Even from the street, Cafe Bretton evokes a sense of the French countryside, looking like a mini-chateau nestled into the Severna Park landscape. As you step inside the sensation continues, with an extensive wine list that prominently features vintages from the Loire Valley, as well a menu that draws on the culinary traditions of France.
For your main dish, you might consider the steak au poivre finished with a brandy cream sauce, or the Bretton-style duck breast topped with a blackberry and port wine sauce. Whatever you choose, Yelp reviewers say you should be sure to leave room for dessert, as this place serves up a rotating selection of French specialties, including creme brulee, chocolate mousse, and creme-filled eclairs. Insider tip: if you want to go easy on your wallet, make a reservation for one of the "early bird" sittings, which offer the same menu at reduced prices.
