I have been wanting to eat at this crepery for a couple years now, but never had the reason to go to Burlingame or any of their other locations until today.  We went around 12:45pm and parking was hard, but we ended up parking in a garage with meters for every spot.  Get this, a quarter buys you an HOUR of parking here…amazing compared to 8 minutes in LA.  It’s a lovely area, kind of like downtown Mountain View, Pleasanton, or even Old Town Pasadena, that kind of cutesy feel.  This area has a lot of shopping boutiques for all budgets, and has many restaurants too.

We waited in line for around 10 minutes since it was busy, we ordered and were seated.  Staff and waitress was very friendly, striking up a conversation with us right away.  The food came out quickly despite how busy they were, which was great.  I ordered the Tuscany with chicken breast, mushrooms, tomatoes, roasted almonds, provolone, feta and pesto and I opted for their herb crepe instead of a regular one.  The crepe itself is made with basil, it smelled and tasted SO amazing.  Also comes with a side of country fried potatoes and salad, which I didn’t care for too much.  Let me just say…best savory crepe ever.  I loved the provolone and feta cheese because it added a little saltiness to balance out the mushrooms and tomatoes, and the chicken was tender and juicy.  The almonds were the cherry on top for a crunch to add texture.  Just amazing.  The whole plate was $9.50 plus tax, which is a great deal.

My friends ordered the Florentine and Kyoto, which were equally amazing.  I liked that the florentine was light and the mozerella and glazed onions really went well together.  The kyoto with the peanut sauce on tofu was heavenly, and you definitely don’t really think of tofu going into a crepe, but this place pulls it off…no wonder they are top rated on Yelp!

I am definitely coming back here again.
