Le Petit Dejeuner
Located on King St. East, Le Petit Dejeuner is sandwiched in between the Chocolate Lounge (where I can not even afford to smell the food let alone dine) and Gabby's (where I can not even afford to expose my stomach to such horror). Affordability? At $6.50 for what I'd call the best soup and sandwich in town, one just can't go wrong.
The menu ranges from cheap delights like the soup and sandwich deal and salads to pricier items such as stuffed crepes, quiche, and eggs benny or florentine.
But back to the soup and sandwich. Every day the feature items change. Soups you may come across are Carrot & Ginger Soup, Tomato Fennel Soup, or even the hearty Potato & Leek Soup. Match that up with your choice from a pair of sandwich specials ranging from the Apple Cheddar Sandwich (my fave!) to Tuna Salad or Poached Chicken and Tomato.
Unlike next door at Gab's you won't find the Campbell's chicken noodle that was yesterday's special is STILL today's (and tomorrow's). Soups are made daily and from scratch in house. Don't be surprised if they are "out" of a particular item on busy days.. once the batch is through, it's through. No frozen bags to nuke around here.
Until recently, Petit was only open for lunch, but they've since added a dinner menu and hours to the offerings. This, though, is a CHEAP EATS posting and dinner in no way can be seen as cheap, so we'll leave it at that.
Lunch/brunch hours on weekdays are 8am-3pm. Weekends 9am-3pm.
