THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Cafe Lavande Restaurant Review

: It's worth seeking out this hidden haven off Girard in La Jolla, as Café Lavande feels like you are dining at a friend's cozy home, with its rustic cottage charm and low-key convivial ambience. Diners linger over meals in the intimate setting, as the European-style food warrants savoring. Start with either vichyssoise or a traditional French onion soup. The seasonal salads stand out, like the pomegranate, Valencia orange and beets dotted with Danish blue and polenta croutons, spritzed with a Champagne vinaigrette---good with a crisp Sancerre. The black-truffle macaroni and cheese reaches a pinnacle of sinfulness and is worth every calorie. Classics like steak au poivre or steak frites satisfy, while the croque monsieur makes for a fine lunch. Crêpes Suzette and chocolate mousse are a fitting French-style finish.
