We’ve been to CRU Cafe 4 or 5 times and are never disappointed. They are reasonable and have a huge variety. The service is great. They have great vegetarian and pescatarian options. And lots of meat lovers options. You can get everything from an avocado...More

Fantastic food. Community spaces. Really an experience. We had classy tater tots, a great take on avocado toast, a simple grilled cheese and their take on chicken pot pie.

This is a very casual place were you order at a counter and the food is brought out. Was tasty and well priced. I would come here if your looking for a dining experience, but good for grabbing a quick bite.

Cru Café is the complete package. Food is excellent, portions are generous, prices are very reasonable. Highly recommend. The only negative is the Cru café closes at 5pm, so you can only order breakfast or lunch (or both) at the Cru café..

Nice little off-the-beaten-path cafe. Quiet and still not far from the husstle and bustle of Bellevue Ave. Nice staff and good sandwiches. In the summer it's nice to sit outside.

This place nailed it. Simple set up, but what they offer is good, clean and satisfying. There are plenty of diner type of options in the area with variable food and service, but CRU Cafe is just lovely. Will definitely come back to enjoy coffee...More

In searching for breakfast, we found Cru Cafe. The format was simple, you walk in, order from the counter and they bring your meal to you. You bus your own table. If you don’t mind not being waited on, this is a great place. The...More

I wish I could help you with your question but I did not notice the function area. Best to ask the owner for a photo of the space.
