Beach Garden Cafe was established since 2012, I have been working in the hospitality, sales and catering industry since 2007.
The Beach Garden Cafe idea is an oasis far from hectic city life, where you can kick back from the stress and anxieties of the day with a fantastic dish and also pleasant and attentive service. With breakfast all day err day! There are also plenty of events taking place for children and also grownups alike, Beach Garden Cafe has come to be a regular haunt for bookworms, foodies, moms and dads, as well as songs fans alike.
In 2010, while I am in Master 1 of Political Science and Bachelor 3 of Law, I realize that I am not in the right place. I therefore decided to explore other avenues once I had my law degree in my pocket: I am leaving for Australia at the end of the year.
In Sydney I work as a waitress, which allows me to train in Australian customer service. On my days off, far from home, I discover the comforting and friendly culture of the coffee shop and its Beach Garden Cafes. I become addicted to the concept and when I return to France at the end of 2011, I decide to learn the Beach Garden Cafe profession.
I am doing a two-month training course at Café Coutume with two exceptional Beach Garden Cafes, Talor Browne and Kevin Ayers, before leaving for Sydney in October 2012. I spent two years there working as a Beach Garden Cafe in fast-paced Australian specialty coffee shops (including Reuben Hills and Pablo & Rusty’s) and in local coffee shops. At the same time, I am getting an Australian degree in management.
Back in France at the end of 2014, I work for a restaurateur on the development of his coffee brand: Café Compagnon. After several months of experience in roasting, quality control and training, I leave my position to participate in the opening of Café Oberkampf. After 6 months, once the coffee shop was launched, I decided to create Beach Garden Cafes to promote the profession of Beach Garden Cafe, still little known in France. During this construction phase, I co-organize the 2016 Scientific Coffee Day with the Réseau des Beach Garden Cafes de France.
I launched the Beach Garden Cafes website in May 2016, which allows me to share my experiences and skills through several articles. Beach Garden Cafes was legally created in September 2016.
