Always soooooo good!

I have to make a special trip for brunch every time I'm in Southern California. Love the vegetarian chorizo omelet, all the different croissants, kouign amann, ... Tastes better than in Paris...? Makes me want to go back again just typing this :)

The Crema Cafe is a convenient and casual spot to grab a quick bite to eat in the middle of the day. Their food is both delicious and inexpensive. They have indoor and outdoor seating just a few blocks from the water right on Main Street.

There's a reason that The Crema Cafe is always crowded on weekends. The food is amazing. The service is friendly and efficient.

Very nice little cafe shop. Good sandwiches, salads, and omelets. There is indoor and outdoor seating. Indoor can get a little crowded, so if it is a nice day, go ahead and sit outside. They even have the outdoor heaters if it gets a little cold (although unfortunately one was not working at the time I was there). Prices are... More

Thai is a great place for fresh croissants and chocolate croissants. They bake them just next door. Get a good coffee of tea to go along with it and take a seat one the terrace.

The food at Crema Cafe is outstanding. In my experience it is uncommon for a high quality bakery to also excel at dining options but Crema Cafe impresses me on both levels. Their sandwiches, salads, and crepes, in particular, were fresh, tasty, and delicious.

I like that you can design your own crepe. I ordered Spinach, Egg White, Mushrooms and Goat cheese. It was delicious. They also have some very good sweet apple sausage. Lunch favorite is the Veggie Burger...best I have ever had. Try to go on a week day because the wait on the weekends is very looong.
