My Review of Chateau 4 Paws

Chateau 4 Paws is a dog salon that is owned by Janelle Russell-Jones. From my first interaction with Janelle for my dog's grooming appointment, it was evident that she really loves what she does! She was actually featured in the July 2014 issue of Who's Who's Women in Business. Mello (my K9) was eagerly greeted and he instantly took to her. During the consultation, she reviewed our preferences to ensure complete satisfaction. Mello was promptly walked to the back and we were promised a call when he was ready. A few hours later that call came and we arrived to pick up our freshly bathed and excited four-legged family member. Mello's calmness (hence the name) was praised by the staff and they answered our questions for future care. To top it all off, the price was very competitive for what we had been paying at other groomers. I highly recommend that you take your pet to Chateau 4 Paws - you will not be disappointed!

My Review of Le Petite Marche

Le Petit Marche is located in the Kirkwood section of Atlanta. The owner, Marchet Sparks, is a California native who established her business in 2008 "as a true market complete with fresh breads, cheeses, pestos, unique locally-made pantry items and flavor-packed sandwiches, soups and salads". As the economy started to decline and with countless requests to turn the market into a place that served breakfast sandwiches, Ms. Sparks listened to her customers and switched gears. Le Petit Marche now serves the community with one-of-a-kind breakfast offerings and specialty sandwiches. The atmosphere is cozy and you can tell that it is a family-owned business. My wife and I recently ate breakfast here and we were delighted with the unique spin on seasonings that were in the eggs and french toast. Some may find the space a little tight but we actually preferred it over that of a chain restaurant. Whether you live nearby or just want to try something different, I would definitely recommend that you stop in at Le Petit Marche to see what they have to offer!
