Crepes made to order

These crepes are to die for!! One of the best crepes I have had. The selection is large and they serve breakfast, lunch and dessert crepes. Worth the wait!!

Every person brews coffee differently and this place is no exception. If you are looking for a sweeter cup of coffee, go here. The chocolate croissant is good too. But it is expensive. Where most medium coffees are 16 oz, this place gives you 12 oz. also, there is no good place to get cream and sugar for your coffee.

Love the summer season when Cafe Papillon is open, love their breakfast crepe with ham egg,cheese,and tomatoes, crepes are thin and delicate the way the should be, well done.

Croissants, coffee, crepes. All good. No, all unbelievably delicious. This shop is down one of the alleys off of the main street in Rehoboth. Weekend mornings, just look for the line about 20 people deep. Nice places to sit, service is very good, but the main thing is the baking. Fantastic.

I had the ham & cheese croissant - OMG, heaven! If you are in Rehoboth you MUST stop by this place and have a croissant or a crepe, and a yummy cup of coffee. Get there before 11 so you can catch a good selection.

We've make it a yearly requirement to visit Cafe Papillon to get crepes. The people who work behind the creperie certainly work hard and earn their tips. Each year we take a trip down Penny Lane, located near the boardwalk in Rehoboth Beach. At the far end of the lane one can find (and smell) the Cafe Papillon. We always... More

My friend and I went down to the beach for a day and while we were walking around window shopping we came upon this adorable little cafe. She got a nutella stuffed crepe with strawberries and whipped cream. The owner herself made it. Not only was it generously filled, topped, and expertly made, we watched them make it right there...

This little café is located on one of the side avenues that run from the main streets leading to the boardwalk. It is worth seeking out. It is a genuine French bakery. We stopped here for coffee and desert after dinner on the boardwalk. It was so good, we came back the next day. It is a quaint little stop,... More

The best crepes and croissants . Crepes are made to order so wait time can get up there but there is a very good reason for the wait...the best dang crepes anywhere. Great coffee and tarts...if this was the Lego Movie I have to sing "Everything is Awesome". Do I love Cafe Papillon?? Oui!!

The place is really cute, but if you're going to have baked goods and crepes, you have to wait in two different lines, which take FOREVER, unless you get there well before they open. It seems they'd do much better by expanding and getting more staff to serve all the people that want their goods. The almond croissant was tasty,... More
