My partner and I had lovely Americano's, and he had the sandwich special which he thorougly enjoyed. I chose one of their daily pastries, a rarity for me but it was quite lovely. We like Mon Petit Choux -... More

Delicious French cuisine. Suitable for breakfast, brunch, lunch, or dinner. Best café latte I've ever had. Make sure you order at the cash register though as waitresses seem to get busy and overlook people waiting to order at tables.

Had a really good breakfast here during an enjoyable morning. Centrally located, excellent food, quaint atmosphere. Would definitely return here on our next trip to Nanaimo.

Located in the heart of old Nanaimo, Mon Petit Choux offers a light menu of quality products. Very good coffee and pastries, however the atmosphere and decor could stand an updating.

Stopped by Nanaimo a few days ago and ordered a beef sandwich. It came in an acceptable french baguette but there was just only meat and a sauce, no vegetable nor salad, very surprisingly. I should have had a proper breakfast maybe...

Hi Benoit I am surprise to have read the word deceptive in your review because we do not mention vegetables or salad in the description of our beef sandwich. it is done with beef, garlic aioli, caramelised onions and Brie and an organic baguette Gaetan More

Stopped into Mon Petit Choux for lunch. The staff were great. The food and coffee delicious. It has a bakery worthy of takeout for your post-meal stroll desert.

I have had breakfast a few times there and always impresses. Take home some goodies or bread for later, too. The space is open and bright. Particularly nice on a summer morning.

This is a great place to stop for lunch or have a meeting. The vegetarian sandwich on fresh baguette with goat cheese and roasted veggies is fantastic. Nice space. Really good coffee.

Greta welcoming, smiling, helpful service. Quaint ambiance and serving food most of the day when other places may be closed, eg mid afternoon when you missed lunch. A little overpriced for the small portions they serve.
