Le Patio of Sens is a sandwich and salad bar restaurant located in downtown Sens, next to the market. We visited a while back and tasted their very fresh salads http://cookinginsens.wordpress.com/2011/10/26/eating-around-le-patio/ and since then, we’ve wanted to go back for the tartines. Today the weather was gorgeous and just perfect for lunch in the Le Patio garden.
The tartines came with a generous side of fresh salad greens, tomatoes and homemade mayonnaise. American portions I ordered the gluttonous ham, cheese and tomato tartine on fresh, toasted baguette. Guess I’m skipping dinner.
Jade went for the more elegant, smoked salmon with creme fraiche on a toasted baguette. She has vowed to make this at home with the smoked salmon in the freezer. Good idea
Gratuitous photo of Jade in her new sunglasses.
I love the glasses at Le Patio. Most of them have something written on them and they are so festive and colorful in the garden. The house Chablis was correct.
There’s always something new to notice at Le Patio. I guess we missed this chair the last time.
A rich chocolate cake with creme Anglaise was the perfect finish to Jade’s meal.
I, saint like, had only coffee.
We’ll be back.
