I feel like I am visiting Paris when I go there! So glad they opened one in Farragut too! Love it! It is great.

I eat lunch here fairly often and I always say I am going to try something else, but the veggie deluxe with feta is just too wonderful. I also love that I can eat on the patio with my dog in nice weather.

I can't say enough about the French Market. The food is consistently excellent. The crepes melt in your mouth, and there are so many delicious fillings to choose from, you'll need to visit multiple times to sample them all. Try any of their sandwiches,as well. None will disappoint. Their cafe au laits surpass any served by the mega coffee shops.... More

Visited 1/30/15 with family. 1st visit will be the last. Ordered 4 French baguettes and one crepe. Wife gave crepe 2 or 3 stars out of 5. Son and I gave the baguette sandwiches only 1 star but deserved less. Bread was literally as hard as a rock. Thought we would break our teeth. As it was after 7 pm,... More

Lovely little cafe for a relaxed breakfast. It was busy when we arrived but we ordered at the counter and the staff were very helpful, enquiring if we had a place to sit. Service was very prompt so there was a fairly quick turnover of people - there are a few tables outside if the weather co-operates. Ordered the french... More

A very unique restaurant serving some tasty food. My daughter had the Nutella crepes which she gobbled down. I had the vegetarian humus croissant and it had great flavor. There was a 30 minute wait but it seemed like a great place to socialize with friends.

By far the best Crepes we've ever eaten. Great location on Gay Street in the trendy section of Knoxville. I can't get over parking at front door and walking 5 paces to the door. The folks in the restaurant were engaging and the crepes are incredible, as is the many choices of coffee based beverages. I will never pass through... More

I ordered the egg and cheese crepe, it was ok. I ordered with a side of bacon and here is the reason for a poor review. I am a bacon fan and this was a sad excuse for bacon. It was the premade stuff. (the kind Subway serves) and they have the nerve to charge $2.50 for it, should not... More
