Cécile Cuvelier took over this restaurant-tea room, located rue de l’Ange, on August 17th.
Pancakes, pancakes, good desserts, accompanied by cider or tea, this is what you need to spend a good taste and pleasant moment, at the crêperie Suzette et Thé Ô. In the rue de l’Ange in Mende, Cécile Cuvelier has reignited the sign of the creperie to the delight of gourmets.
Cécile spent her youth in Issy-les-Moulineaux (Hauts-de-Seine), before arriving in Pied-de-Borne where her parents took over the village hotel-restaurant. She then worked in the family business and then at a pastry chef and chocolatier in Villefort. Then, for five years, she reoriented herself, by studying and trying out other jobs, in sales or at a dentist’s in Mende.
“I met Aurélie, the former owner of the crêperie, who encouraged me to take over this business. The project matured and I opened on August 17. Erell Boucardey, my neighbor, who had worked with Aurélie , was kind enough to accompany me on this adventure. His passion is baking. We get on well”says Cécile.
“The principle is a creperie and tea room, but with local products or from neighboring departments. I prospect for nearby and artisanal producers who provide us with fruit juices, jams and everything that we put in the pancakes. organic flour comes from the Moulin de la Borie, the meat comes from Nico, the butcher, rue du Soubeyran, and the vegetables from Ludo, Primeur du Soubeyran. The cider is Breton, but artisanal and organic. For the winter, we let’s make soups. The pastries are homemade. All our cooking is done by us, and homemade. For the tea room part, we have a fairly extensive drinks menu. Syrups, fruit juices, lemonades, colas are We have a wide range of teas from Aveyron.”
A happy restaurant owner
For winter, Cécile is offering a new menu with hot cider, a Lozère galette with goat cheese and honey, a local galette with sausage and tome aligot, with three cheeses, Roquefort, goat cheese, Emmental, sweet pancakes with blueberry, quince, cherry jams or Malakoff spread, and many other gourmet pleasures. The pastries are entirely made by Erell. There is also a boutique section, with Occitanie chocolates, honeys, jams, chocolates and teas.
In summer, customers can enjoy pancakes in a very pleasant paved courtyard. Cécile is happy to be in this place steeped in history. “This place is magical! I couldn’t do anything other than local in this house. We hope that customers are happy and satisfied. Our motto is to make quality with good products, with a smile and to do pleasure to people.” A gourmet moment to share with family or friends at Suzette et Thé Ô.
