This is a lively and interesting place to eat in Lee. The food is well-prepared and there is a good range of options on the menu. There is a lot to look at in the restaurant and local people clearly enjoy eating and meeting here. I especially enjoyed the French onion soup! The prices were very reasonable. A great place... More

Word of mouth must be all it takes. Crepes that The Netherlands would gratefully serve. We loved the food here. My fourth visit. Warm, savoy. & easy to ear on the go. Great coffee & teas. We'll b back. Maybe tomorrow for breakfast! Did I mention local ingredients & an art gallery. Beautiful food is a beautiful setting.

We were on our way to the Cape and needed some breakfast. I of course used my TripAdvisor to tell me what was near me as we drove and we saw this and immediately pulled off the highway. The little strip that this is in is so adorable. The restaurant itself is unassuming and sells organic and gluten free items.... More

The coffee is strong and hot, the crepes are out of this world! My favorite is Green Eggs and Ham but that could very well be because of the name. All the crepes are cooked to order so service can get a little slow, but it's worth the wait. The staff is pleasant and wecloming, the atmosphere is very casual;... More

I love a good crepe; unfortunately these were not. The crepes themselves were heavy and surprisingly oily. The meat filling was tough and flavorless. The staff ignored our requests to not include specific ingredients. Neither my sister nor I finished 1/3 of our crepes and we skipped having dessert here all together. The artsy atmosphere would have worked had the... More

Timothy's was closed on Sunday, so we opted for the Starving Artist Cafe and Creperie. While the food is good, the layout of the place is disastrous, with the counter right next to the entrance. This means that patrons queueing to order are always bumping into those wanting to exit, and vice versa. Also, I ordered a crepe with steak,... More

We had the French onion soup, which was good, but needed more spice. I had the turkey Ruben on sour dough. Good, but my sister got a turkey sandwich with tons of fresh greens on flax bread, I was green with envy that I didn't order that. Oh well, just an opportunity to make a return visit. A fun little...

We were very excited to try this place and made sure we came here before it closed at 4:00pm. My sister and I ordered the steak crepe with the intention of having a dessert crepe when we were done. You order your crepe at the counter and then they bring your order to your table. Very cute, clean place with... More
