Le Petite Abeille has a few locations in New York including a cozy restaurant on 107 West 18th St, (at Sixth Avenue – kitty corner from Bed Bath and Beyond) I like going there for their brunch menu which includes their famous Belgium Waffles but their lunch menu isn’t too bad either and includes some very tasty sandwiches.
We went and ordered 2 breakfast specials:
Eggs Benedict with Black Forrest Ham w/ arugula salad and yam mashed potatoes
and my favorite the Omlette Maison (salmon with scallions and sour cream):
My favorite omlette is actually quite simple. It’s called the Liege waffle:
It’s served without any syrup, fruit, or toppings. It’s very light and the best way to describe the taste would be something like a very fresh old fashioned doughnut. Today though it wasn’t very fresh and was a little stale and chewy. The restaurant staff tells me they fly in the ingredients for the liege waffle all the way from Belgium. Don’t know if it is true or not but when it’s fresh it’s very good and would definitely be worth the flight over.
