Poetry would be comprised entirely of haikus and sonnets dedicated to cakes and pastries if poets didn't devour their idyllic subjects before having a chance to write. Today's Groupon says what meter and rhythm cannot: for $5, you get $10 worth of tarts, pastries, and other fare at La Petite France. Parisian couple Alexandra and Romeo Litor recently opened a second location in the West Hartford Center after years of success at the original Stafford Springs location. Patrons of either location can fill their mouth-suitcase with a classic éclair or a sandwich served on a buttery baguette while relaxing in the mural-adorned, ghost-free cafe. A cup of fair trade, organically roasted coffee pairs nicely with a madeleine, a tiny, dense cake packed with butter and lemon flavor. La Petite France also offers pastries and tarts, including the signature choco poire tart (chocolate, almonds, and pears) and la pompadour, a puff-pastry knot stuffed with raspberry and apple. See the website for a complete list of breads, croissants, sandwiches, and desserts or the Facebook page for a new best friend.

La Petite France

Alexandra and Romeo fell in love in France over cups of flour and sugar as Romeo completed his professional boulanger and patissier training. Today, the couple recreates quintessential French flavors in their West Hartford bakery-café, where the menu kicks off with breakfasts of pain au chocolat and almond croissants. For lunch, chefs build sandwiches such as Le Brie with cheese and butter, and the Eiffel, whose roasted chicken breast, carrots, and cucumber stands 324 meters tall. Desserts such as macarons and chocolate-hazelnut mousse cake pair with a cappuccino or café au lait to round out each meal.

La Petite France also rolls out its portable crepe cart to special events throughout the area, where French-speaking chefs (upon request) whip up sweet or savory crepes for parties of 20 or more.
