About La Petite Tart

You might not have Paris in the Spring time but you can have an any time indulgence of Parisian decadence at La Petite Tarte.

A little tart on a little pavement of a little Parisian café is afterall the subject of many a French love song and the muse of many a French poet. This mistress on Dixon Street is furnished with flair and tossed with elegance. Quintessentials from the mother continent charm the inner atmosphere with a sophisticated style that has you wanting to sport a beret in a nonchalant manner. Slip secrets with a friend over a fruit tart or take yourself on a little day date bringing the latest copy of French Vogue to page through while you sip on your café au lait and nibble on croque monsieurs.

Display cabinets are plump with sweet and savoury sins that flirt in whispers thick with French attitude. Pastries and quiches are baked fresh each day fragrancing this petite coffee shop with the melting of sugar into the arms of butter. The recipes seem to have been captured in a kitchen that played Edith Piaf music softly from a brass gramophone in the corner. Light lunches and lusty teas-times will convert the most practical to romantics who fall in love at first bite. Even the fresh salads seduce health with a wink and a whistle. A little French breakfast will have you starting the day with rose-petal glasses 'la vie en rose' while a little after five tipple served with amuse bouche will have you toasting to the French Revolution from the De Waterkant village.
