We were lucky enough to be invited to Parc Franglaises one Sunday lunchtime. We had never heard of it before but we love French food and fancied a trip out of the big city so immediately accepted the invitation.
We did of course check our the Parc Franglaises Instagram and instantly fell in love with the food they were posting. As always we also checked out Trip Advisor which got us even more excited about trying their food as all the reviews were raving about the delicatessen.
We jumped on the train at Brixton and 15 minutes later we had arrived, it’s crazy how far you can get in such a short space of time. Parc Franglaises was a 15 minute walk from the station so not far at all.
When we arrived we were greated by the two owners who told us take a seat. The cafe was buzzing full of people and if we had arrived 10 minutes later we would have struggled to get a seat which is always a good sign.
The deli was incredibly charming and we could tell it was a place the locals loved to visit everyone seemed to know of each other. The decor was enchanting and warm which we loved and it is a place we could spend hours at working away.
The menu was amazing there was so much to choose from that we both struggled to decide what to order. One of the things we loved about the deli was the fact you could see all the sandwich fillers, cold meats, salads and cheeses in the counters they all looked so fresh and delicious that is made it even harder to make a decision.
Rach went for a sausage, bacon and cheese sourdough baugette a combination she had not tried before but absolutely loved. Rach also opted for a side of potato salad an absolute favourite of hers so that went down an absolute treat. Annie went for a classic tuna and sweetcorn melt on a sourdough baguette with a side of Greek salad which were both so tasty and flavoursome.
We both agreed that the deli were incredibly generous with their portion sizes. Sometimes you can order a baguette and after a couple of bites the filling has gone but that is not the case at Parc Franglasis.
For dessert (yes of course we managed to squeeze in dessert) we had a slice of gluten free lemon cake which was one of the best gluten free cakes we have ever tried infact if they hadn’t of said we wouldnt have even known it was gluten free. We enjoyed our slice of cake over a Mocha and Hot chocoalte.
If you ever fancy a trip out of London then you should definitely visit Parc Franglaises we have our fingers crossed that they open another store slightly more central so we can visit all the time!
