Pretty good!

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 :-)

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.
