Before breakfast was the first meal of the day, it was part of a midday supermeal—Dinner, Breakfast, Nash & Young. Give breakfast’s solo work its proper respect with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get breakfast for two at Cafe Lafayette in Seal Beach (up to a $41.90 total value). The breakfast includes:
- Two breakfast entrees (up to a $13.95 value each)
- Two mimosas (a $7 value each)
The chefs at Cafe Lafayette whip up a morning menu of savory and sweet breakfast treats amid a comfortable eatery with cheery yellow walls and blue tabletops. Brunch buddies can practice nonoffensive wedding toasts or tawdry John Philip Sousa marches with two flutes of bubbly mimosa. The restaurant boasts a trove of more than 20 egg dishes, including the greek omelet, which teems with tomatoes, fresh basil, and feta cheese, and the spicy Cajun scrambler bedecked with pepper sausage, bacon, and gooey jack cheese. Duos can silence the yammering of sweet teeth with pleasing plates of straight-from-the-oven baked french toast, a quartet of crêpes, or a breakfast panini layered, like architecturally unsound skyscrapers, with chocolate-hazelnut spread and sliced bananas.
The food at Cafe Lafayette alludes more to a sumptuous and expensive restaurant than a simple corner café. The kitchen greets the day with Florentine omelets and mango-blueberry crepes, and toothpicks adorned with fringe or tiny semaphore flags skewer sandwiches filled with salami and provolone or waldorf chicken salad at lunch. Dinnertime is when the upscale flavors are at their best, as gnocchi with wild mushrooms and beef stroganoff prepared with short rib share space with the house Pollo Di Lafayette, a chicken breast stuffed with spinach, walnuts, and blue cheese and topped with creamy pesto.
