Cafe Dijon has been open for a little more than a year and soon after opening became one of our favorite weekend brunch spots. So it was an clear choice when I was making my list of must try restaurants during San Antonio Restaurant Week.
The French inspired restaurant’s partners source locally with local farms and purveyors to offer natural, fresh and seasonal menu items. In addition to their standard menu they have a changing brunch menu on the weekends that includes items such as red velvet pancakes, carrot cake waffles, and strawberry jalapeno chicken biscuits.
I chose Duck Voul Vant for my first course – three puff pastry cups filled with Brie cheese and topped with an apple chutney. Although light and airy they were packed with flavor.
Torn between the Chicken Crepes and Duck Tostadas I ultimately decided to continue with the Duck theme. The tostadas were a perfect balance of black bean puree, duck confit, and fried egg.
The final dessert course was a trio of mini bite size offerings that included a decadent mini chocolate tart topped with candied almonds & orange, lemon ming and ginger cream puff, and a blueberry lavender macaron. While all three were delightful and I hate to play favorites, the tart won my tastebuds over and left me wanting more.
