This was a wonderful idea for snacks and coffee! The crepes were large and such a wonderful varieties! It was very busy which is wonderful but just be prepared. The staff was helpful and great! It is a quaint place that does not need to be missed!

When my daughter comes home from college, this is where she asks to go. It's a 25 minute drive from our house, but she loves their crepes. We have been there multiple times and have never had poor service or food. We have been there on busy days as well as days where you can immediately get a table. Portions... More

I always have a good experience here! The servers were pleasant and the food is exceptional. Last time I went, both of us could not decide what we wanted so we agreed on two and split them. It was the best decision because a whole one of each would have been too much for us. We split a sweet crepe... More

My last visit to this restaurant is unforgettable! it's a creperie spot, which has everything you desire, when it comes to crepes! The crepes are incredible in taste! The savory and the sweet ones. I almost tried every savory crepe, from their menu! Each one has a different and great taste to it! Their vanilla chai latte is to die... More

Went to Rachel's on Mother's Day. Needless to say, there was a line out the door and around the block. We were touch and go on time. The first wave had filled all of the seats. The food looked good and had been recommended by Q's up the street, so we decided to wait. Unfortunately, our timing would not work... More

This place is charming with fantastic food. The prices are reasonable and the decor is fun. If you want a treat take advantage of the many Nutella offerings. The smoked salmon crepe is out of this world. There is convenient, but limited parking behind the restaurant. They even have creeps for kids!

This restaurant is very good, and I am pleased to have been there. There were really nice staff and they were always offering us drinks and food. And the food! The crepes were very, very, very, very good! I had ordered the fruit one and I couldn't wait! My parents said that I had emptied half of it in 30... More

The food was quite good and very filling. There is a very good choice of crepes - breakfast, specialty, build your own and desert - as well as salads and homemade soup. They also have a special menu, which includes regular and desert crepes, soup, and drinks. The restaurant was about 90% full when we were there and it was... More

When venturing to this place, the wait was extremely long, but it was worth the wait. The food was great and the desserts were extremely tasty! Different than anything else in the Downtown area, I'll soon be a regular, I'm sure!
