Beautiful, charming place with very nice service, the nutella mocha was amazing and even a regular black coffee was delicious. I had a Spanish Omlet crepe and it was out of this world! Definitely great experience and I hope to come back in the future.

This place rocks! Enjoyed a fantastic dinner tonight of a kids ham and cheese, the Blackbird (get a side of salsa), and the special Pesto Crêpe. We shared 2 orders of hash browns as well. You won't leave hungry. Service was quick and all the servers worked together well. Thanks for a lovely dinner!

I went here once, and I never stopped coming! Even after we moved, we often drive back to Lancaster to eat here for lunch or brunch. There are many different types of crepes, such as plain, fruit, and salad type crepes. Even with the cheap price, I think that this food could be served at a place for kings and... More

Rachel's is by far my favorite place for a quick, delicious meal. The crepes are very filling. It's BYOB so you can have a meal with friends for under $10 a person. I have taken friends, dates, and my mom here and it's always a winner. Try the chai tea latte and fill up on a dinner crepe!

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 a visit for good... 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!!
