Stopped here for a quick breakfast break. Lee has managed to retain the majority of its fantastic historic buildings that make up its "downtown" area. It is tempting to stop to look at the buildings alone, and if you do, the Starving Artist is a good place to experience the people and happenings first hand. First, the breakfast sandwich I... More

The staff was very accomodating. We were able to design our own crepe fillings and toppings! The venue was cute!

Had some vegan choices and they were great! I read some reviews saying the prices were high but it's worth it when it's high quality food you are getting. We were very happy. Wish you had one near us in pittsfield so we could go more often :)

Stopped in for lunch while traveling on I-90. They had many organic crepe sandwiches. Sandwiches were about $8 each -- so not much more than non-organic places. They had many other items including different types of coffees, smoothies, and teas. I had never had a crepe sandwich before so I chose the more simplistic on the menu. They had about... More

Loved the crepes here. It's an open area can order at the counter. Stopped in one Sunday late morning on my way to Pittsfield. What a surprise to find such a wonderful place to have a coffee and a crepe. The crepe was wonderful, tasty and filling. Can't wait to try it again.

This restaurant has some odd opening hours (it's closed a lot). If you are lucky enough to stop by when it's open...try some of their original and unique salads and crepes. They have sweet and savory selections for breakfast and lunch. Don't expect great service...it's not that kind of place. Just try to enjoy the food and the gallery.

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.
