Today reminds me of the scrumptious Sunday brunch at Marseille’s Place Lorette I enjoyed earlier this month. The Moroccan feast was light yet fulfilling, flavorful and unexpected.

Fresh flavors danced on my taste buds which I’m guessing were ignited with a delightfully sweet peppermint tea.

Next came a fresh feast with a variety of Moroccan breakfast breads such as naan and a pancake-like griddle cake.I topped mine with either honey, fig jam (or was it strawberry?) or orange marmalade. Le Paneir

Two more pastries were similar to baklava, heck, maybe they were, and were pillows of light pastry enveloping a sweet mixture of honey and nuts.

Although I thought this would taste strange, cottage cheese with shrimp and crab was probably the best dish ate during the trip to Marseille. It was served very cold which let the flavors pop.

The meal ended with a crisp, red apple served by the host in a silver bowl. What a perfect ending to delicious meal.

Place Lorette is located in Le Paneir, Marseille’s oldest quarter. It has a carefree, Bohemian vibe and home to funky shops with one-of-kind art, vintage treasures and unique decor.

Place Lorette has the same progressive vibe as the rest of Le Panier and offers indoor and outdoor seating. Of course, I recommend sitting outside to watch the world pass by.
