Even my husband enjoyed the crepes. What a delightful experience. I wished we had time to try the soups and sandwiches but we were only visiting on the weekend. The ambience is ecclectic with art displayed on the studio side.it was a wonderful experience!

Fantastic, fresh food in a casual, comfortable environment. Sweet and savory crepes, plus a good assortment of fruits. Pumpkin spice latte was exceptional.

My husband and I stopped for lunch. We both chose a Rueben sandwich which was underwhelming, and overpriced considering it was small and came with no sides. However,we shared a chocolate dessert crepe with strawberries that was really good.

I don't know the answer, since it doesn't pertain to me, however, I noted their commitment to quality food. There may have been a sign regarding nuts, but I don't remember.
