La Caille

Just because brunch is $30 a plate doesn't mean it'll taste good. Codee's dad gave us a gift certificate for Sunday brunch at La Caille. I was so excited to go this morning! I've never been to La Caille but heard it is a really good place. We ate outside on the patio, next to a bunch of peacocks. The grounds and the scenery was seriosuly gorgeous! I ordered the Crepe Champignon, fresh crepes filled with trumpet royale & velvet poippine mushrooms & fresh seafood in a ginger spiked cream sauce. And Codee had the Welsh Rarebit and Pork Chop, traditional English hunt breakfast with a sauce of ale and sharp Cheddar. Needless to say, mine was disgusting! I forced down half of one crepe and ate the side of pineapple. Codee really liked his. We did get a dessert, that was way YUMMY! A fancy eclair that looked like a swan.
While we were eating, peacocks would come over and "beg" for food. We reluctantly fed one, and soon after we were surrounded by peacocks. I recorded Codee feeding one of them...
