Voo La Voo Cafe : 2430 NE 13th Ave, Wilton Manors, FL 33305
Voo La Voo Cafe is located in a Bohemian section of Wilton Manors where there once was a large landscape business. A few years ago the landscape business closed and several small cafes and eclectic stores moved in. Jerry and I have been to the area a few times to look through the stores,and there is an amazing classic record store there. However it was always so busy in the various cafes and hard to find parking, so we never ate there. Finally we decided one afternoon when I was working from home to head over for brunch and see what it was like.
We chose to try out the Voo La Voo cafe as it seemed like there would be something for both of us. This is a quaint little cafe with a French vibe to it. Chef Sylvie owns the place and you will see her walking around the restaurant making sure you are enjoying your meal. There is both indoor and outdoor seating with a few tables in each area. Placing your order is easy at the main counter inside, then they will give you a number and you choose your table. Shortly after your food is delivered to you from one of the friendly waitresses.
There are two small mascots that you will notice when you walk in the door, and they will most likely be laying around in one of the doggie beds or walking around leisurely. Not sure how that passes the food inspections, but they are extremely small.
Since it was near lunchtime, I wanted something more robust than breakfast. I opted for a turkey burger special, but it was not exactly how I thought it would come. Instead of being a burger you eat with your hands, it was a large ground turkey burger on top of both sections of the roll, then topped with a creamy mushroom gravy. The flavor was just incredible and I could not get enough of it. The dish was accompanied by red potatoes which had a decent flavor as well as a small side salad. I really was sceptical going into this meal, but pleasantly surprised at how good it was.
Jerry is a crepe guy, so he opted for the fresh crepes with mixed berries (and there were a ton of them inside), English custard cream, and raspberry coulis. He was in heaven from the explosion of flavors in his mouth as he took bite after bite. The crepes were cooked just right and the custard cream was light and fluffy. Although he says he makes the best ones at home, he had to admit that these crepes were delicious.
Both of us walked away feeling full and happy with our choices. We will definitely go back, and we even want to try some of the other places in this area.
Pricing: $-$$ depending on what you order.
