Café Laurent located in Burnstown on Calabogie road is a beautiful place where you can make a little stopover to taste good premium ice cream as well as enjoy a good cup of coffee accompanied by a small bakery. All this while enjoying the beautiful scenery of the area.
A Burnstown businessman is giving back to the place he now calls home. Originally from Africa, Laurent Coulibaly has fulfilled a commitment to the Renfrew and District Food Bank. Coulibaly, a geologist by trade, recently opened an ice cream parlour in Burnstown and he made a vow to donate ten percent of opening day profits to the food bank. Yesterday, he presented food bank coordinator Doug Brookes with a cheque for five hundred dollars. Brookes says at this time of year, donations are rare.
