Nice little cafe in downtown Knoxville. Went in for dinner after work one night for a quiet place to read and people watch- perfect! Admittedly it seemed like more of a breakfast/lunch spot, but the food was on point. Had a veggie deluxe crepe with smoked salmon, simple ingredients but prepared with care. Great balance of flavors & textures.

I just love the crepes, especially the buckwheat. I like it best when I bring a friend so one of us picks a dessert crepe and the other a savory one and we share. The portions are generous. You have a choice of inside or outside tables. Outside you can eat with your dog. Plastic recycling available nest to trash.... More

We arrived, placed our orders and sat at a sidewalk table with assigned order number. Pleasant group talk for the first thirty minute segment of waiting for five crepes. Next thirty minute segment passed more slowly as we occasionally wondered why the length of time. We're all gourmet cooks, all prepare crepes and were startled at that delay. The next... More

We are sorry you had an exceptionally long wait for your food. In 6 years we have never had anyone wait over an hour. It was a unique, triple special event night downtown with a new chef and we messed up. Please come in and ask for an owner an we will make it up to you. More

This is my wife's absolute favorite place. I like it,too. The food is very good. It's great if you can catch it when they are having weekend sidewalk musical entertainment.

I liked it, but my husband thought his crepe was so-so. Since this was my first crepe, I had nothing to compare it to.

The crepes were cooked fresh to order and my daughter and I absolutely loved them! The restaurant was small but charming, as I expect a lot of French cafes are.

My husband and I were recently in Knoxville and found this restaurant on another review site. It had really great reviews, so we gave it a shot! As you enter, the quaint decor is definitely French bistro, replete with the menu's listed on chalkboards. You place your order at the counter with staff that are friendly and helpful. We sat...

We had crepes filled with smoked salmon,cherry jam,cheese,etc but what really added to the bill were the cute gifts on the side.Tiny silicone purses that looked like cakes and... More

We ordered crepes and sandwiches- both of which were great! The staff made the wrong sandwich for one of the members of our party, and they fixed it immediately and let him take the wrong sandwich home for a snack later. My daughter and I split the ham and cheese crepe for lunch, and then we each had the strawberry/nutella... More
