A taste of France in Samoa: Le Petit Café

By Vatapuia Maiava 14 March 2016, 12:00AM

Located near the well known Mailelani Samoa Skincare and Natural Beauty products factory at Papauta is a recently opened small homey café that promises to give you a taste of France in Samoa.

Le Petit Café offers French style breakfast served with a smile by a small team of beautiful young ladies whose bubbly attitude will leave customers in a good mood for the rest of the day.

The café which was officially opened on Friday is operated by Tailani Salanoa with family and friends being her pillars of support.

Le Petit is unique in a way that they are strict with serving only French style breakfast (not the traditional toast and eggs).

Motivated by her parent’s wishes to have a café along with their factory, Tailani used her interest in cooking and baking to fulfill both her and her parent’s dreams.

The French theme was picked by Tailani because of her Swish side and the style of the dishes is what she’s comfortable with.

The café specializes in waffles and crepes which are both pleasing to the eyes as well as mouth watering perfection to the taste. They also have a variety of French style homemade breads which you won’t find anywhere else in Samoa along with French style Mueslis with your choice of toppings.

Dish prices range from $8tala -$20tala with their most popular choice being the Brussels’ waffle.

Armed with equipment from La Bretagne Northern France the staff who received training by an experienced barista from New Zealand will always put their customer first.

The Café has plans to introduce lunch to their menu once they get things settled with a ‘round the world’ theme where they will serve Mediterranean, Moroccan, Northern African food etc. but right now the focus is only on breakfast.

“If you have a dream go for it, even if it seems hard you will make it if you have determination” A message from the Le Petit team

So come on down and let the Le Petit team take you to France for the morning.
