“For a cool European cafe vibe on peachtree rd complete with gregorian statues this cafe does not disappoint whether early in the morning or late into the evening! Try their sweet or savory crepes or any of their enormous selection of delicious deserts in what seems like a mile-long glass cake case! And do have an extensive coffee menu (with optional adult additions) and beautiful hot chocolate for sipping. They have easy garage parking that is free with a stamp from the cafe. ”
