The ice cream (gelato) was good. The prices were a little high and the staff wasn't unfriendly, but didn't go out of their way.

Had a mixed berries crepe with a side of vanilla ice cream. It was a great alternative to same old traditional birthday cake. If I wasn't so full from the rest of the day, I would have tried other food as well. It all looks great. Will be back next time I'm in town. Cheers, everyone.

This little coffee house has great breakfasts! We enjoyed filled crepes and a croissant sandwich. Their croissants are homemade (and it shows!) and both the filled crepe and croissant were filling and delicious. The cappuccino was traditional (not sweet) and delicious, and the chocolate chai latte was absolutely delicious. Highly recommend!

Service was great, gelato good worth the visit. We did not order anything but gelato so I cannot comment on the food. Portions very generous. Will visit again.

After we discovered Chocolat Cremerie on the third day we were in San Diego we went every day. I sure wish we had found it on the first day. The food was great but the gelato was spectacular. My sister kept going back to the tiramisu flavor but it was a tough decision. I'm going to have to go back... More

I love chocolate & they have it! Too many choices of gelato, but the best was caramel & chocolate! Had to have 2 flavors each visit. Pastry looked really good. Wait staff very helpful and friendly. Offered sample tastes and place to sit down & eat dessert.

I had the spicy chocolate gelato and coconut gelato. They were both excellent. The spicy chocolate had the nice sweet to spice ratio. The coconut had chunks of coconut. It was the perfect adult Mounds bar in a gelato. Just may go back the morning we leave for breakfast

Our family stopped here after a movie matinee. This is a perfect location, walking distance to Hillcrest Cinema. There are some wonderful French food options like CREPES, but my husband went with the filling American PANCAKES with banana & macadamia nuts. My daughter & I had the NAPOLEON , which is delicious grilled cubes of eggplant, red peppers, portobello mushrooms... More

Simple, small, casual restaurant, indoor seating & a small outdoor seating area. Breakfast menu is plentiful & offers a great variety crepes, both sweet & savory. Gave the Nutella and banana crepes a try and they were very good. Ordering (order at counter, get # and sit) was quick during a mid week visit. Staff engagement was unremarkable. Gelato choices...
