Bistro Le Cep is an ideal place to meet friends and enjoy companionship, fine wine and good food. Casual dress and European style hospitality combine to create an ambience that is warm and friendly.

Bistro cuisine knows no boundaries. The variety of dishes can change with every season and yet, all can be seriously be labeled "authentic bistro” dishes. Bistro Le Cep offer specialties from different regions of France in addition to crusty baguettes, pate’s, and a well-selected wine list from around the world.

The decor is warm and cozy, handcrafted pine wood shelves displaying selected wine bottles, large windows are draped in customary bistro style, and a well stocked bar was built by a French craftsman. French theme prints inspire a feeling of being on vacation in Europe and stagecoach lanterns create a dramatic mood in the evening.

 "Le Cep" is the trunk of the grapevine, which grows deep into the soil and provides nourishment and moisture to the grapes.
What could be a better or more appropriate name for a French Country Cooking and Wine Bar than...Bistro Le Cep.
Bistro Le Cep offers a generous earthy fare filling the air with wafts of garlic, smoked bacon in steel skillets, or the sweet caramel scent of a fresh tarte tatin about to be released from the oven.
You’ll find mouth-watering specialties from different regions of France in addition to crusty baguettes, pates, and a well-selected wine list featuring wines from around the world.
