Brunch at Pistache French Bistro

Sunday Brunch at Pistache

Our criteria for Sunday was to find a café on the water and watch the day go by. We headed north to Palm Beach and detoured to the weekend quiet of Clematis Street in neighboring downtown West Palm Beach. Mere steps from the corner of Flagler and Clematis sits the charming French Bistro, Pistache. Appealing and inviting with its outdoor patio, Pistache draws you in with its urbane and polished ambiance over looking Centennial Park, and if you sit in just the right place a view of the intracoastal will seal the deal for a perfect French bistro afternoon.

Bloody Mary, Pistache

To get our brunch rolling we started off with Pistache’s signature spicy Bloody Marys, which packed good heat and good flavor.

Beef Carpaccio, Pistache

While not exactly French, we went with the Beef Carpaccio and balanced it back with French Onion Soup as the lighter side of our brunch.

The highlight for me was the Croque Madame with frites. Certainly not easy on the calories but worth every single indulgent bite, if you’re looking to splurge.

And to round out our savory, we went with the French classic Apple Tart Tatin. Having run out of vanilla ice cream we opted for coffee ice cream which proved to be quite the tasty surprise and brought the dessert full circle, with equal parts of fruit, butter and sugar goodness.
