Go for the Snickers Crepe

The place is small & cute. They have crepes, waffles, macaroons, cupcakes and the like. Go for the Snickers Crepe! I tried their other dishes but they weren't as good! *Unfortunately, one time, they didn't have any drinking water available, both bottled and house water. Not good because most... read more

I've come here at least a dozen times across the years, but am writing now because I think the attitude that is given to diners has now crossed the line. While the crepes are good and the menu of desserts is plentiful with options that can occasionally be hard to find in Beijing, service is in decline. It's a tight... More

Great snack after a visit to Sanlitun. Crepes are not easily found in Beijing and these are pretty good.

I went there last night for dinner. The location is perfect. They have tables outdoor as well as indoors. The place is pretty popular since the tables outside were all taken. I stayed inside and ordered the Triskell sour Crepe and the Tutti Frutti sweet crepe. The waiting time for the first: 25mins, 5 mins for the second. I personally... More

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.
