Bon Appetit with Cafe Bagatelle and Bistro in San Diego

Caprese Bagette, Steak Frites, Quiche Lorraine - all words that bring me back to my visits to Paris.

Not to mention, these dishes instantly make my mouth water.

On a recent visit to my kids usual haircut spot, I noticed a new cafe on the corner of the same strip mall. It's modern, chic look was very inviting and definitely caught my attention. Bagatelle Cafe and Bistro was calling my name!

Thanks owner Sylvie and the awesome team at Bagatelle Cafe and Bistro, the family and I were able to enjoy a wonderful summer lunch at the brand new restaurant. 

First of all, the ambiance inside the restaurant takes you away from the hustle and bustle of Miramar Road and allows you to enjoy a relaxing meal. The modern, chic decor and upbeat vibe is one you would expect in the more trendy areas in central San Diego. It is a welcome addition to the Miramar and Mira Mesa areas for sure!

The staff was super friendly which gave a welcoming feel to the restaurant. They were gracious to answer all of our questions about their menu and even offered from great suggestions on menu favorites!

The menu has lots to choose from. It ranges from breakfast to lunch items, American to French inspired dishes. I stared at the menu for a few minutes trying to decide what to get. It all looked so good!

I decided to get the chicken shawarma special for the day that was displayed on the chalk board outside the restaurant. The kabobs were grilled just right. The grilled tomatoes were still warm as I bit into them. the hummus was creamy goodness! It all was very delicious and very filling. I couldn't finish it all.

Hubby has the chicken and mushroom crepe which he inhaled! He kept making the "mmm...mmmmm" sound as he was eating. That's always a good sign. I took a bite and it was delicious. It was savory and creamy, and seasoned just right!

My son Jelo had the Strawberry Banana Crepe. He loves his strawberries and bananas so with his being his first crepe experience, he ate one of the two huge fruit and cream filled crepes on this plate. He said he was stuffed!

My younger son DJ loves waffles so when he saw the Belgium Waffle on the menu, he was set! The waffles came with bananas, strawberries, and a generous helping of whipped cream on top. Of course, I had to take a bite. The combination of cream, fruit, and warm waffle goodness was perfect. DJ usually doesn't rave about his food but he did say, "Yum, this is sooooo good"!

We have found a new favorite restaurant in our neighborhood! We are looking forward to bringing family and friends here for we know they'll enjoy it as much as we did!
