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

They are nice basic but tasty French crepes. It is not that easy to go wrong with crepes anyway. Unfortunately they dont have wholemeal crepes which are much better with savoury fillings. if all you make is crepes you should really have a wholemeal option!

We went here for breakfast. The food is amazing. We had the beef crepe which sounded interesting, but was amazing. The staff have great customer service and we will definitely be back next time we're in Santa Monica! Great people watching spot too!

My friend and I had brunch at the Cafe Crepe on September 28, 2014 to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Santa Monica 3rd Street Promenade. I have visited the Promenade many times over the past two decades and have seen it change dramatically over the years. But in all that time I’ve never eaten at the Cafe Crepe so... More

Good, decently priced menu. Great Euro Cafe' setting. The silver lining of this restuarant is the service though. I have recieved excellent service here every time. All of the staff is tentative, friendly, and very prompt.

We came here purely for the nutella crepe. It is delicious but also sickening so I couldn't finish it. It is a busy place with not much seating so we sat outside to eat our brunch which was quite nice except for the drunk gentleman that kept pacing back and forth a few metres from the fence - kind of...

Dull and dreary on the inside with average food to match. Always busy due to its great location but miles off being a good classic American dinner. Shame.
