I would say it's OK, the workers and the waiters did a great job taking care of us, The coffee and espresso drinks need some help. The crape was tasty but both drink and crape just a little over priced for what you get. But...More

We enjoyed our lunch at le Petite Zinc. Delicious coffee. Very good server. Crepe sandwich, salad, and dessert were very good. I would have enjoyed the dessert banana walnut crepe with a whip cream or ice cream in the middle! 'Courtyard' entryway needs some TLC.

Chocolate walnut banana crepes and rattwtoulie baguette lunch very good. Cappuccino is good, right amount of foam, not like an over foamed Starbucks. Salad with sandwich is very small. Quality very good.

Stopped by this locally owned eatery for brunch. The location is great and the food was fair to excellent (quiche of the day and salmon sandwich, respectively). Waitstaff seemed cold/indifferent on the day we visited.

This is a small, casual restaurant with a short menu full of French classics: crepes, salads and sandwiches . The place is small: inside there are about 6 tables and a bar that sits six people. If you come during winter try to arrive early...More

Would never have found this place without Tripadvisor so once again thank you. It is an odd little place in an odd little location but it really works. In a very quiet area of Detroit this little French Bistro serves up great coffee, crepes and...More

Cutest little restaurant in a nondescript part of Detroit. Easy to find street parking and there's never been a wait when I've come. A total hidden gem! It almost feels like you're not in Detroit any longer. Every crepe I've had here has been delicious....More
