True confession time: Sometimes, we're a little slow. Like in this case, not knowing until now about Parisian Cafe. But, you know what they say - better late than never.
We'll make up for it by telling you about this daydream-worthy dish: a Cheddar and leek corn pancake topped with slow-roasted pork confit, two poached eggs and covered with a tarragon-tomato hollandaise sauce. That would be owner Justin Murdock's Eggs Biscay, a take on Eggs Benedict.
"Everybody loves it," says Murdock.
Except for the french bread, all Parisian Cafe's yummies are made in-house and that includes the sinful croissants, plain and chocolate. The cafe, which opened in mid-November, is located in the old Petite Pea location, 1012 E. Sixth St. Or, perhaps you'll know the spot by its next door neighbor - the drive-through liquor store.
Murdock came across the space while he was looking for a commercial kitchen for his other business venture, a mobile pizza truck called Hellfire Pizza Co. that should launch soon. In the meantime, the chef decided to open up a place serving breakfast all day with a French-inspired menu.
When you sit on the small patio on a warm afternoon, "if you squint your eyes and turn your head to the right," Murdock says, "it kinda feels like a French cafe."
Parisian Cafe (798-3333) is open 8 a.m.-4 p.m. Mondays-Fridays and 8 a.m.-3 p.m. Saturdays. It's closed Sundays. Look for its page on Facebook.
