Delicious!!!

These are some of the best crepes I've had since I went to Paris! Definitely a must go! Make sure you are hungry you will want a savory and a sweet one!

We were pretty excited to try a French creperie and the food certainly did not disappoint: the salads and the crepes, both the savory and the sweet ones, were great. The service, on the other hand, consisted of a few young women being very very confused, slow, not exactly friendly and overall giving off an aura of this being the... More

Yummy crepes, whether sweet or savory...and quite a spin on each. Quite tasty, and the neighborhood is trendy and off-beat. Local crowd, few café tables outside, and nice, simple, homey vibe. Loved the Greek the best!

Delicious and decadent Au Chocolaut crepes on Sunday morning. Any chocolate lovers delight - and the perfect reason to have a sweet treat for breakfast - it gives you the whole day to work it off! The service is always comfortable and casual but you can spiff it up if you prefer. It was too cool this morning for the... More

Nice atmosphere but terrible food. I ordered the breakfast crepe with ( so they say) bacon, Swiss cheese, eggs, hollandaise sauce. I've never had worse Hollandaise and the bacon was sickeningly sweet and the crepe batter as well. Eggs maybe powdered they were so bad. Also ordered a mocha which never came. I couldn't eat the crepe. So it's money... More

Chez Elle offers both savory and sweet crepes, as well as a good variety of hot teas & coffees. The savory crepe I had was the #1 (also name the Chez Elle crepe) was loaded with Roasted chicken, sautéed mushrooms, sun dried tomatoes, baby spinach, mozzarella and pesto. It was then topped with a tasty marinara sauce. This crepe was... More

This is the first time going to the restaurant, but definitely not the last. It probably would have gotten 5 stars from me, but it was just so busy with lines out the door that I could not enjoy the full atmosphere of the restaurant. They offer a large variety of crepes including savory, sweet and breakfast options. They also... More

For this place to be in Kansas City, you must go and you must take people you like for brunch. Cool location, food is great and atmosphere has always been fun when I've gone (always in warm weather).

This was our third or fourth trip to Chez Elle in the past three years. A nice restored mansion creates an eclectic spot for lunch. We had the Chez Elle and the Tour Eiffel, both well prepared and flavorful. We had decaf coffee and the peach ice tea to drink. Finished off sharing the banana Nutella crepe. Counter service. Very...
