Both locations are great!

A true gem of a restaurant in Harrisburg and a second location in Hershey. Both are wonderful with Hershey having more tables for in-house dining. Au Bon Lieu est magnifique! The crepes are amazing - not too sweet - which is typically the problem with creperies trying to create savory options.

Went here with my husband and 9 yr old son. Many different crepes to choose from, savory and sweet. Ours were delicious! Paul and Lisa were very friendly and attentive. Loved the chalkboard top tables to draw on while we wait. Didn't wait long though, food was ready very quickly.

My 9 y/o daughter and I went there after reading about it. (We have been on a road trip starting from our home in Tampa, FL and went through every state in the eastern time zone... plus Toronto & Midland ON Canada) This is the best crepe place. great food, awesome service and chalkboard tables to draw on!

Food was nothing short of great. My kids gobbled down the chocolate based crepes they ordered, and my "ratatouille" crepe was excellent. Very cool little tables inside...kids (or whoever) can use chalk directly on the table and make nice drawings. Waitress we had was very kind and considerate. Quit reading and go there. Won't break the bank and food is... More

The literal translation of 'Au Bon Lieu' is 'The Good Place'. Today was my first visit here. It's the Yelp reviews that brought me here. I'm new to Harrisburg. And I think I just found my most favorite café. As soon as I walked in, I was greeted with a smile by Lisa. She understood immediately that I was new... More

Looking for a good brunch place on Sunday this is the spot in Hershey PA. Service was a little slow but the small restaurant was accommodating by offering a crepe to tide us over until our order arrived. Very delicious both sweet and savory offerings. If you like crepes this is a good choice

My family went to this place this weekend, it was great! We all had a savory dish, and a few desert ones, everyone enjoyed them. The waiter was fantastic, he was so nice even offered to customize our orders with any kind of substitution we may want. This place was very accommodating! We new it was a small so we... More

The hours are sometimes weird and there have many instances where I've shown up and the door is locked but the cooks are just sitting around... Weird. Besides those instances, the crepes are pretty good. I always get the hazelnut and strawberry, and my friends usually enjoy the savory ones. Limited seating so don't expect to fit a huge crowd....

You certainly don't come here for the atmosphere. The shop is extremely tiny and has no restrooms. There's a couple of tables outside on the street and a few inside. It's tight corners. When I walked in there was one server and 2 cooks behind the counter right in front. The server walked by us multiple times but didn't greet... More
