This place is a joke. The prices are ridiculously expensive for what you get. The service was awful and the food took over 45 minutes from when we ordered. The food itself was not good. I can get a better quality breakfast at Perkins for...More

My husband and I have visited this restaurant a couple times this fall and winter. I've always loved crepes so we had to check it out since finding crepes on a menu are few and far between. We tried the all meat omlette and of...More

OPH is in our regular restaurant rotation because they do an awesome job with gluten-free needs. Our daughter has eaten there multiple times and had no reactions. OJ is fresh squeezed, whipped cream for crepes is homemade, the hot chocolate is to die for, and...More
