“What's not to love about Nutella!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013 via mobile

I would highly recommend a stop for a Nutella dessert crepe after dinner and a few cocktails. This place is not on 5th but its on the next block up so its not far off the beaten path. There is no ambience here so I would get it to go. They had many other crepe's but I only tried the Nutella.

“Crepes in Mexico”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

A really small booth on the 10th avenue, but definitely worth a visit.

We tried both the salty and sweet crepes and they were really good. If you really want to indulge yourself, try the one with the caramel sauce, it's just decadent.

The smoothies with fresh fruits were also really good, I recommend the one with strawberries and mango.

The owner is not very surprisingly French, so it's a good time to brush up on your french as well! :)

“A Must go place in Playa”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2012

I recommend this place to everyone. The food is simply delicious. The French owner, David used to work in a 5-star ranking restaurant. He got tired of stress and opened his own place. You can get fresh-made juice and different styles of crepe. I had the crepe made with goat cheese, mushroom and bacon. It was excellent! Don't miss this place, you will not regret. Now, this place certainly wins the word of mouth from me : )

“Delicious!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2012

The crepes here are simply delicious. I recommend the cheese and mushroom crepe, as well as four cheeses and raisin one. I only wish I had room in my stomach to try one of the sweet crepes! There is also a wide selection of juices, which are of generous portions.
