Yum

The place is smaller but we were there on a Sunday morning and got seated. The food was excellent. We had a ham and cheese crepe, a steak crepe and both were good. A huge shout out for the chai I ordered. It was the best I've had in a year. Can't wait to go back!

Enjoyed our second visit to Rachel's; this time at the new location. We had dinner on the patio. There were six in our party and there were more than enough menu selections to satisfy our tastes. From healthy choices to decadent ones, we happily satisfied our crepe cravings!

Had the Smoked Salmon crepe & split the Fresh Fruit crepe with lunch date. Both crepes were very good & the prices are very reasonable. Will definitely return when we come back to visit Little Brook Orchids greenhouse in Lancaster. Wish I could post pictures of our dessert crepe. :)

Early this year I visited the Skinny Pancake, a sort of bohemian creperie and performance space along Lake Champlain. I hope the shows are good, because the crepes don’t hold a Bunsen burner to Rachel’s Cafe & Creperie in Lancaster. Her skinny pancakes come out of the kitchen piping hot, satisfyingly chewy with lovely crisp edges, folded into neat cones,... More

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
