Lovely experience lunching here with college friends. The unlimited fruit and basil scented water is the best on a hot day. The crepes are tasty and filling, fresh salads are a nice complement. They didn't pressure us to leave, either, so we had a great time catching up, and have planned to make this our go to place for future... More

I have always made it a point to savour their crepes when I am in Fremont. Their savory crepes, as also the dessert crepes, are awesome. And they are quite happy to serve you a fine crispy crepe ( which is the way I like them ). If you are there, dont miss it !

Ok, you think crepes and you think "stuffy French cuisine". Not at all. Informal setting, but the crepes are lovely. Terrific variety of dining options. We love this place.

Sometimes a sweet treat is exactly what you need for a "pick me up" I ordered a banana and chocolate crepe to satisfy my sweet tooth. It was delicious. The cafe Americano I ordered was disappointing because they used flavored beans, which took away the aroma and taste of the roasted beans. The service was poor. The waitress took off... More

I ordered a crepe which was good, not great. Service was very good, staff very nice, and interior quite pleasant. Will go again as it is an enjoyable place to spend an hour with friends.

Love the crepe selection here, especially the dessert ones. Has a funky international vibe that almost reminds me of a loungy night club. Food is very delicious and an amazing selection for a light meal or decadent dessert.

I wanted to enjoy this place, where I met friends for lunch, but was disappointed in my Scandinavian crepe. Although the crepe itself was good, the filling of pale and tiny canned shrimp was a surprise, as was the watery mushroom sauce that was said to contain dill (and did contain some green bits) but didn't taste of dill at...

A little gem in Fremont. It's so hard to find cute restaurants like this in Fremont with beautiful decor and very good food! Love their crepes and variety of selection. Definitely try this place!

The crepes are excellent, and the existence of an entire menu of crepes is quite the thing in Fremont. The service was good, and so were the crepes. They have a decent collection of wines too. I'd recommend at least one visit to check it out.
