CRaVE is a funky little place tucked into a strip mall that you could easily pass by if you didn't know it was there. We found it through a tripadvisor search, and I'm glad that we did. The inside is tastefully decorated and very clean. The menu is large and has a variety of choices to pick from. We were greeted right away and given a comfortable table near the door.
My 5 yr old ordered a grilled cheese which came with chips. It wasn't your Wonderbread variety sandwich, but came on thick-sliced white bread that looked toasted to perfection. The chips weren't to his liking, but everyone else at the table enjoyed them. Everyone enjoyed their meals and the prices were reasonable.
The two reasons this is a "very good" review and not an "excellent" review are because our waitress was not overly welcoming and could be abrupt at times. She warmed up a bit toward the end of the meal, so I want to give her the benefit of the doubt that maybe she was having a bad day. The second is that I eat gluten-free and asked if an egg dish served in a tortilla could be made without the flour tortilla and just plated instead. I was informed that this was a "special order" so if I came back, my request may not be honored. What?!? I just want the tortilla to be left in the kitchen. I wasn't adding any special ingredients or altering their recipe in any other way. I did it for dietary reasons. It left a bad taste in my mouth in what would have been an otherwise very pleasant experience.
