Finally sunny weather and sat outside. The crepe selection is excellent and there is something for everyone. The coffee drinks are very tasty. Great place for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Great prices and excellent staff. Back soon!

I love this place. My favorite crepe is the Thai Chicken Peanut. It can get pretty crowded so plan accordingly. Service is prompt and thorough. Not really friendly.....but not unfriendly.....just consistently devoid of much personality acoss the board with most of the staff. I love the food so much and the service is fine that it doesn' t bother me.

The crepes here are delicious. Don't come here, though, if you don't want a crepe...the name says it all. While the food is good, the wait is long and there is little privacy...tables are close together and it's more of a diner feel. If you go at lunchtime, expect a decent wait for a table. The waitstaff aren't terribly friendly,... More

My wife and I went here for lunch because we had received a gift certificate for this restaurant and we could not wait to return. They have a creative selection of crepes that are simply delicious. I had a Greek salad crepe with chicken and my wife ordered a cheese steak crepe. We were so happy with the food and... More

I enjoyed the atmosphere and the wait staff was very friendly and accommodating, and very much liked my ham and brie. Be prepared as they do not traditionally prepare crepes in the light, thin way you may be used to. Had the lemon blueberry dessert crepe too, awesome!

We stopped in for brunch on a weekday, arriving around 11:30 am, and we were fortunate enough to get the last available table. The place was bustling, filled with happy diners and hard-working, but cheerful, employees. The interior was quaint and cozy. The menu was quite amazing, filled with a wide variety of breakfast, lunch/dinner, and dessert crepes, along with... More

Went here last year....coming back this year. Different and so delicious. Something out of the ordinary and really nice. So unexpected in a small area. If it had not been for a local that took us we would not have found it under great food in Lancaster, PA. This is really worth a long lovely lunch with friends or for... More

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 their community awareness and activism. Will definitely be returning to Rachel's on... 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 :-)
