Ciboulette means Chives



If you’re spent the last couple months groggily mourning the loss of lovely Barrington caffeine provider The Mudroom Cafe (1541 Barrington), cheer up: a new cafe, Ciboulette, opened its doors in the former Mudroom space this Monday. The cafe’s co-owned by Craig Flinn (the owner/chef of Chives Canadian Bistro, Ciboulette’s next-door neighbour) and Brady Muller, a former Chives apprentice. Heather Dickison, the cafe’s head chef, is another Chives veteran. “With everyone involved in this place having worked at Chives, we all feel the same philosophy about how food should be---it should be local and seasonal, and fresh,” points out Muller.

All the cafe’s soups, salads, sandwiches and baked goods will be prepared fresh daily in the Chives kitchen; specials will change with the seasons. And, they cater! Muller’s being mysterious about the goodies on Ciboulette’s menu, but expect “sticky pecan buns.” Also on the menu: a signature Ciboulette coffee blend, which has a noticeable “chocolate aroma,” and a “Mudroom” blend (dark and strong, just like at the Mudroom.) “We love the Mudroom, so there’s absolutely every reason in the world that we wanted to keep that” says Muller. Give Ciboulette a welcome at 423-JAVA.
