Pardon My French Cafe and Wine Bar

Posted Sunday, November 9th, 2008 12:34 am GMT -5 in Food

My wife and I decided to stop by the new restaurant in Eagan that I saw while running last week. Pardon My French is a new bakery, cafe and wine bar located in the Thomas Lake Center at 1565 Cliff Road (in the same strip mall as Axel’s Bonfire Eagan location).

Google turns up a few other people writing about this place, but I didn’t see their official site until after we visited. I love prosciutto, so even though we were there during breakfast, I had to try the Prosciutto Deja┬áVu:

You’ll swear you’ve had this tasty sandwich before. Buttered Poppy Seed Baguette with Prosciutto, Swiss cheese, Tomato and Lettuce. $6.50

It was very good, but I think next time I want to try the Haute Ham sandwich. The pastries and baked goods in the case were beautiful, but I didn’t sample any on this visit. My only disappointment was that all of their soft drinks were cans or plastic bottles – no fountain drinks.

The space is large and had a nice vibe (although I wouldn’t really consider it French, aside from the music). I love to see local, non-chain places like this, but I find it hard to believe they can last in this location. Uptown? Maybe. An Eagan strip mall a mile off the freeway? Doubtful (unfortunately)…
