Since opening, Moulin Laguna Beach has received a continuous warm welcome from the locals and community. Now, with the start of summer, the award-winning bistro-epicerie-cafe introduces an array of seasonal offerings exclusive to its seaside Laguna Beach location.
Laurent Vrignaud, who created Moulin out of his love for the Parisian cafe culture he’s missed since moving to California, is introducing new seasonal menu items, reminiscent of his childhood summers in Paris. Exclusive to Moulin’s Laguna Beach location will be a selection of hand-crafted ice cream desserts, elegantly served in a traditional coupe glaceé; a house-made Parisian hot dog; and fresh upgrades to the cafe’s made-to-order crepe and waffle station.
The following Coupe Glacée classiques will be available beginning May 8, 2017:
Banana Split - fresh banana, split lengthwise with vanilla, strawberry, and chocolate ice cream, and topped with whipped cream, chocolate coulis and almond tuiles
Poire Belle Helene - poached pear with vanilla ice cream, topped with chocolate sauce, whipped cream & almond tuiles
Dame Blanche - vanilla ice cream topped with whipped cream, chocolate sauce & roasted sliced almonds
Cafe Liegeois - coffee ice cream topped with whipped cream, coffee coulis, almond tuiles, & chocolate confectionery
Boules de Glaces - your choice of three scoops: vanilla, coffee, chocolate, strawberry, or exotic sorbet
In addition to the classic coupes glacées, Moulin has also expanded its Laguna Beach offerings to include a Parisian hot dog with house-made Toulouse sausage and Dijon mustard tucked into a warm, fresh-baked baguette. Moulin’s made-to-order crepe and waffle station will also see a seasonal update; a rotating selection of fresh summer fruits will be offered as an additional topping. Unlike the coupes glacées, the Parisian hot dog, crepes, and waffles will be available to-go. Guests can enjoy them with a glass of rosé on Moulin’s umbrella-covered patio or stroll through the streets of Laguna, just as they do in the coastal villages of France.
Moulin sits at the heart of Laguna Beach’s popular Forest Avenue (248 Forest Ave, Laguna Beach, CA 92651) and is open daily from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. For more information, please visit: www.moulinbistro.com.
