I have eaten here on several occasions since having first eaten crepes in France. Savory or sweet - each crepe has been more than delicious. There has never been a long wait to order and the crepes are prepared quickly. Staff is efficient and friendly, crepes are good size and decent price. First time recommendation: try roast beef and cheddar... More

Amazing place. Excellent crepes. Tried different ones, loved the smoked salmon one and the goat cheese one. Of course the nutella/banana crepe is a must too. Very generous in their ingredients. Great chocolate eclairs too. That is now my daily breakfast place everytime i visit knoxville.

We stopped by here for some refreshments. In addition to coffee, there is a limited selection of beer and good sodas. The decor is cute. We did not eat, so I will not comment on their food. I thought of purchasing some macaroons, but 6 small macaroons were $8.95- a bit too much for me at the time. We did... More

We were fortunate to pick this restaurant for breakfast on a recent trip to Knoxville and we were more than pleasantly surprised by how wonderful the strawberry crepe was! I also really enjoyed their omelet. I highly recommend The French Market!

Nice place, macaroons priced out the door( meaning too much). Crepes where okay, expected something a little bit more though. Very good atmosphere. Good service & very clean.

Visited the Farragut location and enjoyed the strawberries and cream, and the bananas and caramel crepes. They were delicious! The little spot is great for lunch or a quick bite since they have savory crepe offerings and other menu items as well but we had to have those amazing dessert crepes and we were not disappointed.

We came in for the Garth Brooks concert and on way home stopped to have late breakfast here. It was a delightful little place and thought we were in France. Crepes were delish and we ate outside. So much fun and the staff were very pleasant. Only thing we parked on the road and read the sign three times and... More
