The menu offers a vast array of crepes, both savory and sweet. If crepes aren’t your thing they have salad, soup, and appetizers. I saw the cheese and fruit platter and it is gorgeous. Crepes are however, my thing. There are many combinations offered, and they will custom make whatever combination you would like. I decided to do a breakfast combination of scrambled eggs, Swiss cheese, and roasted leeks. Al opted for the steak and eggs with crepes and bearnaise. His steak was not inside his crepe, it was folded on the side. We ordered a red bliss potato and onion home fries.
As good as the savory crepes were, it was the sweet crepe that bowled us over. We shared a baked pear crepe and opted for the addition of creme Anglais. The pears were perfectly sweet, still firm enough to keep their shape, but soft enough to melt in your mouth. Choosing pear was a hard decision with the like of mixed fresh berries, bananas, apples, toasted coconut, toasted almond, and chocolate being offered. Any of their desserts can also be had in a glass.

And the crepes. Most diners are often overwhelmed by the number of choices of fillings, such as coq au vin, goat cheese and beef bourgingnon. The crepes are large and substantial. When I go out with friends, we often stop in for dessert crepes such as the one filled with chestnut paste and chocolate. They also make great salads. I almost always return for the roasted pear and roquefort salad with spiced pecans. They flavors meld perfectly in that salad and it is big enough for two people.
