Get there at 8 or prepare to wait....but worth the wait

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

The crepes were excellent! Do yourself a favor and order a sweet one and savory one, you won't regret it. They make them fresh right in front of you!

Our family was walking past this café while shopping, and paused to inquire what a passerby was eating, it looked so good. He said he always orders crepes here whenever in town. Well we had to try them! Ordered the brown sugar and cinnamon as well as banana chocolate crepes. Both extremely good, but might as well go all the... More

TripAdvisor said open. I have had my heart set on these crepes for weeks! Not open today sadly.....hoping open tomorrow with the good weather! I haven't had one of their crepes in 15 years but I remember them. I was so disappointed when I walked to their store and it was closed. I live 3 hours away......please open!

Savory or sweet this is the place for a treat! A Rehobithian hidden secret. Truly if you want a great crepe made by actual french crepe makers this is the place

I've been going to Rehoboth for years and have always made a point of going to Cafe Papillon at least once. I dream about their crepes and have not been able to find any anywhere that are even close. They are sooooo good. Walking into the lane where the shop is located is a pleasure and the anticipation builds when... More

The crepes are fabulous. We had them for dessert, chocolate and banana and strawberry with whipped cream. They should not be missed during your visit. In the morning there is a long line. Long lines usually mean good food. That is true here!

I returned to this very unique Café in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, to share for the very first time all their scrumptious treats with M'Lady...Nicely tucked into opposing sides of 'Penny Lane', a side street of cool shops that branches south of the main shopping & dining drag of Rehoboth Avenue...As you approach, you'll find a handful of smartly appointed, umbrella...

Hands down one of the best crêpes I've tried in the US! I ordered one of their savory crêpes, while my friend got a nutella and strawberry, both of which were superb. The owner is French and makes them right in front of you! He seemed friendly and gave us helpful tips about the area since we aren't from around... More
