MELBOURNE | Croque Monsieur is the new venture from the people behind French creperie and galette spot, Roule Galette. As you can gather from the name, the focus here is French toasted sandwiches. I visited to take some photos for What’s On Melbourne the other day.
There’s the namesake croque monsieur, a ham, Emmental cheese, and béchamel toasted sandwich, and my favourite the croque madame. The latter is what you get when you add two eggs to a croque monsieur. The ingredients are top notch, and made in house where possible.
As well as toasted sandwiches, the venue also offers an assortment of French pastries from Noisette Bakery, coffee, tea, and other drinks – alcoholic and non-alcoholic. Try the French sodas with an array of syrups.
During lockdown it’s take away only, and when restaurants open again, you’ll be able to dine in – the quaint space evokes memories of afternoons whiled away in Parisian bistros.
