We've been coming here since it's soft opening years ago. I love the atmosphere of the place. It is small, but that's the point of the French Creperie. The fries are amazing! They have a kids menu. The croque madame is enormous. Individual French press...More

My family visited here twice for brunch and we loved it both times. Everything has been delicious, but we particularly enjoyed the Normande crepe and Pain Perdu (french toast on the brunch menu) while the beer tallow French fries are to die for. Other dishes...More

Not sure why this great little restaurant is primarily listed as dessert venue, as they have a terrific menu as well. Both their French Onion and Tomato soups were excellent, as was the Champignon Omelette. Just superb!

We wanted to relive some French memories and a friend suggested this place. It was magical. The decor was perfect. The quiche of the day was the best quiche I've ever had. The simple salad greens that came with it were perfectly dressed as the...More

I really enjoyed the dessert crepe. It was so good. The portions are huge, so we shared one. It was plenty. The dinner was less great, but I don't really know French food that well. Very nice waiter who was very accommodating.
