Café P'tit Dessert in Metz, France

Updated: May 29




Hey, you! 😘


If you're following me on Instagram (click here), then you've probably seen the posts I shared about our experience at the restaurant, Café P'tit Dessert in Metz, France.




I didn't think about writing about it here after posting the IG Reels and Photos online, but clearly it's one of the few restaurants I've been to lately that has left a mark, so I thought I would.




Sadly, there aren't a lot of places that are opened on Sunday in Metz.. On the top of my head, I can maybe think of 4-5 places. This is probably the reason why the streets of Metz are pretty dead and quiet on Sundays.


I started following Café P'tit Dessert's instagram account when they first opened, if I'm not mistaken, about a year ago. I kept telling myself to make time to go check it out but you know how it is - life happens.


But we finally did last April! 😁😁




Cafe Pti Dessert is a quaint and cozy place which serves brunch food like nowhere else in Metz! It has a small dining room, in fact we were quite lucky because we got there at opening time and only one table was left! They do not accept reservation so I guess it could be a bit tricky or just pure luck. I've seen several people coming in to have a meal but we're told to come back later. Another thing as well is that they are closed on Mondays and Tuesdays. The Husband and I wanted to eat there on a Tuesday a few weeks ago and we were rather disappointed to see the closed sign on the door.




I am truly amazed by the food in this place. They have managed to turn something quite simple like an Avocado Toast or Pancake into dishes bursting with incredible flavors at each spoonful. But what surprised me the most was their French Toast, which I'm not typically a fan of. I now realize that until last week, I had never had good French Toast. 😁😁




S and I ordered the same thing - Avocado Toast ( 9€ + 3.50€ for the add-ons) - French country bread, guacamole, sliced avocado, red currant, feta cheese, roasted pistachios, and chives. We also had smoked salmon and a poached egg as add-ons.




The Husband ordered the Savory Pancake (11€). It was not served as you can see in the photo above. We took a video for our IG Reels and he took a big bite before I could take a photo. 😂😂 Hahaha. This was made of pancakes, sunny side up egg, cheddar cheese, arugula, parmesan, and bacon. This can also be served with smoked salmon or avocado instead of the bacon. He also forgot to ask for maple syrup, which is available if requested. He absolutely loved this!




Although the pancake and avocado toasts were delicious, the piece de resistance was definitely the French Toast (10€) - caramelised brioche, caramel, sea salt, hazelnut, strawberries, and whipped cream which the 3 of us shared. As I mentioned earlier, I am not typically a French toast fan because I find it too "eggy". This French Toast was anything but eggy. The bread wasn't soggy, in fact the edges were wonderfully crispy. It was over the top delicious in a very very good way!! If I could, I probably could eat this every day, but obviously that wouldn't be too healthy. But I've been craving for this since April 3! If all goes well, I'll be having some this Friday. I cannot wait! Hahaha. 🤞🤞




Now's the part that I didn't like - The Matcha(5€). It was very unbalanced and tasted muddy, so it wasn't pleasant at all. I've had much better Matcha elsewhere in Metz. I'm probably gonna get a latte the next time.




They also have desserts such as Tiramisu and Chocolate Mousse and I've heard great things about them. I debated whether or not to buy some to bring home. In the end, I didn't.




But I did bring home a cookie. If you know me personally, then you know I could not NOT bring home something. This Gianduja Hazelnut Chocolate Cookie (5.50€) was like everything we had that day, it was delicious. 😋
