Petit Chou Is a New Go-To for Breakfast and Lunch in Cabbagetown

The new restaurant has quickly gained popularity with nearby residents

Open since March at 662 Memorial Drive SE, Petit Chou has quickly become a neighborhood staple for Cabbagetown. The small restaurant — “Petit Chou” translates to “small cabbage” in French; get it? — is serving breakfast and lunch seven days a week, and a loyal clientele is already filling up the dining room and patio during morning and early afternoon hours.

In the kitchen, chef Diana Presson Eller is preparing a menu of European bistro cuisine that has distinct Southern influence. At breakfast, diners can find dishes such as croque monsieur/madam alongside biscuits and gravy. Lunch brings soups, salads, chicken liver mousse toast, and a selection of sandwiches like the “Sarah-witch” (brie, Beech Creek pink lady apples, shaved ham, arugula, and house preserves served on a baguette).

The dining room is airy and flooded with lots of natural light on sunny days. And when the weather’s nice, motorists on Memorial Drive will see a packed patio during peak hours.

Take a look at Petit Chou in action during a recent lunch service via the photos below.
