So good...worth the wait!! Prices are great, too!!

What a great lunch alternative to the normal lunch menu. Crepes!! So so good...and a multitude to choose from. My favorite is the thai chicken with peanut sauce. It is so filling and just hits the spot!! Rachel's is a cute cafe but there is often a wait....don't be deterred, be encouraged. It just... read more

My friend and I both had salads-1 tomato in each salad, the spinach had long stems on the leaves, and there were brown spots on the romaine. We thought we should have ordered the entree crepes instead. We ordered dessert crepes. They came plain, wrapped in paper, with no presentation at all-no whipped cream, so dusting of confectioner's sugar, no... More

My husband and I took our daughter to Rachel's on Friday morning, her Move In Day at F&M. As you enter the dining room, look up and admire the sign....'Be Nice or Leave". I loved it. It's really not hard to be nice. Anyway -- we were seated right away in a cozy dining room. The waitress came right away... More

Service was slow and our order was incorrect. We ate what was served to us because we waited so long for it.

I finally was able to take my husband to Rachel's! As always it was busy. However, the wait is always quick and well worth it. The staff is so friendly! The atmosphere is so pleasant to relax and enjoy your food. I always get the Capri crepe ... always delicious! We dined on Christmas Eve day, so we each got... More

If you go here at a normal meal time, be prepared to wait! Their food is ALWAYS wonderful so naturally, it's busy. It's best to go during an off time of the day when there's not as many people. Otherwise, you will be there for a while. Go when you're not in a hurry so you can enjoy it

Was there early Sunday morning...nice service and clean place with friendly waitresses. Gave it 4 stars but it wasn't really my kind of place. I would rather traditional breakfast choices but will go back. Had a dessert crepe so likely that was too much and too sweet for the early morning. Will try a traditional breakfast crepe next time. I... More

If you are looking for something unique and special, Rachel's is the place. Great food and you will enjoy how they endow a crepe. So many varieties. We have been there for breakfast and for late night snacks! Love it

I'll admit, I'm a bit of a crepe freak. Rachel's understands. Whether it's a savory crepe at lunch or a sweet crepe for breakfast, you literally cannot go wrong here. The coffee is also solid. My favs: The Ali Fausnaught (OHMYGOSH) Thai Chicken Blackbird

Rachel's has been a Lancaster staple since my time at F&M -- and it continues to deliver incredible food in a fun, friendly environment. The staff is super friendly and attentive, the food arrives hot, fast and packed with flavor and the ambiance is one of a kind.
