Wonderful Brunch

Great service. Great food; the crepes are huge. I'd go back. It was raining when we were there so it was a little crowded inside; we could've have used the outdoor seating.

When you pull up in front of Chez Elle, you can tell it is going to be a great experience. There are café tables on the sidewalk out front. You walk in and order at the counter and then they give you a number and you choose a table. The restaurant is very cozy with little couches and chairs in... More

Before going to the National World War I Museum we went to Chez Elle for breakfast. This creperie makes you feel like you are France. Their soups are wonderful, and their crepes are large, excellent, and quite filling. My favorite crepe is the “Tour Eiffel”: (a smoked salmon, artichokes, capers and caramelized onions crepe). My wife had the “Petite Maison”:... More

My wife and I ended up eating here twice. I'm not a fan of ordering at the counter but beyond that the crepes (crepes are what they do, so if you don't like them you have no other choices) were great! The food comes to the table a little slow but it's beautifully presented and filling. The staff is nice... More

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
