Brunch at Little White House, Fort Langley, B.C.
Thursday, September 27, 2012

One of my friends discovered a very cute french-inspired brunch and afternoon tea place called Little White House located in Fort Langley, B.C. It’s an old heritage house that’s divided into a salon cafe (click for menu) and rooms overfilling with vintage home accessories, clothing, and jewelry.

The dining room of their salon cafe has a whimsical feel to it. The unpolished walls of the old heritage house and the creaking floor adds an antique charm to the room. They’ve put a lot of thought into creating the perfect backdrop for a Parisian-inspired afternoon tea but unfortunately, the food offerings failed to match expectations.

On the right side of the old heritage house is the entrance to their merchandise boutique.

The left side is the entrance to their salon cafe which serves brunch and afternoon tea.

Lavender lemonade ($2).

Eggs benedict ($11) with a spinach salad. The benedict was average but the spinach salad was quite nice. Caramelized walnuts, cranberries, goat cheese and spinach in a sweet vinaigrette.

Stuffed french toast ($11)

Savoury crepes ($11) with mushrooms and hollandaise sauce. This was my favourite dish that day. Lots of fried mushrooms inside a home-made crepe.

Rustic omelette ($11) with tomato, potato, and bacon.

French onion soup ($7). This was sort of a disappointment. I was looking forward to a hot bowl of soup covered in bubbly cheese and croutons. The savoury sable on the spoon was nice though.

Noon tea sampler for 2 ($24). The presentation was nice and the savoury offerings and scones were quite good. Unfortunately, the sweet pastries were a bit of a disappointment. For the cupcakes, the icing was too sweet, and the cake was a bit dry. The macarons were not good. Shortbread cookies were good though.

    We were planning on going there but it all looks so disappointing. The ones on Vancouver Island were all better, they had lovely fresh sandwiches and fresh pastries. We have been to one here on the mainland and I found it sickly sweet. Not pleasant and not true English that's for sure.
