Croissants imported from France and baguettes made fresh daily: Petit Franco-Belge is Melbourne’s new little slice of French provincial cafe dining.
And while you might be familiar with Petit Franco-Belge’s counterpart Franco-Belge, this new Camberwell Junction venue is a bit more intimate and focused on French cafe nostalgia versus Franco-Belge’s bistro vibes.
With an appetising array of house-baked pastries and a menu laced with mouth-watering options—including gluten-free treats—Petit Franco-Belge is a home-run for everyone.
Sip on the deliciously aromatic Adore coffee blend while you soak in the cozy, intimate setting. And with all that cutesy French cafe decor, you might actually forget you’re in Melbourne for a second.
If you’re feeling a bit peckish, bite into a fluffy croissant or perhaps a baguette filled with goat’s cheese, fresh capsicum and radish. Bring a vintage copy of a Marcel Proust novel and you’ve got yourself a little French tea party.
Translating the bustle of Parisian style cafés to Melbourne with its own unique take, Petit Franco-Belge will become a definite hotspot in the colder autumn to winter months. Nothing like a little Franco-Belge je-ne-sais-quoi to perk you up on a rainy day.
