“Closed”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2014

This coffee shop suddenly closed and posted a sign stating that a great opportunity had come up and they would be re-opening in three weeks. They never re-opened. Since then a new owner bought the place and it has opened under a new name. (I don't really have a rating for the old place but TripAdvisor required me to give it at least one star.)

“Coffee at the Beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2013

Nothing better on a crisp morning to have a hot cup of coffee and put your toes in the sand. Staff was cool and lowkey. Coffee was great and it smelled like roasted beans! Walking from there to the beach was perfect. Always good place to relax and enjoy!

I don't know why this place is not full all the time, Kate is adorable and so the girls that work here. The almond cake is to die for and coffee is awesome

“Yummy Cakes!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

Petite Reve Cafe was a wonderful find while on our vacation in Ventura, CA. They had a nice assortment of cakes, cupcakes, scones, brownies, and various other pastries. They also have a wide assortment of teas and coffee. On my first visit, I had a lemon bar. I believe they use lemons grown locally. It was pretty yummy. The next day I went back and tried a lemon lavender cake. It was delicious. It had just a hint of lavender flavor. I also tried one of their iced coffee drinks. That was also very good -- not bitter at all. The service was fast and friendly. The young lady behind the counter was very knowledgeable and asked me if I enjoyed my coffee drink. She seemed to take a lot of care in preparing it. When in Ventura, please give Petite Reve Cafe a try.
