La Vie En Rose Cafe
Meet Kirby Jones, the owner of La Vie En Rose! Kirby, a former vendor with the markets’ Green Plate Special, is excited to join the Crescent City Farmers Market as a full-time vendor at the Sunday City Park Market serving up Creole coffee cold brew blends, seasonal cakes, and pastries. What started out as a bike cafe popup at Martin’s Wine Cellar has bloomed into a flourishing business for the mother of two. With deep roots in New Orleans Creole culture dating back to the 1800s, Kirby first fell in love with coffee when her grandmother, who lived across the street from the sugarcane fields in Lutcher, LA, handed her a cup of coffee and bunny bread to dip in it. Be sure to stop by La Vie En Rose’s table and check out their cold brew and one-of-a-kind cakes and pastries!
