This is a review of Crepevine, located in Palo Alto, California. This is a comparative recap of our very yummy experience at this new-found location for this consumer reviewer!

Crepevine restaurant review

For the longest time we (my wife & I) have been visiting one to three regular locations for lunch on Saturdays after our morning runs. One of those locations is Le Boulanger Bakery in Menlo Park. I’ve enjoyed the food there, but the customer service has tested my patience at times.

Alas, during one of our forays out looking for someplace new to venture to, my wife and I hit up University Ave. in downtown Palo Alto and started walking up the street until something caught both our eyes just right. And that turned out to be Crepevine.

The reason I brought up Le Boulanger in MP is that the outline of how you order is the same, more or less.

At Crepevine, you walk in, either pick up the menu or read the beautifully transcribed chalk drawn menu on the wall, put in your order at the cashier and then having been given a number, go find a table. In Le Boulanger, you get a beeper/buzzer and you go pick up your order from a counter. In Crepevine, they bring it to you and have many folks floating around to tend to your requests or inquiries, if you need anything else.

The pricing for the menu items is very competitive and you won’t go broke eating here. But then the surprises kept coming.

We both ordered something different and enjoyed the ambiance of the eatery. That being that it doesn’t feel crowded with table or booth spacing to be set out very nicely. I’ve never been fond of settings that packs you in shoulder-to-shoulder with other clientele.
