Pejamajo Cafe

July 15th, 2009 · 5 Comments

A friend and I checked out the newly opened Pejajamo Cafe in Holliston. As I’ve mentioned before, when I grew up in Holliston, there was very little for food options besides pizza and subs so it’s very impressive to see a crepe place that serves lattes and alcohol.
Inside is cute, simple but kind of “classy”, I thought I got a shot of the seats but all I got was the counter:

My friend got a BLT crepe which included bacon, arugula, tomatoes, avocado, gruyere cheese:

My crepe had prosciutto, goat cheese and fig spread:

Both of these were pretty good. I guess the distribution of ingredients could have been a little for better a more consistent taste in each bite (some was just meat, some just cheese…) but I don’t know if that’s part of the crepe experience since I can’t remember the last time I even had a crepe.  The idea of the combination of the ingredients in both crepes were great though.

It was just the chime of 7pm (when they close) that we realized what time it was an wanted to split a smores crepe for dessert.  We asked if it was too late to order one and they said no but when we got it we thought next time we just won’t order it because it could have been cooked a little longer to have melted the marshmallows but it was good enough the way it was too:

We’ll definitely be back and think this is a great meeting place since Holliston is half-way between my house and my friend’s house in Millis and we can meet for a glass of wine or a coffee.

    I went to Pejamajo a few weeks ago and was impressed with the food. I had a chicken, prosciutto, pesto, artichoke panini and it was delicious. The only thing that seemed a bit odd was their hours. According to their menu, the only crepe they offer before 11 is the “Classic” crepe with butter, sugar, and cinnamon. Additionally, they are closed on Sundays, which makes it difficult for working people to get there. Definitely a great new spot, though!

    Just moved to Natick and am a big fan of your blogs 🙂

    Sorry- I can’t say I am impressed- Crepes are tough, and you are left saying- is that it? Pricey for what you get- I am disappointed after waiting so long for it to open. Had a salad with chicken- small pieces- skimpy serving- for $ 9.00 ! Panini was also small and way to hard after grilling. Not open on Sunday- my only day off? Good luck making it in Holliston- Wellesley or Dover, maybe. Grab a coffee there- that works- or a quick beer or glass of wine- ok..nice atmosphere- but portions for the price need to be improved. It is for the “crunchy granola” crowd for sure- don’t expect to get a generous salad and you better like pears, dried cranberries, goat cheese on fancy lettuce. What happened to a fresh salad with veggies & grilled meats? No carrots, no tomatoes ( only sun dried), no celery, no onions ( only chopped scallions)-won’t be going there again anytime soon.

    I visisted Pejamajo Cafe and found the service to be mezza-mezz, and the prices were outragous. I understand this is in Holliston and the clientelle is a bit more upscale then some folks from the Framingham area, but I got 2 Panni’s and 2 “garden salads” and it set me back almost 30 dollars when I threw in a soda. Then to top off the poor experiance the chairs were not very comfortable at all, I have back problems and just a few years ago had a large growth removed from my upper back region. The chairs put me in so much pain. I should have listened to my friend Mr. Steele, and avodied this place (God rest his soul) I would probably give this place another go, but hope the service improves and they can get soem chairs that dont disqualify the bigger guests from enjoying themselves.

    My husband and I have no aversion to paying for good food with decent portions. And even if theses items are lacking, good and courteous service still has some value. However, we found this restaurant to be lacking in ALL of the above. A grumpy young man waited on us, the three paninis took over 20 minutes to prepare and were served with a sald straight out of the bag with just the tiniest hint of dressing. As we left, we joked that now we can go get lunch since we’d had the appetizer. Never again willl we darken their doorway.
