I will never eat here again. You don't have to be a picky eater to get grossed out by seeing a cockroach on your table. I told out waiter who smiled nervously and offered me a stale muffin as an apology. Very , very gross. Unless your absolutely starving, avoid.

Pros: Location

Cons: Dirty, bad food

This caf looks cozy but the food is bad. My boyfriend got a sandwich with prosciutto and mozzarella; the bun was pale and cheap, overall the sandwich was just okay, you can get a much better sandwich in the city for the same price. I ordered fish and French fries and it was one of the worst meals I??ve had in the city. The fries were thick and mushy, the fish was a disgusting pre-frozen fillet of unidentifiable origin covered in a thick coat of large crumbs and deep fried. The coating was actually thicker than the fillet itself! They also add 20% tip to your bill (!) for practically non-existent service. I do not recommend this place. I suggest going to Boom next door and trying their wonderful pizza with gorgonzola cheese.

I entered Le Petit on a warm sunday afternoon in search of something new or then again, very simple because i was starving. It looked nice from the outside so i decided to give it a shot. There werent alot of customers so i was wondering what took so long for my order to be taken. I waited around 6 minutes before one felt pity on me for waiting. I ordered a spinach and cheese omelet which comes with home fries and toast. I also ordered a small orange juice.It sounded so delicious . I waited and i noticed my chair was so rickety.I sat next to the counter where they make the coffee. As i sat there, i actually witnessed one woman working there DIP her FINGER into the cup of coffee as if trying to remove a piece of hair or something then she flicked the milk off her fingers into the mug. It was disgusting. Finally, my meal comes to me. The orange juice was excellent-Fresh squeezed orange juice MINUS THE SEEDS. The toast was wonder bread slighty browned and the eggs were oily . The spinach and cheese omelet was NASTY. They used AMERICAN cheese along with the spinach which i expected they would use feta cheese or some other high quality cheese. It tasted just like kraft cheese slices stuffed into a greasy omelet. I was in disbelief at this food. The name LE PETIT sounded so promising. I then decided to try dessert. I ordered a apple pie slice along with another serving of orange juice. When it arrived, it was on a chipped square plate ,warm with two dallops of whipped cream. As i opened the new set of knife and forks, my fork was FILTHY. it had some orange substance on it. I called the waiter back and told him to change it which took him 5 minutes to return . I finished the apple pie and it was not bad. The bill arrived and it came to $49.00 . I was outraged, it is SO not worth it. Please spend your money somewhere else, preferrably an Italian restaurant since there are so many in Soho. This fench restaurant doesnt deserve anything and will probably make you sick. Their title doesnt even deserve to be capitalized.

It's a beautiful Saturday afternnon in SoHo, and I'm fatigued from rigorous shopping. I decide to meander into a lovely little cafe for a nibble of lobster ravioli...and I am blindsided by less than mediocrity. The food was bland, bland, bland, and there was an automatic 20 percent gratuity for no service at all. I asked for a strawberry lemonade with no ice, and the manager desperately wanted the waitress to give me a kiddie cup. Perhaps my standard was too high, and the sun was too bright, but I would NEVER be caught munching here again.

Pros: Example: best croissants in town

Cons: What are the drawbacks?

I've never written a food review before but a week later I'm still so upset at our breakfast experience, I felt the need to save you.

This was the worst food experience I've had on several levels:
Coffee was good, French toast was average, Omelette was terrible. And when the hash browns (listed with dish) ran out, they replaced with COLD hard fries. When I requested the hash browns ordered they refused, when I asked for new fries they simply re-fried them. Imagine twice fried fries for breakfast.

Any request for the basics: water, silverware, cream, sugar, etc. requires a trip to the counter because besides taking the order and delivering food they will not come back.

Note: every check is charged 20% service fee!

Don't expect any apologies for bad food, bad service or for over charging. You've been warned.

Pros: It's in Soho

Cons: Food, Service, Tip Included

This gem located in the heart of Soho was a great find on a busy weekend of shopping. The service was attentive and courteous. The homemade quiche and salad was a great deal and perfect for quick lunch. The wine list has great options at reasonable prices. I would highly recommend it and have gone back often.

Came to NY last week and thought to stop in this cafe for a quick breakfast.. a few minutes after getting my food I noticed 3 animals (system wont let me write the word) coming to 'visit' my food!!! I quickly called over the waitress who apologized and tried to change my food, but, obviously I didnt feel like eating anything else in that place. The worst part of this horrible breakfast was the owner who refused at first to take my breakfast off the bill!! my husband argued with him and finally he said 'FINE! I'll take off the breakfast but NOT the drinks (1 tea and 1 diet coke!)"
he didnt even try to apologize.. I guess he's thinking with all the tourists in that area some more suckers will come and eat there.. I know we'll NEVER be back.

We (me and my wife) stopped at this place for a quick meal last sunday. We couldn't make a worse mistake!!!!! I don't even go with the food that is just like my mom used to make: IT S@CKS!!
But the amazing thing was our waitress. From the beginning she started frowning upon us like we just dropped by during a personal yoga class. We had to wait about 15 minutes only to have the menus!! and inside the place there were like 20 customers and 3 waiters!
After waiting another 20 min. for the food and eating in about 35 seconds (yes, the portions are that small) we asked for the check and after another god 10 minutes she brought us the bill which listed 3 orange juices instead of 2 we drank. Then she disappeared for another 15 minutes until i had to ask another waitress to call ours. The second wait. told us that "she is in the bathroom for sure!!" like its a secret way to evade customers. When she showed up we told her of the mistake and she just told us "that's the service!!!" and vanished again.
No need to say we won't be back there anytime soon, but i'm impressed by the fact that being on a pretty turistic spot these guys will prosper for a long time even despite the horrible service and food.
I finally feel sorry for the tourists.

Pros: say what?

Cons: just about everything

The thing is, if you're exhausted after a whole morning and afternoon of shopping, Le Petite Cafe isn't home of the heartiest meal. It's a charming, dainty little niche of a cafe, not grand eatery. For a place its size, the American/Italian menu is rather large. But the coffees, lattes, especially the chai latte, are fabulous to sip on particularly from the window seats. Desserts are not baked on premise, but the assortment and quality of the baked goods are great. Pop in for something warm to drink and tasteful to nibble on.

I have no idea why the 2 previous reviews are so bad! I have eaten here twice - both times for a quick lunch. You can get a fairly large portion of yummy pasta (spinach and cheese tortellini or penne with vegetables) for less than $10.

the service wasn't bad, either. In fact, I noticed that the waitress kept glancing over at my table to see if we were ready for the check. She didn't schlep over and repeatedly ASK if we were ok, but I consider that a good thing.

Pros: Inexpensive, Creative menu

Cons: Small tables

This establishment looks very sweet from the outside but that's about all it has to offer. I found the service to be mediocre (very unenthusiastic unless they knew you), the food was very ordinary too. While it wasn't horrible, for some reason, the whole expereince really turned me off the place and I doubt I'll ever return. To be fair, it probably isn't a bad place to stop for a coffee - especially if you can sit outside but I wouldn't bother eating there.

This place looks like a cozy little cafe with nice character. Unfortunately it just sucks. My friend and I went in on a nice, crisp fall day and decided to have some apple cider. Apparently in Le Petite Cafe-land, apple cider means luke warm apple juice with half a stick of cinnamon in it. When my friend's chicken salad sandwich arrived, she noticed a nice crust, and it wasn't part of the bread. Whilst trying to send it back the manager said she would still have to pay for half the sandwich. Bad move on their part. We're never going there again, and now it's our mission to spare other diners from a similar fate. Consider yourself warned.
