Café Fanny: Start the Day Off Right!

28 Jul

Cafe Fanny Breakfast

Ah…poached eggs and café au lait in bowls!

The first time I ever tried a poached egg was at this quaint little café. Cooked on the outside, runny on the inside. Garnished with salt, pepper, and fresh herbs. Placed atop thick slices of toasted acme brand bread.

I have yet to poach an egg at home that tastes as good as the poached egg at Café Fanny.

There’s nothing like dining outside on wooden tables, with a big bowl of velvety coffee sitting next to me. I have a thing for holding a mug filled with hot liquid—it is just so comforting. The orange juice is pressed to order.


The homemade granola is famous and will leave you satisfied for hours. And the buckwheat crepes? So perfect and simple, with plain yogurt and berries.


The whole motto of this café is to evoke an ideal reality where life and work are inseparable and the daily pace leaves time for afternoon leisure. Eating together nourishes the spirit as well as the body.
