New shopping in Walnut Hills – Le Bon Vivant – Fine French Things. I just stopped in today with a mission – celebrating Christmas on Sunday with two friends, and had no presents yet. I had been meaning to go in – everyone at Cafe Moca had been telling me how great the shop is.
So, today, I stopped in and wandered about. And what a treat! Catherine, the owner, and her assistant, the West Highland terrier Winston, allowed me to look at everything and ask all the questions I wanted.
There is a wonderful selection of fine French groceries, with a bit of Italian as well. Wonderful olive oils, jams, chocolate, pastas, sugar. It’s perfectly okay to swoon over them. Then there are body products, table linens, dishes.
The grandsons are getting genuine Swiss army knives from their grandmother – made of Swiss chocolate!
You definitely need to stop in – it’s at the corner of Woodburn and Myrtle, cattycorner from the Walnut Hills Christmas tree, and just a block off Madison on Woodburn.
