“Dinner was delicious!”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

Our family was in Palo Alto and were looking for a quick bite. Crepevine was a great place to eat dinner! They had an expansive menu and their chicken shwarma was the best I have ever had. Their service is great and the food comes out quick. If you are in Palo Alto I recommend this restaurant to anybody for any meal, although their Crepes are AWESOME!!!

“Best breakfast in a restaurant”
Reviewed 26 May 2014

Experienced this restaurant on a really busy day (Mother's Day), but it was worth the wait. I had the crab cake eggs benedict and it was a massively filling portion. The price was reasonable (especially considering there was crab), and the taste was great. A mimosa made with fresh-squeezed orange juice (the machine was juicing non-stop on the counter) topped-off the meal nicely.

“Know what you're going for”
Reviewed 24 May 2014

An oddball restaurant where you have to get in line to order your entree, but waiters come by to replenish your beverage or ask how you are doing. The specialty is crepes, and they are hearty and well-made, tasty with unique combinations. Don't think French cuisine, with elegant sauces and tuxedoed waiters, and you will be O.K. You can dine outside, the windows open to let the sidewalk air in, and there are interesting beverages of choice as well. It is a bit overpriced, but of course the tip is minimal for minimal service. Both of us enjoyed it enough to return, but not for a meal where we want to be catered to (as in most restaurants in this high-tech upscale community).

“Thoroughly enjoyed my Greek crepe!”
Reviewed 10 May 2014

Loved the food here - 5 of us each had different crepes and all enjoyed them. With the potatoes and small salad it was a very substantial dinner for $10.95 - thought that was quite reasonable. Was surprised at some of the negative reviews.

“Cute menu but underwhelming food”
Reviewed 9 March 2014 via mobile

Three of us had brunch here. We had the California crepe, hue is rancheros, and French toast. Nothing, including the coffee, was remarkable and mouthwatering. Portions were large. After ordering at the counter, the food delivery to the outdoor tables was speedy and good. Food was just okay.
