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

I've been coming here for more than 30 years. I've tried to duplicate their crepes but mine are never as good.

Whenever I am in Rehoboth this is a must-go. The owners are French and the crepes are outstanding. They make them to order while you watch, and it is quite a show. I typically get the savory crepes (egg, ham, cheese, and tomato), but the sweet ones with all that fruit, chocolate, and whipped cream look yummy too. Also check... More

We stopped here for a late morning treat and it was wonderful. You could tell from the line that something good was being served. It definitely was worth the 5-minute wait! We tried a few of the dessert crepes and they were fantastic! I would recommend this place to anyone in need of a sweet treat!

We have a weekend place in Rehoboth and have been coming to Cafe Papillon for many years. It is easily the best cafe and patisserie at the beach, and probably in the region. I've never had crepes or croissants as good in DC, where we live full time. If you visit Rehoboth Beach, ya gotta go here. Simply excellent!

The pastries and croissants are amazing! Long lines especially in the morning for delicious steaming hot coffee and a whole variety of pastries are well worth the wait. The staff are amazing , smiling faces and friendly service...

Grab a coffee and wait in line, you won't regret it. Long lines come and go here in peak season, but the crepes are made to order and so delish! So nice to have the whole family get what they want, and eat outside under an umbrella on charming Penny Lane. Peaceful! We kept coming back for the PERFECT croissants,... More

Cafe Papillon is a daily destination on our annual trip to Rehoboth. The croissants are crunchy on the outside and buttery on the inside. They will definitely not help you look lean and fit on the beach but they are well worth the extra baubles and bits. The place in located in Penny Lane, which is a quiet and cute... More
