I went on a busy Saturday afternoon in between running errands. After ordering a crepe which wasn't on the menu which I always did (dark chocolate and strawberries), I was informed that I would have to wait 30 minutes, which I agreed to. After waiting...More

On a windy Saturday, I surprised my teen daughters with a trip to this delectable spot in Westboro. We had never been before and the menu on the website was very appealing. It's a very tiny, quaint spot. Big leather chairs in the front window...More
