Tiny and Terrific

This tiny and very casual cafe was fantastic. Really delicious. Nice wine and the French Onion Soup, Croque Madame, and Pear Crepe were truly outstanding. I understand why the soup has been recognized as the best in NYC. Highly recommend. Nice service. And terrific value. Note it is cash... read more

Savory and sweet crepes cooked to perfection. Lots of other wonderful French dishes, too. I used to LOVE the croque monsieur, but I no longer eat meat so I stick to the crepes. The poached pear crepe is light, sweet and simply delicious. Super small place, but cute and with the trip.

We went here for brunch prior to going to the Museum of the Moving image and they had very good crepes, iced tea and lemonade. I have to say they were quick and I liked the breeze blowing on me. We would have sat outside, but it was raining on and off, so didn't want to get wet. I will... More

I had the French Onion soup and it was probably the best I have EVER had in my life. And I look for/ eat it a lot. My friend had the skewered brioche French toast and it was to die for. Seriously. I'm not a huge sweets person for brunch, but I finished off his plate after I ate my... More

The food is very well prepared with quite a bit of variety. I was dining with vegetarians and there was something for everyone. The place is very small (cozy), so you may have to wait, but it is worth it.The chef actually solicited specific comments, rather than the generic "how was everything"

This is an excellent little place for brunch and dinner in Astoria. I live three blocks away and my wife and I have been here maybe 5 times with excellent experiences each time. It seats about 15 people in a tiny little dining area that is high on charm but low on frills. My wife and I love their crepes,... More

A classic French bistro, from the buckwheat crepe options--both savory and sweet--to the mussels, to the croque monsieur ou madame. The service was, however, much friendlier than in any French restaurant I've experienced. All the food was delicious, but the real standout was the dessert crepe with lemon, butter, and fruit compote. It was so good it vanished in no... More

OH MAN... what would I do without you in my life!! First off, I absolutely LOVE the male waiter that works there- his recommendations are wickedly good and he's very entertaining/nice. They have specials everyday and I love the chicken/sausage wrapped in a Phillo dough. (Foodgasm) The breads are freshly made by the chef daily. French onion soup is exactly... More

My buddy who traveled to Paris often for business, asked me if I wanted to have lunch at this crepe restaurant. I had the buckwheat crepe with aged goat cheese, and he had the same with swiss and mushrooms. We enjoyed the food and found the cuisine quite lovely , but the young girl who served us just had no...
