“Fantastic Falafal!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 17, 2013

There are many ways to screw up Falafal- I have tasted most of them. The Retro Cafe did a fantastic job of the Falafal Pita. Soooo good, and don't forget to order a Crepe for dessert- my sister and I shared the homemade apricot jam Crepe *drool*.
We will be back!

“Wonderful food, simple”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 15, 2013 via mobile

This small roadside restaurant is easy to miss Just off the busy Northwest Blvd., Creston. The parking is a bit difficult into the restaurant but after that experience is well worth driving a little ways out of town to get to. The owners are a delightful French couple who offer a wonderful European flair to their simple establishment. The menu is usually simple with comfort foods. I have been at this restaurant serval times and still find their Donair second to none. However it would be wise to order whatever daily special they have as it is usually fantastic and fresh

“Locals do eat here”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 5, 2012

My favourite restaurants have 'not the usual fare' menus, genuinely friendly staff, an atmosphere that says 'you are welcome' and the food stands out for presentation, deliciousness and healthy choices. That's Retro Cafe and more. Yes locals eat here because of Corinne and Jean Jacques and what they serve up on all levels. Originally from Marseilles France, they love what they do and their home-made food and hospitality can't be beat.

“Wonderful European Atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 29, 2012 via mobile

Such a nice place with a good selection on menus. Very original and well thought!
It's a little bit of southern France in Creston. Crepes, poutines, pancakes, soups, quiches, etc. Ideal for breakfast, brunches, lunches, "goûters" (tea time) and even more diner!!

“Absolutely charming”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 23, 2012 via mobile

I don't write reviews often, but this time I have no choice because people must know what they're missing. The Retro Cafe is a place to eat real, tasty food. Great menu and healthy too. The owners are from France and committed to provide excellent service combined with pleasing your palate. Each time I stay in Creston I eat there nearly daily. I'm so glad such place exist. Try it and you won't regret it.
