About Us

Our passion for fine foods and uncompromising stance on quality mean that when you order from La Petite Maison, you can trust you will be receiving outstanding and unique gourmet foods curated with the exacting tastes of our customers in mind.

We take pride in two things above all others: offering only the finest gourmet foods and outstanding customer service. Our obsession for fine foods is topped only by our desire to make your La Petite Maison shopping experience the best it can possibly be. We believe that the only acceptable outcome is a customer who is 100% satisfied with us and our products, and hope you agree!

Our chef, owner, and founder is Maxwell Erlebacher, a teenager in North Chevy Chase bound for Montgomery Blair High School in the fall. Max has a passion for cooking and has put that into this French-inspired bakery. He also studies photography, which he applies to his business through his original photography of his menu items.

Today, La Petite Maison features a variety of different desserts ranging from gluten free cakes, to delicate French Pastries, to fresh fruit tarts. Many are custom developed and cannot be found anywhere else.

As we celebrate our first year of business, we offer our sincere and heart-felt thanks for being part of the La Petite Maison family. Here’s hoping you spend your days surrounded by friends and family, and may the seasons find you happy, health, and most of all, well fed.
