What a crepe!

My husband and I shared a dessert crepe. the banana exotique, as a carry-out. We both loved it, I was surprised he liked it since he's not as much of a crepe fan. I haven't dined there but carry-out was fast. I used to go to Good Girls and Josephine Crepes (both places have closed) and What Crepe's... read more

I had never had a crepe before and found a Groupon for this place and chose to give it a go for breakfast. This place was EXTREMELY tiny (maybe a 30 person capacity) which I could not appreciate due to the very close spacing (not easy to move around or have much privacy) and it was had to maintain a...

We popped in today for brunch. We had a Groupon so we thought we'd give it a whirl. Apparently they just re-opened from a renovation. Everything I read said that it's bigger now. It must have been really small before because its not that big now! My husband and I each ordered a savory crepe while my son had 2... More

What Crepe has re-opened with a remodeled dining room and the same good food. At the time we were there, they did not yet have a liquor license so the staff sent us across the street for a bottle of wine and charged us a corking fee to serve it. Food is good and hearty. My husband was concerned crepes... More

We had not been back to try The Crepe Bistro Lounge that reopened in the spot What Crepe had been in. Some of the former staff, including the chef, are part of this new enterprise. What Crepe had been atmospheric but really cramped and claustrophobic. The new modern look of The Crepe Bistro Lounge opens the place up and provides... More

I ate here with one of my best friends and my daughter. The crepes were perfect. We each tried a different savory crepe and had a sweet one for dessert. My daughter had never tried brie before and loved it with her chicken, The sauce for the egg crepe was excellent and theCount of Monte Cristo crepe was very good.... More

Simply put, if I could live here, I would! Absolutely divine dining. After being introduced to What Crepe via a Groupon deal;I am now, head over hills for crepes. Most recently, cause' I got crepe cravings, we visited another establishment in the metropolitan area ready to have a similar if not better dining experience. Well my people have always told...

It's not cheap, and its very small, but great service and superb sweet and savory crepes! Plus the hot caramel apple cider was reported by my wife and one of my daughters to be simply heaven!!! We went on a Sunday at 11 AM and they reported to us a 30 minute wait but it only ended up about 15... More
