“Best Wine & Tapas Bar in Town!”
Reviewed 6 July 2014 via mobile

I am a local and go here quite often! They have a great wine and food selection. They even have dinner sized portions of some meals if you are looking to have a full dinner. If you are visiting the area, Crema is a must!!

“Bacon Strips!”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

Great coffee and bacon strips served in cones. Bacon and Cheddar scone served with a Honey Butter were also really good.
Don't overlook this place if you're in Pacific Grove, Ca

“A GREAT JEWEL IN DOWNTOWN PACIFIC GROVE”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

This place is raising the bar for Pacific Grove and we do have some really great restaurants. Open in the AM for great coffee and rolls and then the wine bar opens at 4pm. The dinners are delicious and Tami and her team treat you like family. A great place for the locals and for the tourists to get that really home town feeling.

“Good vood, very casual.”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

Very laid back and casual but great food and some decent beers and wines available. Friendly staff. Soft live music out front and located in the old downtown. Overall a good choice for anyone. Well-behaved kids would work but its not a "family" type place from what I saw.

“Great place to recharge your batteries”
Reviewed 16 February 2014

Crema opened last year in a small Victorian house on the main drag of Pacific Grove. The coffee, teas and wines, snacks and service are all good, and the prices reasonable. What makes Crema so wonderful, however, is the use of the small, interestingly decorated upstairs rooms as seating areas. Rather than one large public space, the rooms feel cozy and personal, encouraging conversation and relaxation.
A great place to snack, have a cup, and recharge.
