Best crepes great variety, something for everyone!. Only go if you love crepes & fresh food. We drive from San Jose just to eat here, plus they have the best Bloody Mary in the world... complete with dilly beans! My favorite crepe is the seascape, which is crab & shrimp. But the creole sauce they serve is to die for so I love that one too! I love the patio seating, however I wish they had heaters it gets cold in the shade. I hve never had bad service at The Crepe Place, most servers seem like college students and are fun with a great attitude! I love this place, we come with or without kids and are comfortable here either way....Our picky kids always find something they like here.
Crepe Place has great food, service, ambiance!.
I humbly disagree with the review from redbobsled. It's like we're talking about 2 different restaurants! I've eaten at the Crepe Place 3 times the past 12 months, and each time, the food was GREAT! Variety, quality & taste -- they've got it! How can anyone call it bland?
I've also never had poor service. One of the 3 times the sevice was ok; the other 2 times it was very fast!! And always friendly & helpful w/ recommendations. The turkey crepe w/ veggies, herbs & cheese is my favorite. Be sure to try the wild dessert crepes too! I also really like the patio seating: there's a good variety of sunny/shady spots, pretty plants and a fountain.
Downside 1: the Crepe Place costs a little more than average, but I don't go often, so it's worth the splurge! Downside 2: parking's weird (can't park in lot behind restaurant?!)
good atmosphere, otherwise mediocre.
This was a place I used to go all the time when I first moved to Santa Cruz, but it seemed to go downhill recently. Most of the crepes are just too bland, and the service is absolutely awful. Unbelievably awful. It usually takes about 2 hours to eat a meal here (another major reason I stopped eating here).
That said, the outdoor eating area is beautiful - one of the more romantic places to dine in Santa Cruz..and the breakfast crepes (served only for brunch on weekends) are usually quite good....however, the slow and not so intelligent or friendly service is still a problem at those times.
Pretty good crepes!. The dark wood Victorian interior and lovely outdoor garden seating are charming and romantic, the crepes (both savory and sweet) are gigantic and delicious, service is good and the prices are (mostly) reasonable. I have not sampled their soups or salads yet because I cannot resist the draw of the crepe! So good....
