Nice Place for Casual Good Food

It's a place everyone I know enjoys, the crepes are good and large. I always think they're to big then I start eating and devour the whole thing. I don't go often any more though, gluten sensitive and there aren't really any options for me. I do still go with family and friends at times. Worth... read more

Rachel's is truly an excellent establishment. They have the best crepe creations and the staff is welcoming and friendly. The coffee is fresh, the smoothies are delicious and the food is some of the best in Lancaster. I love the Nutella and banana crepe with an iced coffee. I highly suggest Rachel's for breakfast or brunch!

Went 1/2 hour before closing for a dessert crepe; Delicious! Had the fresh berry cheesecake crepe (get it with the Ali Fausnaught Special). Service was prompt and friendly; we weren't rushed, even though they were getting ready to close. Will return for breakfast at some point. Highly recommend!

I had the smoked salmon dill infused crepe, he had the cheeseburger crepe with hash browns! Both excellent! Service was also prompt and efficient. Nice coffee drink selection and adorable atmosphere. I cannot wait to go back, they have crepes for any time of the day whether you're in for breakfast or to satisfy a sweet craving!!

What a fun, very good place to eat! Great selection of creative, delicious crepes, whether you're ready for breakfast, lunch, dinner, or dessert. Well, why not try all? Great coffees and salads too, with occasional other side dishes. Smoothies are for you to sip and smile - try The Louvre. I'm making myself hungry! Oh and nice decor! Just wish... More

We tried three crepes: the ham and Brie, the smoked salmon, and the Capri. They all had good flavor, though we found the actual crepes a bit on the touch side. The wait was a bit long at lunch rush hour, and the level of noise quite high. Overall, a good meal and an average experience.

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!
