Oh my! The crepes are so delicious. Nice decor. Good service. We had savory crepes for dinner and a cinnamon sugar crepe for dessert. Out of this world! Easily the best place to eat on the island for dinner!

We had coffee and crepes outside and they were great! It’s a quaint spot with a fun vibe! There was live music when we were there and the singer was great! We ordered the S’mores crepe and Berry crepe, both were delicious!

I don't know if they have gluten free but I'm sure they would be happy to answer your questions. They do have a FB page and a website that includes the menu.
