“Large portions and simple food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 24, 2013

It is quite noisy outside, with cars going past, and there are probably too many selections on the menu, but the food is good and the staff are friendly

“Good creps, poor service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 21, 2013

You order at the counter, pay, get a table to sit down and then the waiter brings your food and drinks. I was very happy with my vegetarian crep, but the waiters were very rude: they were almost yelling at us, asking who had order what, and if we didn't answer within 1 second, they would start walking away with the plate! Anyway, the food was good, and for that price, you can't expect much more than fast food service.

“Eat Here Each Time We Are Here”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 21, 2013 via mobile

Love this place and the tasty food. The breakfast and lunches are the best; the eggs Florentine was so good! And loved the lemonade, hubby had the ham sandwich which was the percent blend of flavors. We had the dessert crepes and coffee....again very good. I had the apple crumble and he had the whole thing. We will be back again!

“Great brunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 7, 2012

We went to the Marina location on Sunday morning and were grateful to beat the crowd but it is very well organized. You place your order, pay and are seated- what made the place was the outdoor garden in the back where we sat. I had food envy of every plate I saw. The guy working back there as the head server was fantastic- so organized. I had the smoked salmon scramble and my husband got the crab eggs benedict which were delicious. Coffee and mimosas and we had the perfect morning! Love the neighborhood too! Can't wait to come back.

“Healthy and Delicious”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

We went for breakfast. What amazing food, made from the freshest ingredients, and many come from local sources. I had the eggs benedict and the hollandaise sauce was obviously home made because it was so light. The Rosemary breakfast potatoes are fabulous and so are the pancakes. The pancakes taste so good you don't even need syrup. I highly recommend this restaurant located on Chestnut Street.
