Managed to grab a table for two outside and enjoyed a great breakfast. Shared a lemon crepe and eggs and toast and really enjoyed the breakfast. Very busy location and service was a bit slow, but crepe was excellent and the eggs were ok (hard to mess up eggs and toast). Highly revpcommmemded simply for the location and good price.

We spent 4 days in San Monica and ended up eating here all four. We looked at several others, but they did not measure up. The food is excellent. The service is also and the food arrives quickly. You can sit outside or inside. You may have to wait for an outside table.

This place is amazing if you love crepes and milkshakes. Great service and friendly staff. The savoury crepes are the best definitely recommend the salmon and red onion one.

The ambiance could look French with the advertising on the wall. This is where the comparison stops. Crepes are too thick, with no elegance and delicate taste. I can't believe that they stated that crepes were Parisian style ... there Parisian style for crepes Please avoid this place if you look for some French cuisine

If you like crapes in my opinion and a traveled the world this is number one spot, my favorite is dark chocolate with fresh strawberry and in the side double shot of espresso macchiato

Visited on a week day for a late lunch and the place became really busy about 3pm. My sister and I ordered 2 different veggie crepes. These crepes were a little thicker than the traditional but very light and delicious. Nice outdoor seating to watch life pass by on the 3rd street promenade.

Stopped here for breakfast which was very enjoyable, reasonably priced and great service. Breakfast was served quickly and was delicious. We sat inside as it was a cool morning but there's some outside seating which on a warmer day would be lovely eating breakfast and people watching!

We stopped here on a crowded Sunday and the staff was very helpful finding us a table for four. We each ordered something different and all was tasty and served without a long wait. The crepes were way too thick to be considered French but probably appealed to the American taste. We'd stop here again if we find ourselves in... More

Staying in Santa Monica

Neighborhood Profile
Santa Monica
Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a balance as a tourist destination and as an area with a thriving local culture. On the beach, bikers, roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles weather. The solar-powered Ferris wheel at the Santa Monica pier spins high above the water, while park revelers scream with delight riding the roller coaster. Inland from the beach, Third Street Promenade bustles with shoppers and street performers, where every block seems to have a musical or acrobatic act drawing crowds giving Santa Monica both the feeling of a laid-back beach town and a major commercial hub.
