the only thing I can come up with is small whipped cream with a shot of espresso or small coffee. This definition came from my sister that is a chef at a 5star restaurant. she said alot of cafe's in france will have the name 'petit creme' and is a broad term in the meaning. there is a desert and a cheese that also has the name petit creme.

Hi, I know this is a very old thread now, but I'm trying to find out how to make a 'petit creme' as I used to have every day whilst in Paris. I can't find ANY information on the net.
I remember it seemed to be a cup of espresso prepared entirely of very silky milk froth. The silky foam lasted all the way to the bottom of the cup/bowl without separating into liquid milk. Could it really be a coffee made with just silky foam?
