Where it all started

Established in early 2016 by the visionary trio of Damien, Francoise, and Sebastien, Bon Ap' Petit Bistro draws its inspiration from the timeless allure of French classics that celebrate the artistry and heritage of gastronomy.


More than a mere eatery, Bon Ap' seamlessly combines the sophistication of a traditional French café with the welcoming charm of a local hangout. Our space is bathed in natural light, offering a cosy ambiance perfect for savouring a morning croissant, indulging in a leisurely lunch, or enjoying a delightful dinner. 


We're also your go-to spot for a late-night digestif. At Bon Ap', we're dedicated to the pursuit of culinary excellence, and our commitment to the pleasure of good food is unwavering. Nestled within a heritage building on Brunswick Street, we keep our doors open from sunrise to candlelight, offering an enticing selection of French wines and the freshest locally-sourced meats and seasonal produce. 


Bon Ap' Petit Bistro is where the essence of French cuisine meets an inviting neighbourhood atmosphere, creating an experience that's as delightful as it is memorable.
