Just down the block from the PEM made this an easy choice for a quick lunch. Two pre-made turkey and cheese sandwiches were filling but nothing special. Pleasant folks taking orders made the experience satisfactory enough that we would return for another quick lunch.

We ate here for lunch in between our tours. They were so friendly. The food was great and they have gluten free options. You're in and out in time to see all the sites.

Turkey club panini and bistro crepe. Food was freshly made to order and matched description. No airs or graces just a local cafe. Help yourself to soft drinks from the fridge, straws, cups, cutlery all available to serve yourself

Stopped by for a quick bite after visiting Peabody Essex Museum and Salem Witch Museum. Located within walk distance to both. Excellent breakfast croissant, crepes, and the most amazing Caesasr salad with a Tex-Mex twist. Highly recommend.

This was a great place for lunch as we toured the Peabody Essex Museum nearby. My turkey/bacon/guacamole wrap was light and fresh and delicious. My husband's veggie crepe was very nice. The staff was exceptionally nice.

Big place with lots of seating available. Stopped in for crepes and coffee with the family. Espresso was good, crepes were ok but not much filling so I was still hungry. The store has an all-glass front and right on the mall walkway so you...More
