It's not on Cal Ave, but at 548 Ramona. It's opened, but I haven't tried it yet.

I ate at Bistro Maxine yesterday and enjoyed it. I had a Mt. San Michel crepe, which has brie, walnuts, and thinly sliced apples. The crepe was beautiful and was served with a small balsamic-dressed salad. The food prices seem reasonable and the crepes are lovely.
The only criticism is that my glass of iced tea, which was served in one of those tiny jelly-jar-type glasses that hold maybe 1/2 cup, cost $2.25, which was not listed on the menu. Hot tea is listed at $1.75. Not a big deal, but I was only able to flag the waitress down for two more refills when things got busy at lunchtime, so I was thirsty!
I chatted with the owner about the lack of signage and publicity, and he says that should change shortly. The restaurant opened in late June, so it's only been three weeks. Give it a shot.
