The Bourgeois Pig Cafe was opened, from scratch, in May of 1993 by me, Forest Mason Green, at the ripe old age of 28. The cafe originally opened at 748 W. Fullerton Pkwy. and served only coffee & tea drinks, as well as fresh baked goods and desserts.
Sometime in 1995 I opened a second restaurant; a sandwich shop called The Scarlet Pumpernickel, which was located about 4 doors east of The Pig, at 738 W. Fullerton Pkwy. After realizing the shortcomings of operating two stores with very similar personalities, and twice the expenses, I decided to combine the two stores into one great place, The Bourgeois Pig Cafe! The Pig was immediately successful with its newly expanded menu of sandwiches & salads, and our much larger seating capacity on two levels, as well as our wonderful new front patio seating areas, both upper and lower.
Our sandwich menu has grown tremendously from our original 8 named sandwiches to now more than 25. Additionally, after an initial 2 salad choices, we have mushroomed to a selection of more than 11! We have also delved into baking our own muffins, cookies, scones, biscotti, shortbreads, rice crispy treats, brownies, dessert bars, granola, quiche, baked omelettes, and other delicious treats. We do bake daily, and there is no rhyme or reason as to what flavor of treats we will have on hand from day to day, or from hour to hour, so please feel free to call us for flavor updates!
