Nestled into the charming Ohio City neighborhood in Cleveland is a local love letter to Paris: It’s called Le Petit Triangle Café. Operated by Tom and Joy Harlor, who previously owned Take-A-Bite gourmet deli in Tremont, Le Petit aims to be a neighborhood staple: indeed, its website describes the café as an “extension of [guests’] living room.”
Modelled on a traditional Parisian café, Le Petit serves up food and drinks from brunch to dinner, seamlessly transitioning from a coffee-and-croissant haunt to a chill wine bar as the day wears on.
Brunch highlights include the classic escargots and a trio of croque sandwiches. From the classic Croque Monsieur with ham, comte, and béchamel to the Croque Norvegien with smoked salmon, spinach, and béchamel, these breakfast delicacies will evoke a French vacation.
For a light lunch, try a charcuterie or mezze board, a quiche, or a savory crepe. The menu also includes heartier options like Boeuf Bourguignon, cassoulet, and a fish stew of scallops, shrimp, mussels, and salmon that’s native to the Provencal region of France.
If you’re looking to pay a visit, check it out soon! Le Petit will be closed temporarily starting on Saturday, August 28 at 3pm. They’ll reopen on Wednesday, September 8.
Find it at 1881 Fulton Rd, Cleveland, OH 44113.
