Last Saturday John and I went out to see my parents in Woodstock and attend a concert at the Opera House. Before we headed back to the city the next morning we all ate breakfast at a new restaurant on the square, La Petite Crêperie.
Located on the Woodstock square, this tiny French restaurant was quite nice. We opted to sit outside, hence the pink cast from the umbrella that you see in the following pictures.
I ordered a breakfast crêpe, la compléte, of "fried egg with country ham, mushroom, Gruyere and pommes rissoles" and a lightly dressed side salad.
My mother ordered the french toast du jour with carmelized apples. Though a bit too sweet for my tastes, this was comfort food at its finest. John and my father each ordered the eggs benedict and my parents shared their dishes with one another.
Everything we ordered was made with fresh ingredients and great attention to detail. The owners, Kristine Ferru and the French-born Frank Ferru, were very pleasant and friendly and spoke with all of the patrons.
Before leaving I was sure to buy a tiny brioche. It was excellent. I highly reccomend La Petite Crêperie if you are in the Woodstock area. The service was excellent, the restaurant attractive, and the food was high quality.
My only complaint is that the second time I dined at La Petite Crêperie I ordered the Santa Fe benedicte which is described on the menu as "two poached eggs, fresh salsa, avocado, and sour cream." When mine arrived it had these things, as well as Canadian bacon and Hollandaise sauce. They either made me a regular eggs benedict, realized they messed up, and put the other ingredients on top because they didn't feel like making another or they just neglected to include these ingredients on their menu so vegetarians should beware and ask their server about these "extra" ingredients.
La Petite Crêperie serves lunch Tuesday to Saturday from 11 am to 2:30 pm, dinner Tuesday to Thursday from 5 pm to 9 pm and Friday and Saturday from 5 pm to 9:30 pm, and breakfast on Sunday from 9 am to 2 pm. Dishes are priced between $4 and $20.
