The place is always reliable, and the staff always polite.
I'm here on a semi-regular basis.
I fully plan to cheat tonight, and have a chocolate crepe. I like chocolate, darn it.
Would be nice if they had diet sodas - the Great Diet Soda Conspiracy leaves it, like so many other places, having only Diet C_ke.
Yeah, I know - another dork who orders chocolate desserts and a diet soda the same night. We all have our weaknesses!

I love this place! I've walked by a few times and have always seen the place lit with people from morning to night. First time trying the place this weekend and I'm hooked! Too bad I don't live in SF or I'd be here everyday! =)
The prices are so reasonable and the portions are perfect. Not too much to leave you in a food coma, but just enough that you are full. Delicious!

I've come to this place many times after work to pick something up to go. I don't like pesto much but their chicken pesto crepe is so good. Plus you get a generous portion of home fries with it as well.
The place is cozy if you want to sit in there and eat, and people read the paper, and mess around with their computers, so you are certainly able to linger for a while if you'd like.
As for the dessert crepes, I prefer crepes a go-go. Can't beat em.

We had a nice brunch at Crepe House. The staff was very friendly. The chicken pesto crepe was great. Portion sizes are large. The house coffe there is great. Out door tables are nice on a good day. Excellent value. I wish the potatoes had a little more seaonings and flavor. All around great place.

Stopped by for the first time last night and tossed down the Miami Heat (chicken, avocado, salsa) and a banana, brown sugar crepe. The crepe itself is very light and tender, the fillings for my dinner crepe were solid. The bananas in the dessert crepe needed to be ripened a bit more and I would have preferred homemade whipped cream. Tasty eats at a nice spot....

I LOVE this place! The first time I went here a couple of years ago, I went at night and hated it. There were people harassing me outside, and the place felt seedy. A friend dragged me back during breakfast hours and the scene was totally different. The service is quick, the food plenty, and while the crepe is too stuff with ingredients to be really called authentic, they are yummy! Now, I'm there every weekend morning to eat breakfast.
For the reviewer who commented on the staff, they are very friendly to regulars (and it doesn't take long to be one). The non-smiling thing is a cultural trait, you should overlook it, after all, this is San Francisco! It matters more that they remember your face, and are very accommodating with any request. Trust me, I'm there every weekend!

I ordered the Strawberry dessert crepe. The order taker asked if I wanted Nutella with it. I said, ""No Nutella"" twice. When the crepe arrived, it was covered with a generous drizzle of Nutella! The worst part is that I'm allergic to nuts, so I couldn't enjoy the crepe.
My friend ordered the New Orleans crepe, so I had some of his. The potatoes were dry. The crepe itself was a bit oily.
Both crepes came in smaller portions than other crepe houses like CrepeVine and Squat&Gobble. The orange juice was fresh, sweet, and tasty though.

This is a great restaurant. I have been eating here for years. The service is great and the crepes are to die for. They also have Wireless Internet service (it's great because I'm always working). Their service is with Surf and Sip. It's a great service and the speed is awesom!e It's faster than my DSL at home and only a third the price. The cafe has a great atmosphere and friendly employee's (family owned).
