We had dinner here and didn't have long before we had to leave. I had not heard of this place before but it seemed very popular with people waiting for a table. We didn't have to wait long and were served quickly. Good size meals and reasonably priced. Also good for people watching and in a good location.

The Petit Breakfast is the best Mon-Thurs breakfast value in Santa Monica. Stopped here twice and our waitresses on both days were friendly and attentive and the food was delicious. Order a side of hash browns you won't be disappointed. We ate inside as the outdoor seating looked cramped.

This was a nice spot for a quick breakfast. I have been to France and tried a variety of crepes while there. This place just doesn't compare. It was very basic and good but just not great. I will say however the Parisian hot dog was pretty damn good and a great value for $6.00. The breakfast time on a... More

Ah, we went out of our way to go to this place as it was rated so high. It was OK--Service was GREAT! Very friendly, they got us in right away and everyone was happy and friendly. But the food was not memorable and the presentation was flat all the way around. I ordered the Southwestern Crepe and my partner... More

I thought the food was so good that I made sure to stop here a second time during my trip to California. The first time, time I had a sweet crepe, and the second time, a savoury crepe. Both were yummy. We were served pretty quickly. The staff seemed pleasant. The prices are decent!

This review is only based on our experience with the crepes served at this restaurants. We had crepe entrees as well as crepe desserts. The service was not very good. We had to ask twice for the dessert menu, twice for a water refill, and twice again for the final check! The restaurant was not even busy. The entrees were... More

I stopped off here for breakfast whilst visiting Santa Monica. I had the petit breakfast ( two eggs and bacon with toast) and a cappuccino. The coffee was great and the whole breakfast came to $17 for two. Great value, and great food . It is worth while you considering this cafe for breakfast.

On the Third Street Promenade, Cafe Crepe is the perfect location to sit back and admire the relaxed and beachy atmosphere around you. Their crepes are always fresh and tasty, and their coffees have been my favourite since visiting the states. Staff are very attentive and quick. Definitely recommended for anyone staying around the area.

Went to look at the menu out front. They were very busy, Sunday morning. In the time it took to glance at the menu the line grew by 7. We were seated in less than 10 minutes. This quant little cafe is small by its competitors standards. They more than make up for space by functioning as a very strong... More
