We went for lunch after visiting the Santa Catalina Monastery! It's has a very wide variety of crepes and deserts! A great option for any type of meal - it's right in front of the monastery. A must if you love sweet crepes :)

Loved this cafe! It's slightly expensive but the crepes are so good. They also have a good selection of juices and homemade lemonade (recommend the one with mint). We only had savoury crepes but the sweet ones looked amazing too. I loved that they give you the option of having your crepe made with white or wholemeal flour. You can... More

My boyfriend and I went here for a late lunch on our lay day in Arequipa. They offer a lunch special of three courses and a drink for s./32 which was incredibly reasonable for what we were given. We both chose the French style crepe, a crepe filled with beef stroganoff which was really tasty and the beef was well... More

I went here after a very long, arduous night bus. The sandwiches are absolutely amazing- I ended up going back 3 times- I haven't had such a good sandwich in a long time! everything is fresh and homemade. Highly recommend!

A supercool place with the best crepes! The cappuccino was out of this world! Informal and super cozy - perfect place to warm up from the at times icy cold Arequipean nights.

When in Arequipa i n June 2015, we wanted a different meal that would not be too big and yet satisfy our appetite. We found Crepisimo near our hotel and just couldn't resist its appeal. The dining area was not very large on the ground floor (there was an upstairs, too), and service was exquisite and very friendly. After ordering... More
