I love this place! It has a good variety of sweet crepes, their coffee is delicious BUT their bubble tea is superb! The space is cozy, dim lights with good ambiance. Excellent place to catch up with friends, a date or have a yummy desert if visiting Seattle. It's inside a small Plaza next to a movie theater and some... More

What I got: Strawberry bubble (Tapioca balls) Hot chocolate Frozen yogurt Even the small frozen yogurt was plenty and the small hot chocolate and strawberry bubba! This place has great portion sizes. Also, the quality is there. I have never had a more amazing and frothy hot chocolate. It was like a warm chocolate cloud in my mouth. I also... More

Wow- first visit here and really impressed. The atmosphere is fantastic- some different room for different vibes. The main room has a huge bookshelf with a fireplace in it. The fireplace by itself is awesome and surprisingly hard to find in Seattle coffeeshops. Next- i was amazed at the menu! They have espresso and bubble tea- I had never before... More

I went with a girlfriend to Jewel Box for lunch. I had the tofu and lemon grass crepe and a taro bubble tea. The crepe and the ingredients inside were fresh--it's made after ordering, the crepe shell was soft and chewy, but the lemon grass was barely detectable. The bubble tea was good although the bubbles were a little on... More

I really like this place, and almost gave it 4 stars, but they aren't consistent with their service, and that's what brings it down to 3/5. Atmosphere: Hip, fun. A little loud. I wish it were bigger. It's a great place to settle with my laptop to write, but sometimes it's just too loud. Food: The crepes are delicious. Both... More

We stopped in here after dinner to get some coffee and had a cappuccino and frozen yogurt. The cappuccino was delicious and the yogurt was tart but sweet. The best part about this coffee shop/cafe was the decor and ambiance. There is a fireplace inside, a separate reading room, and many checkers/chess tables. Such a fun place to hang out,... More

My millenials regularly frequent this restaurant and this day the opportunity presented itself for me to join them, for they frequent this establishment regularly and raved about it. It's located in a "village" of sorts just south of the Northgate Mall that is part of a multi-family development, but also nearby to a large theater complex. This probably keeps the... More

Quick friendly staff that had multitasking down to perfection. Crepe was made to order fresh and was very tasty and came with a side of fresh whipped cream so you can add as needed without it melting. Yum! Very nice decor and ambiance. Highly recommended.

The décor here is really cozy and very European. It has a welcoming and comfortable feel. We had lunch here and I would say that the food was average. Clam chowder tasted pretty much like potato soup, and the cheese, pesto and tomato Panini was quite bland. The green salad was good, but the dressing a little sweet for my... More

Finest lattes and mocha's in town. Excellent crepes and sandwiches, as well. Quiet, comfortable atmosphere, friendly service. Often crowded, but well handled seating. Nice stop after movie across the square.
