I grew up in Cole Valley, so I have fond memories of this place. My mom used to take us here and then we'd grab ice cream at the drugstore on the way back up the hill. While the drugstore has been converted to a fancy health shop, Crepes on Cole remains. They've got all the standards you'd get over at Crepevine, but with a little more character. If you want to have brunch near the muni stop (and don't want to wait 2 hours for zazie), check out this place. Oh, and I believe there was a Josh Hartnett movie filmed here back in the 90s... (40 days and 40 nights...)

First trip to this crepery which serves other items on the menu besides crepe. The Eggs Benedict was very good, came with unseasoned cottage fries (chunks of potatoes). The Cole Valley crepe came as a large crepe folded over into a quarter filled w/cheese, tomato pesto sauce, ample avocado, mushrooms & spinach & the cottage potatoes. Overall, the food was ok, but we probably wouldn't be going back. At the end of the meal, a strand of long blond hair was hanging from the potatoes (we're brunette, as was the server who brought the food to our table), thus spoiling our appetites. The latte was wonderful. It's evidently a popular place in the Cole Valley neighborhood for couples, didn't see any kids. We didn't complain about the hair to management. Seriously, what would they do about it anyways? All you can do is pray you don't get sick. They're cash only.

Pros: Large area for dining, good Eggs Benedict

Cons: Parking, cash only, hair in our food

I live nearby, and have been several times before I finally gave up on it. A couple times the food was tasty and not very expensive, and the service was fine and prompt. The last few times I went the food was poor: one time the crepe I ordered was massively overcooked, the other time the eggs I ordered were undercooked and inedible.

The last straw was when I went and they totally botched our order. We were in a group of four, two got their orders immediately, the other two of us (who ordered similar items) didn't. We complained, the waitress glanced back into the kitchen and said ours would be right up. Ten minutes later there was still no sign, the waitress again claimed it would be right up. We asked to speak to the owner, who finally admitted that the order had never made it into the kitchen, and we had been blatantly lied to. He then made us wait another five minutes before he deigned to give us a refund, and refused to give a refund on the coffee that we had barely touched while waiting for the nonexistent food. Finally he made a big scene about how it wasn't his fault and tried to make us feel guilty for complaining.

Any of the other restaurants in the area is a better choice. We had previously used this as a backup spot for brunch if Zazie was too busy, but never will again.

Pros: sometimes good food for the cost

Cons: aggressively unpleasant servers and owner, generally shoddy cooking

This place has fantastic food and is really great for brunch, breakfast, or lunch. Almost every time I have had great food, nice service, and a friendly staff.

The last time I went was a different story though. This past sunday the two waitresses were incredibly rude. My girlfriend's mom's order was incorrect and they spent a couple minutes arguing about it with her. That's just not good customer service.

Overall though the place is great, I'll be going back many times.

Crepes on Cole not only offer yummy food and dessert crepes, but have other selections like pancakes, omlettes, salds, sandwiches, and soups. Everything is always fresh, and meals are pretty good portions. The prices are inexpensive, so its great. This is a nice little family owned cafe. People are warm and friendly and the service is fast. Everything is neat and tidy. You can always find a clean table to sit and relax.

I love this little crepery. It has a very casual atmosphere and great service. the counterpeople are always very friendly and give you time to order. And whenever the owner is around, he makes you feel very welcome. The prices are very reasonable and the food is very fresh. My favorite thing to order are the strawberry crepes. they are yummy. Parking can be a bit of a problem on the weekends, but it is well worth the trouble.

Get it all on a crepe at this neighborhood staple. The corner is bustling but the inside or outside seating is great on a weekend (busy) but better during the week.

Even the OJ is freshly squeezed and the Chicken Pesto is a must. No frills counter service though for those looking for tablecloths, go across the street.

PROS: Food and quantity
CONS: busy on the weekend

Love the place, love the crepes. Hearty big servings, and the food tastes great. Love the salads and the owner is the best! he is very friendly and I see him working there always at the register chatting with people.

i agree with another post saying that crepes are better in france--or hell, even the crepevine. this place has homefries that have yucky seasonings. the dessert crepes suck. i've been here at least 5 times, and it is always about the same. it's not an expensive place, yet it feels overpriced because of the food quality.

Everytime I make a trip back to San Francisco, I make sure to eat at this place at least twice.

The service isn't the best- you place your order, sit, and wait for your food to be brought to you (if you're lucky), or wait until your name is called.

The food is GREAT! These aren't crepes like you'd get at some foofy, Frenchy place. These are good, full-meal-type crepes. They're a bit on the greasy side (so are the home fries), but if you're a diner-lover, these will go over well with you. I recommend the ham & cheese crepes, but they have excellent vegetarian crepes, too.

I work in cole valley and have tried this resturant at least three times each has been worst than the last. To start the awning is covered in bird crap which is perfect because this resturant is crap. They have the worst crepes in the city and anyone who has ever been to france would laugh at them. They pair the lunch crepes with fatty home fries and even the salads were terrible. It is in a great location and the setup is very nice but the food and service is terrible. for real crepes go to crepes express

Editorial from

In Short
Palm pilot-toting locals munch on salads, sandwiches, pancakes, omelettes and -- of course -- crepes at this casual, bright corner eatery. Food is more reliable than innovative, although portions are generous and service…
