Welcome to our Blog!

My 10 year old daughter & I created LadyBug Restaurant Reviews to write about the restaurants we eat at from a parent/child perspective. Our ratings are for food, service, presentation, friendly waitstaff and overall experience. We rate on a 1 - 5 ladybug scale, with 5 ladybugs being the highest score. We hope you enjoy and please feel free to comment and give suggestions!

Sophia says: Today for lunch/dessert we went to Crepevine! It opened a few weeks ago and has been very crowded. This restaurant also used to be Nicoles, which we reviewed last year.  (please click on the link to see! http://ladybugrestaurantreviews.blogspot.com/2011/11/nicholes.html )
When we got there, we waited in a long line before we could give our order. There was waitstaff bustling around, the chefs cooking fast and everyone was talking. When we finally got to the front of the line, we ordered the Santorini crepe and the Midnight Blues for all of us to share. Then the cashier gave us a number and we sat down. It took a little longer for them to bring us our food but when they did, it looked really good. It tasted DELICIOUS! The Santorini was sweet and also came with vanilla ice cream and whipped cream. I would come back but not at such a busy time.

Midnight Blues
Josh says: Today we went to Crepevine. We waited to get our food for a long time. Then when we finally got our food we came to a table and started eating. I had the Santorni crepe and it was good.  And they gave ice cream with whipped cream. I also had some lemonade. The restaurant was too loud but I would love to come back anyway.

Paul says: Crazy busy place. Worth the wait, crepe wise. Reasonable price for downtown.  Great selection of drinks, and the other dishes looked great. I wouldn't want to come back when it is that crazy busy but would come back again when it slows down.

Jodie says: This is a special review because we started this blog when Sophia was only 8 years old and she just turned 10!  Crepevine took over after Nicoles closed down this year. It's a great location in downtown Mountain View. We have been wanting to try it and they have looked very busy.  We stopped by this afternoon and the line was almost out of the door. We waited about 15 minutes to order and then it took another 15 or so minutes to receive our crepes. When the food is up on the counter the servers have to walk around the whole restaurant, inside and outside to look for the correct number on the table.  Paul and I shared the Midnight Blues and it was really good, and very sweet. I would love to try one of their salads next time.
