Friends of La Copine,

As I'm sure you're aware the restaurant is temporarily closed due to Covid-19. At this time we do not have a reopening date. We would like to fill you in since so many of you are asking when the restaurant will reopen. From September 11th, 2015 until March 15th, 2020, we have been a (42 seat / 8 table) dine-in only restaurant. That is what we set La Copine up to be, a destination dine-in restaurant. The patio was used as our waiting area with the occasional non-windy days when diners could enjoy their meals with a dog. We very rarely took on additional catering because of the high demand for dine-in restaurants in this busy tourist town.


The shock of Covid has hit us all in so many different ways. We tried takeaway with the PPP loan, and had fun while doing it, but it could not sustain the business. To be honest, it would sink us. Please know that we are doing everything to survive this pandemic. We are working to build a wind & sun proof outdoor space, but it will take some time. So please have patience with us as we are an independent restaurant with zero outside investment. In the meantime, we are offering catering for private events. This is something we can do until it is safe to have you back at La Copine. 


Don't hesitate to email with a serious catering inquiry. More information can be found on the catering page. We have some exciting ideas for the future! So stay tuned, and stay safe. Missing you all so very much, especially our regulars.


Love to all,

Claire & Nikki
