The idea of the restaurant was conceived over the course of travels around the US and other parts of the world. It was originally planned on being a project started in retirement, but was started earlier when fate intervened. The cafe opened its doors in February, 2022.
After travel in Spain and Portugal, Linda and Beau wanted to create a local place to enjoy some of the dishes discovered there. Charcuterie and cheese boards were one of the early specialties. To these have been added a variety of other favorites discovered by Warren and our dedicated staff.
Linda and Beau James, and son Warren LaForest, started 201 Cafe and Wine Bar as a place to share their passions of wine, live music, and interesting food with their neighbors and friends.
They hope to create a warm, inviting, and unique home-grown atmosphere in which to share these simple pleasures.
