Charming little spot. Stopped in for a light lunch. The French onion soup was the best we've ever had. We finished with the Limoncello dessert crepe that was big enough for two to share. Good service and a very nice dining experience.

Like another review said, don't let the strip mall fool you. The place is cute and homey and doesn't feel like you're in a strip mall once you're inside.

Don't let its strip mall location fool you. Binos has superb food, great adult beverages, and phenomenal service. Pricing is fair for quality and quantity. Go, enjoy.

Quaint little restaurant in Hillcrest. I went for dinner so I didn't have the Crepe's however they're food is great. I'd definitely recommend this place for couples or a girls night out.
