HALIFAX — Café Lunette, a Parisian-inspired all-day eatery, has opened in Halifax’s Queen’s Marque district.
Executed by chef de cuisine Vanessa Belanger, the menu features French classics, such as traditional onion soup, steak tartare, boeuf Bourguignon and seafood bouillabaisse. Its viennoiserie program by executive pastry chef Cori Osborne offers a variety of baked goods, including croissants, financiers, cannelés, madeleines and macarons. Bill Osborne, Cori’s husband, is the district executive chef. Lastly, the bar offers a curated selection of classic cocktails, a mix of Old World wines and a few biodynamic bottles.
Designed by Solid Design Creative, Café Lunette’s 70-seat dining room has tiled flooring and a mix of bright colours and soft pastels. This spring, the café will open a 35-seat Parisian-inspired front patio.
