Simply French Café

About Us

A French adventure
The spark of inspiration for the café began in Paris in 2008. Scottish-born Isobel (who has a lifelong passion for all things French) persuaded her Turkish husband and two teenage daughters to uproot from Vancouver and travel to France for 6 months. They took in Paris, Bordeaux, St. Tropez, Marseille and Nice, all while sampling the café life. The girls (with computers in tow) soon became accustomed to the relaxing café experience.

The opening of Simply French
After their French adventure, the family arrived back in Vancouver with a dream to bring a little bit of that café life home with them – and so they opened Simply French Café. Of course, Simply French is not meant to be taken literally; the café is designed to be whatever you want France to be. For us, France means savouring the moment and enjoying life. C’est la vie!
