Pierrot Gourmet, a European-style café and bistro is all about people watching and basking in the sun - where tables surrounded by colourful flowers face out on a bustling Rush Street. Inside, Pierrot Gourmet takes on a cozy farmhouse-inspired ambience with rustic wood panels and wrought iron accents. After the breakfast rush subsides, the restaurant is filled with shoppers refuelling on simple yet satisfying French bistro cuisine, from staple favourites such as a hearty home-made soup to a selection of French-style flatbreads, similar to a thin crust pizza with an array of toppings. Paired with a crisp glass of Sauvignon Blanc and a touch of imagination, restaurant patrons are transported to the streets of Paris!
