La Boulangerie Marie, Cedar City, Utah

It is always a pleasure to find fresh food, made from scratch.  On a journey that took us through Utah we discovered a small restaurant/bakery featuring French fare.  Upon entering we received a friendly greeting and were quickly offered a seat.  It was a Sunday and so the featured menu was brunch served from eleven to three.  We were presented with fresh, hot wheat rolls (sourdough was also available) that were delicious.  The coffee, served in petite cups, was as smooth as silk and our cups were continually refreshed.  

The brunch menu was a set price and offered soup or salad as a starter followed by several selections for the main course.   We could choose from a variety of savory crepes.  Other choices included quiche, pain perdue (French bread pudding) and eggs benedict.  We selected the seafood crepe and eggs benedict.  Each were accompanied by pomme duchesse (French-style piped potatoes) and garnished with fresh fruit.  Both were excellent.

To finish the meal we had our choice of desserts.  We selected a chocolate eclair and lemon tart.  One of the things we we love about French pastries is that they are not excessively sweet.  The flavor of the ingredients shine without being overshadowed by superfluous sugar.  Both of our choices met our expectations and were enjoyed with more coffee! 

Less than a year old La Boulangerie Marie is rapidly gaining traction in the local area.  The restaurant provides baked goods for other local eateries and is preparing to expand their baking hours to meet the growing demand.  In addition to the Sunday brunch that we had the opportunity to enjoy they also offer breakfast and lunch specials throughout the week.

Located at 255 N. Main Street, La Boulangerie Marie can be hard to spot when approaching from the south.  The building sets at at an angle.   The side of the building faces the street with the restaurant entrance (seen at left) located at the north end.  Ph: 435.233.8466
