Named "Best Breakfast in OC" by Daybreak OC …
The crepes at Lulu's are the BEST I have had outside of Paris! My favorites are the Chocolate-Hazelnut Crepe (i.e. Nutella) with fresh strawberries and the Irish -- a delightful crepe flambe with Baileys Irish Cream, bananas, and fresh strawberries.
For dinner, I have tried (and loved) both the La Mer (seafood crepe) and the Francaise (chicken & portobello mushrooms).
The crepes at Lulus are the Brittany-Style -- if you haven't tried them yet -- they are just like you would get in Paris!
Not recommended anymore.
It was the first time that I was back to Lulu's Cafe, now Lulu's Crepererie in 2 years. The chef is not the same. If the decoration has not changed, it is not the case of the food. Before it was not a creperie, now it is. I do not know where the "chef" learned how to do crepes, but he should go back to school.
First and foremost, he does not cook them enough. The dough is far from the real stuff and moreover the salty ones are swimming into their sauce (it at least cover the poor taste, or add taste to the tasteless dough). The sweet ones are dry and the dough has no taste either.
Please give up and cook juicy hamburgers instead.
Great place for a charming and affordable night.. WoW! The dessert was fantastic!!! Do yourself a favor and order Le Pomme Crepe! Also, I would suggest visiting on a Friday or Saturday night for the free live entertainment. The Violinist was very good and added to the pleasant atmosphere.
MmmMmmm. This place is great! I love the live music and french countryside feel! Mmm delicious crepes!
Yummy Crepes!!. This was a great restaurant. The smoke salmon crepes are fabulous and soo good! I'll def be going back again!
Wonderful Food ---- Exceptional Entertainment.
My husband and I went to Lulu's this weekend for the first time. Several friends had highly recommended it, so we decided to try it. We had the BEST time. The violinist there is top notch --- she has toured with major Broadway musicals and is truly exceptional! At the next table from us was a retired director from the LA Philharmonic and a renowned cellist himself who commented on the exceptional talent of this lovely lady!
If she wasn't so talented, I would have started with the food! We started our dinner with a lovely Chardonnay -- and to our surprise, a complementary Pate Platter was served with our wine --- delicious! We then had the French Onion Soup --- some of the best I have ever tasted in the United States. It took me back to my travels in France. We then had the Salmon (tender, delicious!) and the Osso Bucco (absolutely perfect!). We finished our dinner with Creme Brulee. This was one of the best creme brulees I have had. I cannot believe it took us so long to go to this quaint, family-owned restaurant. You should try it --- it won't disappoint!
Please accept our apologies for being treated in any manner other than with enthusiam and gratitude that you would call and consider us for your dinner venue!
We are certainly reviewing our phone etiquette with all members of our staff to make sure our callers are treated with the respect and dignity that they deserve,
My New Favorite Place!!!.
My friends and I went there on Saturday night --- and were blown away by both the food (we went for the crepes) and the entertainment. Since we wanted to try the Irish Crepe (a dessert made with Baileys Irish Cream, Bananas, Strawberries --- and filled with Nutella), we decided to have something different for dinner. Between us, we shared the Osso Bucco (YUM!!!), Poached Salmon (SOOOO tender and delicious), and Lamb (OMG!!!). Of course, we started with wine (and received a complimentary pate platter (!!!) with it. Then we moved on to some of the BEST french onion soup I have ever tasted. The bad news was that we hardly had ROOM LEFT for the dessert, but we forced ourselves anyway! To top it off, we had them add some of their homemade vanilla bean ice cream, aka frozen creme brulee (my favorite). So delish!
The entertainment that night was a concert violinist playing some of the greatest show tunes (Phantom, anyone?) We just had the greatest evening. The only downside was that quite a few others ALSO were having a great evening! We had plenty of time between our courses, which was fine for us since we were having such an enjoyable time.
The staff at Lulu's is great --- they got us everything we needed and checked back to make sure we were fine. Our waiter was the NICEST GUY as well. This is certainly our new favorite place!
Little Touch of France. I came upon this restaurant while searching on line for other things and it stuck in my head. As we bemoaned that there are no Mom & Pop type places in South Orange County to go to for breakfast/lunch, I remembered seeing this place on line. We decided to give it a try. All I can say is that I am a convert and will be a regular at this place. I have spent at least half of my life in France and I have eaten in some of the best restaurants in the world, so my expectations are pretty high. The menu is truly diverse and offers options for practically everyone (including lots of vegetarian choices). My partner had the Normandie Omelette (sausage, bacon, tomatoes, scallions) and raved about it. The roasted potatoes served with it were amazing....perfect. As for me, I tried one of the Gallettes: La Zorba Crepe (gallette with spinach, mushroom, tomatoes, feta cheese, kalamata olives) in a light cream sauce. I had not had a gallette since my last visit to St. Malo and Lulu's did not disappoint. The service was great and the staff all very friendly. The Provence decor was very pleasing as well. I look forward to my next visit and more menu exploration.
Veggie Delight. Great Vegetarian restaurant. The dinner crepes are faboulous!!! If this place wasn't so far from me i'd eat it everyday
