Many came out to Little Gourmand on Saturday evening to honor France's Independence Day.
Jonny Gowow and the Japanese Cowboys were one of three groups to perform.
Crepes were served in flavors like Nutella, real fruit jam and sugar.
Along with crepes, authentic French food was available for purchase.
Later in the evening, three can-can dancers stopped by for a surprise dance.
