French Happy Hour, every Tuesday night ! Every Tuesday, enjoy all savory crepes for $7 and all sweet crepes for $5 from 5pm until 7pm.   

Mrs. Q-Tip Says:  Saddens me to write this review.  The menu has changed and so has the quality. We were there on Tues. when they offer $7.00 crepes and the place was empty. Tho we had dinner but not the “Happy Hour discounted crepes.”

The Mr. had Mussels and I had caramelized onions, classic beef broth Onion Soup appetizers.  All entree crepes came with a small side salad.  We chose Crepe Suzette -caramelized citrus sugar, flambée with Grand Marnierse for our dessert crepe to share. The meal was just ok but not as good as it used to be. Mrs. Q had French Sparkling Wine.  Mr. Q had a glass of Red wine.  We asked about two other red wines on the menu and the waiter had to go to the back and after five minutes, said we don’t have those to offer you.

Should you want to try this restaurant, go on Tues. and take advantage of the discounted crepe prices. Mrs. Q thought, for a moment, she was back in France eating at an out door cafe.  Au revoir.
