Gourmet Breakfast @ Le Peep
Right before I left to go out of town for Christmas Vacation, I visited Le Peep Restaurant in Nashville and enjoyed one of the best breakfast experiences I have had in a while! I had received many recommendations from local Nashvillians to try out Le Peep and I'm really glad I did!
All I can say is WOW....this place is even better than I expected. I have to make a giant PEEP about this place because the food and the service is just THAT good! I thought that if I kept eating the staff would have to roll me out in a wheelbarrow LOL!
The manager, Brenda Snook, was really friendly and answered all of the questions I had about the restaurant. Brenda has been with the restaurant for a number of years and now leads the staff of about 15 people. My server, Mark, was also very attentive. Many of the staff members have worked together here for so long that they are like a well-oiled machine and all recognize the importance of teamwork. Brenda says that about 1/4 of their clientele are repeat patrons. As I sat there that morning enjoying my breakfast, Brenda knew many of the diners on a first name basis. Diners are greeted with a smile as they walk through the door and it is this friendly customer service that has kept Le Peep around for so long.
Almost everything at Le Peep is made from scratch. This was evident to me because the food looks AND tastes fabulous! Take a peek........
I had this Peppermint Mocha to start things off and boy was this a GREAT start!
The real Peppermint Pieces topping this Mocha is SUCH a great touch!
More on this fresh-squeezed orange juice in a minute.......
Their Christmas decorations were great!
This Orange Juicer is Amazing!!! I really don't think you can get any fresher than this: Whole, fresh oranges are placed in the top of the juicer -->
....... Oranges are split open and squeezed through the juicer -->
...Fresh Orange Juice pours into the glass which is then brought directly to your table. Like I said....I really don't think you can get any more FRESH than that!
I love Christmas Ornaments!
Mimosa made with fresh squeezed orange juice
Bloody Mary - I've never been a fan of Bloody Mary's but this one was too pretty not to try!
The garnish is so pretty!
Looks like I was well hydrated during Breakfast, right?
Stuffed French Toast with Fresh Strawberries and Whipped Cream stuffed with cream cheese and drizzled with warm maple syrup. This was so decadent and savory....I loved it!
The fresh strawberries added such a sweet touch :-)
I just adore the decor of this restaurant!
Get Benaddicted - Eggs Benedict the Le Peep Way! Two poached eggs placed on lean ham and a toasted English Muffin topped with creamy Hollandaise. It comes served with "Mom's Sassy Apples" and Peasant Potatoes.
I've never really been a fan of poached eggs but this dish is really good! The ham and English muffins are great :-)
I could have taken another order of "Mom's Sassy Apples"....they are FABULOUS!
The potatoes are perfectly seasoned as well.....
The White Lightening - Lean Diced Chicken, onions, green chilies and blended cheese topped with fresh sliced avocado, diced tomatoes and a side of salsa
I have been reintroduced to the world of Omelets through this White Lightening Omelet! I would definitely have this one again...and again....and again...
The Dawn Breaker - Eggs scrambled together with mushrooms and crisp bacon. Topped with melted jack and cheddar cheese, tomatoes and onions.
This really combines everything that I love in one place! I am also TOTALLY obsessed with mushrooms so this dish made my day!
