whilst driving to work recently i noticed a new shop opened on albion rd.....well actually i noticed the white glossy xavier pauchard tolix armchairs sitting outside the new shop (yes i googled their full name...) on closer investigation i discovered a brand new little gem in albion. open just several weeks "ma belle amie coffee & curiosities" is seriously cute. serving private blend coffee + simple breakfast & lunch & opened mon-sat 7-5pm. when you visit you will notice the gorgeous mexican oil clothe feature wall - bright blue with colourful flowers - very cheery!
ma belle amie is owned by clarissa rayward.....I think clarissa is clever. whilst running her own family law firm next door clarissa has opened ma belle amie as an extention of her creative side... clarissa studied art/history before completing her law degree so what she is doing is kind of a natural progression!
alison (manager) & clarissa source unique aust designer pieces along with pretty french goodies - their range is fabulous esp @ this time of year!
ma belle amie is french for....my beautiful friend.
