Crepes are Tasty!

Went here for breakfast and coffee one morning while staying in Salem, boy was I in for a treat. The place is a little coffeehouse that is big on taste. I had the Chicken Cordon Bleu crepe. This was a very tasty crepe, the flavors mixing well and overall it was a really great meal. I do wish I... read more

I'd never been in that type of place before. You have to order and pay for everything at the counter, wait for your drinks, but then a waitress brings any food you ordered to the table when it's ready. Food was good, not fantastic, but not bad. It was busy and I got the impression of being squeezed in, like... More

The quiche is very good...egg was light...crusty was flaky. We stopped by for lunch...busy place...service line moved fairly quickly. This is a very casual place...great for a cup of coffee and a snack as well.

This place was wonderful! Must-visit! My husband had a savory crepe and I had a sweet one. It was all good! The coffee was good, too, says my husband. The only thing I didn't like is that they had no Dr. Pepper (I'm a Southern gal). But, everything else was wonderful. We would go back in a heartbeat!

At least they can make a good coffee...but my bananas and chocolate crepe was too much!!! Too much cream, too much chocolate...just not my style! Good thing they have relaxing outside seating, I still enjoyed my coffee!

Stopped here during a visit to my daughter at Corban University. Crepes don't normally get me charged up but we have a lot of coffee snobs and foodies in our crew so the French Press got the nod. Everyone loved their food. I had the Spicy Greek and it was a great mix of Mediterranean and spice. I liked it... More

Often very busy. They serve savory and sweet creeps plus some sandwiches. I've been there several times and always enjoyed my meal and the coffee. Both indoor and outdoor seating available. Definitely a comfortable coffee house type of atmosphere.

Place is clean and nice looking. Service is below par. No smiles, no customer acknowledgement. Food is okay, coffee is not what I call good. Won't come here again.
