Today began with a beautiful sunrise over the CBD.
Le Miel et la lune had been on my wishlist for some time. A friend had visited last week and confirmed the food was good, so MerlinFan and I decided to head over there with AH this morning for a late brunch.
Le Miel is located at the intersection of Cardigan and Elgin St.
It was full when we got there, so we were asked to wait on one of the windows like a few other people.

MerlinFan chose their Lamb Burger.
|Lamb burger $17.50|
MerlinFan said all the components of the dish were great on their own. The sweet chilli with sour cream went nicely with the potatoes. The lamb was really soft and succulent - the juices were just oozing out as she cut into it. MerlinFan said the tzatziki and the beetroot relish were slightly sweet and the cheddar cheese not particularly salty - everything was on the sweet side so after a while, MerlinFan felt as though she needed a bit more saltiness to cut through the sweetness. Overall, MerlinFan still stated it was a really good lamb burger.
I had the French Toast. Or rather, it had me at "butterscotched banana."
|French toast $16.50|
The butterscotch soaked into the soft bananas, seeped and mingled with all the maple syrup. The brioche french toast was sinfully buttery, soaking up all that rich sauce. Throw in some bacon to cut through the sweetness and you've got a winner. It sounded good on paper and even better in reality. What's there not to love, really.
AH had the Vegetarian Breakfast.

We were pleasantly surprised when a few minutes later, the same waitress brought AH a juice anyway, apologising again.
|Apple, carrot, celery & ginger juice (free)|
The waitress apologised again as we went to pay, and yes, AH had her breakfast and juice on the house. The food was good and we were happy with how the cafe and our waitress dealt with the situation. It is always refreshing when a restaurant shows that it does care about customer satisfaction and making our dining experience a positive one despite whatever unforeseen mishaps that might occur.
