Delicious sweet, savory, and breakfast crepes. Highly recommend for any time of day. It's a nice relaxing atmosphere and has the best Lobster Bisque I've ever tasted.

This cozy, neighborhood place has charm all over it, not to mention a wide selection of sweet and savory crepes and scones. Regular coffee and espresso drinks are available--the latter were strong and flavorful. Busy and friendly!
