    Been coming here for years and just realized the fresh hippy juices are the sleeper hit. I got some fruity thing called "peace of mind" pineapple, orange, banana, mango, boom.

    Don't let the "cafe" label fool you. Go there for dinner. I find it to be the best kept secret as far as dinner in Brooklyn is concerned. Never a wait and food is delicious.

    One of my favorite spots! Great food and amazing atmosphere! Loved it so much we had our wedding and reception in the back garden area! They really made it an incredible experience! ❤

    Found the perfect place to hold jewelry making classes. Such friendly staff and beautiful decor. The atmosphere was perfect, and so were the mango mimosa!

    Friendly service, but sometimes slow. Came for brunch and had a great poached egg dish, the cafe special. Sat in the front because back was closed for a private event -- but looked amazing.

    Excellent iced chai. Mediocre brunch food. Really cute garden area in the back though.

    Amazing outdoor patio/garden with waterfalls. So relaxing, you feel like you're in a garden in France! Come here if you're sad or if NY is getting the best of you. Petit cafe will perk u up in no time

    An adorable cafe with great food. The garden is one of a kind and not to be missed. We love it so much that we were married here! So beautiful!

    Been getting my morning coffee here every day for 4 years! Garden out back is a gorgeous oasis in summer. Often busy but forgive the service as the eggs benedict are to die for. Best fresh juices too!

    Great for brunch, good dinner too. The back seating area is like a lovely grotto, though it might be too cute for some.

    Big fan of "the small cafe". Iced coffee every Saturday and a stellar arugula salad with avocado, portabella mushroom, and goat cheese. They don't have the same lunch salads at dinner tho... too bad

    The garden in the back is perfect for a mellow time with friends or cute date. Prime Brooklyn weekend vibes.

    Delightful ambiance, flamboyant designs reflecting an esoteric garden, and a menu that offers a succulent variety of food and drinks

    Take in the whimsical allure of the glowing string lights, rustic brick walls, and charming menu of dainty tea cakes and fresh, flaky croissants. Read more

    A linger-friendly patio garden and extensive coffee and tea menu make this cash-only spot worth staying a while.

    Get the polenta special for breakfast. It's great with eggs over easy, but make sure to add. Bit more salt and hit sauce, which completes the balance with the fattiness of the eggs and cheese

    Nice decor - great sitting area in the back. Food is very average - more corner diner than french cafe

    In Brooklyn's pretty Carroll Gardens neighborhood, the food (esp. paninis) is great, and the garden-like outdoor seating is beautiful, complete with waterfalls! Perfect French getaway (w/o leaving U.

    $21.95 3 course dinner prix fixe is good deal for the quality and amount of food. For any dessert purist the creme brûlée isn't brûlée but is nice anyway with berries. Cash only. Service spotty.

    Their iced-coffee is some of the best in the neighborhood. Nice back garden, but i prefer to eat at some of the other neighborhood spots.

    Food is great, but the service isn't efficient. Restaurant had three tables seated and it took forever for us to get our food. Even longer for them to bring us our change! Probably won't go back.

    Don’t expect fast service for brunch, but the lovely back garden atmosphere and delicious food make up for it. This place is a labor of love.

    hair in salad, waitress lost our check, 2 hour brunch with not one refill of water. On top of that, shrimp frittatas used frozen tasteless shrimp, dense pancakes, cold breakfast potatoes. Never again.

    The pumpkin pancakes are excellent, but unfortunately they serve you Aunt Jemima syrup to put over them. Spinach/Swiss omelet also very yummy, and great cappuccino.

    Very pretty interior and tasty food, but nothing to get hype about. Just a typical breakfast place. Do NOT get the flan- it was horribly overbaked.

    I usually really like it here. But went there last Saturday, and the service was terrible. The food took forever. Maybe they were having an off day.

    Food was okay but the ambiance in the back made up for it. Service wasn't too good either
