Classes— limited to up to eight students—last up to two and half hours and are held weekdays at 6:30 p.m. and Sundays at 1:30 p.m. and 4 p.m. Guests should arrive 10-15 minutes prior to class and should also bring a pen and paper for note taking. Outside food or beverages are not allowed in class. During class sessions, students are also treated to a 10-15 minute break to enjoy Simply French Cafe's french macarons with a glass of champagne, orange juice, or iced-tea. Sessions start September 9. Sessions are not held on Saturdays.
Simply French Cafe will be closed from August 27- September 9, 2013.
Simply French Cafe
For six months, Isobel Drummond and her husband sojourned across France with their two teenage daughters, seeking out the country’s best cafés. The couple lingered over coffee and macarons in Paris, Bordeaux, St. Tropez, Marseille, and Nice. Now, at Simply French Cafe, they strive to capture the welcoming ambiance and gourmet foods they enjoyed in their favourite French eateries.
Simply French’s crystal chandeliers and Toulouse-Lautrec posters pop against dark wooden floors and exposed ceiling beams. Customers linger over paninis, tiramisu, and French-style pastries served on delicate pastel china. And in the evenings, a hands-on macaron-making class lets students create their own confections without the difficulty of growing meringues from seed.
Tips from Groupon Customers
“Bring a friend to class with you. :)”
“Me and my friend were expecting the classes to be more hands on instead of just watching the lady do all of the work. However, the macarons were done very well. :)”
“It was an excellent experience and I will definitely be going back to enjoy all that the Cafe has to offer”
