Charming Crepes

Ate here on previous trip to U.S. in June 2015. Started the morning at Cafe Crepe for breakfast. A short walk from Ocean View Hotel in The Promenade, main shopping street of Santa Monica. Had a healthy breakfast - a bowl of fresh strawberries and bananas with a side of toast. Must have been a... read more

I ordered the strawberry with dark chocolate crepe with a scope of vanilla ice cream, amazing! My daughter ordered a sugar and lemon crepe. I am not sure which was better- get both of them!

My wife and I stopped here for a late lunch with our in-laws. All of us got items from the savoury crepe menu and were extremely happy with out selections. I got the West Coast which I highly recommend. In-laws are vegetarian if you are trying to find a place that is friendly to that dietary restriction.

I went to get food for take out and I chose this French Toast Crepe which sounded so good for $13. Anyways I watched the guy create my marvelous food but to my surprise he wrapped it in a wax paper and a paper towel and handed it to me. Take note it's 40 degrees outside and I have to... More

Everytime I come to Santa Monica this is one of my "must eat at" places. The crepes are superb, the staff always responsive, and service is fast. I always get take out here for my plane ride home. Tres Bon!

My wife and I stopped in for breakfast. Crepes and other items were all great. Wife loved the snowman design in the cream in her latte. We tried several places for breakfast while visiting Santa Monica and this was my favorite.

We had breakfast here because it was overcast we sat inside that wS dreary. Menu uninspired and server was pleasant enough. First disappointment was no wifi. I ordered strawberry and banana fruit bowl and that was what came very plain no yoghurt creme frais. No free coffee refills either. My advice breakfast somewhere else

The crepes are amazing! Went in for sweet crepes and left with a happy tummy! Many varieties, even non-sweet crepes. So fresh and served quickly. The hot chocolates were fantastic, we also had a cafe mocha that was very well done! Friendly service as well. What a great place to sit outside and people watch while you eat delicious food!

Staying in Santa Monica

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.
