LC and I had the pleasure of visiting Chateau Elan last weekend. Our whirlwind trip began with a ride on a luxurious Cooper Global minibus to Philips Arena to see Sheryl Crow and George Strait in the resort’s party suite.
The following day we had massages scheduled in the afternoon so the morning was free to have a relaxing breakfast. The buffet at Versailles was just downstairs, but I didn’t want to make my own toast or wait in line for an omelette, so we took the shuttle to the restaurant at the spa, Fleur de Lis.
My Mom and I used to drive to Chateau Elan, get massages, then enjoy lunch at Fleur de Lis in our robes. What could be better? That was a few years back. Since then, the tiny space overlooking the golf course has been beautifully renovated. Unfortunately, LC and I were fully clothed on our visit, choosing a table by the window, and although the day was somewhat dreary, it was still lovely to see the ducks on the pond.
The space was refreshed and so was the menu, with the focus still on healthy food, each dish listing calories, protein, carbs, and fat. Our server brought coffee and milk as we debated over the Georgia shrimp frittata, egg white omelette, or sweet potato and smoked bacon hash, among other tempting plates.
LC decided on the egg white omelette with turkey bacon, spinach, tomatoes, onions, peppers, with the addition of feta cheese, coming in at 305 calories not including the cheese. It was served with a chive potato cake. Both were delicious.
I chose the sweet potato and smoked bacon hash sauteed with onions and peppers, served with two eggs over easy. I added a side of turkey bacon, easily pushing my 356 calorie count over 400. Some of my diced potatoes were a bit undercooked, but my eggs were perfect, with soft yolks. Neither of our breakfast entrees included toast but we didn’t miss the additional carbs. It would have been ideal with a mimosa, but unfortunately, it was Sunday before 12:30, so no mimosas for me.
We left feeling satisfied, not uncomfortably stuffed as we often do. I look forward to returning soon, but next time I’ll be wearing a robe…and nothing else.
