My husband loves the savory crepes here. Always delicious and always worth the wait. Free coffee and water while you wait for a to go order. Fresh and delicious.

“Love!!!!”
Reviewed May 24, 2013 via mobile

I make a special trip or two to Crema Cafe every time I'm in So.Cal. Love everything there! Had the vegetarian breakfast crepe the last time I was there and enjoyed it a lot. The fresh out of the oven croissants are divine! Got to talk to the owner and he's very passionate in what he does and it shows in his cooking/baking. Going to visit there again in July. Can't wait.

“Egg-cellent Breakfast!”
Reviewed May 4, 2013

Stopped for breakfast because it looked like a lot of locals were at the place. After eating there I can see why! The food, coffee and pastries were all very good. It's a tad pricey for breakfast but totally worth it. The food was extremely fresh. The eggs with tomato and pesto were yummy and you could have fruit or toast. I got a cinnamon pull-apart for the road and I wish I had bought a few of them. Also, the latte I ordered was probably the best I ever had. Hat's off to the barrista! This is a great place to grab something and go or to sit and eat, they have a nice patio space too. My only criticism is the ordering process for eat-in is a bit confusing for new-comers, but it would definitely not stop me from going back.

I've been there on several ocassions and never been dissapointed with the food. It can be a little chilly if you have to sit outside.

“uneven, wish it were better”
Reviewed April 11, 2013

had poached egg (perfect) with smoked salmon (just ok). Napoleon from bakery next door had fantastic pastry cream on a soggy crust. Prices in the ambitious bakery are pretty high but not sure it is worth it.

good stop if you are in the neighborhood
