Wonderful lunch spot

Delightful little cafe with a lovely outdoor verandah. Had a delicious home made pie with salad, and it was just like my mum would make. Lovely!

We live in Green Point and were in a bit of a rush . We wanted a quick lunch and I think we made the right choice when we went to la Petite Tarte. Lovely fresh food and attentive service! We will be back for sure.

This is typical CCCape Town. Little quaint coffee shop, interesting decor, lots of freshly baked cakes and a view onto the street. Everyone at the table gets a different antique cup. Thoroughly enjoyable, good stop off.

We were rushing to get to the Robben Island ferry and the rather leisurely approach to service meant that although the breakfast was good, the service friendly and the setting pleasing, the whole meal was rather stressful!!

My wife and our two boys checked out this place for breakfast. To say the least, it was wonderful. So much flavor and the portions were perfect. Will definitely go again when we're back in Cape Town.

LPT, as it is referred to in our house, is always worth a visit. I cannot possibly count the number of times we have visited. My daughters love LPT's cakes and chose this above any other treat when we recently had a Saturday morning free. My husband and I love this spot for lunch. The food, coffee, wine and service...

A very casual and chic place with very nice treats and food... Ideal place for lunch or a catch up with friends, it's only open during the day... And can be quite busy, because it's good... It's a good choice...

This is one o fmy favourite breakfast/lunch spots in Ct although I don't seem to get here often enough, coming from the Southern Suburbs and battling the parking constraits in the area. However the atmosphere and food never fail and the quality is always consistent! Well done Len & Johann - keep up te good work!

Still our best breakfast place to date and we have been to many. La Petite Tarte is something special where one feels like part of a family and you are welcomed back time after time. Omnipresent hosts Len and Johan are passionate about what they do and whether Johan is adding a magical touch to a massive floral arrangement or... More
