One of my favorite scenes in "Pretty Woman" is not when Vivian goes back into the snotty boutique and said, "Big mistake. Big. Huge. I have to go shopping now. " Nope. My favorite scene takes place the morning after Vivian and Edward met, and he ordered one of every breakfast item from the hotel menu, and she picks up a big fluffy croissant. For some reason, I always think of that scene when I order croissant. Needless to say, I'm a huge fan of the French pastry.
Last week, my cousin suggested La Dijonaise for brunch. I had a delightful Croissant Sandwich, with eggs, cheese and sausage. The croissant was buttery and flaky.
We also had a Pain Perdu, or French toast, made with baguette. It was just ok. A little too eggy for me.
