Good Crepe recipe, cold ingredients. The Crepe ingredients are not cooked long enough, so it pre-made ingredients barely warmed. Two ladies were working a couple of days after x-mas 2013, and clearly did not want to be there. Poor Customer service, waited 10 minutes at counter for a water cup to be filled with a sour attitude. It appears that the beverage fridge in front is turned off at night, because none of the drinks were chilled in front. A manager walked into the store, unwelcoming attitude and had a conversation with an employee as a crepe was being made, telling her to put on a hairnet, which she did not. We have been CoCo Crepes in the past, usually sitting outside, where you can enjoy the surrounding atmosphere. The place is usually busy, but we were treated very poorly as single costumers on a week day morning. We have decided to not return to this restaurant.
One of the best coffees around town. This place really takes heart on making their coffee one of the best tasting coffee around. They really know how to make it better.
Love the Crepes!!! – Have been a few spots all over Houston for crepes and this one wins the prize. The portions are huge and the ambiance is fantastic. Nice place to relax.
Alright Experience – This is where I first tasted crepes. I thought it was okay, but i wasn't a big fan of it. I got the strawberry and banana nutella crepe dessert and it tasted alright to me.
When I had my 22nd birthday, we hired a crepe guy from "creative crepes" and that's when I fell inlove with it! It was delicious and that's the real thing..
So I guess what I mean is that.. It wasn't a best experience for me. Staff were alright, food was alright, but location is great.
I don't mind coming back again, but I know I could get better crepes somewhere else.
I like this place a lot! – As a big fan of crepes I was very happy to discover this place.
Crepes are delicious - both salty and sweet.
Staff is sympathetic and this midtown area is so nice - I love sitting outside just enjoying this unique Houston quarter.
great freakin crepes – never had them untill someone told me about this place. ive only have the desserts and their great.
Sara is lacking in Customer Service – This is one of my favorite places to eat. However, every time I ask for a Booster and Sara waits on me, she makes some lame excuse as to why she can't make it. Most of the time it is "we are out of hot sauce". We went yesterday and I requested a Booster, was given the lame excuse of "we are out of hot sauce" and lo and behold as I was walking outside, a big ole bottle of hot sauce was sitting on the condiment cabinet. I took it up and put it right next to the cash register where she was and she just looked at me like, "and?" I asked one of the other wait staff why she does this and they replied that she "only wants to be a cashier". Sara, if you don't want to serve your customers, go be a cashier at Randall's. Other than that the rest of the staff is WONDERFUL and the crepes are unsurpassed!
I tried the entire menu and I liked it – Having spent a year living just upstairs I’ve spent some serious time at CoCo’s outdoor tables simply reading, working or watching the world go by. It was a wonderfully convenient place to have in my apartment building and I miss it. In addition to the standard espresso bar, CoCo’s offers up creative smoothie blends, Italian sodas, gelatos, chocolates and of course, crêpes. I’ve actually tried every single one of these and was always pleased. The savory crêpes are a particularly surprising treat since the Middle Eastern background of the owners has resulted in some creative spices and combinations.
The Coco’s experience is so deliciously pleasant that I don’t even mind the way they refer to crème anglaise as “crème brulée sauce” and that says a lot coming from me. Okay, maybe it does bother me a bit, but I wouldn’t let it stop me from eating there!
Good place for brunch! – Went there on a Wednesday (around 12) and it wasn't too packed. Ordered two different crepes... one had smoked salmon, capers, and cream cheese and the other one had raspberry sauce, strawberries, bananas, and chocolate mousse. Both were very appetizing! Decided to try out their coffee and I was pleasantly surprised... their Iced White Chocolate Mocha wasn't too sweet or "syrup"-y tasting. The staff is also friendly. I just wish they'd expand the eating area or at least update the interior. But overall, it was a very good experience!
I only gave 4 stars because the inside isn't too pretty.
