Portland Patisserie and Grand Café at Sunday Brunch, 11 A.M.

Welcome to the photo series Eater Scenes, where Eater photographers visit some of the state's notable spots to capture them at a certain point in the day.

The interior of the Portland Patisserie and Grand Café has changed quite a bit since a preview early this year. The owners of 555 and Petite Jacqueline, Steve and Michelle Corry, have melded elegance and decadence for a classic French atmosphere that feels unique in Portland. Floor to high-ceiling windows create an airy, open sensation despite the limited amount of outdoor seating.

The pastries — savory and sweet, delicate yet rich — reflect the gilded surroundings admirably. Pastry chef Catherine Côté-Eliot's authentic crêpes and mousse cakes are particular highlights, and new selections appear regularly. Follow the company's crave-worthy Instagram account for updates.

As of August 1 fans can enjoy the offerings from sun-up to sun-down, 7 a.m. to 8 p.m daily; Happy Hour is 4 to 6 p.m., with specials on wine and beer. Check out the photos above for a look at patrons enjoying crêpes, croissants, and coffee Sunday at 11 a.m.
