I've been there during winter last year, and it was very cold outside. We ordered some creps & toasts, food was very good. Surrounding area is full of restaurantes & bars, nice to go at night. It seems to be better during summer.

if you are thinking of a sweet snack when you are in the sanlitun area I recommend this little creperie. It makes a pleasant change from the usual Chinese desserts that can taste a little strange to a western palate.

I was there few times wuth my friend. Sometimes it's hard to find a free table in there, because a lot of people like this place. Nice crepe, byt nothing special. There is not so many places like ghis in Beijing. So jyst try to feel something not chinese sitting on this cafe.

I love crepes and have eaten them many times in Brittanny together with the local ciders, dry and sweet. This is presumably what Crepanini aspires to offering in Sanlitun. On my limited experience it doesn't really succeed. I had a savoury crepe with the intention of following it up with a sweet one. It was at best moderate and didn't... More

I went here tonight and we all find the service truly awful. My friend ordered a savory pancake (US$ 9) which took 40 minutes to arrive. I then stupidly ordered a sweet pancake which after 30 minutes hadn't arrived. I asked a couple of times when it was coming and they just threw the money back at me saying "we're... More

As the name suggests, the signatures of this small French-themed bistro on a corner in Sanlitun are crêpes and paninis. The setting is intimate, the staff friendly and the food delicious. Recommended for lunch or a delectable snack.

Crepes and Panini served with salmon, meats, cheeses, and veges in a small white cafe that has additional outdoor seating if the weather allows. Situated in Sanlitun it is a favorite dessert place among locals. The desserts range from Gnutella crepes to large waffles with chocolate and banana toppings with whip cream. Eat a light dinner. The menu includes breakfast... More

Crepanini is a small, outdoor cafe in the modern Chaoyang district of Beijing near the Opposite House Hotel. The menu features sweet and savory crepes, paninis, waffles, and coffees. We ate a quick lunch here of paninis and sweet crepes. I loved the Riviera panini (tomato, basil, mozzarella), and the group's consensus was that the banana and nutella crepe was... More

A lot of choices and it's cheap, if you're French or a student I believe you get a discount, but either way, not pricey and very yummy.
