Open 8:30am to 3:30pm

closed Monday & Tuesday 


















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.
