This is a Great place to visit for breakfast or brunch on the weekend. If you work or visit downtown during the week it would be a mistake not to eat here. I would eat here a minimum of once per week if I worked downtown. Highly recommend trying this place. It is nice to find a French crêperie in... More

I enjoyed the lunch with one daughter so much I had to bring the other another time and then my wife... All were in the atmosphere of a quaint little get-together, prompted by the uniqueness of the fare on the menu. Try the nutella and strawberry crepe!

I frequent the Farragut location at least once a week. Absolutely love the goat cheese and walnut crepe (yes, add the fig jam). Nice, clean, quiet place to have lunch. You can watch as your crepe is made. Outside seating available.

Any of the sandwich crepes are delicious. I have one of the vegetarian ones and BH has meat. We usually have an egg added:D. They also have sweet crepes for dessert. We've never had a bad one! Also the monster dog is welcome on the patio which we appreciate. Weve eaten at both locations and always enjoyed it.

We enjoy sharing savory crêpes and then the blueberry lemon curd crepe for dessert shared as well. The crepes can be prepared with buckwheat flour, which adds scrumptious flavors. Vegetarians and omnivores are both satisfied. Less adventurous diners can order croissant sandwiches. Small seating area inside. Lovely outdoor seating.

Stopped in for lunch with my wife and son and we all had different crepes for our main meal and shared a dessert crepe afterwards. Really enjoyed the lunch and will definitely return again.

This place was friendly and had really adorable atmosphere. I liked the feel of the decoration inside. The crepes were delicious. We were there on a Saturday and arrived just after opening. I think the only real drawback is that it's so good that they get pretty busy, which can lead to long waits. Since they are making each crepe... More
