Owners Agnes and Quentin Garrigou expressed excitement and gratitude for winning Boulder County Gold this year. Quentin gives big thanks to the Boulder community for all the support. “We were not expecting it, we are super happy, especially during this time because it’s pretty hard for everyone.” Instead of going for the fancy French cuisine vibe, Quentin said they’re more about a family-friendly vibe that dishes up simple foods with fresh ingredients. “Customers appreciate the prices and that it’s a family restaurant.” At Le French Café, staff take pride in treating everyone like they are family. Want a top selling lunch item? Lyonnaise is the one. The large salad of mixed greens is topped with grilled onion, bacon, tomato, potatoes and a poached egg. Save room for dessert – if you have a weakness for French pastries. 2525 Arapahoe Ave., C-1, Boulder, 303.284.2265, lefrencafeboulder.com.
