5 ⭐️ best bread and cakes I ever have eaten.” Yuri, Facebook review 2020.

Our local little piece of heaven.” Linden, Google review 2019.

Yesterday we had a delivery from Le Petit Prince for our lunches at work. This was our first delivery from Le Petit Prince and we were so impressed! The veggie sausage rolls and quiche were amazing but everything surpassed our expectation.” Alice, Facebook review 2020.

Best cake place in Bournemouth and possibly Dorset!! Cakes literally melt in your mouth. Thankfully they have two shops one in Wimborne and in Westbourne!! Bread is also delicious!! Great atmosphere!! Love this place.” Laura, Google review 2018.

As a Westborne resident, this place is undoubtedly the best place for breakfast in Westbourne. Everything they do is delicious, from their coffee and croissants to their salads and sarnies. Super friendly staff and with a lovely atmosphere.” James, Google review of Westbourne branch 2019.

I have always loved the Petit Prince for their fabulous bread/cakes and the best bacon and peanut butter sandwich but this week we sat in the garden and what a treat! So peaceful and beautifully tended. Such a brilliant use of the space surrounded by gorgeous flowers and their amazing veg beds.” Michelle, Tripadvisor review of Wimborne branch 2019.
