The best crepes in the USA

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

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!
