“French cafe in South OC, great food”
Reviewed 5 March 2012

When you walk in the door, you feel like you are in a family bistro somewhere in France. The food is extremely good overall. The service is good but sometimes a bit slow if they are crowded

“Nothing Special”
Reviewed 2 March 2012

Lulu's is located behind a gas station and the restaurant is small with indoor and outdoor seating. The cream of mushroom soup is delicious, however the crepes with chicken are served with canned instead of fresh chicken and all food was served at room temperature, I prefer my food served hot. The wait staff are pleasant however slow in taking your order and delivering your food.

“Exceptional! Worth a special trip”
Reviewed 22 November 2011

Lulu's creperie is exceptional. Quaint and charming despite its strip mall location next to the 405. I agree with other reviewers that Sunday's live singer (in the morning for brunch) was very tasteful without being too loud to drown out conversation in this small venue.

Any number of breakfast crepes are available to suit every taste. Many other non-crepe options are also available. The Breakfast croissanwich is highly recommended as is the breakfast burrito.

“A hidden gem”
Reviewed 6 October 2011

Tucked away in an industrial park, behind a car wash is this lovely little restaurant. Wonderful food, great atmosphere. Go on Sunday to hear the Jazz Singer. Fantastic. Also music another weekend nights. They have a small patio that is lower than the street so you feel hidden away. You might never know about this place unless someone told you about it.
So glad a friend told me. It can get busy on the weekend, so go early.
Open every day, BUT Never on Monday!
Tres bien!

“Secret Hideway”
Reviewed 24 September 2011

Are you looking for that special place where you feel welcomed as one of the family... Try LuLu's. My wife and I have been celebrating our Anniversary there pretty much each year for the past decade. The restaurant's namesake is still helping out there but she has passed the torch to Lino quite flawlessly. When Jean Claude passed away several years LIno was inspired to bring a creperie like the one he ran in Carmel right here to South Orange County. Great food, reasonable prices and most of all a wonderful experience. There is usually some kind of entertainment most evenings. Check with the restaurant ahead of time.
