This is a tiny spot right near the heart of Little Italy in San Diego and just minutes from the large hotels. Very authentic crepes that are as delicious as they are attractive. There's only a few tables and the atmosphere is casual. You'll feel like you are in a non-touristy part of Paris.

Had breakfast 2 mornings. Ordered the strawberry/banana filled crepes & a latte. Went right when they opened at 8 a.m. so there were only a few people. The waiter was friendly and the food was delicious

We found them at the Saturday market - we had a couple of crepes, they were so good. We were fortunate to find the restaurant on the last day of our trip - stopped in for breakfast. Sat outside, it was so enjoyable, food, service and atmosphere, go you won't be disappointed.

We went to Fabrison's because of the extensive menu posted online. When we arrived, the menus presented were very sparse with limited options. The food was well prepared and served efficiently, but the choices anticipated did not exist. Food was slightly overpriced.

And not too big! It was great to have one crepe stuffed with fresh fruit and a berry compote and not be overwhelmed by the amount of food. This is a small cafe, only open for breakfast and lunch. The servers speak French too which is great in a French bistro. You can have spelt or wheat crepes. Yum!

We had a groupon for our group but also ordered off the menu as the groupon was for 4 and we numbered 6. The groupon meal was good but the off the menu items were great. The disappointing part of the meal was the service - friendly but not professional in that the little things that make a dining experience... More

My family was able to discover this place 2yrs ago while looking for a brunch place before we left san diego. We fell in love instantly. The place is rustic and intimate. Needs a little help with inside temperature because it gets warm. The kids loved both their first savory&dessert crepes. The Alison crepe is no longer on the menu... More

We ate a pleasant lunch on a Thursday. I had a great tasting buckwheat savory crepe. The bechamel and balsamic sauces gave it a subtle sweetness. The crepes are enough to fill you up. There is both inside and outside seating which adds to the French ambience. The seating space is a bit limited.

Walking from Little Italy and spotted this gem. We have frequented the location in Coronado so went in to ensure it was the same owner. Same owner, same menu. Returned the next morning for breakfast and enjoyed the Hungry Bear Crepe which contains sausage, bacon, ham, egg, cheddar, spicy harissa sauce and side aioli. We requested the Buckwheat Crepe which... More
