Great little place with delicious crepes. I was immediately transported to the mountains of Courchevel in France. While they are good all year around, they taste better when the weather is slightly cold. Too bad they did not have my favorite crepe with Grand Manier!!...More

Delicious somewhat large crepes. Theres usually a waiting linecwhich is a deterrent. Otherwise the strawberry and whipped cream and the nutella chocolate are the favorites. He could come down in price and still make a good profit

We came here twice for breakfast, however, the cafe is open until 11 p.m.! Everything is outdoors and there are two lines, one for beverages and bakery items and one for crepes. There's a decent amount of seating available by the ordering windows. Going for...More

First let's paint the scene. This is a French-like outdoor cafe in a U.S. beach town. Walking down Penny Lane where the café is located just off Rehoboth Ave you do get a European flavor as you approach Café Papillon... or maybe an American version...More
