Northborough- The Board of Selectmen Feb. 8 cleared the way for a breakfast and lunch bistro to open in the long-vacant historic building at 30 Main St.
C’est La Vie Bistro is on track to open in early April, said owner Millie Milton.
Milton said the cafe will offer “French-inspired and globally inspired” foods in a casual atmosphere meant to become a regular stop for locals.
“Nothing too fancy or complicated,” Milton said, saying the cafe will offer pastries, sandwiches, crepes, waffles and other foods. She plans to open for breakfast and lunch during the week and offer brunch on Sundays.
“And really good coffee,” she added.
The building at 30 Main St. has sat vacant for several years. It was formerly the home of the Olive Branch Christian book store.
In other business, selectmen appointed two new members to the police department.
Based on the recommendation of Police Chief Mark Leahy, the board voted unanimously to hire Northborough resident Dan Murphy, who interned with the police department last year and completed a history of the force as a college senior; and Sean Montville of Charlton, who was formerly a member of the Assumption College campus police department.
