Tried this restaurant about 2 weeks after it opened. We had the clam chowder, tuna sandwich, and cobb salad. The tuna sandwich was the only item that was good. The clam chowder was pretty bland and it could have easily passed for cream of potato soup. The cobb salad was nothing like the picture on the revolving screen in back... More

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.

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.

We couldn't figure out why a coffee place was also a crepe bar...until we heard they had to find a way to compete with Starbucks. The idea is great. The crepes are nice...a little oily, but traditional. What's great is all the savory fillings. For $7, you get a large crepe with a lot of filling and a side (salad,... More
