Since everyone keeps asking what is the French Creek Bistro like? Have you tried it? Well, this morning I tried it.
I dropped in to try the breakfast this morning. I was greeted by a charming young lady, Claudia, who is the owner’s daughter and who just moved here from Vernon to help her folks open the place. Her father is the baker and is the same gentleman who owned the restaurant /bakery before he sold it and it burned down. The reason they took so long to open is that after construction the RDN made them replace all the just finished drywall and the outside siding.
I ordered a Back Bacon and Egg Sandwich and a coffee. Both were good and served quickly. Claudia then advised that the Cinnamon buns are amazing. The other in-house baked goods include sausage rolls, apple strudel, etc., all baked fresh daily and ready for take-out.
French Creek Bistro is open Monday to Saturday from 8-3. Breakfast is served from 8-11and the Breakfast menu is pretty regular although if you are really hungry you could tuck into Steak & Eggs for $15. For lunch they have soups, sandwiches and salads as expected and everyday they post a specials board. Claudia told me that lunch time has been really busy.
But soon, they will also be open for dinner serving up Schnitzel, Fish & Chips, and other dinner fare. And they are getting a liquor licence so will have beer on tap and a selection of wines.
The Bistro seats 26 at tables and 10 at the counter. Need to keep up on the news or catch the game? There are 3 large flat screens just for you. Personally, I think it’s the French Creek Diner with home cooked, no nonsense, good Diner food. With amazing Cinnamon Buns!
Give it a try. French Creek Bistro is next to Sam’s Sushi at the corner of Wembley and 19A in French Creek.
