What can I say? If you've been to Hawaii, then you've most likely experienced their Shave Ice. Right next door to the Hukilau restaurant is this place. While their crepes are delicious, I had to comment on their excellent Shave Ice. Just wish this had ice cream in the middle, like you can get on the islands. Wish either Banana... More

My family and a few friends went out for sushi down the street and stumbled upon this place. They only accept cash so we hit up the Union Bank ATM across the street but the crepes were quite good. Very rich. Exactly what you'd expect given the descriptions and prices. They didn't skimp. They earned a review from me because... More

It was a good stopping spot on a hot summer's day. The choices of flavors was amazing for the shaved ice.

We loved Banana Crepe! We just had eaten lunch at a local Japanese restaurant down the street called Minato when we came across Banana Crepe. We ordered the banana/strawberry and cookies and cream crepes, which both were to die for! The crepes are huge and you definitely get your money’s worth. Not only do they serve crepes, but also Hawaiian... More

This is most certainly one of the most popular places in San Jose. Lunch time had so much rush, you are lucky to find a place without prior booking.

If you have a sweet tooth and need dessert after stuffing yourself at one of the fine restaurants in Japan Town, this is the place to go!

We just had dinner at a local Sushi place, but still had one of those corners to fill, and saw this place. I got the Banana double Choco. It just doesn't get much better than this. It was a hot day, and it was just the best. While devouring this dessert, I noticed they also had Shave Ice (notice no... More

The crepe with bananas ,strawberry and Nutella is what i chose. The young boy who made it with so much care and that added a lot to the taste I must agree.

The service was quick & efficient. The crepes are big & the dough is delicious. Worth a stop for a quick crepe for breakfast.

We've always come here for the shave ice and dessert crepes after dinner; but recently we've starting coming for breakfast on the weekends (egg & sausage crepes). The owner loves coffee and roasts his own beans in small batches (you can see the roaster as you walk into the restaurant). While there is a more popular coffee shop down the... More
