Café Petit Gâteau

The best urban areas usually include a hint of foreign flavor, a shop or restaurant which blends the best of its locale with notes of distant culture. Café Petit Gâteau, a small French-inspired coffee and cake shop in downtown Sudbury, is a perfect example.

Scandinavian design fused with Japanese attention to detail.

Servicing the demands of Sudbury's increasingly refined palate, this beautiful shop located in an historic flatiron building is where knowing Sudburians flock for their fresh espresso, coffee, tea and an assortment of flavorful treats which range from perfectly textured cookies to decadent fluffy cakes. Spicing up the French inspiration with a carefully cultivated space inhabited by elements of Scandinavian design and Japanese attention to detail, and finished with custom cabinetry and furniture from Mjölk, the best of several worlds meet to create a memorable fusion of form and flavor.

We first met Derek and Yoshi, owners of Café Petit Gâteau, on an inhospitably cold winter morning as they were moving into the building. As the conversation continued in their warm and inviting space, we suggested sitting down formally to discuss the way Bureau's marketing and design expertise could ensure the business' success. Our suggestions perfectly attuned to their vision, we quickly formed a partnership.

Inspired by vintage Europe.

Modern with touches of classic Paris, contemporary without discarding the best elements of vintage Europe, we provided a logotype sourced from old signage and customized to meet their needs. This allowed CPG to have immediate purchase with their ideal clientele: those with a taste for coffee and treats yet demand more than a nationally franchised bakery or corner store can deliver.
