  • If you manage to get a table next to the window and squint really hard you will almost be in Paris...
  • Saumon fume is fantastic
  • 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.
  • A trip here is worth it. The food, service and atmosphere are impeccable.
  • The nutella crepe was a Sunday afternoon staple for years!! Lovely french cafe where you could literally spend an afternoon reading the paper and enjoying the menu.
  • Great food.
  • An honest French joint, warm, homey, and unpretentious. A savory crpe w mesclun for under $10 = one of Chelsea's better brunch or dinner values. Bonus: atmosphere & peoplewatching.
  • Best crepes in New York City!
  • 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.
  • Best nutella crepe EVER!
  • Came here while back. Lovely atmosphere. Gets really busy though.
  • They have good newspaper/mag rack
  • If you're solo this place is friendly and keeps a great one-seat table. Left of the door, It has best view of the room & the street. Flaneur, flaunt your inner Flaubert!
  • The carrot ginger soup and the crepes where delicious! In full frenchie style they let us have a lengthy convo post meal without kicking us out with the check.
  • The service isn't great, but the food and ambiance are top notch.
  • They're known for their brunch but the dinner is so underrated. Jasmine curry shrimp!
  • 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.
  • Delicious crepes, terrible service. Two tables that were seated after us were served and on their way before we got our meal.
  • 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.
  • You can usually catch Ethan Hawke here in the mornings during the week.
