“A bit of France in SMA”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 February 2012

We love to pop by El Petit Four mid-morning for a wonderful espresso (they use Lavazza coffee) and a pastry. All the sweets are delicious, and we have also sampled the sandwiches, which make a perfect light lunch. It's entertaining to watch the pastries being made through the window, too... Highly recommended!

“Delicious, fabulous, gorgeous”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 February 2012

just a few words to describe the pastries here made by the talented chef Paco who also has a market tour/cooking class. Forget the calories and be sure to go here

“The best chocolate cake”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 January 2012

This small bakery has the lightest, moistest, most chocolatey cake I've ever tasted and everything else looked heavenly.

“You and yours deserve this feel good experience !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 January 2012

Happy bakers!!! What amazing treasures in the case!!! Our friends ordered a Yule Log cake for Christmas. You can order trays of chocolates,cookies, sandwiches. Just ask Paco Cardenas the co owner he will make it happen. The whole little bakery smells like butter and chocolate. The smells of baking come pouring out of the little window on the sidewalk.... I can never pass without an amazing coffee and a treat
