"Louis la Vache" has been absent from the blogosphere for weeks because he's been busy opening his new espresso shop, Café-Saint-Honoré. The shop opened on 15 November and has been well-received by the community. "Louis" et Mme la Vache thank all of you for your support!
0600 heures, le 15 novembre: le saint est ouvert!
Louis, sitting on his milking stool and holding a cup of coffee, greets customers as they enter.
Our first 2 customers!
On Saturdays, buy two pounds of coffee, get half a pound free!
Louis has his own blend of coffee, Melange Sainte Vache, "Holy Cow" blend, along with Carburant de Grenouille, "Frog Fuel," which has a hint of chicory. There is also Sans Plomb, "Unleaded," for the decaf drinker. "Louis" has been authorized as a Bodum distributor.
More of "Louis's" coffees. Café-Saint-Honoré offers 12 varieties, six of which are Organic Fair Trade.
As a gift suggestion, "Louis" offers the Bodum Chocolatier and Valrhona Cocoa from France.
"Louis's" collection of postcards and photos from when he lived in France are decoupaged onto the table tops.
In addition to being a dealer for Bodum, "Louis" offers cups and mugs, teapots and a line of foods from France.
Café-Saint-Honoré is primarily an espresso shop, but also offers sandwiches, salads, desserts, ice cream from local favorite, Ici. The shop is open 6 a.m. to midnight, seven days a week and has free WiFi. What "Louis" would REALLY like to do is open a French-style boulangerie - thus the name: Saint-Honoré is the patron saint of bakers.
