Good coffee

Best coffee in Knoxville. Great people wonderful food. If you call ahead they said they could set up tea service for a father daughter date night which I plan on using for my 2 girls.

While passing through Knoxville we stopped for lunch. This place is great the food . I had the salad with chicken salad the spinach was so fresh, feta and tomatoes and the best balsamic dressing I've ever had. My husband had the roast beef on a baguette the bread was unbelievably good. There wasn't a kids menu but they made... More

The crepe that I ordered was very good, and staff taking my order suggested combining as I could not decide between two options. My crepe eventually was stuffed with turkey, Swiss, artichokes, and avocado. This was a good combination and more than an ample portion. The French roast dark coffee was amazingly good. I also enjoy the Parisian atmosphere of... More

I was steered towards this quaint little restaurant by a person in the hotel biz. She said it was amazing, and boy was she spot on! The staff was quirky but very friendly, and the butter and maple syrup crepes was out of this world! I could actually taste butter. I added a piece of sausage as I was splurging... More

This a cute and quaint French café located in downtown Knoxville, TN that serves amazing crêpes. To be honest, my lunch here was one of the best meals I’ve ever had. I ordered a savory crêpe (turkey, bacon, Swiss cheese and avocado) and a sweet crêpe (Bavarian cream.) Both were absolutely phenomenal! The crêpes were fresh, fluffy and perfectly cooked.... More

We happened upon this very cute, French crêperie on July 4. Surprisingly, there was not a long wait and there were plenty of cafe tables -- both in and out. My Parisian ham and cheese (with a fried egg on top) and my husband's Monte Cristo were as delicious as any savory crêpe I've tasted, even in France! I would... More

Yummy salmon and a montecristo crepe went down delightfully well. This little spot is a gem and shouldn't be missed for a lighter meal or taking a break. The evening special looked intriguing, but we didn't have the time on our trip to go back.

My fiance and I go to their Sunday brunch every week and it is always excellent. The crepe suzette is incredible and the service is outstanding. We usually go to the Farragut location and the staff is wonderful. Vanessa, Abbey, and Ricky in particular. If you ever have the opportunity you should definitely try them...and if you don't have an... More

I have eaten here on several occasions since having first eaten crepes in France. Savory or sweet - each crepe has been more than delicious. There has never been a long wait to order and the crepes are prepared quickly. Staff is efficient and friendly, crepes are good size and decent price. First time recommendation: try roast beef and cheddar... More
