Le Gourmand is a classy French restaurant on Bridge Road. It compares well with other restaurants in the precinct when it comes to ambience and food with flair. The manager is friendly and engaging and likes to chat.

The menu is cheerful and includes famous sausages and great pasta for lunch at value prices.

I had just arrived from Adelaide early one Sunday morning and was looking for great coffee and a hearty brunch. I contemplated the Spanish omelette which looked amazing at a nearby table. The menu is comprehensive over several pages so there are plenty of options.

A friend had recommended the house made sausages at Le Gourmand so I felt compelled to try them. So I ordered the Eggs benedict with a Toulouse sausage on the side. The portion was large with plenty of ham with the eggs and with what seemed a cheesy version of a hollandaise sauce on top. I could be wrong. In any case I enjoyed it.

The highlight was the house made sausage which was a true sausage lovers delight with high meat content and not too fatty. And full of flavour.

Le Gourmand serves great coffee also.

The restaurant is ambient in a kind of French way with meats hanging on hooks for all to see, exposed brick and cool leather bench with timber tables and polished concrete floor.

It has one of the best vibes on Bridge Road.

The manager converses with several locals that are regulars it seemed.
