Now that we have left our sweltering summer weather behind, weather is perfect for outdoor running and I can flee the monotony of the treadmill. With that in mind, my family and I headed over to Fort DeSoto Park and enjoyed a lovely four mile run. After our run, we were more than ready to find something to eat. Even though it was noon, some of us were ready for breakfast and one of us wanted lunch. Beverly's La Croisette was the perfect spot to fit everybody's needs. Beverly's is a nice and bright cafe located on Gulf Boulevard. It is nothing fancy, but it has a lot of character. I especially loved the pencil drawings on the wall of famous people, like Elvis, among others. There is booth seating or tables and chairs. We grabbed a booth next to the window and in the corner, so that we could see the whole room.
We started off by ordering a couple of mimosas. We ordered the Bungee omelette with "Krab," mushrooms, and cheese which was good, but not my favorite. However, I loved the Parametier omelette, which was filled with fried potatoes and swiss cheese. Along with your omelette order, you get a choice of sides and we chose the grits and the home fries. The grits weren't very good and we didn't take more than one bite, but the home fries were nicely seasoned and very good. Also, we loved the choice of toast or croissant for bread, and we both chose the croissant, which was nice. My son ordered a burger and fries, which was very good. Along with all of this, we ordered on pancake that was huge and we all enjoyed sharing that as it was a mighty tasty pancake. This was a very lovely spot and great for locals and tourists, alike.
