Describe what you do in town.

My husband, Patrick Evans and I own MarieBette Café & Bakery in the Rose Hill neighborhood. He is the baker. I am the chef.

Describe yourself in 5 syllables or less.

Living our dream. (Corny but true.)

A favorite dish in town.

The Margherita DOC at Lampo is awesome. Only been once for lunch, but it was very memorable.

A favorite drink in town.

I love the Viognier at Blenheim. Does that count? I’m more of a wine guy. It’s less dangerous.

A favorite local fitness class or fitness event.

I recently joined MADabolic. I like the short, intense workouts and the energy. You’re not allowed to waste time (which has always been easy for me to do in a gym) and you’re in & out quickly feeling exhausted. But you feel great.

A favorite local artist (any type other than musician).

My father-in-law, John Borden Evans. Talented artist, incredible human being.

Charlottesville is a city filled with local-loving people, and a spirit of community and collaboration unlike anywhere else. Every week, Cville Niche celebrates that spirit by featuring a local’s top picks.
