My wife and I had breakfast there this past Sunday. My wife has a very limited diet. Starving Artist was able to accommodate all of her restrictions. It is hard to find a restaurant that my wife can actually enjoy a meal in, but we...More

Great atmosphere -sitting relaxing with a lavender latte while the kids share a strawberry patch crepe and hot apple cider. Bright, colorful and open and not too crowded at 2:30pm. Great selection of sweet and savory crepes, soup and salads.

Everything from organic juices to delicious coffees and teas. Delicious and creative crepes, a beautiful art gallery and free wifi. Live music to accompany the Sunday brunch. Gotta love it.

Stopped here for breakfast before hitting the mountain trails. FANTASTIC huge omlet, delicious hot coffee, quaint seating, outdoor seating (with your pup if you'd like) and very nice staff.

Interesting menu (salads and sweet and savory crepes), large prices and small portions. What really steamed us, though, was the traffic flow. You stand in line to order, and as you approach the register, you will be in someone's way. Whether it's a customer on...More

Be prepared for a line if it's lunchtime! We were hopeful that the food would be worth the wait and we weren't disappointed. Three of us enjoyed different "savory" crepes -- not rolled lengthwise which was a surprise - for lunch but perhaps we enjoyed...More

I don't know the answer, since it doesn't pertain to me, however, I noted their commitment to quality food. There may have been a sign regarding nuts, but I don't remember.
