Great Venue for People-Watching

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

My daughters and I stopped in for lunch on the Saturday of the Dogwood Arts Festival Arts and Crafts festival downtown. This was our first visit to The French Market. My oldest daughter likes to make crepes at home and we wanted to try these. Wow! These were awesome! First, when we ordered, the owner made us aware that they... More

Had the salmon crepe which surpassed all expectations. The food is exceptionally good, especially based upon the price, which is very inexpensive. Should you like crepes, you really can't go wrong here. It's like a piece of Montreal came South!

Stopped in for lunch while passing thru. The four of us shared two each of savory and sweet crepes. No major complaints overall besides that the prices seemed a little steep for portion size/add ons etc.... *roast beef and cheese with au jus- solid. *monte cristo with over easy egg on top- delicious! Favorite one we had. (The egg was... More

Traveling from Detroit to Florida and spent the night in downtown Knoxville. Walked to the Market Center Mall which is pedestrian friendly and lined with restaurants and quaint shops. Since it was March 17th the bars were filled so I checked out The French Market Creperie. They had an "Irish" Crepe which was their smoked salmon savory crepe with spinach... More

I liked it! They serve beer and crepes for breakfast. It sure beats all the Starbucks knock-off coffee shops around downtown.

Coming from France I have to say that this is sort of a deception. The crepes are OK but apart from the name there's nothing French on them. It's worth a visit but don't expect to find something like that in France.

If you like crepes, you'll love this place. Sweet and savory selections plus great coffee. My husband and I order one of each and split. It's the perfect brunch/lunch.
