A Little History

Founded in 2007, Café Monte French Bakery and Bistro was created to be your “Escape from the Everyday.”  Our goal… to create a casual-gourmet restaurant for the neighborhood, while utilizing only the freshest ingredients and French culinary traditions to deliver an exceptional experience to our guests.  Since then we have become a favorite for visitors from near and far.

 

Our Staff

Service is our mission.  From the ”heart of the restaurant” our dedicated kitchen staff works with the highest quality ingredients to deliver an exceptional value and culinary experience.  Our staff in the front of the restaurant is charged with delivering that product in a warm and hospitable setting which produces a dining experience like none other.  The ambiance, and the setting provide the perfect background for us to treat you like family.

Monte

Classical training and world travel inspired the casual gourmet concept that we have today.  Having lived and worked for years in Latin America, in Places like Bolivia, Peru and Mexico, and having had a chance to visit France, China and other places in-between at an early age, my passion for international cooking and natural ingredients was developed over time.  Our goal is to be a neighborhood home away from home, wherever you come from.

At Café Monte – French Bakery and Bistro, your experience will be world class. Enjoy our quick counter service or full-service approach. Fresh food, “from-farm-to-table” specialties, served with French provincial style. Enjoy the quality, service and atmosphere found at

Café Monte – French Bakery and Bistro
