This cafe is tucked in a nursery called Blooming Colors. Part of the restarant houses a farmers market of locally grown vegetables, cheeses and jams. The cafe is so charming and the deserts fantastic. We were in Auburn for a swim meet and we wanted something sweet after dinner, we found the Crepe Myrtle Cafe and our sweet tooth was satisfied. We split a lemon bar on the way back to the hotel, it was decadent. We also took a slice of carrot cake and a chocolate toffee desert both were insanely good. When we left on Sunday we stopped by and got a slice of key lime pie and a crepe stuffed with strawberries, bananas and nutella both were as delicious as the deserts on Saturday. What a special place - you've got to check it out!!!!

Atmosphere is on point

Food was average for the price, but the service was excellent and the atmosphere even better. Literally the most unique restaurant I've ever visited. You have to check it out!

We had been looking for this establishment because it's listed in a recent article as one of 10 "must try" places to eat in Auburn. Somehow we missed it on the first pass. We had actually given up on eating here but were elated to find geocache and crepe paradise co-located. The place is extremely charming and the staff was... More

Very very expensive and not worst to eat here. The crepe at the international pan cake near by is much much better. Parking... More

This is a ritzy cupcake place with all different flavors and etc. I just want one that have plain simple cupcakes. Got 6 cupcakes and they were good, but not awesome. Banana, cherry or something velvet and choclote. Nothing special. Quick service, friendly

Love the location and ambiance! My husband brought me here for Sunday breakfast - we arrived right when they opened (at 8 AM) and were glad we did; it got busy very fast! The cafe is located in the back of a farmer's market/store which is at the back of a lovely nursery. We were a little confused at first... More

The service was lovely, and the setting is beautiful. The green eggs and ham crepe was absolutely delicious. 10/10 would recommend.

We will definitely be back! Loved the mocha blend coffee and apple crepes. Service was reasonably fast and very friendly on a busy Auburn Parent's weekend.

Although the wait was long, the food was delicious! Whether crepes or paninis, our meal was very tasty! Our only recommendation is that an employee needs to perform crowd control for the awful
