The Larder & Pantry, the café, coffee, baking and catering arm of Ciboulette et Cie, has taken over Café Roxy inside the Midland Cultural Centre.
The café will offer the same menu as the 4 Robert St. W. location in Penetanguishene.
“It will be quick serve,” said Sanche. “If you want a quick grab and go in downtown Midland this is the place to come.”
While the move wasn’t planned, owner André Sanche jumped at the chance to take over the empty kitchen and streamline his entire operation when the space became available.

“We were running our Penetanguishene location and our Honey Harbour location out of our current kitchen at 290 King St. (Ciboulette et Cie), but we were running into problems with too much staff in too little space,” said Sanche.
Five full-time staff members are moving over to work out of the spacious state-of-the-art Café Roxy kitchen and will be providing pastries, baked goods and food for the other locations.
“Everything will be made (at Café Roxy) with some kept here and the rest delivered to Honey Harbour, Penetanguishene and the store at the back of Ciboulette et Cie.”
The new Café Roxy is expected to be fully operational by the first week of August.
