    As others have stated, be aware of GF options vs. non GF which are designated on the menu. My breakfast crape was good, stole some of my son’s Nutella dessert crape which I think is about as tasty a crape as could be made. Good presentation, if that makes a difference. My wife enjoyed her sandwich. They had a number of GF breakfast crapes and dessert crape options. Lots of fresh fruit drinks, smoothies, and fancy fruit bowl options etc...

    Designated crepe makers here, however, this cafe is NOT 100% GF, as some believe. Prior to my arrival, I messaged owner directly to ask if cafe was 100% GF. She responded that it was; however, it was not until after I was sick and I contacted her again that she said that vegan options are NOT GF. Make sure to clarify during ordering and before eating that ONLY GF ingredients and kitchen space is used to prepare food. On a positive note: Food is cooked to order, healthy and delicious. The owner was flexible by messaging me when her cafe reopened, after we came when they were suffering from a mechanical problem in their kitchen.

    Had the super bowl and it was amazing, a little worried as it comes in a coconut dish and with a wooden spoon since wood is so porous and not really safe but they do have to go containers so I will be getting mine in that when I go back because I will definitely go back. The presentation and taste of the bowl was amazing.

    Sweetest little place for food and staff! We didn’t look at hours and arrived at 9am when they open at 10:30am on Fridays. The owner opened the door, invited us in, and mad us the most delicious, beautiful açaí bowl ever. Big enough to share! We were so thrilled with food, service, and her company we took the family back later that day for some savory crepes. Amazing! Everything gf and wonderful. Large portions so share b

    It is definitely a celiac friendly place, but would not reccomend buying the savory crepes. I ordered a chicken alfredo crepe, which tasted like curry. My daughter orederd a turkey and vegatable crepe, which was filled which ingredients that weren't listed. If I were to come back, I would probaly order a sweet crepe or an acai bowl

    We really enjoyed our GF crepes and acai bowls. Service was a little slow but they make each item to order so you have to expect that. A few tables outside made for a great meal.

    The food was great. As others have said, their GF crepes are excellent. My husband and I also shared an acai bowl, which was also delicious. The woman working at the counter let me look at the packaging of certain things. (i.e. the granola, the coconut) in order to see whether they were safe to add to the acai bowl. As a heads up, the granola they use states on the packaging that it's manufactured in place that also processes wheat, so, to be safe, you should avoid that as a topping on the bowls. Overall, the staff appeared to be very aware of dietary restrictions, and went out of their way to make sure that I felt comfortable eating there. The best part is that post-eating there, I felt great (which is always the true test of how celiac-friendly a place actually is).

    This restaurant offers entirely gluten free crepes, with a variety of sweet, tropical and flavorful savory crepes. They also make acai bowls and sell delicious gelato (that you can put on your crepe if you want). Staff are super friendly and concerned about any dietary restrictions that you may have. Great little find.
