We tried 3 different crepes and all were scrumptious. They make everything in house including the balsamic. The feta dish was a little overpowered with balsamic which was fine cause I love it. Nice place to hang and chat with friends and family.

The food here is excellent and the crepes are authentic, the people are nice, the atmosphere is nice as well, the seating is a bit tight but the food makes the experience worthwhile.

We had a delicious brunch in a bistro-like atmosphere. Great coffee, and others had bowls of hot chocolate. Crepe was good, as was the baked eggs dish with all the fixings alongside. Friendly staff.
