huey1914 reviewed Le Petit Prince
If this place ever closes I’m buying all the ‘le petit prince’ décor. Coffee was good, balance and well textured. Food was good too. Service was good, alas totally smile-less and any attempt at conversation hit a brick wall. For a place that calls itself ‘le petit prince’, has two soft-toy foxes, various Little Prince books, lots of ‘little prince’ artwork, the staff need to read Antoine’s masterpiece and pay attention to the fox’s immortal words; It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eyes.

Very nice food and generous servings. Coffee is code black. Very well prepared. Latte was well prepared the coffee/milk ratio was perfect. Milk well textured and did not drown the coffee at all. The doppio was very well made, flavoursome and the temperature was just right. I used to think that sparking water with the doppio was trendy overkill, but it has become so ingrained that today I was upset it wasn’t forthcoming.
Fantastic coffee, nice punch even in latte form, so good I’ll get a doppio. I’ll be back on the return trip.

Exceptional coffee. Exceptional food - had the cheeseburger Atmosphere got a low rating from me as it’s 32 degrees outside and given the 1960’s window fitted air conditioner it’s 40 degrees in here. Service was good, but I rated it excellent as this dedicated team are working in a furnace. A must stop when driving down the Hume Hwy.

First the coffee. Started with a doppio, excellently pulled, lovely rich crema. I’m not the biggest fan of Colombia coffees but this one was worth coming back for. Colombia, El cruce - washed. Then had a latte with my toastie. Choose ‘the founder’ coffee. Very happy with the choice of beans, the brew and the milk was very well textured. The food was nice but very pricey, (I miss Melbourne’s cafés), had a mushroom toastie which was nice but nothing to write home about. $14!!!!! The service. Well it is very busy so don’t expect prompt service. If a bit more than apathy is your cup of tea, give this place a miss. If you’re in a hurry, go elsewhere. The barrista did manage a smile, but the other guy last smiled 20 years ago and he’s only 19. So, for reasonably priced food or quick service with a smile, give it a miss. However, for excellent coffee, and if you’re willing to wait for it, I highly recommend this place.
