About Us

Our Story

Allumette is an urban cafe specializing in artisanal prepared sandwiches, salads, soups, and bistro style meals utilizing organic and local produce. Founder Chef James Coulter created this concept to fit the need of the local urban market. After his career in the high end sports and entertainment field and teaching foundational culinary history he decided to venture out on his own. Using the principles of what he taught, the menu is created on a basis of everything made from scratch. From curing their own bacon to making their own mayonnaise, the food is designed to taste as it is naturally intended. Combined together they have integrated healthy menu items made from scratch into everyday living. 

Focusing on the Urban culture, Chef Coulter decided to take root in the downtown Plano market just steps from the rail line. The concept is quick service for people on the go, but also allows for guests to dine in and relax. Allumette features late night and live entertainment at the end of the week as well as a spectacular brunch on Sundays. 

Allumette also offers catering on a personal to corporate level utilizing all the same standards of the cafe and focusing on impeccable service.
