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 Le Petit Jardin had outgrown its original space. With a vision and plan to maintain the café’s original concept and authentic recipes, we relocated the café, to its current home at the Galleria on Venice Avenue in 2010. The design incorporates the old world feel with modern amenities that makes Le Petit Jardin one of Venice's most unique and pleasurable dining experiences.
