A never-ending love affair with good coffee, good food and adventure finally led me to Rochester, MN. After many years in the corporate niche, I found myself with time on my hands and a long standing desire to open my own Café.
Going down the route of a bricks and mortar store proved difficult, with a lack of reasonable real estate in the neighborhoods surrounding Downtown. This led me to finding an alternative, and Le Petit Café ‘mobile’ was born.
With some TLC, and a lot of supervision with power tools, I hope to have my cart ready to go by summer 2017. We will be located predominantly at the downtown markets, but as new locations get added, I will update our Find Us page.
Located just north of town, Brian and I have a quaint hobby farm. Our eclectic brood consists of Geese, Ducks, Chickens, Goats (Dervla, Cáis, Skitterbug, Lou, Oscar, Dear, Diva, Beep & Bop), Woolly Pig (Albert Von B), Pot Belly Pig (Buster), Peacock, many many bees, and chief guard dog Toby the Dachshund.
We are blessed with Maple trees, Raspberry patches, growing orchards and perfect soil. We will highlight and champion as many of these resources as we can at Le Petit Café.
When I consider everything that can go wrong, and has, I wonder at the logic of proceeding. However with each day I get lists compiled and checked off, I feel calmer. No matter what happens it is guaranteed to be another adventure, and sure its all about the story!
I look forward to seeing you very soon,
Le Petit Café
