Everything Crepe

This is a French crepe restaurant tucked into a wing of what was once a large municipal building on a side street in Hilo. It is an artsy, small operation - when I was there, I only saw the chef and one server. And as other patrons came in, they seemed to know them all by name! The crepes were... read more

I had a crepe and the roasted red pepper soup. Both of them were very delicious and big portions! Only problem is we waited for almost 45 minutes to get our food because there were only two people working. So don't go here if you are in a hurry!

Very small intimate cafe with fresh made crepes. A,bit slow service but they make it all there where you can see it. Friendly cheery place to just eat and relax.

These folks really make the effort. Attention to detail really made the meal. Crepes are made while you watch with fresh and interesting ingredients. The salad was artfully arranged with carrot curls around a baby mushroom and their own salad dressing.

We were looking for a place to have lunch in Hilo and our Gramin found this lovely restaurant for us. The crepes were huge so we chose to have 1/2 crepe & salad. We were really glad we had the salad because it was the best salad I've ever had. The crepe was lovely. The waitress saw us walking from... More

Looks like a little diner in France.....absolutely wonderful Crepes. We had Parisian & Russian Strogenoff. And then topped it off with an Apple and Cinnamon crepe with a scoop of ice cream and whipping cream. Skipped dinner that night.

If you know Hilo there have not been many options for different cultural experiences in eating. When I first went to the restaurant I was truly impressed and thoroughly enjoyed the meal. I enjoyed it on each subsequent visit. Delicious crepes; Nice portions; Very homey feeling; staff is wonderful; prices are moderate. I think they finally got their license and... More

So, many eons ago I worked for The Magic Pan Restaurant in San Mateo California so thought perhaps this was a related restaurant - but I was wrong! This started at the markets and - from what I heard - she was so popular, she opened this little cafe. We wandered in on a day when most places in Hilo... More

We happened to arrive here just as they were unlocking the doors. We were the only two people. Great setting and clean looking restaurant. However service was a little slow. Prices were average and the food was alright. Crepes were smaller than what we were expecting.
