Visited this place with a few friends after going to the Christmas lights show. The food was really good and the service was great. They have a unique menu of sandwiches, that I really enjoyed.

We had a small bowl of each of the soups and they were great. The brie with honey and walnuts was just the right start to the meal. Each of us had a different savory crepe and they were just the right amount for our lunch.

We haven't been here for a few years. The food is good but I wish the selection of Crepes were more. Staff was friendly and we arrived before the crowd. It has a lot more potential. Enjoy!
