Nice portion size, not huge, and served with a small, dressed salad. The Veggie Crepe was excellent, with humus, grilled portobello, squash, .... Loved this meal. The Badda-Bing (with two sausages and pizza sauce) couldn't compare, but was good. It seemed everyone who stayed at our B&B went there and we shared our experiences at breakfast. All of us loved it.
We were too full to try the dessert crepes, but they looked great.
They have outdoor seating on the mini porch and the sidewalk. You cannot get alcohol while seated outside.

My gluten-intolerant mom is almost always stuck eating salads for her meals when we travel. Boring! So she was overjoyed to hear that there was a gluten-free creperie within walking distance of our B&B in Manitou Springs. When my husband and I traveled to Montreal and Quebec City, we enjoyed many fabulous French crepes, so I, too, was eager to try this place. While I will say that these crepes don't quite live up to the classic French ones, they are still VERY tasty and are remarkable for gluten-free food. The meals are reasonably priced, even at dinner (around $10-$12 for a crepe and small side salad) and there is so much variety in their savory crepes (everything from Mexican to Greek to Indian style fillings) that we went back a few times. They are happy to do vegetarian, too. My mom was so happy and even my dad, who is more of a burger or hot dog kind of guy, was won over by the tasty food. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone, whether they have gluten allergies or not.

There were 4 of us and we each had a different crepe. All of their crepe's are gluten free which is a plus if you have anyone with wheat allergies/intolerance. Each crepe we tried was different and oh so good. Each one was served with a side salad or potatoes. We didn't try the potatoes, but the salads were excellent. The service was a little slow on refilling drinks but other than that it was excellent.

Crepes and a bar - very original. Mid-afternoon we stopped for a hot apple cinnamon crepe. It was wonderful - just enough cinnamon and a dap of whipped cream, not smothered. Contemporary decor, friendly staff, and more than adequate portion size.
A great place - we'll return on our next trip!

While on vacation in CO, the wife and I spotted the Crepe sign and she needed no convincing. We sat down and ordered a "Cheeky Monkey". It was great. Just the right sweetness! Paid up and left. If we ever make it back to CO, we will certainly stop by to try more. Oh yeah, cool French music and nice atmosphere to boot.
