Le Pichet and Café Presse support the Meatless Monday movement (known as Lundi Vert in France) by pledging to eat less and better quality meat and fish. It’s better for the planet, better for our health and more humane for animals. That is why every Monday, in addition to our regular menu, we will be featuring daily specials that don’t include meat for fish.
Today enjoy these Lundi Vert lunch specials, available while they last!
Le Pichet’s famous quiche filled with leeks, crimini mushrooms, gruyere and rich egg custard.
Thanks to the Stranger for recommending Café Presse in their recent round up of the Best Places to Drink Hot Chocolate in Seattle this Winter! Our Chocolat Chaud, made with bittersweet dark chocolate, cocoa, milk, cream and a little sugar, is available all day long both at Café Presse and Le Pichet. Enjoy a cup during these cold winter days or anytime.
Ah, it still gives us a warm feeling 6 months later! This photo of the World Champion 2018 French National Team, which now has a home on the wall near the back room at Café Presse, is the center fold-out from a copy of French newspaper L’Equipe.
Pithivier, also know as Galette de Rois in France, is a traditional dessert make with sweetened puff pastry filled with almond cream, then baked to golden brown. Although it is famously served in France on January 6th to celebrate the 12th day of Christmas, we love it all year long because it is so good! Now at Le Pichet, while it lasts, try the version made by our pastry chef Drake Jones. Drake flavors the filling with a little rum and serves the galette with vanilla creme anglais. Yummy!
