I thought it was time for another coffee shop update! Look the tree trunk is partly up! We are getting there..;..;; yes!
The shelves behind the bar are now ready to be filled with cups and glasses of different sizes; as well as teapots and different cannisters!! There is so much to buy and ........find!
Here's a quick shot of the "atelier" (that is workshop in French) because that's one of the special things about the café is that we will be animating different workshops, craft, art, music, foreign languages as well as mid-week workshops for the kiddos! Notice the piano?
These doors were painstakingly restored and "glassed" by my husband (who is an excellent handy-man by the way.)They used to be church doors and cost 8 euros for one!
Another attraction of our café will be a mini-library where people can come and read while drinking their coffee or even borrow a book! We cut out the back of one of the shelves to frame the little window of the work room where all those noisy machinery like blenders and juicers will be kept and used. We want people to enjoy a peaceful interlude to their day and not have the impression of being on a construction site every time someone orders a smoothie.
