Average pancakes

We tried both savory and sweet pancakes. They were just OK, nothing special. Though, the appetizer with some meat, cheese, etc was just great. Service is OK, the girl who served us both times doesn't speak English, so she was unable to recommend us anything. Note, that if you pay by credit card... read more

This place was so tasty. We loved it! One of the best sandwiches I've ever had and such a treat. Also the chocolate milkshake is awesome! We tried the crepes as well and so tasty. Nothing to fault about this place. Very well priced. Two meals and two drinks for 60sols. The service was great and the food came out... More

The atmosphere in this restaurant is just perfect for a late night snack. Crepisimo is located on Calle Santa Catalina, a short walk from the main square in Arequipa and the magnificent cathedral. The staff are friendly and attentive. The crepes are out of this world. The price is just right. The crowd appears to be mostly bohemian types who... More

We ate here three times in the three days stayed in Arequipa! The service is rapid. From ordering to eating was probably less than 15 minutes. They also give you complimentary olives to start. They have a wide range of savoury crepes from quite plain (tomato and mozzarella) to more exotic (creamy chicken curry). Their sweet crepes are also amazing.... More

On Friday night we were lucky to secure the last available table in the courtyard. We ordered two cañihua flour savory crepes (pear and goat cheese and ají de gallina), both were delicious. Complimentary green olives were nice addition to our savory crepes. There was a beautiful performance in an auditorium next to the restaurant; we could fully enjoy it... More

i got the crepe with chicken and Roquefort cheese, and it was absolutely delicious (and Roquefort sauce can be hard to get right). The service was the best I've had in South America. They were happy for me to sit with my book for a while afterwards. There is also a look with a great view on the third floor

We were having such a hard time finding good places to eat in Arequipa until we stumbled upon Crepisimo. This little restaurant really was a lifesaver! Within our five-day stay, we came here three times and then came back for sandwiches to-go. Their quinoa salad was delicious, as was their chocolate fondue. The atmosphere in this restaurant is also cozy... More

On the day we ate here we had already had a buffet lunch so decided to go for a lighter dinner - we had seen this restaurant mentioned on Tripadvisor and as it was round the corner from our hotel we thought why not! The menu is fairly extensive with both sweet and savoury pancakes, all food was freshly prepared... More

I needed a break from free hostel breakfasts so I came here for a croissant, coffee, and juice. I expected a small croissant but it was HUGE! I ordered it with ham, tomatoes, and goat cheese. Very good. I also really enjoyed fresh pineapple juice and coffee-- definitely the best cup of coffee I've had in Arequipa. I would highly... More
