Had a wonderful Father's day breakfast in downtown Hilo this morning. Our daughter heard about this new restaurant at work and we are always looking for someplace new and different. This was really a delightful meal. I had the California Garden Veggie Crepe, with 2 eggs over medium and a side of hash browns and a glass of fresh-squeezed orange juice. We watched them squeeze the juice. The others were well-satisfied as well, and we have added Le Magic Pan to our list of favorite places to take visitors to Hilo. I liked the french music playing. I recognized "La Vie en Rose".

Went in with such expectations -- both because of ambiance and tripadvisor reviews. We were thoroughly disappointed and simply gaped at one another in amazement.

The food was OK, and a person might go back for that. But the service was simply the worst any of us had had in a half-dozen trips to Hawaii, on any island, at any restaurant. It was so inattentive and incompetent (but not rude) that we thought our server must be in a deep drug stupor.

We had a great time. The crepes were tasty, the wine reasonably priced and the two gals running it were great. Our Granddaughter cleaned her plate of the Chocolate dessert crepe, but we did help....

We ate breakfast here as it is right across from the hostel we stayed at, before our drive down to volcano. Great decision! Fun, quirky, and really great food.

We got there right as it was opening and the server said the chef hadn't shown up so she would try to make our breakfast crepes. She did an amazing job! We had eggs benedict crepe and a chicken and spinach crepe, I can't remember the exact ingredients. Both were very yummy though!

This place looks like it would be a lot of fun in the evening for a dessert crepe as there is a piano set up right in the dining room. Would love to come back!

I am only giving this restaurant 3 stars. I wanted to give it more but there were too many
cons. Our greek salad had only 1/2 the ingredients and they didn’t tell us that they were out of some of the ingredients. Did they think we wouldn’t notice? They did accommodate us by charging us half after we mentioned it. The crepes were not light and fluffy but hard and chewy. Very hard to cut. I have crepes in many, many restaurants and they were never like this. Service was good but it did take them over 30 min to make 2 crepes. Ambience was excellent and it had very quiet French music playing.
I really don’t think they know what they’re doing making crepes.
