Fantastic sandwiches, too!

I stopped by thinking of getting a crepe, but ended up ordering some amazing sandwiches for a beach picnic. Our family of 5 shared a ham and cheese, a turkey and cheese and 1 of each of the veggie sandwiches on a combination of baguette and croissants. Each sandwich came with a sizeable garnish... read more

The crepes were yummy but the ladies making the crepes need to learn some health and sanitation standards. Seeing some of the things they did left a "bad taste in my mouth".

Whether it is the egg ham and cheese for the strawberry Nutella whipped cream, you cant go wrong here. Plan to wait in line a bit and bring cash. Delish!

I decided to try their croissants and a turkey sandwich on baguette and wasn't expecting too much since I'm always disappointed with "French" food around PA, DE and MD. This was the real thing!!! So good, fresh and done with high quality ingredients. It was real baked turkey with swiss (no processed American cheese crap) and croissants were crispy and... More

Folks this place is worth the wait. We have tried several other new "boardwalk" crepe venues and they aren't close. Located in a quaint secluded walkway of shops called Penny Lane, Cafe Papillion is the best choice for sweet or savory crepes any where in Rehoboth Beach. The crepe chefs seem to be from France and are extremely skilled at... More

The young French girl who made my breakfast was as sweet as my chocolate crepe. I dropped the boys off for fishing and headed to the Cafe. This was my first time in Rehoboth in about 12 years and thanks to trip advisor I wanted to try this place. So happy I went on my solo mission!!!! Yummmm We are... More

I believe the resturant is run by French heritage people....best cappuccino in Rehoboth! Didn't try their crepe personally but others nearby looked delicious.

This is such a neat place to go to. It is on a cobble stone street. It has really good croissants and coffee.

Their crepes are amazing. I tend to go with savory because my mother-in-law (from France) makes sweet ones often. The croissants are the best I can find anywhere!!! I always buy at least 4-6 to take home and for the first time this year I froze them immediately. I just pop them in an oven for about 15 min and... More

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!!
