If you want crepes, this is the place to go. With so many different types of crepes on the menu (savoury, sweet and dessert), it's hard to choose one. The crepes are generous in size and are very filling, making for a good, hearty lunch....More

Chez Machin is a small restaurant located in the hip Hawthorne district featuring crepes and other French dishes. Though I was not accustomed to the robustness of their crepe, the filling was remarkably good. I tried the Basquaise with prosciutto along with a pear salad...More

Tried a Groupon. Food was wonderful. Arthur, our server was excellent. Portions were good sized. The eggs Benedict is outstanding. Excellent flavor. Small intimate setting with a good sized covered patio. Good experience. Mimosa's are 4 before noon. Parking is tough off of Hawthorne.

While Chez Machin's food is based on the local and rural cuisine of France, it has grown and changed with the times and culture of the Hawthorne neighborhood. Chef Seth Neeser took over the kitchen in 2008. Since that time he has continued to improve and update the menu to keep up with the times. Keeping things fresh, current, local, and delicious is on the top of our priority list.
