A charming young French couple serving charming French crepes. Nicely done, and in nice weather a very pleasant spot indeed. In a strong cold southerly bluster, though, it's best to be dressed warm! And hang on to your crepe! They are delicious!

Was a nice crepe to complement the coffee beside it. The banana and Chocolate was nice but the Lemon Curd was the best.
