The new What Crepe

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... read 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

I decided to try this place out again since my BF had a Groupon for it. I brought my own bottle of hot sauce, since their idea of savory is decent, but ends up coming up short. The food is over-priced and has gone down in quality since it's early days, service is average at best, but at least this... More

Try the chicken truffle crepe! It is amazing! The atmosphere here is very eclectic. The restaurant is very small, so get there early or plan to wait. The staff is friendly but I did have a weird experience here on my last visit... We arrived about an hour and a half after they opened on a Saturday. There were plenty... More

If you are a person who haven't tasted real crepe, the way it is supposed to be done and presented then this place is Ok to worth a try.This is a place to start. If you have had crepes in Europe or in USA, good ones, then feel free to skip this place. It;s unfortunate most people think in America... More
