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 had the best breakfast here. I loved the crepes. I had the salted Carmel with a side of milk. Definitely would recommend and come back again!

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

Two of my friends and I decided to have Sunday brunch in downtown Knoxville yesterday before we saw The Nutcracker, and I have to say that we found a hidden gem in The French Market and creperie. Everything looked delicious; my Nutella and strawberry crepe was amazing. I also hAd the Lavendar Latte, which was different in a good way.... More

We enjoy the ambiance and the food very much. We have tried several different crêpes and they are all perfectly prepared. Fresh ingredients and pleasant service make this one of favorite places to have breakfast in Knoxville.

Every time I visit regardless of day and time, its always great. This is a great local place to go located in the heart of downtown. I always go after dinner for a dessert crepe. Just as good as the ones I had in Paris back in the summer.

French Market is a lovely little creperie in the heart of downtown Knoxville. Both the sweet and savory crepes are amazing and freshly cooked to order. The coffee is a delight. If you're craving macaroons, they have theirs imported from France. Enjoy!

I chose this restaurant because of tripadvisor & pleased that we went to the French Market. Traveling with vegetarians in the south where pork fat rules can be a challenge. So we were pleased with all the options on the menu. I chose the smoked salmon crepe but did not notice the buckwheat option until after ordering. But I did... More
