Several people recommended this place and when we walked in, we had high hopes for this very French-looking bistro. Unfortunately, we were seated at a table at the entrance to the back room which meant customers and staff were constantly squeezing by. The coffee and bread were delicious, but served by a rather surly waiter. We shared a ham and... More

Love this little spot on Clark St for crepes and wine. The place is small, so reservations would be best.

I went to have brunch with my husband and since I lived in France and know a bit of French crepes, I was actually expecting something really good. Instead, the crepes we ordered were not very tasty and the bacon and potatoes coming along were almost burned. I have not tried the sweet crepes so I do not know if... More

The restaurant has a very comfortable, family setting. The staff is friendly and prompt. We had a variety of dinner and dessert crepes. All of them were fresh, hot and tasty. We would return and definitely recommend the place for a casual meal.

This cozy neighborhood place, in the heart of Lakeview, features crepes and simple provincial French details. They consistently get the details right. The servers are informed and attentive, the wine list is generous and of high quality (even of the most modest bottle), and I have never had a bad crepe in over 35 years as a patron. A singleton...

Friendly service. Excellent crepes - crispy on the outside and tasty, high-quality ingredients on the inside. We had the fruits de mer (shrimp & scallops w/bechamel sauce) and the vegetarian (broccoli & tomato). Nice bubbly by the glass on New Year's Eve. Old bistro atmosphere w/fireplace and lovely French music set the stage for a late lunch after seeing a... More

The crepes are fantastic and they follow the good old french recipes. My favorite is seafood on a light white sauce and of course the crepe suzette. Can't go wrong with any of the crepes and a nice selection of french wines also very affordable.

While traveling by the local bus, my mom and I discovered this jewel. I can only imagine this place is great during the summer, with patio seating in the back. We both had a basic crepe and they were priced reasonable, and very tasty.

Found this restaurant on a trip to Chicago. I had an amazing beef bourginion crepe and a strawberry crepe. People in my party also had a ham and cheese crepe that was really good. The waitress overheard it was my birthday, she brought out some whipped cream with a candle and sang "happy birthday."

One of our go-to places. Consistently good with excellent service! Fantastic FOS! The beef bourguignon crepes were great. The waiter recommended a smooth red blend that wasn't even the most expensive wine!
