Le Petit Café Restaurant Review

: This family-owned establishment in Santa Monica has a quaint charm with its sunny Provençal colors, cozy ambience and chalkboard menu. A few tables are placed outside along the white picket fence. Starters at Le Petit Café feature traditional French items like escargots and a Cognac-infused pâté, as well as spinach and ricotta ravioli in a tomato, basil and mushroom sauce. Select from an assortment of salads, including the simple but tasty chilled mushroom salad with homemade shallot vinaigrette. Continue with bistro classics such as chicken in Dijon sauce, roasted duck or calf's liver with sautéed shallots, or perhaps a special like tenderloin tips. For dessert, you may find crème caramel, a chocolate tart and an apple tart served on a plate decorated with vanilla sauce and raspberry coulis.
