“A perfect bistro”
Reviewed May 18, 2013 via mobile

This place is great! Small quaint atmosphere, you actually feel as if you're in a little bistro in France. There's indoor and outdoor seating. The outdoor seating is very nice, a nice view of locals doing their daily moving about. We chose indoors because it was a little warm. Inside there is a lot of authentic French decor. It really adds life to the place. The menu doesn't get too in depth. There's salads, paninis, wraps, and baguette sandwiches. I had the ranch wrap. It was so fresh and she serves it with a freshly made garlic sauce. Excellent. Also had the freshly made mango tea. It was pretty good, she makes different flavors daily. I would definitely try another! Long story short, find OLD ST. and try it!

Unfortunately we didn't actually find this place in time to enjoy a meal here but we were in desperate need of a nice baguette and they kindly sold us one (their business is really premade sandwiches) the woman was so nice and helpful, positing out a good place to get nice cheese. Awesome bread! Next time we go back we will be enjoying lunch here. The sandwiches look amazing!

“Do not miss in St Maarten”
Reviewed March 3, 2013

We came across Au Petit Cafe by chance on our 1st cruise to St Maarten, and boy did we get lucky.

Excellent genuine French cafe fare at terrific prices. Very friendly people here always make you feel at home.

Highly highly recommended.
