Great Food and Service

We had breakfast one morning at Crema Cafe and it was delicious. I strongly recommend their red chili glazed bacon with egg, tomato and cheddar on a croissant. The red chili glazed bacon is a specialty of theirs and wonderful. There is no real heat to the bacon, but the smokey red chili flavor... read more

Went with friends for lunch. Menu was very odd, inside seating exceedingly uncomfortable, food unimaginative, small portions, cheap ingredients, zero presentation. Eat somewhere else.

The coffee and pastries are good here! We ordered the chilaquiles to share and were a little disappointed with them. The place has a really nice atmosphere and a pretty outside sitting area to have your breakfast.

Place had just a few patrons when I arrived this morning... When I walked in, the staff took their time seating me, assumed I wanted an indoor table until I asked for a place on patio....food was good....not great.

Stopped in to this unique coffee shop and we are so glad we did. We had the oatmeal fresh baked scone and the cheese fruit plate which was outstanding. The coffee is good as well. Try it you won't be disappointed.

We dined outside in a very cozy enclosed patio area. Our server was excellent and the food (we ate breakfast) was very, very good. Highly recommend this place. Open at 7:00am on Saturday morning.

I do not as a habit write bad reviews, not the least in my home town. I have been to Crema many times and the food is great. The service has never matched the food and today was an all-time low. We were seated in the courtyard in the shade and promptly offered drinks. As we waited for them, two... More

I love Crema's breakfast foods and coffee. Everything on the plate is ALWAYS quality-fresh. Breakfast is offered even during lunchtime...lucky me! Comfortable environment both inside their restaurant and spacious outdoor patio. I even love the 'gentler' music coming through their speakers. It doesn't blast you out of your body while you're enjoying your food. One day I will try their... More

My family and I were staying at the Tavern Hotel (which includes dining vouchers for Crema Cafe or the Red Rooster Cafe) but our glitch was that we had to be on the road for kayaking by 7:15 a.m. Since only Crema opens at 7 a.m., I called the day before to place our order, crossing our fingers that they...
