FRENCH RIVER BRIDGE CLOSURE

Beginning on June 1st, 2020 the North Shore Scenic Drive bridge at the French River will be CLOSED to be torn down and rebuilt. This closure will cut off the primary route used to access the New Scenic Cafe from the south.


During this closure, the ONLY access to the Cafe will be via Homestead Road from the north. If you are unfamiliar with this route, please reference one of the Google Maps links below.


We do not know when this project will be completed. If you are placing an order from ‘Mise en Place Marketplace’ for pickup, please plan accordingly. While not dramatic, it does add about 4 miles (one way) to the trip.
