Wandering Outside the Bubble
Jamie Kuntz, A&E Editor
Breakfast lovers everywhere, rejoice! Your new favorite restaurant is right around the corner. And trust me—it isn’t the school cafeteria. Or IHOP.
Le Peep is only five minutes away from campus and is a breakfast lover’s paradise. Walking in, it seems less like a restaurant and more like your dining room at home; the walls are painted warm, inviting colors, and cute little mugs are already placed on each table, just waiting to be filled with coffee. The waiters there are also extremely friendly; by the end of the meal they feel like old friends instead of complete strangers.
The food is equally delightful. Le Peep only serves “Le Breakfast, Le Brunch, Le Lunch” but the menu isn’t limited by the lack of dinner items. There are pancakes, crepes and waffles galore, and five different kinds of eggs benedict—in addition to a fairly extensive lunch menu for those who aren’t breakfast enthusiasts. There is even a surprisingly large gluten-free menu, ensuring that those who have dietary restrictions can enjoy the most important meal of the day.
After intense deliberation, I ordered the huevos rancheros, and my friend got the Gypsy, which is one of Le Peep’s Panhandle skillet dishes. To say the food was delicious would be an understatement. The huevos rancheros came with a piece of grilled flatbread instead of the usual tortilla, and were covered with potatoes, eggs, salsa, refried beans, cheese and sour cream. If you don’t like one of those, don’t worry; you can pretty much substitute anything you want with very little hassle.
If you ever find yourself with a hankering for some delicious breakfast food, make sure to check out Le Peep. It’s definitely worth the time and money. But if you need a little extra incentive, check out the specials options at http://lepeeptexas.com/, where you can look up discounts on certain meals on weekdays. Delicious, cheap and right around the corner—what more could a hungry college student ask for?
