A French Connection 

By Kerry Pipes


If you’re looking for a serious breakfast with a French twist then you are now in luck. This past July saw the arrival of Cafe Suzy Q inside the longtime Mansfield staple of Ray’s Pharmacy. Café Suzy Q is the latest restaurant from George Delia. He’s been in the restaurant business for more than three decades and was the entrepreneur behind the original Napoli’s in Mansfield and Mario’s Pizza in Grand Prairie. His newest restaurant puts the focus squarely on breakfast and its onsite bakery. The results are très bon!

Though the Delia family has operated Italian and Greek restaurants in the past, there’s no mistaking the cornerstone of Café Suzy Q is breakfast. From omelets and crepes to waffles and pancakes, the first meal of the day takes precedence here. Though it should be pointed out that they also provide several lunch choices as well. Burgers, sandwiches, soups and salads are available to satisfy that afternoon hunger. No matter what you have, if you’re still hungry, or are just looking for a sweet treat, their bakery will satisfy that craving with cakes, pies and other fresh pastries. With such a focus on breakfast it should come as no surprise that they rely on the finest of ingredients such as insisting on only organic eggs as the cornerstone in all of their omelets and crepes.

The Delia’s newest restaurant is truly a family affair. George and son Peter can be found keeping an eye on day-to-day operations and working in the kitchen, George’s wife Dolores handles much of the back office and paperwork, and daughter Valentina oversees the bakery. Another daughter also spends time working here. Though there are a handful of employees, there is always a Delia onsite.

 

Family Business

Twenty-five year old Peter Delia sat down with us recently to describe the family’s approach to creating and operating Café Suzy Q. “The spot is a great, well-known Mansfield location,” he says of the Ray’s Pharmacy location. “We thought it was time to open a great breakfast place for families to come and enjoy.” So far, he says, weekend mornings have generated the biggest crowds. They have a couple of dozen tables and booths and can seat around 100 customers. They are even preparing to have patio seating outside for when the weather is nice. “Breakfast is our top priority here,” says Peter. “We offer some lunch items but we really think we offer superb breakfast items. And our baked goods are not to be missed.”

The interior of Café Suzy Q has an ever-so-slight French feel to it. There are dark wooden accents adorning beige-colored walls. White tablecloths and white butcher paper cover the tables. Sheer white curtains and a marble floor finish off the look.

A glass display case houses the baked goods for the day tempting customers to finish their meal with a sweet. All the cakes and pies are made fresh on site. Peter says they have been busy catering several events lately serving as many as 200 guests at a time.

Though the early focus has remained solely on breakfast, Peter says many customers had been requesting dinner so they are now open Friday and Saturday until 9:00 p.m.

The Delia family is proud of Café Suzy Q and Peter touts its family-operated pedigree. “You don’t find that many true family-run businesses these days,” he says. “But you will find all that connotes here at Café Suzy Q.”

 

No French Resistance

 

On our visit it was hard to decide what to order but the much-talked-about omelet came out on top. The Meat Lovers Omelet featured three of those organic eggs, fresh ham, bacon, sausage and American cheese all whipped up and served steaming hot. A side of thinly sliced hash browns was the perfect accompaniment. But there was no stopping there, we also added a side of their fluffy pancakes and French toast that included the sweetest concoction of cinnamon-flavored syrup you ever had. No trip to Café Suzy Q is complete without something from the bakery. A small slice of rich and creamy layered red velvet cake and a sampling of the chocolate mousse were the perfect finale.

Café Suzy Q is located at 1831 E. Broad St. in Mansfield. It’s open daily, call 817-225-9222 or visit online at www.cafesuzyq.com
