Arrived late in the day. Not much product left to choose from. Limited menu but we were too late. Will give it another chance some day. The atmosphere is very relaxed, coffee shop vibe. Would be a fun place for a larger group to meet.

Ok... keep going here ....hoping - they’ll close the door to the kitchen (otherwise you get an entire dining experience in the kitchen -it’s REALLY LOUD - imagine eating right next to a commercial dishwasher with someone angrily slamming dishes into it repeatedly). The food...More

The idea for this cafe has been resting in our minds for years, since the first time I unlocked the door to the French restaurant I was managing in California, to the moment I cooked with my new love and his mommy, not snails and Vouvray but Pinot and Pork!...I knew one day we would create a place to share our love of yummy things with the world! We all envisioned a cafe that would offer an escape from the ordinary and a window into the world of the extraordinary! With the guidance and support of our families and friends we are pleased to introduce the French inspired Cafe C'est La Vie to our coastal community. So please visit us soon and walk away with a smile on your face and a sweet crepe in hand!
