Can't recommend this little place located on what looks more like a back alley behind the Downtown Mall. The owner was rude.

Small "hole in the wall" on outskirts of the mall. Crepes are excellent. Food comes out fast. I tried the "King Is Back" with chicken, avocado and feta. Mainly savory options, but a few sweet as well. Great value. Would highly recommend.

It's a great little surprise, literal hole in the wall in the Cville Downtown Mall. Delicious crepes with ample variety!

Making your own sweet or savory crepe. Go all out with toppings or stick to the basics. They have some of their own choices and all of them are delicious.

Some friends had told me about this place, so I went to see. Being French, I had quite Hugh standards. But this creperie is amazing! Delicious crepes, I highly recommend.

Ordered crepes for four people. After a 45 minute wait, someone who had the order number after ours commented that they felt they had been skipped. We realized that our order was also skipped. We inquired to discover three order tickets had fallen on the floor and had been missed. We were told our order would take an additional 10... More

This is a tiny brick building full of charm and delicious crepes! Don't blink or you'll miss it. It is behind the Jefferson theatre on water st. Between live arts and 1st st south. They only take cash and the staff Is deserving of a big tip :) Carmen, Jacob and Patrick are the best chefs!

Little creperie is just off the Downtown Mall in Charlottesville. Looks like a hole in the wall, as it's just a tiny little brick structure. But don't let looks fool you: the crepes - both savory and sweet - are delightful, as a snack, a main, or dessert.

Tucked away behind an ivy-covered wall, you can time travel to France when you stop by The Flat. We stopped to pick up crepes for dinner the first night and returned for crepes for lunch the next day! It is tiny, the menu is tiny, but the crepes are big and stuffed full of the delicious ingredients that you get... More
