So lets get this out of the way right quick. If you are looking for quick and convenient, forget it. Get there early to get a spot in line, and then take your patience pills, because you are going to have to wait for your crepe. Know this up front before you commit, and it will be all good. Ok,...

The croissants at this outdoor cafe near the boardwalk are some of the best we've eaten anywhere. They are flaky, buttery and freshly baked. We visited twice and tried the plain (butter), chocolate and raspberry/sweet cream croissants--all were delicious. Several other varieties of croissants are available also as well as other pastries. Lines are often long but the wait is... More

While visiting Rehoboth with my three friends from my French study-abroad program, we had breakfast here both mornings we were in town. We decided that these were some of the best croissants and crêpes we have had in the US. The sweet cheese croissant was absolutely phenomenal and the café was parfait! Definitely stop by and enjoy this quaint little... More

This place has been around as long as I can remember! Tucked into a small space in Penny Lane, Café Papillion serves up crepes to order filled/topped with a variety of selections. The Nutella and banana crepe is one of my favorites. Since it has bananas it is a healthier dessert choice…Right??

Had cappuccinos here on two separate occasions: the first time they were great (although the waitress screwed up our order, which we didn't complain about because she seemed new). The second time, they tasted awful, like a cup of hot milk. We just threw them out and found another place further up on Rehoboth Ave.

They make the crepes right in front of you to order with hand-made technique. I was there for dinner and had the ham and cheese crepe. It was the best crepe that I have ever had. They have so many kinds to choose from! Absolutely delicious! Also, they have authentic desserts and pastries. I had the creme brulee. It was... More

Found this place by chance on a side street off Rehoboth Avenue. It is miraculous. They are extremely friendly, French folks who now operate this location which is perfect for breakfast. They offer coffee, authentic (and I mean it) French pastries, crepes and other breakfast items. Every time, regardless what we ordered it was "fantastique"! I can't rave more about... More

Couldn't wait for my raspberry cheese croissants while the rest of my family enjoyed the wonderful crepes. Love that penny lane alley where they are located.

Great food at reasonable prices. The Penny Lane location gives the cafe a real Euro feel. Made to order right in front of you!
