This place has a short wait, but is worth it. It is the sister restaurant of the Moondog Cafe and Bakery, the food is just as good. Friendly service, good drinks

The food is great. Our waitress was very enjoyable. We loved our crepes. It is located on the quiet end of Duval. This is a very popular place. Expect a wait before you are seated.
