Brunch at La Grande Orange

For brunch yesterday, we went to La Grande Orange, one of our favorite places (for breakfast, lunch, or dinner). It's been eight months since our last visit to LGO. There was a period of time when we were going there almost every weekend (at least once or twice a month). If we lived closer, we'd definitely go there more frequently.

As usual, it was super busy. Here's a pic showing the line going outside:

We ordered a Commuter w/ bacon and avocado ($7.25), French pancakes w/ honey, fruit, and creme fraiche ($6.75), and a large orange juice ($3.75).

The Commuter was fantastic, as usual. If you haven't tried one of these yet...go try one ASAP! It is one of the tastiest things ever...

This was our first time trying the French pancakes. The combination of pancakes, fruit, honey, and creme fraiche was very nice (and not too sweet). This one is getting added into "the rotation".

One thing I noticed that had changed (from our previous visits) was the large OJ was about half filled w/ ice cubes. When I'm paying $3.75 for OJ, I don't want any added ice! Message to LGO management - What's w/ the ice??? Are you trying to reduce costs?!?

Hopefully, it's not another eight months before we visit LGO again. I've been craving pizza for a while, so maybe we'll be back soon for some of their delicious pizza.
