Michael and Kathryn Graham have launched the new café section of their popular C’est Cheese store at 825 Santa Barbara Street which opened in 2003. Michael Graham tells me that they will be taking all the raw ingredients at their store and start cooking with them in the new café. The cheeses, meats and olive oils from the store will be used for sandwiches in the café while their new cafe will be making jams, spreads and sauces that will be available in the cheese shop.
C’est Cheese will be making their own pastries in-house from scratch in addition to mayonnaise, pickles and patés. Local, seasonal salads will be available from ingredients bought at the Farmers Market. Coffee will be provided by popular local java joint French Press. C’est Cheese also has opened a second patio on the north side of the building offering afternoon sun and a great view of the Riviera.
Even though the new cafe is open, construction continues. They will be temporarily moving the store into the cafe area so C’est Cheese can remodel their existing space.
C’est Cheese is open for breakfast at 7 a.m., lunch will be available until 3 p.m. and pastries/coffee will be available until 6 p.m. Thanks to readers Jonathan and Primetime for the tips!
