This sweet, eclectic restaurant serves crepes, curries, and Mediterranean platters that are fresh, tasty, and easy on the wallet. Crepes come with organic local greens and a dollop of sour cream. The breakfast crepe with Gruyère and ham is perfect any time of day, as is the Italian lentil crepe with pesto and mozzarella. The curries aren’t exactly Indian, but they are delicious. Wraps come with cucumber raita; bowls with mango, tomato, and extra-hot habañero chutney on the side. The coconut shrimp curry is a fragrant blend of ginger, garlic, cinnamon, cilantro, and Bengal spices; the slow-cooked organic chicken curry has a creamy, tomato-y base. For dessert, sweet crepes are stuffed with melted Nutella or bananas and chocolate. Excellent espresso is found here, along with some stiff lilikoi margaritas. Musicians often play beneath the twinkling lights in the courtyard seating area.
