We went to pick up various crepes for our friends`s 80-th anniversary.Needless to say,we looked for something special and this seemed the right place. The bill was close to...a lot ! We had crepes filled with smoked salmon,cherry jam,cheese,etc but what really added to the bill were the cute gifts on the side.Tiny silicone purses that looked like cakes and... More

We ordered crepes and sandwiches- both of which were great! The staff made the wrong sandwich for one of the members of our party, and they fixed it immediately and let him take the wrong sandwich home for a snack later. My daughter and I split the ham and cheese crepe for lunch, and then we each had the strawberry/nutella... More

My husband and I stopped here for lunch on the way to Sevierville, TN. Having been to Paris, I love crepes and this place brought back so many memories for me! We sat outside in the patio area at a bistro table with an umbrella to people watch. Savory crepes were amazing. I had the turkey, bacon, and avocado. My... More

Spectacular food and people. I am fairly certain that this restaurant is the reason that I completed my road trip across the country. I heard good things all the way from Houston and I was not disappointed; any dinner crepe will fill you up and make you happy, but make sure to save room for the CBC dessert crepe... it's... More

This is a very unique - counter order - establishment with nice out side dinning. Not much space inside. Not a good rainy day or cold weather spot. The crepes are tremendous and come up pretty quick. They offer other style breads and sandwich offerings all are very very tasty!! . A weekend favorite, expect big lines on Sunday. worth... More

I just ate here for the first time, consuming a Parisian ham and cheese. Very, very good. Wonderful atmosphere!

Small very small, but it was delicious, servers very nice and decorated very French: Elegant yet simplistic. Prices were right on. Definitely would recommend to anyone visiting Market Square in Knoxville. It takes the "white bread" out of Knoxville, as it is creative and serves delicious food.. I forget what I had, but remember thinking I would want to go... More

I visited The French Market for the first time this morning during the Market Square Farmer's Market. I had the Turkey, Bacon and Avocado Crepe and shared a Lemon Sugar Crepe. I thought the prices were reasonable considering the generous portion size (I am still full). I enjoyed the savory crepe alot more than I did the sweet one, but... More

This was a nice little place. You order your food at the counter and it's brought to you. Positives: Crepe dishes are tasty and fresh, and the crepes are made with buckwheat flour, which gives them oomph. Disappointments: Beer, but no wine. French market, crepes--and BEER?

We ate there this morning for breakfast. It was a nice area, especially if you have a dog. There is ample outdoor eating. I liked the food and the service was friendly. A little pricey for breakfast. There were 2 of us and we shared a latte and it was 30 dollars. No regrets, would eat here again.
