Bike Date: Candice & Carmen at La Lune Sucrée

19 Jan

They met 26 years ago country line dancing in a bar on St John Street. Carmen was in a relationship, Candice wasn’t looking. After 10 years of mutual friends nudging them: “You two would be good together” and changes in status, they got together. Now, 16 years later, they’ve tightened the knot with a legal ceremony.

From their home in Naglee Park, it’s just a short roll across San Jose State University to La Lune Sucrée for a taste of Europe on a weekend morning: coffee, crepes, quiche and the finest pastries. All baked fresh by chef-owner Bettina, who learned first from her German mother, then honed her skills in Paris and England.

Outdoor seating on the Paseo de San Antonio means easy bike parking and plenty of opportunity to run into friends from the neighborhood. It’s not hard to see why Candice and Carmen are regulars.

The venue: La Lune Sucrée at 116 Paseo de San Antonio, San José, California, USA

      Pam, you need to come to our next ride/event. Are you on the SVBC mailing list? That’s how you can stay in the loop on events.
