I know that I’m the last person in this area to know how amazing this place is. Everything is incredibly fresh and extremely well seasoned. So many choices for a savory or sweet crepe. Feels so much better in terms of “heaviness” than a bagel...More

This is my favorite restaurant by far. The crepes are unique and all of them are delicious. My personal favorite is the Blackbird crepe. They’re dessert options are fantastic, especially if you like Nutella. The atmosphere at the cafe is great as well!

Lots of delicious choices including a seasonal feature. Usually a waiting line. Do not park in the lot behind Rachel’s even if it is a Sunday and the business is closed. You will be towed. There are signs warning you. Believe them.

The food was good and the service was quick. The place does get packed and is loud. Kids ate the plain crepe and fruit crepe. Both also are hash browns which are little flat patties. Great for little hands. Reasonable prices! Yummy holiday hot drinks!...More
