I love this place so much. The food is always fresh and delicious. The coffee and smoothies are always on point. The decor makes you feel like you are in a zen garden! I have been eating here for years and always have a wonderful experience.

Romantic surroundings, fresh and well prepared meal, great service. We so enjoyed our dinner here on Feb. 14th 2017. As a Carroll Gardens resident, I was so delighted that we have such an attractive restaurant with such great food so close by. I had the chicken and my husband had the salmon. Also, you have to try the apple pie,... More

A great little eatery hidden inside Carroll Gardens. What looks like a quaint bakeshop from the outside, once escorted to the back of the café, you enter the restaurant. A wonderful little Zen-like paradise. Cozy and serene. Filled with plants, branches, candles, water fountains, and all things tranquil. Add great food to those perks and you have a wonderful escape... More

Hubs and I were strolling down Court Street looking for a place to eat a late lunch. We stumbled onto Le Petit Cafe. It looked small when we first walked in, but then we were seated in the back of the cafe where a huge garden oasis unfolded unexpectedly! Really, this place is fantastic! Very relaxing and peaceful environment. Great... More

Unlike my earlier review where my guests and I enjoyed "A wonderful vibe and great brunch in a lively back room," we were seated quickly at the front window because, unfortunately, the place was packed and there are people (no idea where they come from) who will foolishly wait on line for a full 45 minutes for brunch! What possesses... More

This restaurant has probably the most beautiful garden space ever! Surrounded by gorgeous stonework and Buddha statues, it is a calm and peaceful atmosphere. I usually order the amaretto French toast, which is delicious, and an unusual dish which is not readily available on other brunch menus. The cappuccino is very good, and the prices are reasonable. We went during... More

We went out of curiosity and were pleasantly surprised to be ushered into a cavernous back room with great light and a waterfall by a disarmingly friendly gent named Jerry. Our brunch was as comparably fresh and delectable as others along the Court/Smith streets restaurant row. We sat unhurried, sipping mimosas with our unexpectedly impressed guest from California. I almost... More

We were there for breakfast and had a look at the menu for dinner. We were not disappointed that evening. Dinner was excellent in a lovely atmosphere. Prices were reasonable.

No words! Place is amazing! Garden is so soothing and relaxing, truly one of a kind place in the heart of DT Brooklyn. Food is fresh, simple and very affordable. Everything from pastries to a hunger steak taste excellent! My favorite: arugula salad with portobello mushrooms , roasted papers and grilled shrimp. Do your self a solid - enjoy your... More

I feel guilty leaving a bad review for a locally owned business, but this place is just not up to par. First, when you walk in it's not clear if you're supposed to sit down for service or go up to the counter. There's almost never anyone who works there behind the counter or in the vicinity. You have to... More
