We LOVE Rachels, there food staff, space and offerings are the best. Great place to eat or simply gather. We both do love their food.

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!

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
