We brought our baby daughter here, and the staff was very accommodating. They bent over backwards to make sure we were comfortable. The restaurant itself is warm and charming. The prices are reasonable, the lattes are excellent, and the crepes are fresh and hot. We had The Marathon for dessert - crepe, banana, Nutella, peanut butter, ice cream. So delicious!

Our brunch destination came highly recommended, and did not disappoint. We thought about bailing when the owner told us it would be a 20-minute wait, and it was pretty crowded in the few waiting chairs. Glad we stuck it out. The crepes were delicious, and we enjoyed reading the story about the owners. It's clearly a labor of love for them, and that showed in the food and the decor.

My wife & I were staying in an AirB&B just upstairs from Fontaine & had a craving for desert our first night there. I ordered the Late Nighter & she had the Charming Frenchman. They accommodated our To-Go request since we were staying just upstairs (these wouldn't have made it on a long-distance trip back to a hotel due to the ice cream inside them) and both were SENSATIONAL!! Absolutely delicious!! The young ladies serving us were both very nice! We'll come back next time we're in Alexandria to explore more of their menu! The fact that there were always people eating there when we came or went tells us that they're definitely doing something right!

If you like crepes, this is the place. A small bistro with tables very close together, serving savory crepes, some salads and dessert crepes with a full bar and wine list. A European atmosphere with attentive servers. The savory crepes are made with buckwheat and thus are gluten free. Buckwheat is a strong flavor and can overwhelm the ingredients. A salad of mixed greens is added to the plate. This is not the place for someone with a hearty appetite who likes meat and potato meals.

Service was fine, kept coffee and ice tea full. French toast and omelet were made with local, fresh ingredients and tasted as such. I could see where seating could be a problem but for a Saturday morning it was quite manageable. Atmosphere somewhat eclectic but the food is good and the service friendly.
