This place could not get any cuter. The upstairs has a book lounge with a jazzy feel. You can watch the chefs make your crepe. The smoothies are fresh and so delicious. The local beer is perfect with a savory crepe. (The pesto one did have A LOT of pesto). I can't say enough good things about this place.

Had lunch here after arriving in Arequipa from Lima. Excellent location near Plaza Armas and several of the better hotels. (We were staying at the Casa Andina Private Collection.) The crepes are large and nice and fresh. Try the peruvian specialties. They have an excellent choice in smoothies and a surprisingly good choice in English beers. Set in a nice... More

Crepes and coffee, perfect combination! Worth the extra few soles! It's hard to get real cheese in SA!

We ran into Crepissimo by chance, looking for a place to have an early coffee. The coffee was great and so were the chocolates we ordered with them. So we came back for lunch. And had a great draft beer and a wonderful salad. So we came back for dinner, had wine and two fantastic savory crepes. And decided that... More

We came to this restaurant multiple times throughout our 3 night stay in Arequipa. I had really bad altitude sickness, and this restaurant is EXACTLY what you need to get you through it. They have delicious, hearty crepes which is carbs your body needs. They fresh made-to-order juices/smoothies, which is the vitamins/nutrients your body needs. I got the orange pinapple... More

Everything about this breakfast was amazing. The restaurant itself was beautifully set up with a cozy patio. Right across the courtyard is an art gallery that you can go peek in while you wait for your food. They also have a roof that you can go up to and get a panorama view of the city. The food presentation was... More

We are a couple days into our Peru trip and this is still my favorite restaurant. I wish we had one back home, but then again, I Love crepes! My husband and I each ordered two crepes: one for our meal and one for dessert. For the meal, I had the steak and pesto crepe. They don't hold back on... More

Is it a bar, a cafe or a French-style creperie? It's actually all three! A buzzing atmosphere in a European style cafe-bar serving English Abbott Ale from the barrel - the only place in Arequipa! Tuck in to tasty Andean food including salads and sandwiches plus of course French style sweet and savoury crepes, equal to any on offer in... More

We walked down to this restaurant from our hotel, the Libertador. Took about 15 mins. Wanted a light meal and this fits the bill (although you can order and eat more!). There is a wide range of fillings for the crepes, some unusual but very good. You can choose the type of flour your crepes are made with. We tried... More
