I've been to this place twice in the last 6 months and both times found that the woman who works the counter and I assume is the owner is less than hospitable. She doesn't seem interested in fully answering questions about the crepes or the baked goods. Both times I was there she was busy and my questions seemed to... More

Perfect little spot to grab coffee, tea and breakfast. Sadly, we didn't have any food but the crepes looked amazing. The people eating looked like they enjoyed every bite. If it's warm enough sitting outside is a joy. The gal who owns the place is a sweetheart and does a great job of cooking and being friendly with the customers.... More

I recently read an article about a restaurant in Depoe Bay that served crepes.Curiosity got the best of me and while looking for a late lunch searched out C'est La Vie. It's somewhat hard to find and I think they like it that way. It's north on 101 past the bustle of downtown Depoe Bay and right before Gleneden Beach.... More

Crêpes both savory and sweet, house baked scones with dried cherries, excellent coffee, sweet round cafe tables and wrought iron chairs both inside and out, a five minute walk from our houses -- just what we wanted!

Yummy!!!! The Croquette Madame was amazing!!! The rest of our party had crepes and if they could have licked their plates they would have. Definitely worth a repeat visit this trip

A wonderful neighborhood coffee shop with a French atmosphere. The coffee, and food are awesome. The owner, who is the cook and server is a great person. Totally focuses on Customer Delight. Local artists display many of the works of art (for sale) in the shop. A must coffee shop to visit whenever in the area.

Thought I would check this place out for a light lunch . When you first walk in, it looks just like a little coffee shop. But they have an excellent choice of both sweet and savory crepes for breakfast or lunch. I had a savory crêpe with Swiss cheese roasted red peppers zucchini and mushrooms, and a light roasted red...

My wife and I were looking of a place to have lunch. Initially we wanted to go to a BBQ place down the road, but they were closed. We "settled" on coming here. We are now happy the other place was closed. C'est La Vie is a family affair and people working there enjoy each other as much as they... More
