Our book group of six people had dinner here on Friday night (Bastille Day). Even though they don't officially take reservations I had called and was assured they would hold us a table. We had cocktails, savory crepes, a bottle of wine and even dessert...More

Crepes are great. Nice combinations. Noisy like a good bistro/creperie should be. And the interior is really cute. Just went to Paris and it was pleasant consolation to go here after returning. Good brewed de-caffeinated coffee!! This is not always the case even in very...More

I personally can't imagine ordering anything but crepes from Fontaine, but they have plenty of other options on their brunch menu. I love their mimosas, kir, and ciders (they also serve a nice cup of coffee if you need it). The staff is wonderful and...More
