Frijolito Cafe Coffee Truck

While having dinner at the Food Truck Haven, I came across coffee truck Frijolito.  They said that they are a coffee truck with a Latin twist. There’s not too many food trucks that serves coffee, so I decided to give them a try.

As I walked up to the cart, I noticed a sign that said: check into yelp to get a free gift. The gift was a free hot chocolate. Sure, why not? The young lady asked if I wanted a Mexican hot chocolate or an American hot chocolate. In fact, she suggested I could get it iced, since it was so hot that night.

I decided on a iced Mexican hot chocolate, and paid $0.50 to have it made with soy milk instead of whole milk. The two ladies were very friendly and they provided quick service. I even did a little hockey ribbing with the young lady, who was an LA Kings fan boasting about her team in my Orange County

Why Frijolito’s?

Frijolito, can be a term of endearment when Latinos refer to a, Little Bean. So, in order to bring you a mobile coffee shop with a Latin twist, it was a “no brainer”…Frijolito’s was dreamt up, and he came to live. Our goal was to bring to the streets, a grassroots approach to café con pan dulce, or coffee and sweet bread. Let’s face it…coffee is in our Latin blood. Whether it’s smell of moms café con leche en la mañana, a quick shot of espresso to wake you up after a big ol’ lunch, or just a little cafésito with something sweet after dinner, coffee is a big part of our Latin culture.

¿Quiénes Somos? / Who We Are

Ave Maria! Que Dios de Bendiga for stopping by! We’re just two ordinary, passionate Latinos that love and culture brought together. Our story of this journey begins in 2009, when we close one door, and were hopeful to open another. It was that moment that the seed was planted, that inspired us, to continue our dream and pursue the love of comradery, customer service and our Latin culture.
Today, Frijolito’s Mobile Coffe Shop, we have the privilege and the hunger to bring every community a wide variety of coffee from all over Latin America, with a twist! With handcrafted signature drinks like Mariachi Loco, El Coqui, Frijolito’sMocha and Spanish Fly, to name a few, we worked hard to at our recipes to bring you high quality, great customer service at reasonable market pricing.
The art of mobility, and being free to move about the different areas and communities, is what we are bringing to our customers. We give the customer the opportunity to stay comfortable in their home and office, and allow us to come and serve you!
Our gourmet coffee truck with a Latin twist, is perfect for catering your birthday party, school events, corporate parties and house party!!!

From the web site:

Monsieur Madame is promoting French Art de vivre, Culture and Traditions
Our food is deeply rooted into French Gastronomy into family traditions and a certain idea of an artisan food.

While high end French Gastronomy for plutocrats is very well represented abroad, we believe the artisan; the street food and le petit commerce are not. France and French Gastronomy is also defined by its artisans, its Charcuteries, its Fromageries, its markets and last but not least, its Boulangeries Patisseries.

It was only logic we chose a Bistro Classic, the Croque Monsieur to become the ambassador of street French Gastro, a different angle to the French art de vivre. Le Croque Monsieur can be cooked in so many ways, from the kid’s classic straight from the sandwich maker to a chef recipe or your grandma French toast Croque.

Monsieur Madame is also the life adventure of a nomad family. Monsieur and Madame have been traveling west since 2006 and arrived in Southern California in 2011.

Nissa (Madame) & Jeremie (Monsieu) Banet
Madame’s family arrived in France from Algeria.

While couscous remained the family’s signature dish, they were quick to adopt the French passion for cheese. Brie is Madame’s favorite. Madame interrupted her finance career in 2009 and has spent most her time cooking since. Her homemade no knead bread is fantastic. In 2014, Madame decided to share her mixed flavors and passion for food with Californians. Monsieur Madame was born, and she would be the chef.

Monsieur’s family has its roots in Alsace and Poland. His grandmother used to make the best strudel in Paris and would bait her grandkids with chocolate to teach them how to put a foot in front of the other. His other grandmother Odette Kahn was writing cookbooks before it was fashionable and launched the famous French specialized magazine “Cuisine et vins de France”. In 2014, monsieur decided to put an end to his career as an investor, to step off the treadmill. It was time to follow his heart and joined Madame.
