Wednesday, 10:30 p.m.: a technician succeeds in repairing the dishwasher. After a long day of plunging hands in hot, soapy water to clean the utensils and pots that were used for D-Day, it's great news to have a dishwasher again
It's now 11:00 p.m.. Before leaving the café, the final preparations are made. The team takes stock of a busy day and laughs together-out of fatigue and sheer joy. Everyone will be able to get a few hours of shut-eye before returning to the kitchen. Weylan, our new Presse Café franchisee, his cousins, a few employees, and Presse Café's support team say "Goodnight!" and "See you tomorrow!"
At dawn on Thursday, everybody is smiling.
It's the big day! In just a few minutes, Weylan and his team will be welcoming their very first clients. Coffee is brewing, the croissants and muffins are baking in the ovens, and the counters are filled with breakfast delights.
It's 7 a.m.: the doors can now open! Odors of baked goods and fresh coffee are wafting outside, enticing clients to stop by. Clients lined up all day to try out our new Presse Café. Several new patrons expressed their delight at seeing us set up shop in the neighborhood.
We would like to thank everyone for their warm welcome! We're looking forward to baking, cooking, and brewing for you for many years to come! Whether we'll prepare your favorite mid-afternoon drink or early morning cup of joe, we'll always do it with a smile!
