The new bakery will offer croissants, Danishes and other pastries. The kitchen’s menu is being designed by chef Eloise Garcia, Jouault’s wife, who will come up with traditional French bistro staples, created from a rich array of meats, produce and other ingredients mainly sourced from the Carolinas.

For breakfast, diners can expect dishes such as omelets, French toast (created from loaves of brioche bread, baked on-site) and eggs Benedict, served on a warm croissant instead of the traditional English muffin. For lunch, customers can enjoy bistro staples, such as steak frites, steamed mussels and several different French salads.
Being a native of Spain, Garcia’s menu will also contain some tastes of the Iberian Peninsula, Jouault said.
“Don’t be surprised to find some tapas on the menu in the afternoon,” he said.
While they want to deliver high-quality French cuisine, Jouault and Dhers said they envision Cafe La Gaule as a bistro where customers can come as they are and enjoy a good meal in a casual atmosphere at a reasonable price.
“We want this to be a place where people can come to get some brunch or lunch, buy a cake or something for someone’s birthday, and hang out,” Dhers said.
Cafe La Gaule is located at 10 N. Trade St., Tryon. Those interested in learning more may call 786-488-4729 or visit facebook.com/cafelagaule.
