I haven't been here in over a year when we went to DC for a spring visit. However, I had a friend going to the area and had to tell them about the place. The crepes were the best EVER! and the small cups of expresso that I saw the owner drinking and ordered one for myself were fantastic.....went here... More

We were looking for a dessert and we found Fenton Cafe and was very happy. We had a Nutella crepe and a ricotta and strawberry jam crepe which were both very delicious. Try it you will like it.

In the beginning, we just wanted to drop by for coffee after shopping at the supermarket near by. The cafe from outside looks like nothing special but obviously, they are crepe specialist!! They have long lists of crepes menu, savoury galettes and sweet crepes. All are really fresh and delicious!! Even their espresso and capuccino have also full of coffee... More

I stopped in for lunch and was surprised to discover that they specialize in crepes, both sweet and savory. Normally, I would have walked away because I have severe problems with lactose intolerance, but the vibe was so welcoming that I dashed across the street to the Safeway in order to get lactase pills, and then came back. Glad I... More

The crepes are delicious! So many choices and service is fast. Great breakfast spot. Just don't plan on staying for a long time because there's not much room and the place gets busy.

This is not the place for the coffee lover in me but they make great crepes and i will go out on a limb and say that someone kidnapped a group of really nice people (just joking) and now have them working here! THE HAPPIEST PEOPLE ON EARTH!! With the sudden influx of coffee and pastry places in and around... More

If you shouldn't judge a book by its cover, then you also shouldn't judge a restaurant by its outside appearance. Unfortunately, I did at first -- the awning is pretty worn and didn't seem to be an auspicious beginning for a good dining experience -- but since locals are always here, I had to try it. I had the Blue... More

One would think if ordering something off the menu by its number, it would come with all the ingredients listed. Alas, 2 of the 4 items were missing. Since I had limited time to visit with my friend and we had already been waiting a while, I didn’t go back inside (we were sitting outside) and ask for another. But... More

It is a small and cramped cafe which does serve a good latte, however their food selection is pretty limited. Not a place I would spend time sipping coffee and reading, however for grabbing a quick coffee on your way somewhere it is a good option.

One of the best Crepes, I have had in a very long time. Ethiopian owners, delicious crepes and excellent expresso. Small, simple actually tint, but if you want a breakfast to die for this is the place. We breakfast there 4 days straight.
