Newsletter – September 2015

Hello Everyone,

Hope you are all well and have had good summer holidays?  We have seen so many of you back again here in Vouvant, it has been lovely to catch up on your news and have a quick chat with you. And my goodness it was just a quick chat in many cases as we were very busy this year – we’ve had a wonderful summer season and are looking forward to a good autumn too.  We will be taking a break before we move into the autumn/winter season, visiting our family back in England and then off to the sunshine (we hope) for a well deserved rest.  So some dates for your diary for September:

On Wednesday 2nd September we will have Cindy (PaperBack Jan) here with her English books from 2.30pm until 4.30pm. Pop along and have a look at her fabulous selection of reading matter and whilst you’re browsing have a coffee, tea or glass of wine or beer, accompanied by a slice of cake or perhaps a cream scone.  We look forward to seeing you.

In September we will re-install our Cafe Quiz Night – it will be held on Saturday 19th September from 7.30pm.  Tables of four are invited to confirm your reservations with Paul please – tables are reserved on a “first come – first served” basis so get your reservation in early to avoid disappointment.  The two course meal will be home-made lasagne served with crusty garlic bread and a dessert.  The price, which includes your two course meal and the quiz participation with super prizes for at least three teams, is Euro12,50 per person.

As we approach autumn and winter we will be changing our opening times and as from 1st September we will be closed on a Monday and Tuesday and open from 11.00am until 6.00pm for the rest of the week, except on Friday when we are open until around 10.00pm and offer our special “Friday Night Menu”.  We will also be closed during the following times during September and October for our end of summer break:
Closed Saturday 5th September – re-open Wednesday 9th September
Closed Friday 25th September – re-open Wednesday 14th October

During our break we will be considering our winter menu and if anyone has any ideas or suggestions we would be pleased to hear from you. Our new menu for the winter season will commence when we return in October.

OK folks that’s all for now, we look forward to seeing you in the cafe soon!

Kind regards

Newsletter – August 2015 – Cafe Cour du Miracle

Dear All,

Welcome to summer!  We are now into our summer opening hours as we are in August, so we are open for six days a week, closed on Tuesday only.

There really is only one big event in August in Vouvant – the “Fête Franco-Britainique” on the 9th, that’s this Sunday, and there is so much going on it should be a really great day.  The cafe will be open as usual from 11.00am and we will of course be showing off our British side! We will have a stall in the car park under the trees where you can get a cream scone, muffin or a piece of very British Victoria Sandwich. The café will be providing a British style lunch of Pie, Chips and Salad, and of course beers, wines, coffees and teas, as well as soft drinks and ice creams.

There will be traditional British and French games for the children, Morris dancing provided by a troupe of Lady Morris dancers, live music throughout the day, a fish and chip lunch from the Vendée Chippy and of course a French style evening meal (reservations required please).

There will be exhibits of crafts, artwork, and all sorts of things to look at and buy on the stalls around the Place du Bail under the tower. The day starts off at 11.00am and goes on until we all drop at the end of the day around 7.00pm or so.

We look forward to seeing you there!

Can we remind you of our Friday night special – it is the only evening we open and provide a three course meal (with choices for each course) at a very reasonable 18,00 euros for three courses or 15,00 euros for two. As these evenings are becoming quite popular we would recommend that you book, especially in August.

Look forward to seeing you in the café soon,
Kind regards
