With some visiting friends we decided to have Sunday brunch at La Caille. We were hoping to walk around the beautiful grounds, but because of weather and slippery ground this was not possible. Brunch is served at La Caille starting at 10:00 am. (ending at 2:00 p.m.) We booked for 12:00. Interestingly this meant that by the time we finished our meal, the place emptied out. The brunch menu is heavy on omelets. I selected filet mignon benedict (basically eggs and ham with a small filet side) $39, wife had sea bass. The meals were served with freshly baked croissants. We preferred to have some bread. We asked for that, and they freshly baked a whole loaf for us (their excellent bread is normally served at dinner time.) They even packed the remainder of the loaf for us to take home. Wife thought seabass was excellent, for me the eggs were fine, but the small filet could have been more tender. Our friends really liked their meals. The friend had asked for a Bloody Mary which has somehow been forgotten. When we reminded the waitress of this omission, they apologized, brought the drink and offered us free deserts. A gesture we really appreciated.
We tried to finish the meal with espressos all around. Unfortunately, the coffee served was not espresso. The amount served in the cups had too much water, and the taste was not there. We discussed this extensively with the waitress serving us, and I am sure in future they will fix the problem. My guess is that their espresso machine requires tuning by an experienced barista.
The service by our waitress was excellent. She was helpful and good humored and took our criticism in stride. It was very nice to have a waitress who really took her job very seriously.
I would recommend the brunch at La Caille, especially in good strolling weather, to enjoy the beautiful grounds. I must emphasize though that the great food, service and ambiance does not come cheap.
