Patisserie La Cigogne is a busy little, elegant-looking café that Nanny Erin paid a visit to at about 10:00 a.m. on a Friday morning. On this particular Friday morning, the café was packed to the gills with families, and she had the pleasure of sitting next to a group of 3 moms and their daughters.
La Cignone means “the stork” in French, which is not only the symbol of the deliverance of a new baby, but also represents the concepts of good luck, fidelity and happiness in Alsace (and in a lot of other places around the world). Pattiserie La Cigogne makes every effort to carry out the legacies and of Alsace and bring delicious Alsatian delicacies to its guests.
Patisserie La Cigogne presents a full, delectable breakfast menu comprised of crepes, omelets, croissants, and more. Lunch items like tortierre, quiche, and croque madame are some of the favorites on the menu.
In addition to all of the dine-in items, there is also plenty of food to take on-the-go and a delightful array of special occasion items, such as cakes and hand-crafted cookies, for birthdays, weddings, anniversaries, and the like.
Their beverage menu provides a variety of coffees and non caffeinated drinks. They also have a yummy summer smoothie that both the young and old are certain to enjoy.
While the weather was rubbish when Nanny Erin stopped in, there was a large outdoor patio that she would have enjoyed on an otherwise sunny day. The bathroom was huge and located upstairs, so moms could easily bring the little ones in the strollers with them.
Patisserie La Cigogne maintains a lovely staff, great food and excellent service. Don’t miss out on their Chocolate Festival 2010 (Oct 22 – Nov 7), when they hold their buy one (chocolate item) get one free event.
