We ended up here unexpectedly after giving up on waiting in line at all the other trendy places and were not disappointed! They make very tasty crepes as well as your standard breakfast choices. The prices are reasonable as well. I'd definitely go back.

Reasonable prices for excellent cooked to order food, including crepes, make this a great breakfast place in San Francisco. Servers were friendly and the location is great, being near both Chinatown and Union Square.
