Absolutely love everything about this restaurant! This includes the concept of all things "crepe", whether savory or sweet, the atmosphere, the friendly and informative customer service and very responsive wait staff.

What a great locally owned place. There menu has a wide variety including some vegetarian options. Their coffee was phenomenal. Had enough room for large group seating. Really enjoyed the atmosphere and experience.

Huge tasty stuffed crepes with breakfast potatos for Sunday Brunch left us very satisfied at a more than reasonable price. Beautiful sunny day so enjoyed eating outside on their shaded sidewalk section. Their high TA ranking is well deserved. Highly recommended.

Best Bloody Mary on the island! It was a complete meal in a glass. The food was also delicious. Very Fresh!

Based on a cab driver's suggestion, my wife and I ate here. Their menu was nothing special. The place was a clean restaurant, and the server was very nice. But they could be better with their menu. We ended up ordering two sandwiches, which were...More

After a great night on the island we woke up famished and ready to eat. The portion sizes were big and the service was good. The only reason for 4 stars is that I had to request a refill... Always lose a star with me...More
