“Reminds me of Paris”
Reviewed November 7, 2013

The crepes are thin and delicious and come in a variety of sweet or savory fillings. We were celebrating a birthday and ordered dessert. It was wonderful. If you're tired of mass produced restaurant food, this is the place to go.

“An insult to French cuisine”
Reviewed April 27, 2013

Long, long ago, there used to be a restaurant chain called La Crepe that served pretty decent crepes. This is not that La Crepe. This is a dreadful little cafe in a strip mall that serves nasty, runny giant pancakes filled with disgusting messes and tries to pass them off as French crepes.
I have eaten crepes in Paris and the abominations served at La Crepe are nothing like them. Neither are La Crepe's leaden, gummy croissants anything like light, crisp, buttery French croissants.
The owner is either terribly deluded and he actually believes his food is acceptable or he just hopes to make a quick buck selling bad "French" food to stupid Americans who can't tell the difference.

“stay clear”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

Went there last weekend, they claim to be a french creperie/bistro, what a let down, when I looked at the menu I saw croque monsieur, which is normally made with Ham and gruyere cheese broiled to make the cheese melt and butter on the outside of the bread, Them their croque monsieur is tomato, cheese and lettuce, when I ordered, I asked them to add ham, they added two paper thin ham slices there was 1 super thin piece of cheese with lettuce and a slice of tomato on toast, and this was $7.95, wow a plain crepe is $5 and change, a crepe is made with flour, milk and eggs the cost is approx. $0.27, their cappuccino is $4.50 and it came lukewarm. I am so displeased with this restaurant calling itself a french cafe where no one speaks french, with prices that would be ok at Le Bernardin in NYC, it is an insult to french food, as a retired french chef, I would give it zero stars on the food, stay clear save your money go to Subway for a better sandwich and Starbucks for a better cappuccino
