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 went for breakfast, my bf got the American breakfast and I got the breakfast croissant. It was good. The crepes were the star , definitely meet our expectations. I got the lilikoi cheese cake I wish there was more filling lol and my bf got the new England crepe. Our waitress was terrific

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.

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.
