This will be short and sweet. Their coffee is good. Omelet with smoked salmon, asparagus and feta cheese was delicious. Accompanying fruit salad fresh. Atmosphere reminiscent of a cafe in Paris. Price good.

Love this restaurant! I'm a bit of a food snob and everything is always good. Especially love the weekend breakfasts. The bonus is the used bookstore that's fun to walk around in next door.

Starting in Cheshire we often cycle to West Rock, East Rock and stop at Le Petit Gourmet for lunch on the return. Great food, friendly service, indoor & outdoor seating. My favorites are the turkey sandwich & the black forest ham croissant.
