I've eaten here three times on two visits to Salem. Sweet or savory, you can't miss! Everything is so yummy! What a charming place and definitely the best crepes I've had anywhere in the US!

Great coffee and superb environment for a visit or meeting. We thoroughly enjoyed their finely tuned blend and brewed coffee and the pastries are amazing. Some great gluten free choices too!

I'm no coffee drinker, so luckily there is a LOT more to this place than just ground beans. They have a number of delicious teas, Italian sodas including my favorite, sugar-free raspberry! And their crepes are to die for!!!! I tried the Chicken Cordon Bleu yesterday and wow!!! I would say it's the best place to have crepes in the... More

Their smoked salmon crepe with cream cheese is sooo good. We have never had anything there we didn't truly enjoy. I'm not from Salem but try to stop here when in town. Have even taken a friend there after picking her up from the Portland airport.

The food was good; their signature crepes were reasonably priced for breakfast and the coffee had plenty of flavor and body, but the ordering of the food and seating arrangements were poorly planned out. The menu is hung high on the wall behind the counter, so you can only see it when you're the first in line.

Had the California club crepe with a latte. the only complaint was the bacon was a little too greasy for me but I've been dieting recently and haven't had bacon in a long time. the crepe was perfectly cooked and my latte was very tasty

It is a very nice spot with great coffee and crepe. It can be a little crowded on the weekends, so the service will be a bit slow (not terrible). The food is very tasty, but not good if you watch the calories! Very rich.

Intrigued by the name and by favorable reviews by other TripAdvisor reviewers, I took my wife to this independently owned coffee shop on a busy street slightly south of downtown Salem. The building is quite attractive, as is the French decor inside. The coffee, in my opinion, was more tasty than some of the chains, Starbucks, Dutch Bros., Bentley's, etc.... More
