Wonderful brekkie

Quality, consistent, from scratch breakfasts. Eggs, crepes, breakfast sandwiches, pancakes. You name it and they do it well and get it to you warm.

Their bakery is exactly what this area needed. Good quality artisanal breakfast scrumptiousness. Breads - wonderful. Brioches - to die for. All the other sweet(and savory) treats, YES. Have a perfect, hearty breakfast here, they have some of the best omlettes you'll have anywhere, plus really good coffee.

From eggs to sandwiches and everything in between. All the food is fresh, the bakery is wonderful, healthy and delicious. Service is great but get there early on weekends. May have to wait for 45 minutes but you can browse in the bakery to work up an appetite. Indoor and outdoor seating. Many people bring their pets and families.

Found them with yelp, they were just as great as all the reviews say. And the bakery looked and smelled amazing! Looking forward to trying one more entree before we head back to Idaho.

I've eaten at Crema Cafe but I am always drawn into their to-go shop next door if only to gaze at the pastries and the fabulous bread. I've tried a variety but on this last visit they had their versions of the cronut, those taste delights made with croissant dough but shaped and cooked like a doughnut. It was mouth... More

Nice outdoor, relaxed seating. Good coffee and chai, delicious omelet and breakfast crepe. Looked crowded but seating on the side was nice and quiet.

Our family comes here every time we visit so cal, 2-4 times a year from Chicago. We have great food and some pastries with us. My favorite is the pecan pie. It is the best I have ever had.

Got my first banana pancakes ever here. They were stupendous. Coffee was excellent. Free when you arrive. The wait to sit wasn't too bad. Staff was friendly. So many options for good food. Can't wait to go back.

Lovely outside eating area, friendly service, super food (Caprese omelette, lox bagel), potatoes (wonderful, wonderful), coffee and latte. Pastries to go. Tough to beat on an outstanding California morning!

The foods here can be really special or simply average, as we gave it two chances to impress our taste buds. Nicely seasoned and garnished, the breakfast fare was nearly worth the price. Bakery items are not special, but the cashier certainly was....Very gracious and nice to look at. Week days, there is no table service, it's take out. La... More
