In Robien, the briochin Bojangles café-bookstore opens its doors on February 15 – Saint-Brieuc



The sign is freshly put up, the window needs to be filled and, inside, stacked books are still waiting to find their place on the shelves. At D-7 of the opening, the pressure mounts at the new café-bookstore Bojangles, located rue Jules-Ferry, in Saint-Brieuc. Christelle Tocqué and her daughter, Aurélie Cave, partners in this adventure professional, are engaged in the final sprint.

“We are fully, fully! smiles Christelle Tocqué, torn between the excitement of welcoming future customers, the “good” stress of being ready on time and a bit of fatigue too. It must be said that since September 2021, the duo has spared no effort to transform the place. From floor to ceiling, the 124 m2 have undergone a complete metamorphosis.

Two spaces for two atmospheres

Colors, yellow on one side and blue-green on the other, delimit two spaces with distinct atmospheres. One for the bookstore, the other for the café and the space that will host exhibitions by local artists. The wooden furniture, part of which is recycled, and the decor offer a warm atmosphere. “That’s what we wanted, to create a cozy atmosphere,” emphasizes Christelle Tocqué.

On the book side, customers will find a bit of everything. “We wanted to focus on a few departments, such as children’s literature, graphic novels and books devoted to Do it yourself”.

After five months of work, Christelle Tocqué and Rosalie Cave, mother and daughter, have completely transformed the premises on rue Jules-Ferry, where they will welcome their first customers on February 15.

Open on Sunday

Bojangles will be open between noon and two, as well as on Sunday afternoons. “We say to ourselves that it can attract people, both to buy a book and to have a drink”. Not to mention the immediate proximity to the train station. Christelle Tocqué also wishes to organize literary meetings and manual work workshops. “To begin, we are already going to get our bearings”, smiles the one who is starting a new professional life, after more than 25 years as an after-sales assistant at Volvo Truck. The page is turned and already, “every day is a joy”.

Convenient

Bojangles café-bookstore, 8, rue Jules-Ferry. Open Tuesday to Saturday, 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., Sunday, 2 p.m. to 6 p.m.
