Genessee Royale Bistro arrives in the West Bottoms 

Page 3 of 3

The rustic-looking pies were beautiful, but Crystal was more intrigued by another dessert, the one called Coffee Gourmand. It's a tiny mocha pot de crème — emphasis here on crème rather than coffee — sided with pretty, little house-made candies: cocoa-dusted truffles and a shiny molasses-pecan bar. The pot de crème was gone in three bites (the largest mine), which was a good thing because the lush custard left both of us slightly woozy. I had to drink a cup of the robust house coffee, the macho-sounding Bull Mountain Blend, just to counteract the richness of the coffee dessert.

We had a leisurely lunch but didn't linger too long. Schulte's newest bistro is a lot of things, but it isn't a hangout. Not yet, anyway. Once the warmer spring afternoons return, though, and the patio is in full swing, this joint may become one of the hottest hangouts in town. After all, I plan to hang out there myself.
