Café Des Sports opens at Les Quennevais

On Thursday 5th July 2012, Les Quennevais Sports Centre's café will re-open as CAFÉ DES SPORTS. The café will have a new look together with a new menu, designed to compliment the healthy lifestyle choices enjoyed by Active people.

New proprietors Paul and Rachel Mauger will be familiar to many centre users; Paul was previously one of the Duty Managers at Les Quennevais Sports Centre for 16 years, and together with their young family, they have enjoyed considerable time at the centre. Both are keen sports people - Rachel with marathon experience, and Ironman aspirations - Paul heavily in to Road cycle racing, with the 2012 Haute Route 7 day alpine sportive event in August.

Paul and Rachel are looking forward to their new venture and felt that the café and its menu were ready for a new look.  They have created a new menu filled with traditional favourites and new healthy options.  These include - freshly squeezed juices and smoothies, together with a salad bar, quality coffee and teas, light seasonal meals and a good range of homemade cakes, not to mention healthy morning take - out options for early gym and swim users, rushing off to work!

Of course the old favorites, such as burgers and fries will still be available.

Adopting the "use local" motto, Paul and Rachel indicate the emphasis will be on using fresh, quality ingredients, locally sourced from independent suppliers - where practical.

Paul and Rachel have a young family, and understand that parents often want healthy, good quality food options for their children, and look forward to presenting parents with a new children's menu.  This will include freshly made pasta dishes as well as a grazing platter to tempt little appetites. Their own children have proved to have limitless energy levels on a diet of healthy, home cooked meals. 

They will also introduce a modest play area for younger children, to allow parents a little bit of quiet time, to catch their breath and revitalize, while enjoying a soothing drink in the new soft seating area.

Paul, Rachel and staff look forward to welcoming both existing and new clients.
