“Best Breakfast in EC!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2012 via mobile

We've lived in the Chippewa Valley for almost 7 years and just made it here for breakfast for the first time this morning. Now I know what all the fuss is about-amazing food! They also have great coffee and FRESH SQUEEZED OJ. Hubs got the Penn & Teller, I got the Housewives of EC. Both were incredible, and the portions were huge! The crepes other folks were getting also looked fantastic and ginormous. If you go on a weekend, be sure it is early or during the time school is out, otherwise it's super busy. Go! You won't regret it!

“Always great for breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2012

I really enjoyed my lemon crepe and always enjoy the stuffed french toast. This is a foodie's dream breakfast locale but my lumberjack of a husband has to spend a lot to fill up here.

“Eggs & Grateful Dead - The PERFECT COMBO!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2012

Fantastic food and "my kind of ambiance" - casual, eclectic, laid back, REAL! Enjoy some very unique, tasty and WELL-EXECUTED breakfast/brunch items. El Presidente (I got it without the chorizo) was delicious - kinda like huevos rancheros but better! And the Chevre Crepe was killer. This is the place for breakfast/brunch in Eau Claire!! Enjoy....
