We are real country people. At 10, we were driving tractors
rs Say with a smile, Mathilde Défossez and Claire Sardanal, co-managers of Fresh Bol, a new restaurant in Cambrai. The two childhood friends, from farming families, decided to create everything from A to Z: ” Onot

are the daughters of chief operators, we already had the entrepreneurial spirit. We wanted to make pokebowls, because it’s fresh and easy to do “, explains Claire Sardanal. ” We appropriated the dish by the name: Fresh for the cost and bowl and no bowl to put it in the French way, to enhance the territory adds Mathilde Défossez.

Promote the short circuit

The majority of products come from local farmers, ” the carrots come from Cambrai, the farm yoghurt from Walincourt, the coffee comes from the Masnières roaster… Even the bubble tea balls are French. We try to have as many products as possible from local producers and if this is not possible, we take French products as a priority. “, explains Mathilde Défossez. A wall of producers will be created to highlight them.

You will find a variety of fresh ingredients, which come from local producers.
