Had a great lunch here with my friend yesterday, followed by one of the sweet crepes. Everything was delicious and the service very friendly. Definitely recommend

The first time I visited Gulu gulu I fell in love with the crepes. I made a special trip from our Plum Island vacation just to bring new friends to try the delicious crepes. I cannot believe how disgusting it was and absolutely no filling....More

We'd a great time. They have an amazing selection of beers, the flights were awesome. Wasn't crazy with their food menu but had a good time. I love the set up too. Will definitely go back.

The menu is the same, for lunch or dinner. They have a very extensive bar with lots of beer choices. The food is great, several vegetarian choices, very nice service and a fun atmosphere
