Euro Caffe's intimate space abounds with European atmosphere, thanks to touches such as tile floors and outdoor patio umbrellas adorned with lights. This European sensibility also extends to the kitchen, which serves up simple eats such as grilled Italian-style paninis, waffles, and its main offering—savory and sweet crepes.
Savory options arrive tableside stuffed with smoked bacon and avocado or housemade pesto and prosciutto. Sweet ones ooze with Nutella and peaches or melted brownies and vanilla ice cream. Everything is made in-house daily using ingredients from local suppliers or the refrigerator of a neighbor. And like any good European cafe, Euro Caffe plies patrons with organic Italian Illy coffee, espresso drinks, and fine teas.

Sen Bistro’s menu of slow-cooked beef stews, shrimp stir-fries, and rice-vermicelli plates expands palates with the authentic tastes of distant Vietnam.
