Say ‘bonjour’ to new restaurant

January 12, 2011 — by Pia Mishra and Apeksha Sharma

Apeksha’s take:

The smell of warm Nutella and baking batter fills the air in Bonjour Crepes, a small bakery located in Cupertino. The menu, which offers a range of sweet and savory crepes to grilled sandwiches and beverages, has the perfect recipes to satisfy any craving.

The restaurant itself is very quaint. Although it can be hard to catch it when driving down Stevens Creek Blvd., the atmosphere embodies the warmth of any normal cafe. The tables are set up perfectly for pairs to chat and watch the passing pedestrians. There are even sitting areas set up outside of the restaurant for when the weather is just right.

The service of the restaurant is very friendly. The girl at the counter is always smiling, and the restaurant is clean, with a few nice touches, like flowers and magazines on the tables.

From the dozens of crepes offered, I opted for a banana and Nutella crepe. Within minutes of ordering, a large crepe was set on the table with whip cream on the side. The only trouble was that this restaurant was self-serving, so the costumer had to get his or her own forks, knives, and napkins before eating.

Pia’s take:

Walking into Bonjour Crepes, I was immediately taken with its charming ambiance. Christmas lights brighten the warm yellow walls and a set of comfortable chairs and a sofa makes the cafe feel even more intimate.

The menu boasts a wide variety of crepes, including a rare selection of breakfast crepes, among the many other dessert crepes. I chose to indulge in a blackberry and whipped cream crepe for the reasonable price of $6.95.

Apeksha and I chose a cozy corner table with a nice view of the street. After a couple of minutes my crepe was delivered to our table by a cheerful waitress, but I did have to grab my utensils on my own.

The atmosphere is casual but quaint, and feels perfect for a date or quick snack with a friend. With good service, reasonable prices, and great food, Bonjour crepe will definitely be a recurring delight for my sweet tooth.
