I had never eaten savory crepes before I had lunch here for the first time. Apparently, after reading some of the other reviews, these aren't "reeeeeal Parisian-style crepes," or "authentic French crepes," but, who cares? All I know is that they are a nice, different texture to wrap around good sandwich fillers. This is a nice lunch spot for sandwiches,... More

No place else like it in the Lancaster area; don't let the tiny setting or decor fool you. No one makes crepes like Rachel; lovely surprises in store for those braving the on-street parking in downtown.

For a cute, fun little breakfast or lunch place with good coffee drinks strongly recommend this place. For the best crepes, try Paris LOL. But still not a bad crepe and it's a fun little place. Service can be spotty but more in a "the sky is falling" kind of way with frantic servers than rudeness. Cute for 20 somethings... More

Rachel makes it happen. It's as good as a Creperie gets. Don't miss it.

I go here all the time. It is my favorite place to do takeout (call ahead). I always get the Capri and a Napoleon's Weakness. It is a cute little place. Go early to get a table at lunch. It can sometimes take awhile as each crepe is individually made. I am not sure they have much other than crepes... More

You will not think your in France but for Lancaster this is a decent place to find a unique crepe for lunch or a delicious crepe for dessert

We've gone to Rachel's a numerous amount of times and we have never had poor service or poor food. The servers are all really nice and really good at what they do, and the crepes are always awesome! Plus, they love Nutella! Weather it's dinner or dessert, you won't be dissapointed.

Rachel’s is my favorite place in Lancaster by far. I go every time I’m down that way, without exception. The crepes are delicious and they have a wide selection that incorporates all kinds of different styles of cuisine—Thai, Italian, American, etc. So if you’re not big on typical French food, don’t worry—you’re bound to find something you like. You can... More

My husband & I rarely eat out as we are very careful with our finances. However, for my birthday, my husband wanted to take me somewhere for lunch. Rachel's Creperie immediately came to mind. It is a trendy little cafe which reminded us of a restaurant we had visited in New York City the night we became engaged - tiny,... More

If you want the best crepes in the world, go to France, and don't complain that they just don't make 'em here in the U.S. like they do in Paris. You can't try to compare American attempts at crepes just as you can't rival a true American hamburger. I've had them all over the world and nobody can top our... More
