Really wonderful crepes and salads in a relaxing and pleasant atmosphere. Good wine, terrific service. Great for a celebratory lunch - or any occasion, really. Both the savory and the sweet crepes were perfection! Excellent value.

11/17/2016, decided to go here day after our anniversary. I enjoy this area of Palo Alto, for the walking and people watching. Parking not much of a problem, as it was after 1100 hrs, on a Thursday. There is also parking behind City Hall, a...More
