HSBC's Small Business Spotlight Series at Cafe Vert

By: Surfside Nov 07, 2019

The Town of Surfside is thrilled to share that one of our local restaurants, Café Vert, has been featured nationally as part of HSBC’s Small Business Spotlight Series. The campaign profiles HSBC Retail Business Banking customers around the country, focusing on how these small businesses are using the HSBC Fusion platform to manage their finances.  

Café Vert is just one of the local businesses that contribute to the small-town charm of Surfside. Specializing in kosher and gluten-free food, Café Vert has become a fixture in the community and a go-to for breakfast and lunch in the area.  Started by Claude Labi and his wife Eva, this family-owned business is a true Surfside gem.  


The Story of Café Vert  

With a dream of opening a restaurant in America, Claude and Eva moved their family from Marseilles, France to Surfside in 2007 and opened Café Vert. After 10 years of successfully running the business and establishing themselves as a staple of the local community, they decided to expand by purchasing the space next door to the cafe. 

As long-time HSBC customers, they procured a small business loan via the HSBC Fusion platform to cover construction costs, new equipment and ease the costs of the expansion. See Claude and Eva’s full story in the video below. 

Whether you’re currently on vacation in Surfside, planning a future getaway, or just looking for some great hot spots around the Town, visit Café Vert for a coffee or delicious omelet breakfast and continue to support our local community.
