Le Petit Jardin Cafè

Le Petit Jardin Café

Our doors opened in 1976 at the historic Kentucky Military Institute Building.

Residents and visitors alike have raved about Le Petit Jardin’s distinctive European style fare and unique bistro atmosphere.

After fourteen years of growth and success; owner and operator, Jim Stape faced a new dilemma.  Le Petit Jardin had outgrown its space.  With a vision and plan to maintain the café’s original concept and authentic recipes, Jim relocated the café to its current home at the Galleria on Venice Avenue in 2010.  His design incorporates the old world feel with modern amenities that makes Le Petit Jardin one of Venice’s most unique and pleasurable dining experiences.

We welcome you to relax and allow our staff to make this a most enjoyable dining experience.

Bon Appetit!
