Luna Crepes

Today we went for breakfast/lunch at Luna Crepes on March Rd with a friend and her 2 year old boy.
Luna's is more of a fast-food restaurant as you place your order at the counter and they bring it to your table for you. We've been here several times before, but not with the children.
The first thing we noticed was that there were only two highchairs, so that meant that Toast Girl had to sit on a chair. This isn't a big deal, but it also meant that no more families could sit down to eat with their little one.
Not particularly feeling like breakfast, I (Toast man) decided to have the chicken parmigiana on a panini with a ceasar salad. It was around 10$ from their (all-day) lunch menu. This was unfortunately a big mistake; I should have stuck with breakfast. The panini bread seemed really stale and the tomato sauce made it really soggy. The chicken was pretty decent though and the salad was OK.
Toast mom had the vegetarian omelet, which was on the (all-day) breakfast menu for around 10$. She wasn't very impressed either; the crepe was fairly rubbery and that the omelet was pretty bland.
Toast Girl had the eggs and cheese crepe (though Pancakes was on the kids menu) for 4.99$. It didn't include a drink. This was by far the best of all our meals; it was actually really good and fair sized for a kid’s meal. Toast Girl really enjoyed it! We also ordered her a "blue" gelato for dessert, which she just loved. They had an amazing selection of Gelato.
One thing that really stood out was their coffee selection; which included cappuccinos, espressos, lattes, cafe au lait's, etc. Toast Woman and I both got a Latte (despite her ordering a cappuccino), but we were really impressed! It was around 4$ each for a large.
Our bill was around 35$.
If you're sticking with sweet breakfasts (crepes+fruit) or coming for the coffee you won't be disappointed, but I wouldn't recommend straying from their specialties.

  1. I love crepes very much. Crepes are usually cooked with wheat flour. It is completely flat and usually have a filling or spread. In addition, crepes are entirely unleavened, while standard pancakes do have a leavener of some kind. Thanks for sharing crepes here with us.
