We stopped in for a late breakfast on a late Friday morning in July. Thankfully the place was fairly slow, but I imagine it is crazy earlier in the day and on weekends, especially during peak season. Nothing small about the portions. Delicious crepes with a creative selection of varieties. There is an extensive vegetarian selection, but traditional bacon is... More

We stopped in here for a late breakfast on our way to The Mount in Lenox because it looked interesting—laid back Berkshires meets Brooklyn hipster cool meets SoHo trendy. We ordered at the counter and waited at a table for the food, which took a bit longer than we would expect given the sizable crew mustering about behind the counter.... More

Four of us on a Friday, good food and lots of gluten free options. Coffee was also good. Went back on a Sunday and left-- the line was out the door, and not moving. Perhaps more staff?

My boyfriend and I were in town for a wedding and we were hungry by the time we got there. The food was great, fast service and I loved the Mozzarella Cheese on the Pesto. However, they only served Roasted Potatoes in place of a salad, on Sundays. That is very odd to me. Not as advertised.

The café is an amazing place in the Berkshires that I’ve gone to many times for some of the best food and coffee you can find here. Get to know the place and you will find this is a real farm to table place that goes above and beyond to provide the freshest and locally sourced goods. Crepes savory and... More

We visited this restaurant on our way through town. It looked interesting and healthy and was in an art gallery, which seemed cool. The great many un-bussed tables should have been a warning. At the counter I asked about the local beers on the board only to be told by the server "I'm not familiar". No offer to get more... More

My dad and I decided to come visit here last week. I ordered the steak panini and my father ordered the French onion soup and mango crepe. When we were ordering from the girl, she seemed to not know how to take orders yet alone work the iPad to take our orders. We found a table, sat down, and waited... More

To be fair the art-filled space is nice and overall (four of us) thought the food was good. But since TripAdvisor doesn't have a "good" rating a few things make us feel the experience was closer to average. In particular, the roast beef in my crepe was really chewy, which made an otherwise good dish hard to eat. Despite being... More

Enjoy great soups and salads surrounded by local artist's work. This Café/ArtGallery is a perfect spot to take a break from Berkshire sightseeing and enjoy brunch or lunch while supporting the work of local artists and also contributing aid to autistic children.

Fun environment with wonderful food. Whole wheat crepes with fruit and granola - oh my! I had the scrambled eggs with mushrooms, scallions, and spinach on toast - I do not understand how they made it so fluffy. I want to go back right now - too bad I live 2.5 hours away!
