Bienville life…

Cafe BienvilleI will be at Cafe Bienville starting this Tuesday and I can’t wait. Anytime I mention “Cafe Bienville” I hear good things back.

Everyone seems to have a story about how wonderful the owners, Matt and Melissa French, are. I have heard them described as “salt of the earth,” “wonderful people” and “pillars of the community.”

Cafe Bienville itself has a vibrant, positive energy that inspires. You don’t visit Cafe Bienville—you are drawn into it like a nurturing embrace. It’s a place that celebrates who you are as an individual. It’s the kind of place that makes the world brighter with the light it exudes.

How appropriate that a cafe like this would sit in the heart of a town called Niceville. It’s the community seat; a place for chatting, playing games and sharing a delicious meal. I consider it a privilege to call it my new work home starting Tuesday.

Come have lunch and say hello :)
