So good! Try it!!

We tried out Chez Elle for the first time today and it was so good! We can't wait to return! We went for breakfast. I had the Patriot crepe (blueberries, bananas, strawberries, creme anglaise and whipped cream) my husband had the Paris crepe (Nutella, bananas and add peanut butter). Both were... read more

I have been here many times but it has been over a year since my last visit. The lobster bisque is the best in town - flavorful with a bite. Don't miss ordering this. Disappointing because the crepe was too thick. It was more like a thin pancake than a crepe and mushy not like the crepes were a year... More

Met friends for breakfast & was pleased to find that we had beat the crowd. Walked right up to order & for a group of 6, had out crepes in no time. The staff was friendly & we enjoyed seeing our crepes made to order. Makes you feel like you've been whisked away to Paris.

Kansas City's West End has really grown in popularity and this has to be one of the reasons why. I've never been a big fan of crepes but the first time my then 15 year old daughter and I stopped here, I was hooked. Sweet and savory, I've tried quite a few and have enjoyed them all. It has a...

They have great selection of crepes to make any breakfast or lunch very enjoable. However, I saw a cocroach, which indicates sanitation issues in the kitchen.

We ate there for breakfast one morning with the family. Great food and great atmosphere. If you like crepes, I would definately give this restaurant a try. We topped off breakfast with the au chocolate sweet crepe and it was delicious!

They serve both savory and sweet and dessert crepes. The food does not disappoint! Only drawbacks is that it can be hard to find a place to sit due to frequent return customers like us. The acoustics sometimes make it seem louder inside than it is. When the weather is nice, the outdoor seating is perfect!

The restaurant is very casual and relaxing. You place your order in line, get a number, take a table and wait for your wine, coffee, and/or meal to be delivered. We went for an early lunch, which was a smart move since it got busy. The line moved quickly, though. The garden crepe was awesome, and so was the one... More

I love a good crepe place. The food at Chez Elle was very good and came out quickly. They have lots of varieties of both sweet and savory crepes including the option of making them gluten free. My husband and I each got a savory crepe and then split a sweet crepe. It seemed a little expensive, but the food... More
