Happy 19th Birthday, Le Pichet!

On August 3, 2000, Le Pichet opened its doors and started serving our neighbors for the first time. We have all gotten a lot older since this photo was taken, but just like then, we are here everyday, brewing the morning coffee, taking hot croissants out of the oven, opening a bottle of wine and cooking up something good to eat. Hope you have enjoyed it as much as we have!

Thanks to all our friends and neighbors for 19 great years! See you here soon.

Domaine de la Graveirette “Ju de Vie” rosé 2018

New to the wine list at Café Presse and Le Pichet! The “Ju de Vie” rosé from Domaine de la Gravereirette is ideal for summer quaffing or as a match for summer dishes.

Le Domaine de la Gravereirette is located in the heart of Provence, along the sunny southern reaches of the Rhone river, between Avignon and Arles. Winemaker and owner Julien Mus works his 20 hectare property using organic and bio-dynamic methods and is Demeter certified since 2015. His 2018 rosé is made with a blend of Grenache and Syrah grapes, for a wine that is both summer refreshing and mouth filling enough to pair with tomatoes, chicken, pork or oily fishes (sardines, mackerel or salt cod, anyone!).

The summer is short, try it while you can, including during Happy Hour, when all our bottles are available to enjoy here at Take-Out prices!

Cafe Presse Happy Hour from 4pm to 6pm everyday

Le Pichet Happy Hour from 3pm to 5pm Monday to Thursday
