Actually the owner is only sort of new - I understand there was a divorce, and Mrs. kept the business. Wraps, paninis, baguettes, and a simple but delicious garlic salad dressing. Very reasonable prices. It's a small place, and not air-conditioned, but there are cold beverages. Located on Old Street, which runs perpendicular to Front Street and Back Street.

We were looking for a quaint place to have a snack and coffee where we could get some wifi internet to check out email and such. Au Petit Cafe was perfect. Chocolate Banana Crepes excellent. And the iced coffee was good too, not just some overly sweet premade mix. They will give you a free code for the wifi which... More

Right in the heart of downtown Philipsburg. A great place to stop mid morning for a light bite to eat and a latte. Loved the chocolate banana strawberry Crepes!

We have been coming to St. Martin for many years and looking for great breakfast/lunch options. Au Petit Cafe is one of them. Today we enjoyed a fantastic omlette with ham, cheese and mushroom as well as panni sandwiches (Honore and Saloon) made with fresh baguettes - wonderful. Additionally, the crepes (Ham and Cheese) were the best we have had... More

4 of us in our party, 3 were totally finished before 4th person finally got their meal....and it was wrong. No apologies, acted like we were inconveniencing them. I've had much better food and service on the island than this place.

We stopped for a quick bite and stayed for desserts. We had sandwiches and pizzas, ordered four treats and all loved the chocolate long johns the best. Definitely a nice place to stop for a bite!

Great breakfast! Andy crepes are superb. Cheese platter, toasted on baquet was excellent. Remember, Old Street is a gated street off front street.

We came to this place, tucked into a secluded quiet alley of Frontstreed) several times as a break after shopping and walking along the Boardwalk and Frontstreet. The frozen latté and pina colada were the best they've tasted, according to my daughters. The owner/manager was very friendly. Be sure to stop by this little gem when you're in Philipsburg.

This charming French sidewalk cafe was perfect for our last day in St. Maarten. There is also indoor seating. My friend and I both ordered provencal crepes and were not disappointed. I asked for goat cheese rather than mozzarella and was easily accommodated. Our server was obviously a French speaker who communicated well in English. The atmosphere was pleasant and... More
