“Delicious and Fresh!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2012

My cousin has been telling me about this place for a while, so we met for lunch and tried it out. It's kind of hidden on a strip next to an Exxon gas station on Fenton Street. It is an intimate cafe, only about 4 tables and a bar with stools. They have two parts to the menu: Sweet and Savory.

The Sweet Side has options like fruit, nutella, powdered sugar etc

The Savory Side has options like cheese, egg, meat, veggies etc

I got from the Savory side, a cheese, spinach and egg. It was around $5 and huge! My mom and I split it and we were both full! The cashier is also the cook and her machines are right in front, behind the counter. You could see her using gloves and bringing out the fresh spinach from the fridge and cooking everything to order.

My sister got the number 27 (Honey Al) from the Sweet Side, which had almond powder, honey, bananas and whipped cream. She loved it.

Everything is under $10 and you can create your own crepe as well as order from their menu. Please note that the only thing they have is crepes and drinks. I will definately be going back.

“Wonderful crepes, inadequate signage”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2011

This place has delicious crepes and gracious service. Unfortunately, the sign outside says Fenton Cafe and beneath it in smaller letters Coffee and Crepes, so I had trouble finding it as anyone might. From the outside looks like just a luncheonette. Inside it's sunny and they have good magazines for their guests.
