Feeling a little fancy, I decided to dress up and venture out to Julienne’s in San Marino to enjoy a nice breakfast with fancy toast. The weather was just a bit crisp but sunny. We opted to sit outdoors since the overhead heaters made for a comfortable environment. This was my first time trying the restaurant, but I had heard great reviews about it.
Julienne’s is well known for their breakfast. Their signature dish is a creme brûlée French toast served with fresh strawberry sauce and creme anglais. Of course, this was the first item I had to try!
Baked Crème Brulee French Toast with Fresh Strawberry Sauce and Crème Anglais
This dish is so decadent and sweet! I would recommend sharing it so that you don’t end up in a sugar coma.
The ambiance of the restaurant is intimate and quaint. The restaurant consists of a dining patio and three adjacent store fronts, one of which serves as a gourmet market and gift shop. During this particular visit, holiday music played in the background and the restaurant was decorated with twinkle lights and garland.
After looking over all of the egg options, I opted for an omlette. While all the egg dishes sounded delicious, the Green Omlette caught my attention since it was served with avocado.
Everything was fantastic. From the complimentary toast to the ambiance. Julienne’s is a great place to start your morning with your girl friends chatting over a hot cup of coffee. Or a nice date place to take that special someone or even mom and dad.
