If you like hair in your food, come here! – I was excited to go here being local and loving crepes. The service was great HOWEVER, when I ate my food- I found a hair.
But one hair can happen to even the best restaurant by accident, so I let it slide. However, I immediately stopped and my stomach swirled when I found TWO MORE HAIRS inside my food. I was really saddened because I had heard such great things about this place. I was also dismayed because the crepe I had been eating had been SO tasty.
I immediately stopped eating and later informed the manager about the severe error. She reassured me with apologies and a promise of coupons in the mail. I provided her with my mailing address but no coupons ever came. Apparently this place just doesn't care. Save your time, and find somewhere else.
This Uptown favorite offers a taste of European charm with a quaint sidewalk scene and sweet and savory crepes. – In Short
An artistic French inspired mural, wine bottles, purple walls and dangling lights welcome customers into this sidewalk corner cafe in the middle of Uptown Whittier. The menu is heavy on crepes: Folks can get everything from a traditional banana-berry and Nutella dessert crepe, an inventive stuffed green chili and chicken savory crepe, or even a custom-created crepe combination. Those not in the mood for the thin pancake can choose from the extensive menu that includes other dishes like salads, sandwiches, pastas and grilled meats. The cafe also regularly features local musicians playing smooth guitar to complete the elegant yet casual European ambience.
All about the atmosphere – This is a great multi-purpose restaurant, It is a good atmosphere to come with friends, family or a date. It is a cute artsy room with some outside seating on a street corner in the nostalgic uptown area. The space is decorated with murals, vines and nice lighting and is known to house the occassional musician. I have had very different service experiences here. They have always been helpful and nice but I once waited over forty minutes for my food when it wasn't even full. The crepes aren't the best I have ever had but are still good especially for the price, and waiters are helpful with suggesting tasty ingredient combinations for the make-your-own crepes. The menu also includes some pastas, salads and other dishes which is good for those who are craving more than a crepe. The dessert crepes are definitely worth a try as well!
Ok crepes if you're in the area – If the Cafe Crepe in Santa Monica is too far away for you, then this place will do. Had breakfast here and it was pretty average -- you know, bacon, omelettes, coffee blah blah blah. The interior is cute and bistro-like and there are sidewalk tables if you wanna eat outside. There are both sweet & savory crepes and while it's hard to mess up a crepe, nothing really dazzled.
cute little place – I came here with a friend and her family a while back and, let me just say that I was surprised about this place. The decor is really cute with a purple theme and the food isn't too shabby either. Of course, there are crepes (which I didn't have, but tasted) and they were pretty good and there was a huge variety of them. I had a panini and that was also good. The servings are not too big, but just right. I would really love to go back.
