    After the tease of not being able to eat the pastries in New Orleans, the crepes were so yummy. They were all so good!

    Delicious! Dedicated GF area, cooler and crepe grill. They have a beignet crepe that is to die for! Almost made me forgot I couldn't have real beignets!

    Savory and sweet, both were delicious. They did not disappoint. Everything is made safe gluten free. I was so happy to start my morning off with such great food.

    Definitely celiac friendly but a little too greasy.

    Separate utensils & cooking element for gluten free crepes. I had a dark chocolate crepe & it was delicious!

    The food is amazing and I REALLy want it to be GF friendly. Unfortunately, it is not. First of all, the facility isn't GF, though they do have a GF space. My husband and I have reactions when we eat here. Upon further investigation, we found that they use cookie butter on the GF crepe maker, and cook bacon on a contaminated surface. Such a shame!!! We also once saw a lady use the same butter that she directly smeared on the gluten griddle on the gluten free griddle. When we asked her about it, she said, "Oh, the flavor of this one is so much better." Too risky if you have true allergy. So sad.

    I had the spinach and tomato crape with pesto. the crape was made with buckwheat. They have a dedicated GF crape wheel, and use separate untinsiles and pull ingredients from the cooler rather than the line.

    This is the cutest little cafe! They have their own prep/cook area! So very knowledgeable, owner is vegan and her daughter has a Gluten allergy. They take such good care even when they make their batters at night to insure there is no cross contamination (not even washing gluten dishes with the Gluten Free). Oh and the food was awesome! Definitely worth going to!!

    Delicious, seriously good. They can make almost anything gluten free and had GF desserts. They prepped the GF food separately and took my celaic seriously. Decor and atmosphere was eclectic and fun casual. I thought prices were quite fair as well and will make a point to be back when I am in NOLA again.

    I was here over MLK weekend 2016 and there was a sign saying they no longer serves vegan/gf options.

    I ordered the strawberry compote crêpe. She made the crêpe on a different grill, but the crêpe itself really needed a lot more cream. It was basically strawberries and the crêpe wrapper.

    Great GF options, staff very knowledgeable. Crepe is HUGE, enough for 2 people. Highly recommend.

    Very good. I was worried about XC, until I saw the separate cooking area for gf, and also separate cooler with some of the ingredients. She changed gloves frequently, and every time she touched anything to do with my crepe. I appreciate that. It's sad to not eat a beignet, but the crepe made me feel better, haha!

    Delicious and worth the wait. We thought they opened at 9:30 but have recently changed opening to 10:00. My kids loved their crepes as well!

    My kids loved the GF Nutella and fruit crepes. They warn there may be cross contamination, but everything is separate. We had no problems.

    Great crepes! Very helpful. Did warn against possible cross contamination but I didn't have an issue. There were only 2 choices that weren't gf.
