My first time back in many years...
It is tge perfect place for a really nice salad, a yummy sandwich or a savory crepes and tasty crepes as dessert
It is conveniently localed on Espanola Way but a bit away for the lound and busy restaurant
After 4pm, a charming outdoor garden is opened for dinner

Thank Michel B

Perhaps the chef quit, but we had the worst experience that I can remember. It seemed like we were given food cooked by a 12 year old's first attempt at cooking.

We were there for 30 minutes before receiving our drink order and 1 hour before the meal. During that time, we watched the waiter leave and return with food purchased elsewhere for the kitchen - as they were out of certain items.

One friend noticed a cat in the kitchen as he returned from the restroom.

The french onion soup was diluted with water, no cheese, and no onions in the broth.

The 'crepes' were a spongy brown something with 1 piece of sliced ham inside.

After waiting an hour, the waiter returned to advise they were out of green beans and instead they offered instant mashed potatoes with the beef medallions.

The Escargot was an EscarNo.

No apologies, only excuses. We are very patient and rarely return food but it was impossible to eat. We were luckily only charged for drinks.

There are too many good restaurants in South Beach to waste your time here.

Stumbled upon this fantastic restaurant by chance and very happy we did. Situated on a quiet street the restaurant has a European feel with a nice French menu. Food and service were both very good. We had an excellent breakfast. Will eat here again.

The crepes are one of the main attractions at this charming cafe in Espanola Way Village. There are several, along with a range of salads and coffees. It's also a great place for happy hour. And the charming ambiance can make it a great spot for couples.

A genuine Normandie creperie here in the tropics. Excellent crepes, salads, wine and coffee. Lots of outdoor seating. Quiet, peaceful and sweet. Very nice attentive service and we were able to speak French! A lovely evening.
