I came from France to settle in Bloomington with a dream...
opening a French Café!


Meet Stephanie.

“When you push open the door of La Vie en Rose Café, I would like you to feel as if you were in France for a moment. A Parisian bistro atmosphere, a cozy ambiance in a special decor and most importantly, simple but good food!

I specialize in authentic French dishes, simple things that I would prepare in my home daily for myself or for my friends: pastries, quiches, soups, salads, cakes, yogurts... all made from scratch every morning, for you in our brand new professional kitchen.

To accompany these treats, we serve quality cold drinks from France. We serve hot beverages such as our strong coffee specialties elaborated with care by Sunergos Coffee, a local micro roastery. We also carry a variety of luxurious loose leaf teas carried by the internationally renowned French brand Dammann Frères. Try our scrumptious hot chocolate, made with Belgian pure cocoa powder. Mmm!

All of our selections are offered in a genuine French style and my wish is when you come to La Vie en Rose, you do see life through rose-tinted glasses!”
