I am glad to see something other than pub fare on Manitou Ave. My first visit was about 3 months ago, and I have been back probably 12-15 times since! My current favorite is the "Farmer" - chicken, spinach, tomato & goat cheese in a crepe! Mmmmm.... Heck, they even serve burgers now for the gastronomical philistines... ;-)
The perfect dive! Great food and fabulous service. The owner is a little nuts but is rarely there.
Great meal, great ambiance and wonderful live music.
Enjoyed a wonderful evening by the creek on June 17th,2010. Terrific food-waitress was very friendly and attentive. Ted playing the guitar and singing. It was magical!! Lovely place-don't miss it if you are in the area!!!
My wife and I thought we'd try a new restaurant for my Fathers Day meal. So I suggested we try Coquette Creperie, based on the menu I found online. As we both have been in the restaurant business, we base our opinions and critiques from a professional standpoint. If you want to be blown away by some out of this world cuisine, this is the place for you. Everything we ordered from the baby portabello mushroom appetizer to the Latin Lover crepe, to the lavender/chocolate mousse dessert crepe, tantalized our tastebuds and had us begging for more. Even the iced tea was phenomenal. The prices are very reasonable and you definately get your money's worth. Kudos to Turu and her Mom (owners) and Scott the Chef.
When Poor Richard's is open you can get good food. Unfortunately then seem to have the same non-cleaning policy as Poor Richard's - tables are always dirty - hire some buspeople with disinfectant spray! The tables are pretty close together - go here if you REALLY like people.
We (me and some local friends) live locally and really tried to give these folks our business. Some of the basic dishes - like buffalo burgers - are ok. But, they drop the ball big time on service. We have tried to give them the benefit of the doubt because we want local businesses to succeed. But, we are capitulating. The restaurant and bar staff lack customers relationship skills almost entirely. We tried to go there and have a good time, but they just weren't up for it. I hope they get it dialed in at some point.
Haha! My name is Jaclyn Grossfield and I work in public relations at Noodles & Company. We think the same thing about our Web site, and we're actually in the process of rebuilding noodles.com now. Thank you for naming us 'Best Noodle Bowl' for the fourth year in a row. Again, I totally agree with you that, "nothing tastes better than hot, saucy noodles on a crappy day."

Love the mix and match option that is their menu. Lot's of food for a great price. Thumbs up for the good ol' American mac 'n' cheese and their Asian noodle dishes (in all their varieties).
GREAT FOOD...Never a problem with the wait staff, they have always been great.
Incredibly rude waitstaff. Experienced poor behavior on more than one occasion. Will never eat there again. They are certainly lucky there isn't much else nearby otherwise they'd be out of business instead of thriving on poor attitude and behavior.
Awesome food! Sometimes in the summer you might have to wait a little bit it is worth it. Oh and did I forget to tell you about the cute town it is in? Awesome place to take the family.
Great food, INCREDIBLE LOCATION, arrogant staff . Past their prime?
Cmon, Great ride, Beautiful setting, Good food. Arrogant wait staff. Past their prime.
Get the cinnamon raisin toast! It's amazing!
I was recently diagnosed with a gluten allergy (celiac disease) and it's been kind of a nightmare trying to find a restaurant with appetizing gluten-free fare. Following my first meal at Coquette Creperie, I realized that this gluten allergy business wasn't going to be so bad after all. The food is absolutely delicious and the variety of tastes from crepe to crepe never allow boredom to enter into the equation. The atmosphere is inviting and comfortable and the staff have always been friendly and extremely attentive.
i was afraid to try a "gluten free" crepe but my partner is very intolerant of the gooey stuff so I gave in...glad I did. kinda magical filling in my bada bing (spicy italian sauce and great sausages) and we even had to try a dessert with fruit filling..a few cocktails later we realized we just didn't want to leave the cool comfort zone. ..who needs gluten anyway
Been there several times. Clientele a bit rough, lots of F bombs. Food was hit and miss. My egg/sausage sandwich was to die for the first time I went, then never came close in later visits. Burnt toast. How in the hell can a place that's been around this long burn the toast. Their other location in Gleneagles also burns the toast. An amateur operation.
The make your own salad choices are superb. I"m not a big fan of the usual boring green stuff that's normally thrown on the table, so this offering makes my day.... try it with grilled chicken, chick peas, roasted almonds and peppers.... sesame seed dressing to top it off.....hmmmmmmm....I actually walk about a mile from my office to get this for lunch about once every other week.
