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.

Sitting in the courtyard on a beautiful afternoon, was just perfect. Excellent service and fun atmosphere. This restaurant has been around for a long time and never fails to deliver....glad to be...

One of the few places where it is possible to sit outside, overlooking the boats. Owner and chef is French. His bread is excellent. Great pastries. However, staff needs training. Menu good, but service a bit erratic. Given what is available here, this is a gem.

Whenever my wife and I want to treat ourselves -- we come here for pastries, latte and tea. We have tried 8 or 10 pastries so far and all have been delicious. We have not eaten at the restaurant yet but it always seems busy.

Came here for hot cocoa (which is made with milk, not the hot water variety) and some pastries. The hot cocoa was good and was the right temperature but it was a bit too sweet for my liking. The real winner here is there double toasted almond croissant. Holy cow was that good. It was still flaky with the right... More
