3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2014 NEW

I give the food 4 stars but the service 2 stars due to how slowly the food came out. Went here for a quick lunch on the way to Rainbow and Akaka Falls. Quick it was not (they only have 3 crepe making stones going) but the food was delicious. We had savory crepes for lunch (Florentine special was delicious)... More

A creperie in Hilo? Could not believe it - food was fantastic - salads fresh, "hearty" crepes expertly made and perfect. And the dessert crepes - wow... off the chart! Highly recommend! With regard to service - the place is small, and when it gets busy can overwhelm the staff momentarily. But this is Hawaii - relax...

Family went there for lunch today and ended up leaving after waiting forever for service. Food might be great, but only if you can get someone to take your order.

Had a wonderful Father's day breakfast in downtown Hilo this morning. Our daughter heard about this new restaurant at work and we are always looking for someplace new and different. This was really a delightful meal. I had the California Garden Veggie Crepe, with 2 eggs over medium and a side of hash browns and a glass of fresh-squeezed orange... More

Went in with such expectations -- both because of ambiance and tripadvisor reviews. We were thoroughly disappointed and simply gaped at one another in amazement. The food was OK, and a person might go back for that. But the service was simply the worst any of us had had in a half-dozen trips to Hawaii, on any island, at any... More

We had a great time. The crepes were tasty, the wine reasonably priced and the two gals running it were great. Our Granddaughter cleaned her plate of the Chocolate dessert crepe, but we did help....

We ate breakfast here as it is right across from the hostel we stayed at, before our drive down to volcano. Great decision! Fun, quirky, and really great food. We got there right as it was opening and the server said the chef hadn't shown up so she would try to make our breakfast crepes. She did an amazing job!... More

I am only giving this restaurant 3 stars. I wanted to give it more but there were too many cons. Our greek salad had only 1/2 the ingredients and they didn’t tell us that they were out of some of the ingredients. Did they think we wouldn’t notice? They did accommodate us by charging us half after we mentioned it.... More

We stopped by here about 9:00 on a Monday morning to grab a quick breakfast. We had the special which was the Crepes Benedict with mushrooms and spinach. It was exceptionally tasty and nicely presented. (If you like your eggs runny be sure to ask as our were a little on the firm side.) The service was good and the... More

W are here on a Monday night. It was very quiet with light French music in the background. We were the only ones in there. It was a little warm in there as there was no a/c and it has been a warm day. I had been wanting to try this place for a while but I was apprehensive about... More
