Bear Lane Bistro takes over Blue Jar in Barriere

There is a new bistro in Barriere.

The Bear Lane Bistro opened it’s doors in the early morning of Feb. 25, at the site of what used to be known as the Blue Jar Coffee Bar & Bistro.

The new proprietors, Tammy Paul and Tom Pennington, who are already business owners in the community, say they are excited to be taking over the Bistro, and that their Designer Liquidation clothing store in Barriere will soon be moving into the restaurant building as well.

New hours for the Bistro will be 7.a.m.to 4 p.m., and eventually Friday and Saturday evenings as well. Paul says their cook is Lori Sheldrick, and they have also applied for a liquor license.

“We’ll be slowly switching up the menu,” said Paul, “And we especially want to offer homemade baking, and will continue to host private gatherings and events.”

Paul says the Bistro is no stranger to her, “I worked here for two years when it first opened,” she said, “Having my own restaurant has always been my dream, and Tom has always wanted a clothing store.”

The Designer Liquidation store will be moved over to the bistro this week.

Bear Lane Bistro will be providing the enjoyment of a good meal or special coffee with friends, while at the same time welcoming customers to browse the Designer clothing and accessories racks.
