Coffee Enquiry XXVI: Colbert French Coffee & Brunch

Elaine, I once told a woman that I coined the phrase, "Pardon my French"
George Costanza (Seinfeld episode “The Soul Mate”)

Nice Paris bistro open seven days a week from breakfast until late. Colbert is a busy restaurant, with a marble bar, classic stools, decor full of old pictures and memorabilia, with a traditional Parisian all day café menu. 

The place
The place was completely packed on a Sunday noon, we got the all day breakfast, including Royale and Benedict eggs, and ham and gruyere croissant.

Breakfast time
Eggs and Croissant
The eggs were superb, perfect execution, runny yolks, and nice flavours. Croissant was nice and simple. Melted Gruyere was lovely.

Royale no cheese!
Ham & Cheese croissant
Benny and the eggs
I got a Cappuccino, really nice coffee, a bit mild, but the cream was excellent, top marks for the latte art. 

Cappuccino
Espresso machine: Gaggia
Beans: Musetti
Score: 4/5

Nice coffee, good food, lovely location, and excellent service. Just remember to be careful with the intrusive photography.

I love intrusive photography!
