Being a vegetarian I am generally skeptical going to American breakfast places since there will not many options. But this place surprised me with good number of options. They serve such big portions that even my guy was struggling to finish. I ordered a dish called Mediterranean which is basically open sandwich. I chose sour bread and it was perfect. Soft and tinge of sourness. Fries was good as well. In short I was super satisfied with this place. One word of caution, we went on weekend and it got crowded after 10.30. so be prepared to wait in line! Lastly, I loved there colors neat menu board. PS: I was too busy enjoying food and forgot to click food pic.
A nice place to do weekend brunch. Come early because most of the time they always have long lines, especially during breakfast/lunch time. Despite the name, they dont only serve crepes. They also have omelettes and egg benedicts, but if you really want crepes they have savory and sweet with variety of ingredients. My fave was probably the San Francisco crepe. It has smoked salmon, spinach, dijon and dill havarti. I dont really usually eat spinach, but they managed to make it tasty. Another time I tried the New Orleans eggs benedict. Its crab cakes on an english muffin with poached eggs and spicy Cajun hollandaise. Seriously, thats just perfection.
Food quality is below or about average but they serve a lot of fries and salad. I think price is reasonable ($11-14 + tex for a plate) but their food is far from healthy. The Manager operates in a very interesting way; he often requests guests for moving into smaller tables or even to the bar impolitely, who are already sitting at a table. Maybe he wants to get more people at expense of being rude to his guests. I would suggest checking out other restaurants; probably they offer better experiences than Crepevine. This restaurant is not the worst one in this street but it is definitely below average in my taste.
Casual cafe that is a small local chain (I have been to the other locations I know of in SF and Berkeley as well). A wide variety of savory and sweet crepes, salads, and breakfast fare are offered. Beverages include small bar/wine options as well as coffee/espresso drinks. This is an order at counter place that will then bring food to your table. I have always had good meals here and portions tend to be on the slightly late size. Depending on when you go, it can be noisy/crowded, but I have never waited long and can still carry on conversation at the tables, which are spaced fairly close together.
One of my favorite locations for bringing out-of-towners. The food is very good, and portions are quite large. In addition to crepes (obviously), there are breakfast-style scrambles and sandwiches served all day. The prices are surprisingly reasonable. Right on University Ave, it is a perfect match for an evening walk around Palo Alto. Despite getting pretty crowded during meal rushes, I havent had any problem waiting for seating. Parking is another story though. Try to get in early to find a street space.
Walking into this restaurant had a great feel, but quite an overwhelming menu. If you like places with tons of options this might be a good place for you. Too much in my opinion. The Californian crepe was pretty good, but not the most flavorful. The desert crepe. Wow. Delicious. By far my favorite part of the meal. The soda was a tad bit flat too. Id rate it higher because I was satisfied, but in the end my meal just didnt have the flavor I expected, and soda being flat is a huge problem for me.
Between this Crepevine and the one in Mountain View, it takes the cake. Service is stellar and their portions are huge! They also have beer and wine. Personally, I like the granada salad with grilled chicken, whenever I crave a salad or need a nutritious meal before a 15k Crepevine is my go-to. They are also great for brunch on the weekends and their darling menu board is quite colorful. If youre craving brunch, crepes, homestyle potatoes, or a simple grilled chicken salad-try it!
The food is good, with decent prices and good portion sizes. The service is where they falter, though. After being corralled into a line right through the door, you have to deal with the greeter, who is pushy, pretty abrasive, and not helpful. I ordered a dessert crepe once, which they said theyd have prepared fresh once we told them we were ready. Sounds great, until we told 3 separate people we were ready and eventually left without our dessert. Pretty unfortunate.
Three months ago I did go to Crepevine and I have a breakfast early in the morning and I did have diarrhea for three days and three days ago I did go again I thought I should give them another chance and have a lunch with my girlfriend and both of us have a diarrhea and we have only one bathroom in the house so I had to send my girlfriend to our neighbor so she can use there bathroom . food and service was terrible save your money take your business somewhere else
Kudos to the cooks. The food is tasty...however their seating and order taking system is terrible. You enter and immediately have to order from a menu of dozens of items. Pressure. Then, you are left to standing there and wonder if anyone will seat you. We had to find our own seating in the masses. After you sit, no one comes around to see if you need anything else. We wanted to order more and had to flag someone down to take our order.
Food: 4 Decor: 4 Service: 4 Came here to grab a weekday lunch with a colleague, who worked nearby. Tuscany scramble, 10 Chicken breast with mushrooms, tomatoes, roasted almonds, provolone, feta and pesto ~Pretty good. Everything worked well together, and it was quite filling. The restaurant does get pretty busy, but we were lucky enough to grab seats immediately. Parking can be quite difficult to find.
Great service! The staff are so hospitable here, and it is very comfortable. Plus, the setup of ordering and paying before you sit down is great. It provides the convenience of getting fast service, with the comfort of a regular service restaurant (including giant booths). On top of that, the food is delicious. You really cant go wrong! Pro-tip: Go for a crepe; dont second guess it.

Im French and lived most of my life in France, and to me those crepes are actually pretty decent. This place is awesome for breakfast as well, I love their eggs Benedicts. The only thing missing is buckwheat crepes. Service at the counter and served at your table. Staff is nice and quick. The wait for a table is usually not too long, 10-15min.
Im always disappointed every time I am stuck going to a crepevine and this location is not an exception to the rule. Their potatoes are not made to order and usually soggy. I was also very dissapointed at their unwillingness to go off menu in order to satisfy the customer this most recent trip. I wont be going back anytime soon, if ever again.
Maybe I shouldnt have ordered a frittata at a place called crepvine but just because I did was no reason for the universe to go against me. Really bad and flavorless :-( even the house potatoes were dry and needed seasoning. I ordered a soy milk cappuccino and the waitress didnt know which was mine between the two on our table. :-(
