La Bouche Cafe, Hoboken, NJ –
They import pastries from Balthazar and Bouchon. They had me there.
I envision having brunch here every Saturday after walking my pet pig. We’d order the eggs benedict with salmon and mushrooms. Or on a hot summer afternoon, a cold homemade lemonade. People-watch while sitting in one of the cute tables outside, sipping a glass of iced latte.
I’ve had all the above + one of the chicken paninis. Quality food. Charming ambience. Friendly staff. Key ingredients to a happy customer.
