Excellent food and friendly staff

My crepe was decadent, the ambience was quaint and adorable, and the staff was incredibly helpful and friendly, despite my friend and I bringing 4 raucous kids in to their little store. Will absolutely return!

They have such a great assortment of options! Great coffee, Chai tea , crepes, and lunch items. This was our favorite place while we were in town and are now loyal customers when we return :)

Had the ultimate veggie savory and blueberry lemon crepes. Pretty tasty but not much food for 18 bucks. I would not return, though their patio does allow dogs, which is nice if checking out the Square.

Great healthy breakfast, lunch, I do highly recommend the not as healthy however decadent Nutella crepe with strawberries, bananas and whip cream. You can sit outside or in.

The French Market is a delicious restaurant for lunch or even a quick coffee. I ordered the Goat Cheese with Walnuts crêpe. It was creamy and rich on buckwheat, a delicious combination straight from paris! The restaurant is clean and the staff are friendly. Highly recommend!

The French Market is fast becoming an institution. Stop for a crepe and conversation, good coffee, efficient (not gushy) service. You can sit outside with dog or stroller--the inside is small. I can appreciate the restrictions on dish washing in a small space with a small staff, but the amount of paper trash created is impressive. Still, it's a love... More

Surprising little place offering much more than coffee and crepes! An amazing selection of pastries, savories, and craft coffees to enjoy while you sit on the patio and watch the theatre crowd.

This is a wonderful venue serving the best crepes ever. I visited with my Son & his 2 teenage children, who were visiting from England, & my Daughter who lives in Knoxville. The choice of fillings is mind blowing. Voted 100% by three generations.

My husband and I went here and we love everything about it. Beautiful atmosphere and very clean. The service was excellent! When our server brought our food he noticed that they had put tomatoes on my husbands sandwich which had not been requested. He said he would have them remake it but my husband said that he could just take... More
