When you crave something different....Rachel's is the place!

Wonderful selections of delicious crapes for both meals and desserts. The flavors are wonderful and the ingredients are fresh. Don't be afraid to step out of your comfort zone and try something different. Just make sure to save room for dessert...worth the space! Also really like and appreciate... read more

We first visited this restaurant their first week in business and it quickly became one of our favorite places in Lancaster. We have supported their business through many years and mediocre experiences. Since their move to the new, still not big enough location, we have been disappointed with the service and lack of hospitality. There is a sign that hangs... More

Rachel's moved from Queen to a larger spot on Walnut St but it still gets packed. A simple menu with tasty options works for Lancastrians. Gotta love a Nutella crepe! Reminds me of Paris :-)

If you've never had a crepe they aren't just for desert. This is an all time favorite of ours. My daughter is at college out of state and still dreams of Rachel's. It's just that good.

We stopped in twice at Rachels new location after having been at their previous location a few times. The first stop was for coffee and a snack. We were seated and served quickly. The décor was nice and it did have a European feel. The food was good, and the cost only slightly higher than average. Then, we decided to... More

It's hard to get into Rachel's because it is so popular. Guests stand in line waiting for a table in the cozy, spacious dining room or the outdoor deck in warm weather. That's because the crepes are delicious. After months of driving past but not even trying to get in I went there for a late lunch and was immediately... More

Went here for breakfast, so many options to choose from! I had the Greek Omelet Crepe, and it was very savory.

This was unique little spot that my wife and I stopped in for breakfast. We've been to a number of different crepes places around the country and this place certainly was up there as a favorite. The portions were pretty huge and the crepes were only a little thicker than I generally like, but it was still a fantastic place... More

We were prompt;y seated and the hostesses were attentive and did not 'smother us' to rush us out. We ordered and the food came out promptly, tasted fresh and was very tasty. We also order the 'yogurt' crepe and it was 'huge' and luckily we only ordered one, but it was a serving that could feed three people.

Went for breakfast. We all had the breakfast crepes, eggs n bacon and it was delicious. We later ordered the fruit n chocolate with cream which was just as good or better !!!!! Prices are average. Place is very quaint and clean and pretty, was decorated for Xmas and looked really pretty. Staff was very nice as well. Highly recommend.
