Santa Monica Pit Stop

Thursday night was my last meal in LA… then I was heading on home to good ol Philly. To laze the early evening away, we headed down to the Third Street Promenade in Santa Monica for a bit of the old beach time. After walking around a bit to all the shops and such, we stopped for some eats at Cafe Crepe. The place is pretty cute, inside and out, and very euro.

S went with the thincrust pizza with eggplant and squash. It was pretty good… seemingly healthy. The veggies had a bit of a smoky flavor to it.

Mmmm… a giant side of $2 fries. Simple, hot, salty. Pretty good stuff.

I went with a savoury crepe – ham and cheese, nothing complicated here. It was good. Nothing too thrilling, but perfectly acceptable. It was quite a lot of food, even though it doesn’t necessarily seem like it.

The service? Eh… not too hot. We sat there for an extremely long time before anyone came over and gave us a menu or asked what we wanted to drink. And the food took even longer. Everyone else was getting their food except for us. And the servers aren’t exactly the nicest. They’re a bit loud and rude, but honestly, I don’t know that they don’t realize that that shouldn’t be the norm. I think they need a bit of a lesson in customer service. I bet the sweet crepes were good, but we just didn’t have room.
