Smells of fresh-baked croissants, macarons and other tasty treats wafted out of Continental Bakery’s doors once again when it reopened August 24. Following close behind, its sister restaurant Chez Lulu is now officially welcoming patrons back to its quaint corner of the street in English Village.

How is it possible we’ve gone half a year without sitting under Chez Fonfon’s patio paradise? The wait is finally fini—the team announced via Instagram that they’re opening the patio and several sidewalk tables Tuesday, 9/29 with safety precautions.
