Lately we have been going here a lot for breakfast. The breakfast sandwich is a great deal $7 with coffee, add another $1 to make it a latte. I LOVE the french toast. It isn't really toast, it is cake, covered in syrup and cream with fresh fruit. Put a little Canadian bacon on the side and it is a... More

We stopped in here to have lunch/brunch before picking up a friend arriving on the ferry from the mainland. The windows were steamed up, it was pouring rain outside, yet upon entering Mon Petit Choux you feel welcomde and open to experiencing this lovely eclectic place. We had a brunch and my scrambled eggs with smoked salmon and capers was... More

I found My Petit Choux walking on Commercial. People are nice, food is good. Good deal the morning with their breakfast sandwich or the afternoon with their coffee pastry. I have been there many time and the food is always consistent but not when the blondy is alone in the kitchen, it looks like she is totally lost and I... More

This is lovely spot, on a street where you can enjoy a latte and a baked treat, or a light lunch. The chocolate salted caramel tart is to DIE FOR!

Good place for coffee on the scenic downtown Commercial Street. Wonderful selection of treats to go with your coffee. Different kinds of bread and sandwiches are also great.

Almost like an old fashioned European coffee house. There is also some outside seating. Nice sandwiches and soup and lovely pastries, which are a bit pricey, but very good. Closes in the late afternoon.

While the plants could use a little TLC, the warm and welcoming atmosphere persists, as does the high quality of the food and coffee. Try a "cinnamon bun" with your coffee. Although it doesn't look like the usual doughy bun, the taste is more than equal.

a few years back, I reviewed this funky little place and rereading that effort, I have to conclude that someone is doing something right.....the coffee is still consistently good, the food changing, but always something for everyone and the ownership is still on the spot....I was particularly charmed by the fact that this time....our server made an effort to converse...
