Crepes Francaise for lunch- this restaurant is CLOSED.

Mike recently did a review of the dinner we had at Crepes Francaise but we also went to lunch there a few months ago — Mike’s mom took us there for my birthday. I don’t know why I didn’t do a review of it then. I’m also not sure why I don’t have any pictures of what Linda had for lunch!

Mike started with a flavored iced tea that was all natural and delish.

I had an awesome iced coffee with chocolate and whipped cream. It was sort of like a coffee chocolate egg cream. Super yummy.

I love quiche so I had theirs, along with a salad. The salad dressing here is really good, unlike the salad dressing at La Baguette. The quiche is equally delicious as La Baguette’s.

Mike had a mushroom burger and some fries. They don’t skimp on the mushrooms.

For dessert I had a nutella crepe. It was very good. And it was almost twice as expensive as the ones at Paris Crepe.

The food at Crepes Francaise is great. The service is also excellent. I don’t go here just for crepes for a couple reasons. For one thing, they are more expensive than Paris Crepe, and they only have a few kinds of crepes (CREPES Francaise is not really an appropriate name for this restaurant now that I think about it). Paris Crepe has more than 20 different crepes. Also, Francaise is more of a fancy sit-down place (altho from time to time they have a cart outside and sell stuff to passersby) and when I want a crepe I want to be sorta quick about it.

Also, as Mike mentioned in his post, the ambiance needs some work. The inside is nice. I like it a lot in there.  But the outside makes it look like they aren’t ever open. They really need to set the tables out there.  Also piping out some of the music from inside would help. It would be especially nice if it were French music. Also, no website? Really?

Mike is a much harder grader than I am. I wouldn’t have given it a B-,  maybe a B+ or even an A-.  My only real complaint is the outside ambiance and the dessert crepe prices. I understand the highish prices for the crepes, tho, it’s a nice restaurant and the prices reflect that.
