Eats | The Granary

*This new series of Eats is brought to you via my love of food photography and eating, but my lack of cooking and meal planning. We love trying new restaurants and indulging ourselves + taking pictures of pretty food without the dishes is a win win. Eats will be a portion of Eats & Hangouts where we share our favorite places to eat and hangout, anywhere we go.

Happiest Monday, folks! Welcome to the newest series here at Our Brick House of Eats & Hangouts.
We've been going to St. George quite frequently for the past 6 years and a few years back, I came across the cutest little French restaurant online. It was in Santa Clara, which is where we stay, and I decided we needed to try it sometime. Queue 3 years later and it hadn't happened yet - so, when we went on family vacation with just the 4 of us, it was a good opportunity to try it out.

Meet The Granary. The cutest little French restaurant tucked inside the old Bishop's storehouse, built in 1867. The seating is mostly outdoor under a large tree, surrounded by flowers with tables set with glass teacups and saucers. It's quite charming. And the food is exceptionally delicious.
I've had French food a handful of times - like real, authentic French food - and it definitely tops the charts in flavor and style. However, it's been many years since I've found an authentic restaurant close to me. And this is just what I was looking for. 

Two words - Quiche Lorraine. Order it. Devour it. It's salty and moist and cheesy and oniony. 
The crepes are also perfect, but beware their Creme Fraiche is the real stuff, which means it's not like whipped cream. It's a little sour (kind of like sour cream, but sweetish).
We also ordered the Continental Breakfast which was a warm croissant with fresh fruit and jam. The croissant was delicious and probably perfect with the fruit, except my kiddos guzzled the fruit before I had a chance to taste it.

We definitely want to go back for lunch sometime because French Onion Soup people! French. Onion. Soup. Plus a Reuben Sandwich. Yum! And yes, I did wear my black dress and red lipstick to channel all my inner Audrey Hepburn-ness to pretend I was in the countryside of France for a moment. Anyway, I digress. When you want need a warm breakfast and a charming place to eat, The Granary is the place to go. And just take my word for it, order the Quiche Lorraine.

Happy eats, peeps!
