Champagne Brunch at Cote Restaurant, Review – We recently tried out the weekend brunch at Cote. I have been to Cote many times but never for brunch, so it was all new for us. If you haven’t been before they are serve a modern French offering in a stylish environment with an emphasis on good service.
They serve several brunch classics like:
Two free range eggs, bacon, pork sausage, tomato, mushrooms and toast.
Two poached eggs on a toasted muffin with homemade Hollandaise sauce and ham.
Brioche, wild berry compote, fresh berries, crème fraiche.
Vegan sausage, field mushroom, tomato, avocado, baby spinach and sourdough toast.

Cote also offer a Champagne Brunch, it’s a set price menu (currently £16.95 in the York branch) where you choose any cooked breakfast with a juice or hot drink of your choice, and a glass of Baron de Marck Champagne. I think this is cracking value as a full English and a coffee will set you back around £13 anyway, making a glass of Champagne just £4. Alternatively, for £19.95 you can choose a light main instead.
I visited with my (almost) teenage daughter, and as I was driving, there wasn’t an opportunity for the Champers, which is always a shame! I ordered the Croque Madame, the classic ham and Comté cheese sandwich with a fried egg. I enjoyed it, it was a nice light but filling dish.
My daughter ordered the Salmon and Eggs (Smoked Salmon & Scrambled Eggs. Seven & Wye smoked salmon with scrambled eggs and sourdough toast). It was a large portion and she reported that it was very tasty. My only criticism is that I felt the presentation was somewhat lacking.
Cote has stylish surroundings and an elegant, relaxed vibe. I think a Champagne Brunch would be the perfect start to a weekend!
