Excellent Service, kinda close to an authentic French restaurant

The crepes are excellent, and the existence of an entire menu of crepes is quite the thing in Fremont. The service was good, and so were the crepes. They have a decent collection of wines too. I'd recommend at least one visit to check it out.

Ok, you think crepes and you think "stuffy French cuisine". Not at all. Informal setting, but the crepes are lovely. Terrific variety of dining options. We love this place.

Sometimes a sweet treat is exactly what you need for a "pick me up" I ordered a banana and chocolate crepe to satisfy my sweet tooth. It was delicious. The cafe Americano I ordered was disappointing because they used flavored beans, which took away the aroma and taste of the roasted beans. The service was poor. The waitress took off... More

I ordered a crepe which was good, not great. Service was very good, staff very nice, and interior quite pleasant. Will go again as it is an enjoyable place to spend an hour with friends.

Love the crepe selection here, especially the dessert ones. Has a funky international vibe that almost reminds me of a loungy night club. Food is very delicious and an amazing selection for a light meal or decadent dessert.

I wanted to enjoy this place, where I met friends for lunch, but was disappointed in my Scandinavian crepe. Although the crepe itself was good, the filling of pale and tiny canned shrimp was a surprise, as was the watery mushroom sauce that was said to contain dill (and did contain some green bits) but didn't taste of dill at...

We've gone here a few times so far and each time, the crepes are all very good. We typically have the dessert crepes with strawberries, bananas, and/or Nutella. Portions are nice sized and prices are fair. We like the ambience there too. Service has been strong too.

This is a hidden gem in a Fremont shopping center about 1/2 mile from Lake Elizabeth. The decor is well done with Asian themed decor on the wall and a couch and low tables. Crepes are excellent - had the Greek crepe with feta cheese and Greek salad for $6.95. Very nice selection of desert crepes as well with chocolate,... More
