    Quality food, lots of choices. Great coffee & crepes! Sunday brunch always a wait. Tiny tables are packed tightly. Cozy intimate atmosphere. Don't try coming here with more than 3 to your group.

    I really enjoyed the coziness of this place. If you don't feel like a sandwich or crepe, try the Shrimp Curry! Totally unexpected and seriously amazing! My friend who frequents here was blown away

    Chocolate croissants are the best I've had since Paris. Make sure you ask them to warm it up, makes it that much better

    you can forgive yourself if the moment you step in, you instantly feel like you're in a traditional parisian bistro and want to exclaim oooh la la! (please don't)

    The service isn't great, but the food and ambiance are top notch.

    Charming Parisian cafe in Chelsea that serves delicious savory crepes. The French onion soup is perfectly gooey and rich.

    Great crepes. And salads. A real French simple bistro. And it's across from Billy's

    They're known for their brunch but the dinner is so underrated. Jasmine curry shrimp!

  • Stephen M.

    Thankfully, the delicious food and warm atmosphere made up for the severely lacking service. Only go if you have an hour and a half to spare and don't mind dirty glasses.

  • Chetta

    Delicious crepes, terrible service. Two tables that were seated after us were served and on their way before we got our meal.

    Chetta · March 30, 2014
  • Dunja L.

    The only cheap + non-pretentious place in the area.

    Crepes are amazing. Nice service, friendly people, little tight but very euro-cafe feeling. Highly recommend for brunch - enjoy the atmosphere and food very much.

    Best crepes in New York City!

    Albert Wenger · September 24, 2013
  • Leslie T.

    One of the female servers was whack at the very end - beware of the snooty brunette w/ponytail. Otherwise the turkey, ratatouille & goat cheese crêpe was amazing! SO much goat cheese!

    Leslie T · August 21, 2013
  • Jessica R.

    Without a doubt one of my favorite places in NYC and consequentially the whole world. Come in early for a quite start over a perfect omelette and greens. And ask for Maria, you won't regret it.

    Jessica Randazza · August 17, 2013
  • Sumit D.

    Salmon crepe was delicious

    Sumit Darji · July 20, 2013

    Best French cafe in the globe, or at least West Chelsea. Don't let uncomfortable chairs deter you. Amazing omelets, beautiful crepes and great staff. And if you wait long enough you may even see me.

    Jessica Randazza · February 12, 2013
  • Carla B.

    Best nutella crepe EVER!

    Carla Bonnet · December 26, 2012
  • Randy F.

    Never more welcoming than on a slick early winter morning, when the coffee is strong and the patrons share their warmth.

    Randy Faust · November 27, 2012
  • Martin T.

    You can usually catch Ethan Hawke here in the mornings during the week.

    Martin Torres · November 14, 2012
  • Bekir D.

    Try Onion soup. Delicious

    Bekir Dogan · October 23, 2012
  • Shana C.

    While the food was good, in this really classic French way, the service was slow and badly paced. :-\

    Shana Carp · October 21, 2012
  • Eliza K.

    The food is delicious, and they have fun ice cream flavors. Beware: Wine is very expensive considering the super small pour and low quality.

    Eliza K · September 9, 2012
  • Ben B.

    Try a crepe with Swiss cheese, Tomatoes and bacon. Comes w small salad and I crave this!

    Ben Brooks · September 3, 2012
