La Serre is a Parisian-style cafe for breakfast and light meals with an upstairs restaurant for Mediterranean dishes. It is massive and has a chic setting. La Serre welcomes you with an oval swing decorated with vines that makes you feel you are entering a secret garden.
La Serre’s most famous dish is their poached eggs. They have a lot of poached egg options but I ordered L’ avocat Benedicte de which has two poached organic eggs on toasted Campaillou bread with avocado. Served with smoked salmon and spinach. Hollandaise sauce on the side.
I prefer my poached eggs smooth, not wispy, a ball of tender egg white enveloping a soft yolk that gently spills out when broken into. La Serre makes the perfect poached eggs as how I like it. They even made it better by adding my other favorites like salmon which added the saltiness of salt water and avocado which gave a buttery and nutty taste. The arugula gave herbaceous, peppery flavor with nuances of nuts and mustard in addition to making this dish yummier to the eyes.
I highly recommend this dish, I should try the veal bacon on my next visit. 5/5 for La Serre.
