As you can see from the previous post, my dining experience at Counter was superb! It was so amazing, in fact, that my dad and I decided to scrap our plans to go to Teany for brunch the next morning (we've been there a ton of times already) in order to try the brunch menu at Counter. We were not sorry!
My meal was Chef Geraud's Signature Pain Perdu (from the menu: a delicious vegan twist on classic French toast with banana flambe). This was a fairly easy choice for me because I love caramelized bananas and it's rare that I eat French toast. However, all the vegan items on the menu looked delicious and I wished I could have tasted them all! I did ask the server if I could try the house-made vegan Nutella, though, and it was wonderful.
I don't care for coffee, but I like coffee-flavored sweets. In the spirit of adventure, I ordered the Chocolatey-Espresso Frappuccino (espresso-chocolate heaven with delicious vegan whipped cream and Valhrona chocolate shavings). Wow, it was like drinking a milk shake for brunch and it was fantastic!
P.S. Counter is a vegetarian, not a completely vegan, restaurant. My dad's meal was vegetarian that morning, so I didn't sample it.
