The café is small, we had crepes and fresh juice, about $20 a person. Can be a bit hot, a little dark, the food was not bad, nor exceptional, but I thought for a bite it was good. Service was friendly! Location is very good, while shopping.

We had lunch at the cafe on a quiet Monday (no cruise ships). It's a cute place with indoor and outdoor seating. We had crepes. Goat cheese with smoked salmon and onions. Also cheese chicken and bacon. The crepes are large and are made one at a time. There was a small salad on each plate. I could not finish... More

We docked in St Maarten via Anthem of the Sea for just a relaxing shopping afternoon. Asking around where to eat lunch, one of the business owners pointed us in the direction of Au Petit Café. The café is off the beaten path and that is what we were looking for. The food, drinks and atmosphere were awesome. You can... More

What a gem! Tired of walking & shopping on Front Street, we found this French bistro while looking for someplace to have lunch. The "street" has many wonderful places, so allow yourself time to explore, after you eat here! Out party of 6, had to split and 2 of us sat inside the others outside under the umbrella. We were...

Had the opportunity to have breakfast here that was so good we went the next day too! Delicious Crepes and Omelettes made in a unique style that sets them apart. Located on a side street between Front Street and Old Street it was easy to find after a friend recommended it to us. Casual dining outside and then a chance... More

I stopped to have coffee and a wonderful breakfast while my wife and daughter shopped. It was very relaxing with good food and very pleasant service. Got caught up on the news and sports using their free wi-fi while I doubled up on the coffee and fresh-squeezed juice. Mmmmmmm.

We were hungry and really hot. Wanted something fresh and local. Saw the trip advisor certificate of excellence on the front so we went in. The most delicious fresh baguette I have ever tasted! Cold beer. Friendly service. Delicious food. It was busy so you can't be in a hurry (worth the wait). Reasonable prices. Quirky and cool. Definitely recommend.... More
