This place buzzes morning noon and night. Stop by at breakfast and grab the Duck Confit Hash or the Eggs Benedict for just 9 bucks. If you're more of a night owl a cocktail and fried chicken Po' Boy might be more to your liking.
The New Orlean's cousin of the ever popular Peso's expect a bright room with big comfy booths, an open bar & kitchen and hearty flavorful southern bites. Don't miss the breakfast happy hour Monday - Friday 9:00 a.m. - 11:00 a.m. when 7 bucks can easily feed two.
Also a popular spot to watch the game.
I've been in love with this place from day one. Food is always a home run, which is astounding with the volume that place does! Oozing creativity from the ground up, there is so much craftsmanship in every detail of this place! Breakfast lunch and dinner ALL shine here!
Three reasons to go: 1. Shrimp grits. 2. Beignets (must admit I'm not a fan, but everyone else I know is - I'll defer to the crowd). 3. Breakfast happy hour Mon-Fri.
Laissez les Bon temp roulez! get your NOLA fix on lower Queen Anne!
Breakfast happy hour! – I am an eggs benedict lover and i can easily say that the best eggs benedict i've ever had is at toulouse. They can make it with crab (my favorite), ham or duck! I tried the buttermilk beignets for the first time recently and i had definitely been missing out, they are bites of heave. Make sure to go during breakfast happy hour, everything is cheaper and the service is still fantastic.
Most Delicious Food I've Ever Had – I've been to many restaurants in the Seattle/Eastside area and this place knocked my socks off. We had the duck confit, prawns with sausage, even thinking of it makes my mouth water. The ambience, service, everything was sensational. Agreed on other reviews, worst thing is deciding what to have. Anyone would loves and enjoys food must try this place, I promise it won't be your last time.
Don't miss breakfast! – 9-11 M-F (almost) all their breakfasts are $6! Worst thing about this place is it's so hard to decide what to have.
great breakfast great prices w/ ambiance – I went here twice last week, prices and the food was great. I had the friday sandwich "BLT" unique with dejion mustard. the other time I had a cajun breakfast with eggs and crawfish in a sauce. potatoes were wonderful too. I little unusual combinations but surprisingly delicious. good vibe and decor too. not far from Seattle center.
Toulouse Petit has a very LARGE menu – Sitting down at Toulouse Petit you will not feel as if you’re magically transported to the heart of NOLA; in fact it looks like it's older brother Pesos - just less Dia del los Muertos.
Sitting down, you will be welcomed by a great wait staff (judging the cuteness factor big and little brother have the same taste)and surprised to hear an eclectic array of music. then the menu comes, and your mind goes every direction with the vast selection in front of you!
Side note: People will complain about authenticity - we are in the PNW not NOLA. It is great food, with a Creole twist. Think of it this way, anytime someone gets blue crab in the land of King and Dungeness I am a fan.
Toulouse is also affordable, the food menu features 50 menu items priced under $5, and at least ten of their best selling cocktails are now priced at $6.95
It will take more than a few trips to work your way through the 75+ menu items; and if you’re like me you may get stuck along the way. For me, it is the fried green tomatoes with blue crab and the BBQ shrimp. One day I'll branch out, and when I do...I've got some choice to make - actually over 70.
Crowd-pleasing on several levels: options, price, scene – I am especially wary of large menus, because there's no way that a kitchen that has to cook close to 100 dishes can cook them all well and reliably. Either I chose well at Toulouse Petit or their batting average is off-the-charts, because we enjoyed everything we ordered. One trick seems to be than many of the happy hour bites ($3-$7, more or less) are served cold or with minimal cooking, so much of the work is done ahead of time. Worked for me, because the tuna tartare was pitch-perfect and the frisee salad with a poached egg and lardons was exactly as I hoped.
The architecture and decor are gorgeous, with dozens of candles on the walls and exquisite tilework on the floors, walls and even in the bathroom. I would probably not go here on a weekend night, though, as it seems to be smack in the middle of the LQA sceney-scene. Our server started out snooty until we apparently ordered her favorite dishes and she warmed up to us. Still, I definitely got a vibe that I would be underdressed and not cool enough to be seen there during the hipper hours.
I'd definitely like to sample more of the menu and try it for brunch, as that seems to garner particular raves.
The Iliad of all menus – I visited for a late night supper and so was already hungry when I arrived. The mega menu was a bit overwhelming, I was finding SO many things that sounded amazing that I found it hard to decide. I was close to ordering one of everything, you know like when you go to the grocery store hungry and buy everything that looks good? I refrained however and was pretty happy with the salad and small plate I ordered. I need to go back with a group for happy hour, 50 items $5 and under? That's how I like to sample a restaurant's menu, order lots of small plates and share, getting a lil taste of everything. All in all, was a really nice place, looking forward to trying some of their other offerings.
Citysearch Editorial Review – This Queen Anne stunner isn't "petit" in the slightest; in fact, it's big and bold in both design and flavor. Borrowing Creole tastes from New Orleans, the brasserie's menu starts with numerous Benedict and beignet offerings in the morning, heads to fried oyster or blackened shrimp po' boys for lunch, and ends in a laundry list of evening entrees that highlights the house-made charcuterie. While the Cajun-French fare is enjoyable all day, the decor is best appreciated at night, when the thousands of tiny candles that line the walls only amplify the warmth created by each hand-carved tabletop and sky-high window.
