I went here after my friend, Rachel, recommended it--and now I can't get enough. Everything tastes so fresh, and you can get a savory crepe and a cup of soup for $10. Great dessert crepes, and the fruit salad is definitely recommended. They have lots of cute touches, from fresh mint in your water to the paper cocktail umbrella on the fruit salad and the beautiful tea set if you order tea...it's just an amazing experience. I will admit that the servers are a little timid, but it's nice that they aren't over-the-top. Love this place. Also good for people watching on the corner of Clark and Foster.

Absolutely out-of-this-world. I frequently bring friends and guests here, and it's happened a couple of times that out-of-towners will request to go there more than once during a three-day stay in Chicago, even considering all of the amazing restaurants this city has to offer. This is an Algerian crepe restaurant, with things on the menu like the Crepe Marrakech (toasted almonds, raisins, baby spinach, caramelized onions, fresh mint, cream cheese, and sun-dried tomato tapenade), not to mention the amazing dessert crepes. The food is to die for, the service is friendly and just right, and the atmosphere is comfortable and fun with the Algerian touches. Not to mention the price point is amazing, considering how much food you get, and it's BYOB with no corkage fee, which will always save you some cash.

I went to this restaurant due to its rave review in Timeout Chicago. It's in the heart of Andersonville's Clark street where there are lots of shops and restaurants which makes parking a bear but before or after to-dos really easy. The menu has an extensive variety of crepes so you can have your breakfast type or your lunch/dinner types. I had the Icosium crepe: thin pancakes folded in a large triangle stuffed with veggies and cream cheese. You can add meet for, like, $2.99. I added the traditional meat that tastes like sausage with a little kick. There was a large assortment of crepes that were stuffed with fruit and seemed more pastry-like. I wanted to but was too full to have the "aziz" crepe that has strawberries and nutella and cream. Next time I will definitely try it. This crepe came with a bowl of soup. Topped everything off with mango juice. The service was great and attentive, there's Algerian music playing, and there's exotic Moroccan-esque decor. I will be back again.

What a fantastic place! From the outside, its blue fluorescent light sign does not hint at the culinary passport inside. The decor is definitely inspired by northern Africa as is the music, and I really enjoyed looking at the light fixtures and the interesting shadows they cast. The small tables are close together, all the better to seat the steady flow of diners in search of a delicious meal wrapped up in a light, crispy, flavorful crepe (even late on a Sunday, the place was mostly full). The menu is extensive, spanning the globe and even allowing you to design your own crepe or salad. For dinner, I had an overflowing crepe Marakkech, which was phenomenal -- all of the flavors were strong but very complimentary, and the cream cheese (which, I'll admit, made me a little leery when I saw it on the menu) melted perfectly and added a touch of salty sweet creaminess. My husband made his own crepe -- with all of the options available, the possibilities are nearly limitless! Each crepe comes with soup -- either a yellow lentil squash or a chicken and vegetable -- both of which needed salt and are not nearly as well flavored as the crepes that follow. For dessert, my husband had a crepe with dark chocolate (he polished it off despite being extremely full from dinner), and I had the crepe limone with a scoop of pistachio ice cream (it sounds like a weird combination, but the creamy deep sweetness of the ice cream contrasted really well with the sharp tang of the lemon). Overall, an incredible dining experience -- we will definitely return!
