Nice quick stop

The omelet was average. The service was outstanding even with a very crowded restaurant. My wife loved her crepe. She said it was as good as the one she had in France and better than the one she had in New York. Her latte was delicious and artistic. The restaurant was a little noisy but no more... read more

I loved this place! It's hard to miss while shopping in the streets of Santa Monica. I loved the interior here and the food even more. I'm a sucker for crepes, especially the ones with chocolate and strawberries. However, the savior ones are delicious too. Everything is reasonably priced and tastes great. Definitely recommend this place!

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.

Neighborhood Profile
Santa Monica
Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a balance as a tourist destination and as an area with a thriving local culture. On the beach, bikers, roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles weather. The solar-powered Ferris wheel at the Santa Monica pier spins high above the water, while park revelers scream with delight riding the roller coaster. Inland from the beach, Third Street Promenade bustles with shoppers and street performers, where every block seems to have a musical or acrobatic act drawing crowds giving Santa Monica both the feeling of a laid-back beach town and a major commercial hub.
