About Us

Opened in 2010 by Vanessa Laplaud, a native of Limoges, it has already established itself as a neighborhood mainstay.

We provide the warmth and intimacy of a local cafe while offering the best of continental fare. From buttery chocolate croissants to light lavender macaroons, we receive all our confections daily from a variety of select local French artisan bakers.
