There were 6 of us for sunday lunch. The place was full waited about 15 minutes. The restaurant has enough seating. The crepes were very good and service excellent. Prices reasonable.

Quaint and chic French creperie! Enjoyed the brunch. 4 out of 5 because on our 2nd visit, my latte was coffee with steamed milk instead of espresso.

I really like the feel of this place but it's quite small and the tables are pushed pretty close to one another. The crepes - savory and sweet - are extremely well done and varied. A tad pricey, I think. My big issue is that...More
