While trying to find a place to eat for lunch, a suggestion for La Galette French Bakery. There is never an argument from me when someone wants to go there so that’s where we went for a revisited review of a Wichita By E.B. favorite.

Anytime you step inside, the very first thing that catches your eye is the dessert options. There are just so many to name but don’t be intimidated. The staff knows what each item is and can help you navigate your way through the endless delicious options.
If you want my suggestion, go with the St. Tropez. While similar to a cake, the rich cream-filled brioche gets its name from its hometown of origin, St. Tropez, France. To my knowledge, you cannot get it anywhere else. Most people will order it as dessert, I usually have it as an appetizer. Don’t judge.
On our visit to lunch, we ordered the salmon over pasta with a bowl of lentil soup and the turkey on croissant. The salmon was part of their lenten meal. It was incredibly filling and made me question why I ordered the lentil soup…. until I actually ate the lentil soup and was reminded why. It’s one of the best in town. Back to the pasta though, the noodles were smothered in a delicious cream sauce that paired perfectly with the salmon. I loved how flaky the salmon was, it fell apart and literally melted in my mouth. The turkey on croissant is a common favorite and ordered on every visit. It’s so simple by design but is executed flawlessly.
We are never let down on any visit to La Galette. Our only gripe is we wish they were open for dinner. It’s one of the few restaurants I can think of where we are greeted by nearly every employee and thanked when we leave. They treat every customer like family and we love that.
Here’s the menu:
