I come here after a Doctor's appointment to relax and soak up the surroundings. You come in and pick any seat you want. You can self serve your coffee as you come in.

Nice little French bistro with good food and coffee. Great broken yolk sandwiches, yogurt/granola/fresh fruit parfait, omelets, and sandwiches. Atmosphere is usually crowded, but cozy.

Petite Chou is our favorite spot for breakfast! The croissant French toast is to die for and the broken yolks are another favorite. It has a very nice atmosphere but its also family friendly.

Petite Chou is a fancy breakfast destination. As the name implies, french food is featured, although heartier fare is undoubtedly available. This is a place where there may be legitimate chefs preparing your meal and should not disappoint those willing to pay for an above average breakfast. The ambiance is not particularly remarkable, but you will leave satisfied with the... More

Great place for brunch. I enjoy eating here with my girlfriends. The restaurant has an open feel. The staff are friendly and always open to tell you about their favorite dishes. When the weather is good the out door seating is the best.They also have the best lavender Prosecco drink.

The extension that connects Clay Terrace to the Monon Trail is finally complete. It is nice to finish our ride on Monon with a breakfast at Petite Chou. We had the special omelet for the day which never disappoints. The bread selection is a difficult choice...the toast or the English Muffin. Don't forget the toast also can come with cinnamon...

Today a friend and I lunched at Petite Chou at Clay Terrace. We chose to lunch there based on the menu published on the web. We were disappointed that the actual menu had been dumbed down to be rather pedestrian in our opinion. We had looked forward to a Tartine, one of the Specialties (Le Club, Le Club Salmon or... More

Usually come here twice every year, which is nice because it keeps it as what I would call "a special occasion." Food is great as is the service. Waiters are ever so kind and setting is prepped well. Nice place.

We ate there for a Christmas holiday breakfast. The family enjoyed your meal and the omelette was outstanding. My grandson's waffle had to be sent back because it was cold. Overall excellent food.
