Nice location for an intimate dinner in bistro like setting. Food never disappoints and Thursdays have the added bonus of live music. Bring your favorite French wine and indulge.

Interesting crepe selections with filling ingredients based on national cuisines such as Norway, Greece, and Morocco. Omelets were over cooked and uninteresting. Fresh squeezed OJ and lemon aid a nice treat. Warning, BYOB and cash only.
