I'm a frequent visitor when shopping in Lee as I live nearby. I especially appreciate the gluten free offerings and the beverages. I'm not that fond of crepes so I usually don't order them. Nice place to meet friends and have a beverage of choice--for me usually some type of tea or coffee and they have lots to choose from.

My wife and I recently visited this cafe twice while on a trip out in the Berkshires. Excellent food and expresso drinks. Food service is a bit slow, but worth waiting for...after all we were on vacation so not in a rush anyways, but if your in a hurry then maybe....

Loved it here, so many healthy options and interesting salads, crepes, sandwiches... Had to park on the street but this was manageable. This is a great vegetarian/vegan find. Not cheap, but fresh and filling. Glad we stopped in!

Food was fresh and served promptly. Interesting menu full of crepes, fresh juices + smoothies and more. We each got a "lunch" crepe and split a dessert one too, and all were delicious!

I had brunch here for the first time this weekend. I was really excited to see an ample amount of vegan options: crepes, fillings, desserts, soups, and salads. It was a Sunday morning around 11AM. Free street parking was an easy find, and our group of four didn't need to wait for a table. We ordered at the counter, and... More
