Créma always delivers - from the moment they opened their pastries coffees and quiches have been in point. There is always a line here on weekends so get here early to avoid the crowds.

We chose this restaurant for breakfast because of the outside seating (courtyard). The food was good, and fresh. Menu has some interesting choices. Service was underwhelming. Nice place, good meal, not disappointing, but also not something to rave about.
