I always order the Classique Crepe. Nutella is good for the soul. I really like that they have two locations now. The macarons are absolutely to die for. Pistachio is my utmost favorite. I really love the decor, and the staff are all so friendly.

Unique aviary atmosphere and marvelous crepes ... lots of other choices as well. The food is delicious -- met the main chef once and he has a remarkable story of success. The bill is delivered in a French book ... so clever. It's such a fun place, and located right by a fabulous farmer's market. Great for a couple, friends,... More

Had brunch here last month and it was lovely. We both had the savory crepes - Is It Morning and The Farmer. They were both quite tasty. We also enjoyed the mimosa and Baby Mary from the cocktail list. It is a neat looking restaurant and the building is beautiful. But it is a little cramped, so seating is at... More

I love the atmosphere here, and the service was great too. Every time I come, I try something different and have never been disappointed. Be sure to leave room for dessert!

We were drawn in by the smoked salmon crepes pictured on their Facebook page. Sadly, that's not a regular menu feature but we did not leave disappointed. Their bloody marys are just right. I recommend the baby mary unless you're in it for a day drunk. I had the Shanghai Sunrise which was sautéed kale, seared tuna, baguette, and sriracha/pea... More

This is a wonderful place to sit in an artsy atmosphere and have a unique meal. I took my granddaughters, ages 8 and 12, for a very early dinner after visiting the Discovery Center. We were seated right next to the kitchen and could see our meal and our crepes being prepared through the glass partition. The food was very... More

We've only been once, for Valentine's, but plan on going back, thier menu is long and eclectic so it's the kind of place I want to visit over and over and keep trying new dishes! The prices are excellent, as well.

I have to preface by saying I've never had their crepes, but I love their french onion soup and salad combo. Great for lunch or to split a bottle of wine with friends. Pomme frites are a must appetizer.
