A glass of wine, cup of onion soup, salad and banquette topped it with lemon cake. A very relaxing day. All was good but if your a coffee drinker, sorry the coffee is very weak.

Had lunch with a friend, I had the steamed clams with a baguette. The baguette was crunchy and warm, perfect for dipping in the clam's broth. Both were super tasty and the view was nice. I heard that the twice baked almond croissants are to die for, I will try them next time.

Baguettes limited, so reserve or buy in advance. Cakes pricey, but well worth it. Talk to the chef. A little bit of France in a desolate wasteland. Service people a bit too chatty for me. I do not want a friend, I want a professional waiter. I lived in France. Lovely outdoor seating.

Although the name ends in Bakery...this is a full fledged restaurant with inside and outside dining...it is located right on the water in Ventura Harbor. The food is ALWAY delicious and fresh. Of course, the breads and desserts are wonderful. The owner and his wife are very personable and make sure that their customers enjoy themselves. Not to be missed... More

Took my daughter, son-in-law and grandson here for dinner. I had my grandson all day and we were meeting his mom and dad. The service as always was impeccable, they assisted in finding us a table in an area where the high chair and stroller would not be in the way and would be perfect as to not disturb others... More

We have been here due to the excellent ratings. The place is nice, staff very friendly, but the food was not really so good. We had eggs benedict and an omelette. The croissants have been ok but not so good, seen much better ones. Far too much grease and salt, and I am sure not on the fat free sugar... More

Cute place and good food. We took an impromptu drive from northern L.A. County over to Ventura for lunch and a stroll downtown. Found this place on an internet search of restaurants in Ventura. We were able to sit outside on the patio with a view of the marina. It was a great outdoor cafe atmosphere with amazing weather. Service... More

Le Petite Cafe is both a wonderful bakery and French Restaurant all under one roof. We recently had dinner there with friends and once again loved our evening. The owner is the chef and his wife is the bartender and sometimes server. The service is efficient while still being friendly and they always make you feel like they are happy... More

My friend Sally and I needed a place she could access with her walker after recent surgery. It was a sunny warm day and the cafe has a lovely outdoor patio with a view of the boats docked in the harbor and the hills in the distance. Just perfect for a relaxing lunch. We also ordered desserts to eat later.... More
