This cafe is small but mighty! Great crepes and delicious coffees and pastry. You can tell all is homemade and organic when possible. Small eatery and the staff were a bit tight lipped but I would highly recommend Bradbury's. Get there early if you want muffins or scones - they sell out fast.

Service was great. They were very helpful with coffee suggestions. We both had the Kale, cherry tomatoes, corn frying peppers and mozzarella crepe loaded with veggies. The dark chocolate and raspberry crepe we split - heavenly. The combined flavors of chocolate, raspberry and homemade whipped cream were perfectly balanced. Sweet but not too sweet. Great meal that made it worth... More

Wow. That's what you'll say after you experience Bradbury's. My fiancee loves the coffee here, but I am such a fan of their crepes, which are very original. They kept changing their savory crepe menu, so I had to keep going back to try them. But the sweet crepes remained relatively constant. I can't give any recommendations here because all... More

Bradbury's may be small, but it packs a punch. The macchiatos and cappuccinos are consistently excellent and the crepes delicious. When you stop in you'll see they have a limited menu, but that is the beauty of Bradbury's; what they do, they do very well. The vibe and size may not be everybody's cup of tea, but I highly recommend... More

Good coffee. Nice options of either savory or sweet crepes. Service is a little slow - but quality is not fast food!

I ate there for the first time today, and had the Delicata Squash crepe (very good!), pumpkin crepe (not enough flavor), and Japanese Siphon coffee w/Kenyan coffee beans (I'm not a coffee drinker; it was o.k.). Total price for these items was $26. The Japanese Siphon coffee is a few dollars more than regular coffee. I will probably go at... More

The crepes are yummy and fun plus the coffee is excellent. The sweet crepes tend to be pretty sweet, so be ready. The savory crepes are especially good, filled with local veggies, cheeses, and meats. YUM. Two things pull the place down to 4 stars: First, the place is small and uncomfortable. You will be packed in tightly with other... More

My kid and I had the chocolate raspberry crepes and decaf mochas. We are still talking about them. Big dollops of delicious, creamy, dark chocolate; loads of big, fresh raspberries; thin, sweet crepes; whipped cream on the side. Wow. The mochas weren't hugely sweet or chocolatey. I liked that; my daughter added sugar. The interior is small and industrial. We... More

This snug little place serves up some great sweet and savory crepes, but they take forever to make; plan for at least a 15-20 minute wait. The cafe is small and doesn't offer the most comfortable sit-down experience, but the crepes make up for the minor misses. Go solo, or with a friend. The restaurant isn't very suitable for large...
