“a disappointment”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2013

we recently visited this restaurant with high hopes, unfortunately they were dashed. we were told we needed a reservation for a 4:30 dinner, so we made one....upon arrival there were only two other people there??? the dining room was very sweet and old french quaint with ice cream parlor tables and chairs....the waitress was very pleasant and tried to be helpful......we started with appetizers which we did enjoy....for our entree we obviously all had crepes and that is where the problem started.....the crepes were thick and rubbery...they almost tasted frozen, then defrosted.....we did have the desert crepes and they too were thick and rubber like.....so, in summary, the food was edible, i did leave full, the waitress was pleasant, the decor pleasing but we felt the price was high for the quality of food served. we would not recommend it. and we feel bad about that because we so wanted to like it.

“Great food and very nice atmosphere.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013

Thus charming restaurant looks like a scene from a Paris cafe. The food is excellent and presented very nicely. Crepes make great desserts as well. Romantic spot too.

“Not bad!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013

I know my title sucks but I was not impressed with the place or the food. First of all I do not love crepes but I do not dislike them either. We went on a Saturday early afternoon for an early dinner/late lunch. No one there but the service was still extremely slow. The food was basically OK. If you are passing by and get hungry just as you pass, stop in. Otherwise don't waste gas!

“Sunday Brunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2013

The service at the restaurant was very attentive. It had a very cute bistro feel. This is a place where you can bring your whole family.

“dom't waste your time or money”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2013

This is the first negative review I have ever written. Firstly it was my sons birthday, I told the manager/owner about it and she didn't even acknowledge it at any point during our meal or after. Second we had a groupon which we called to check on in the morning to see if it was OK to use. When we showed up, were told we can't use it because it is a holiday (Valentines Day?), and when we asked the manager if an exception could be made she said she couldn't because she would be fired (we later found out she is the owner so clearly that was a lie). The food...hmmm well not too many choices, basically a sandwich shop, not a good place for dinner (maybe just a light bite). I could do better making crepes at home and for sure I will never visit this establishment again, the manager/owner is so so rude. When we were walking out and saying goodnight to our lovely waitress this manager just stared at us, no "good night" or "thanks for coming" she is a total jerk! $100 for lousy crepes and a bad attitude. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY!
