A collective groan of “Mon Dieu” has been heard round the county as French cafe, Chloe’s, has shuttered. The decade-old restaurant housed in a medical building on Airway Drive in Santa Rosa, served up some of the best Gallic treats in the county, from authentic boeuf bourguignon and jambon sandwiches to Alain Pisan’s unrivaled French pastries, using family recipes handed down through generations.

The October wildfires did significant damage to the cafe, including burning the owners’ precious catering truck, Chloe, which was imported from France and a family heirloom. The fires also ripped through neighboring areas including the Applebees and K Mart just blocks away.

The owners will continue to pursue their catering business out of their Windsor kitchen.

“We have thrived over the past 10 years due to your loyalty and support, and you have been such wonderful clientele,” said the goodbye note on the Chloe’s website.
