This place is fabulous, the assortment of crepes on the menu is not only delightful but delicious. The menu is full of both breakfast and sweet crepes. The pastries are light and fluffy, and the coffee is actual french press and full of flavor. Thanks...More

My kids and I stayed in Depot Bay at a lovely Air BnB 2nd floor condo. How lucky are we that this delicious French Cafe was right beneath us on the first floor. I don't know what was better, the Cappuccino or the Croque Madam....More

Outstanding great crepes. Savory or sweet. Not a run of the mill steak and eggs. No Ocean view but great decor.

They have great coffee and tea. Crepes are great. It is small and can crowd on weekends. We love it.

Adorable and quaint cafe right off the 101. Great mocha coffee and reasonably priced breakfast selections. The Croque Madam was good but I would personally serve it on a Criossant. "Croque Croissant"? The Bay Shrimp Croissant was perfect! Cute atmosphere setting en Francais. The menu...More

Description
The idea for this cafe has been resting in our minds for years, since the first time I unlocked the door to the French restaurant I was managing in California, to the moment I cooked with my new love and his mommy, not snails and Vouvray but Pinot and Pork!...I knew one day we would create a place to share our love of yummy things with the world! We all envisioned a cafe that would offer an escape from the ordinary and a window into the world of the extraordinary! With the guidance and support of our families and friends we are pleased to introduce the French inspired Cafe C'est La Vie to our coastal community. So please visit us soon and walk away with a smile on your face and a sweet crepe in hand!
