of comfort food.
This was my first dining experience at Bagatelle and I'm glad my girlfriend recommended it. She's never had a bad meal there and I've heard from others as well that everything on the menu is good, which includes quiche, soups, salads, sandwiches and daily specials. Now I know first hand just how good it is, I'm kicking myself in the rear for not checking this place out before today! The telling tale: A repeat visit is a must and not just for breakfast, lunch or dinner, but to purchase some of those great looking desserts and breads from the bakery! Oh, and the prices are VERY reasonable.
