I'm nice little spot to enjoy breakfast or lunch. I was with someone who doesn't really care for crepes, however they really enjoyed their meal. open air seating by the window was a nice touch.

we went on a Friday and there were only 2 staff to serve a full restaurant. The chef and one waiter. The restaurant was boiling hot and the service was slow. I ordered a Longboard beer only to be told that it is the last one and you will have to switch to Heineken. Small thing but why run out... More

Husband and I both ordered 1/2 crepe & salad menu item. Delicious and substantial salad (butter head lettuce, tomato, cucumber, avocado, artichoke hearts and feta cheese) and shared two different savory crepe creations. They made us full sized portions! Enjoyable lunch, cheerful service, good prices, recommended.

Located on the first floor of a building a couple of streets back from the bay in Hilo, we found excellent crepes, good service, and no tourist crowds. Look for a black and white sign with a crepe pan on it.

Enjoyed a late breakfast at Le Magic Pan. The crepes were good, but not great. Our group of four had mixed opinions on the crepes. The eggs in the crepe Benedict's were over poached. The Chicken Provençal was good, but not typical breakfast fare. Plus, the crepes were crispy, when they should have been moist and chewy. Service was slow.... More

Small and intimate and in one of the oldest buildings in Hilo town. They even have the now so popular choice of gluten free crepes.

Discovered this by accident, while wandering around the back streets of Hilo. Like a lot of unintended finds, this was a very pleasant one. Excellent food, wonderful and friendly service, and a superb ambiance.

We loved the space, the food, the service and the live music. Highlight of the meal was the dessert special - papaya crepe was to simply to die for!

Didn't think one of the first restaurants I'd see in Hawaii would be once specializing in French crepes. Very nice surprise, though. The crepes are crisp, fresh and delicious. The Volcano desert crepe was hilarious. And quite good. It is a touch slow, however. If you have the time and don't mind a bit of a wait, it's fantastic. If... More

I give the food 4 stars but the service 2 stars due to how slowly the food came out. Went here for a quick lunch on the way to Rainbow and Akaka Falls. Quick it was not (they only have 3 crepe making stones going) but the food was delicious. We had savory crepes for lunch (Florentine special was delicious)... More
