Nothing better to me than combining a great meal with good company at a reasonable price. This joint in San Bruno might be serving the best crepes I've ever tested and yes I have visited France multiple times. The key is to go with their special in house buckwheat flour that gives the crepe a very special taste, more like... More

This is our favorite restaurant in San Bruno. The menu is a combo of French/Mediterranean/North African cuisine. Its not food that you can get just anywhere. Everything is very well prepared, using really fresh ingredients. From every type of crepe that you can imagine, paninis, salads, couscous and brochettes--everything is excellent!

My family went here for breakfast and we all loved it. The staff were friendly and helpful. The atmosphere was cute and comfortable. The food was awesome! The French toast, the pancakes, the bacon...everything was delicious! We will definitely return to this restaurant.

Great place for breakfast, lunch or dinner! Breakfast is great! Try the beef bacon!!! Savory crepes are delicious and the dessert ones are a must!!! Every time we come up to the Bay, we stop in for a bite! Lovely staff. Outside eating. Inside a little cramp. Great place all around.

The cappuccino was good. Croque monsieur was soggy and boring. Didn't like the bechamel sauce. Not coming back.

Food is ok. Had their paninis at two separate occasions and they tasted plain and dry. Luckily, the cheese helped which made it tasted a little better. At different times, I ordered the lamb chops, it was pretty good if you don't expect much. This place is always book don't know why, but for us, we come here for convenience.... More

Had a salad so I could get the banana and Nutella dessert crepe, which was bigger than expected. Pretty good overall for those whom like dessert crepes. I also came back another time to get the creme brûlée gelato - now that's really good.

This place is a unique mix of North African (Moroccan), French and American cuisine. The decor is nice, the food is flavorful, and the service is generous. I highly recommend the coucous with grilled chicken, their burgers, gelato, and the Thai tea. My wife and I made sure to go here several times during our 2 trips to the Bay... More
