“There is a reason for the good rating.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 23, 2014 via mobile

The great:
1. The panini was amazing and gigantic!
2. Everyone at my table loved their meal, especially the crepes which were not what I was expecting. Nice surprise!
3. It's right in the heart of everything so you can walk around after your meals, or a block up the road to sit in the little park.

The not so great:
1. I was on crutches and we sort of had to squeeze into a table because I can't really stand for a long time. There are so few seats that we were lucky to even get those.
2. This is sort of ridiculous, but... The bathrooms are tiny. Clean, but really, really tiny. You are not getting a wheelchair in there. However, at least they had one to use, and it was clean!

“Good, fast with lots of options.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 23, 2014

Very good crepes. Be aware that during the breakfast rush you may not be able to find a table to sit at.

In this place you order and pay in one section and then seat yourself in the another section. Sometimes you will need to wait until others are done in order to get a seat. From what I understand the wait is not long most of the time. However, its seat yourself in a very limited table area.

Crepe was good, I had the smoked salmon and cream cheese.

I would eat here again without any issues.

They have a huge selection of crepes and sandwiches written on a board.

“Tight, Crowded, But Phenomenal Crepes - Worth the Hassle”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2014

Enter and you will be overwhelmed with massive blackboard menus, crowded counters, busy counter staff, and tight quarters for what passes as their dining room. If you figure out what you want from the wall menus, edge your way to the register counter and place your order, pay, then seek out the best seating you can. However, as soon as they call your order number in sometimes un-intelligible English, and you take your first bite everything is forgiven/forgotten except for the delightful and filling dishes they come up with. We went there for breakfast and had the smoked salmon with red onion, capers, and cream cheese and the Pastrami Hash with fried eggs. Both were delicious and completely devoured (see pics). Though we couldn't possibly had the sweet crepes we are determined to come back and indulge.

Great food - try their Do It Yourself Crepes

“Great Food with a frustrating wait”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2014

They are making fresh really good food and they have a system for working on and calling out orders, but there is room for improvement. I went today on a Wednesday and was able to walk straight to the register and order. Last Sunday I waited 15 minutes to get to the register. The worst part of the wait is that there is nowhere to stand. You will take turns blocking the entrance, the drink cooler, the dish return, and the main isle. There should be a sign by the front door telling you that you order at the register and to que up. I saw many people squeeze in the door and look left at the workers behing the counter as if waiting to talk with them. Nobody but nobody talks to the workers. They are mega busy busting their humps to fill orders. You have to discern the line through the people who have ordered and are standing there waiting and camouflaging the line and the people who are actually in line. The coffee is a tad weak but totally drinkable. The seating is miniscule. The selection is outstanding and everything is fresh as evidenced by the crepes being made in the front window and the sumptious breakfast orders coming up hot and tasty. Put your patience in high gear, retreat to somewhere else to eat and go spend the 20 - 25 minutes it will take you to get a great wrap or sandwhich on a busy weekend at breakfast or lunch time.

“Fantastic Crepes”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2014

The vast menu is very appealing, and the food is quite delicious, however, the set up is not customer friendly and quite confusing for the first time visitor. Very limited seating. Much better to take out. Would be super if they expanded.
