Worth staying in bed to enjoy

Breakfast is now a whole lot more luxurious with the recent launch of Le Petit Brekkie in the Byron Shire. Changing how we enjoy breakfast, Emma and Kevin, the team behind the business, curate fresh, locally sourced breakfast boxes to be delivered directly to their clients’ doors. With the tagline ‘breakfast in bed, delivered’, Le Petit Brekkie hopes to make the indulgence of a lazy lie-in even more tempting.

The genesis of the business comes from its founders; one a born and bred Parisian with fond memories of enjoying delicious patisserie (pastries) and boulangerie (bread) with their morning coffee, and the other who has a passion for travel and exploring local food cultures. ‘We wanted to create the luxurious 5-star hotel experience of breakfast in bed, but make it available to everyone,’ explains Emma. ‘Some of my happiest memories are from holidays in Europe, where I could enjoy breakfast and a good book without having to change out of my pyjamas!’

‘We were living in Myocum and realised that although there are hundreds of fantastic cafes and restaurants around the Shire, we needed to get into a car and drive to pick up fresh coffee and brekkie. It gave us the idea of creating a service that offers people the option to have a lazy morning and treat themselves,’ says Kevin. 

Although perfect for spoiling a loved one on a special occasion, such as Mother’s Day or a birthday, Kevin and Emma also intend for locals to enjoy Le Petit Brekkie’s thoughtfully curated boxes on those relaxed weekend mornings when staying in bed is all too enticing. 

Of course, the many holidaymakers who visit the area and stay at bed-and-breakfasts will no doubt delight in the convenience and everyday luxury Le Petit Brekkie offers. ‘Given the number of Airbnbs and self-catering accommodation, we saw an opportunity for owners to provide their guests with a hotel-like experience, without the price tag.’

Designed for two and featuring hand-selected delights such as local pastries, bread, free-range eggs, fruit, granola, and more, there are three boxes to choose from with the option of adding a bunch of fresh flowers and a newspaper. The duo hopes that as demand grows, there will be opportunities to partner with more local businesses to provide an even wider array of artisanal and ethically sourced products.
