The food was good but the service sucked. We were seated promptly but then went downhill. Our server kept disappearing. Another server brought our food and then my husband had to go to counter to ask for check

We thought we'd just find tea and little sandwiches, but to our surprise, we could order crepes, both sweet or savory. Made with ingredients like arugula, goat cheese, etc..... Good stuff - no wonder they're busy on Saturdays.
