Saturday Smiles: Open for Business!

Services for Real Estate Pros with Napa Consultants DRE00893924

We were delighted to see this Open for Business sign.  The Chocolat du CaliBressan was open again.  Jean Michel Carré and his wife Jill opened this little shop in Carpinteria. This is where the chocolates are made.


Jean Michel is a Chocolatier.  He is a chocolate expert and makes delectable treats.  He has the most creative truffle choices.  One of our favorites is the ginger lemon truffle.  You can check them out by clicking on the link above.



The name Cali Bressan combines Jill's origin/California and Jean Michel's from Bresse, France.We have always liked their slogan which is on their store front!


Wishing everyone an abundance of Saturday Smiles.

Good morning, Alexandra... always happy to see another business re-open these days. This is one I'd be frequenting all the time if I lived in your area. And now I'll be craving chocolate all day!

Oh my gosh, seduction of the eyes, sensation of the lips, tantalization of the tongue - I haven't had chocolate in years but if I were there, I just might have to taste some.

Good morning Alexandra. "Open" in Chicago has limited meaning, usually very limited. Many businesses have chosen to remain closed becouse of the new meaning of "open"! Enjoy your day.

I love seeing signs like that too!  I hope that the world will open back up sooner rather than later, things have been closed for way too long.

As government realizes they need to give up power, we will likely have many more smiles coming. I feel for those that got put out of business.

This is good information to share with area residents and visitors.

I would be looking for the dark chocolate selections.
