My friend Sally and I needed a place she could access with her walker after recent surgery. It was a sunny warm day and the cafe has a lovely outdoor patio with a view of the boats docked in the harbor and the hills in the distance. Just perfect for a relaxing lunch. We also ordered desserts to eat later.... More

We lunched and indulged ourselves on the patio. I had the duck, duck which was moist, tender and delicious. My wife had the crab cakes on a croissant. We both had dessert and gobbled each forkful. All the food was fresh and delectable

Owner of Le Petit Cafe is genuine Frenchman with all the appropriate commendations of a genuine French Chef. All the dishes and baked goods are as close to that found in France as I have found in the States Wonderful indoor as well as outdoor dinning areas to make your enjoyment of the meal special.

La Petit Café was a great little spot with amazing breakfast. It’s a French style bistro that serves incredible Eggs Benedict! Normally this dish is served on a roll or English muffin, but La Petit puts the egg, ham, and hollandaise sauce on a buttery sweet croissant that makes it absolutely to die for! Though a little pricey, they had... More

I love the friendly service and family run atmosphere of this wonderful French restaurant. And what a great bonus it is to have such a terrific menu selection of traditional French cuisine. My wife and I enjoy taking our friends to experience La Petit Cafe & Bakery.

I was craving meat so I ordered the steak. Had to send it back because it was well done and I ordered Medium. The Béarnaise sauce looked like a science project. Really??? Buy a bloody packet at the grocery store if you can't figure it out. The rest of my party had sandwiches and they looked good.

Must visit cafe along Ventura Harbor. Had crepes, fresh fruit, coffee and croissant for Sunday mid-morning meal. Nice place to eat and visit with friends indoors or outdoors in the open air cafe (memories of Southern France). Will visit on next trip.

We dropped by for breakfast and were looking forward to a tasty pastry filled breakfast but were disappointed. The pastry is not very good and is a somewhat pricey. The Coffee was average. The service was just ok.
