Bastille Day

As part of my weekend with Mum we thought we would celebrate Bastille Day in style. So we headed to Eureka 89 for their Bastille Day Brunch.

The Golden Bees on the Front of The Eureka Tower

We entered via the red carpet and were escorted to the lift and up to the amazing 89th floor to be presented with glasses of Laurent Perrier Champagne a wonderful ambience and an amazing view.

Views over Fed Square

As mum and I mingled with our fellow diners we all had fun trying to find our houses and spotting familiar landmarks. Some easier to find then others. The building I live in can be seen below. Look for the tall black building in the middle distance. That's me!

Views over The Botanical Gardens towards South Yarra

Before we got too dizzy from the view and the champagne (at 10am and on an empty stomach) we were escorted into the dining the room where we were serenaded by an amazing french duo as we took our seats.

Our Beautiful Table Setting

What followed was lovely french food - croissants and baguettes with jam or homemade Nutella. Followed by a main course of truffle scrambled eggs with brioche. If that wasn't enough we were served crepes with lemon and meringue followed by a fruit platter. All washed down by glasses of chilled Laurent Perrier Champagne. (or water, tea or coffee as you wished). I picked the bubbles, of course.

Crepes with Lemon, Meringue and Vanilla Icecream

All is have to say is yummy! Thanks Eureka 89 for a great event and for the lovely company on our table. As we got up to leave satisfied and happy we were farewelled with an amazing salted caramel macaron. More deliciousness.

We left as the rain started to tumble

A wonderful way for us to start a Sunday and a fitting celebration of all things French for us.

Now for a nap.
