Le Petit Cafe: New Roseburg establishment brings European flavor to downtown
ROSEBURG, Ore -- Efforts are being made to spruce up the downtown area of Roseburg, and a sister duos efforts are making a difference.
Connie Smith and her sister opened Le Petit Cafe in downtown Roseburg last week.
She says she hopes to give customers a European experience that isn't common in the area.
"We've been over to France and they have really good food, and we just wanted to bring some of that culture to Roseburg," she said.
From quiches to coffee, the cafe has it all, and Connie has high hopes that her business can help the city revitalize its downtown.
"I think they're doing a great job. They're working on it all the time, and I feel really comfortable here," she explained, "and yes, we want to do some outside seating."
But Connie says that could be well down the road. So instead, she's focusing on bringing out the best parts of French cuisine into her food.
"It's well made; they really put quality into their food. It just tastes like they put love into it."
And Connie wants her cafe to be part of the downtown area for years to come.
