Great service lovely food: If you like tasteful french sandwiches or lunch. The staff of le petite cafe is very helpful and cheerful. The lunches I had there were just great. Every variety has it;s own taste and despite that it is prepared with care you don;t have to wait long to be served. Most certainly a recommendation for lunch... More

We stopped here for a bite of lunch while on a cruise ship stopover, the quiche was excellent and the smoothies just what we needed after a morning of shopping.

We needed food and it was late. This was one of the few open past ten so we did it. It was very good food and the service was pretty fast too. The conch stew and tapas mix plate were great! The prices were decent and the location was in the outdoor mall area near Bikini Beach. Server was very... More

Last year, my friend and I discovered this hidden gem... The owner is a delightful French woman who brought her gift of crepes to the island. We went back twice that week... Since then, on separate cruises with NCL, we've wandered back to enjoy her homemade delicacies, great conversation, and engaging guests. This is a MUST SEE when you're visiting... More

We turned around and there it was. A French sidewalk cafe on this side of the Atlantic . The smoothies were delicious as was the Brie cheese sandwich . My friend had the mango avocado goat cheese salad and she said it was delicious. It is a gem and well worth finding it.

We had breakfast here 3 times. The staff are really friendly. Great cappuccino and freshly squeezed juices of various sorts. It's not fast food so it does take a little while for everything to arrive but we weren't in a hurry. Croissants, omelettes, all great. Nice location too. We really liked this place. Highly recommended for a relaxing breakfast. The... More

The breakfast is terrific, best i had on my stay. BUT BUT BUT! Beware - the service isn't slow, but the meal will take 45 minutes or so. It's... More

We went downtown to shop and this place was on our list of things to do. We stopped in the morning and had Chocolate and Banana Crepes with homemade Raspberry Green Tea. It was so good and the owner's friend working there was so very nice. How do the French stay so slim? Not only was the food good the... More

Awesome cute little caffe! I love ice coffees, and had a hard time finding one on the island. This cafe made one for me, and although different, was still delicious!
