This is my second time at Frodo's but first time to have brunch here. We arrived around 10:45 and was seated immediately. This is a crepe place . We ordered the ham and cheese crepe and the Barcelona 2000. Both crepes were good . Both orders came with sides and we chose the cut fruits and a salad . Great... More

I had a breakfast crepe that was HUGE! I loved the cleanliness and decorations, the fresh rose on my table, and the fruit in my water carafe. I will... More

First of all, I stopped in after a Google search. I didn't know that most of the menu was crepes. Unfortunately, I'm on am elimination diet. The staff was excellent in accommodating my needs. The food was yummy, fairly inexpensive. The decor was welcoming, sorry of like a walk through Pier one.

Great value crepe place where you'll be able to find a wide range of crepes both sweet and savory. Each comes with your choice of salad, fruit, pasta and more. Size is big but quality of ingredients isn't compromised at all. Price is reasonable. 2 ate with hot drinks for just under $25. Pic shows Santa Cruz 91

Well-appointed small restaurant with many choices of savory and sweet crepes. Generous portions (could be shared if two people could agree on fillings). Clean, helpful waitstaff, efficient service. Loved my meal!

Lovely experience lunching here with college friends. The unlimited fruit and basil scented water is the best on a hot day. The crepes are tasty and filling, fresh salads are a nice complement. They didn't pressure us to leave, either, so we had a great time catching up, and have planned to make this our go to place for future... More

I have always made it a point to savour their crepes when I am in Fremont. Their savory crepes, as also the dessert crepes, are awesome. And they are quite happy to serve you a fine crispy crepe ( which is the way I like them ). If you are there, dont miss it !

Ok, you think crepes and you think "stuffy French cuisine". Not at all. Informal setting, but the crepes are lovely. Terrific variety of dining options. We love this place.
