closed Tuesdays & Wednesdays
As a long time lover of French food, student of history and a
dedicated traveler, I had a need to share my experiences and
create my own little piece of the pie! A strong characteristic of
a culture is defined by what is on the table and so I had little
trouble connecting my two passions!
We designed the interior of our space with the charming
pâtisseries of Paris in mind and it evolved from there! The
Bella Beach community where we've made our home, offers a
quaint cozy corner that was just perfect! Surrounded by forest
and a few blocks from the beach, this was the exact
atmosphere we needed to bring our vision to life.
We also promote the arts by using our wall space as an "open"
gallery for local talent to be displayed in addition to offering a
variety of classic literature for leisurely reading. It's common
to bump into one or more of our artists who frequent
the café, so stop by for a treat and stay for some great
The C'est La Vie Story
The café is owned by local coastal couple Penelope Cole and
Tony Perez. Lisa Morrigan, Tony's mother, is a supporting
element who brings love and warmth whenever she can
and Penelope's youngest brother, Thomas is the mastermind
behind the graphics and promotional material. Tony is in and
around as much as time allows for he also runs a full time
landscaping company, Northwest Home and Lawn ( and may
have a slight surfing addiction!) but he's a huge help with
heavy items! It's definitely a team effort at the café!
Inspired by indulgence and balanced with Oregon's bounty,
we strive to make classic European faire with a personal
touch! We proudly use products from our local farms, stores
and purveyors including Barking Dog Farm,
Foods in Season, Provvista Specialty Foods, Nicky USA,
Oregon Cracker Company, Briar Rose Creamery, Oceana co-
op of Newport, Trillium Natural Foods and many others
insuring our menu offers diversity and quality.
