Back in the Spring I noticed that an empty space was under construction in my neck of the woods and what appeared to be a restaurant was in the works. I decided to stop and chat with a worker and was excited to hear that a French/African Cafe would be opening come Summer. When it opened I stopped in for brunch with my honey bunch and just had to go back with my girls.
Cafe Rue Dix is a french themed cafe with a menu filled with French/Senegalese style dishes. The exterior is a beauty in itself with glass doors that open so that you can enjoy the weather and the interior is cozy and quite cute.
The brunch menu is not very extensive but it includes some interesting dishes at reasonable prices.
When I went with my boyfriend I had the Smoked Salmon Omelette and had goat cheese added to it, it was very delicious. This time I decided on the French Toast topped with strawberries and caramelized bananas with a vanilla creme sauce, and a cafe au lait to wash it down.
The coffee was strong with a nice amount of foam and I loved the cute little cup and presentation. Speaking of presentation, the French Toast was so beautiful that I didn’t want to touch it…
It tasted just as good as it looked and I ate every last drop. My cousin Mo got the French Toast too and enjoyed it as well as her African Iced Tea…
I just love drinks served in Mason Jars!
Gina had the Grilled Chicken Sandwich with Salad and cleared her plate as well. She said it was very good!
Cafe Rue Dix has very tasty food with large portions and reasonable prices. There is also a full bar with daily happy hour specials. The cafe is a great addition to the neighborhood and I know that I will be a frequent visitor. I can’t wait to try the dinner menu and the infamous doussant, Cafe Rue Dix’s version of the cronut. I heard it’s quite delicious.
Cafe Rue Dix is located at 1451 Bedford Ave & Park Place; Crown Heights, Brooklyn www.caferuedix.com
