Brunch at Cafe Gitane

I arrived at Cafe Gitane with high expectations. Rave reviews, beautiful instagram photos, Olivia Palermo, and my co-worker had me convinced it was the New York City brunch I'd been missing out on all this time. Conclusion? Lovely ambiance, satisfactory food, sad service. But I will be back-- for the short/no wait and the beautiful bright dining room.

High ceilings, arched windows, tons of sunlight... Basically the perfect dining atmosphere.

Organic eggs with basil, tomato sauce, cream, Merguez sausages, $12
Delicious! Make sure to only order this if you are okay with spicy foods-- my one bite almost put my mouth on fire.

Orange blossom waffle with fruit and maple syrup, $9.50
A beautiful waffle with very sweet fruits. If only the waffle was light and fluffy though! It was unfortunately a little too hard and eggo/frozen waffle-like in texture.

Avocado, lemon juice, olive oil, chili flakes on 7 grain toast, $7.25
Avocado toast is worth ordering at a restaurant; something I never believed before. The 7 grain toast has just the right dense texture to hold the avocado and olive oil properly. The kick from the chili flakes was a nice touch too.

Look at that toast! Same thickness as the avocado. Yum.
