I Go Bananas for Crepe!

It was a beautiful sunny day today and I got to take a little walk around Japan-town in San Jose with my family.
We saw some graffiti:
Monkey eating a banana?
I took that as a sign! :P
So we all went to try some crepe at "Banana Crepe" :

A very tiny little place that sales different kinds of crepe, shaved ice, smoothies, coffee and tea, etc.
We've walked by there many times but this is the first time we actually went inside to eat something.
The counter where you make your order and pay.
Other end. It was quite busy O_o
Haha! I love how they have so many monkeys hanging around here and there.. My mom was trying to find how many monkeys there were in the store but she lost count by the time she got to 60 :P
My crepe. O_o It was huge! I'm usually used to seeing flat crepes that you eat at the mall and so when I saw my crepe look like this huge cone of yummy goodness, O_o it made me happy :P
I got the "Peaches N Cream" desert crepe: vanilla ice-cream, peaches, whip cream.
These little guys were watching us eat our crepes! :P
 I would go back to try their other crepes. I really like the texture of their crepes. I also want to try their shaved ice that a lot of people rave about. :P
Overall, I had a good experience with the food, the ambiance, and the service!
The only complaint I may have is that they accept cash only.
So it would suck for you if you wanted to go eat there and had no cash with you on hand.

I'm not affiliated with the company.
We bought the crepes ourselves.
This is not an ad; Just wanted to share my experiences.

I love how they decorated the place with all these monkeys! Crepes, which are of French origin, are also very popular dessert/ light dinner where I come from, so I always have a soft spot for them. xxx
