I've never been to Paris nor any part of France, but the minute I stepped in to this comfortable and rustic bistro, I thought this surely is what it must feel like. Art covered Brick walls, Nina Simone singing in the background, bistro tables inside and out or a window counter to sit and watch the passers by. La Vie en Rose!
It's the kind of place you can sit and read incognito, be online (they have wifi) , have coffee with a friend or not. The kind of place you can sit alone and watch the world go by while sipping tea and, of course, nibble on one of their luscious pastries. From the simple to the extravagant, cookies to tortes to breads to wedding cakes, all freshly made from scratch. In fact today is Friday and they serve a couple of their specialty breads on Friday, Ryan's Loaf and Multi-grain. Perfect with a bowl of soup, except today they ran out of their Split Pea Soup. Ces't La Vie!!! but their menu includes several quiches, fresh salads from green to pasta or fresh vegetable salads and the fun part, their menu changes daily. Hmmm, decisions, decisions, well as the saying goes, life is unpredictable so eat dessert first. and I did. Gateau au Chocolat, a rich layered, 4 layers to be exact of chocolate cake layered with and covered with chocolate ganache! all I can say is mmmmmmmm. Mouthwatering scrumptious! and all those anti-oxidants did my body good!
La Vie en Rose is in downtown Bellingham on Holly st. A wonderful and relaxing place to stop and unwind after window shopping or a great way to start the day. Bon Appetit!
