Brunching at LeSel is like sitting down to a thoughtfully prepared French breakfast with that one individual (we all know at least one person like this!) who is somehow perfect, while still being down to earth and the warmest, friendliest person you’ve ever met. They’re effortlessly chic and beautiful without looking like they try at all. You should feel unnerved by their je ne sais quoi, but somehow instead you feel as relaxed as you would be while engulfed in a hug from someone who thinks you can do no wrong.
The first time I had brunch at LeSel was with my darling friend, Christina. She’s the person version of LeSel. Poised, gracious and gorgeous. I enjoyed the combination of her company with LeSel so much so that it instantly became my favorite new breakfast spot in Nashville. I went online and immediately made a reservation for the following Saturday so that my Mum and I could go together!
My second time at LeSel I had to take some photos for you so that you will hopefully obtain a glimpse of what I’m poorly attempting to convey! Since a picture is worth a thousand words, hopefully these images can explain its charm better than I can!
(It’s a tradition for me to order Eggs Benedict everywhere I got to brunch at least once. I measure a restaurant’s brunch-worthiness based on their ability to prepare this dish!)
(What is more lovely after a filling meal than a warm cup of tea?)
(How can I not like LeSel based solely on this piece of plastic animal and spray painted art?!)
What makes a place the perfect brunch spot for you? Is it the food, charm, location or a combination of all three?
