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

A creperie in Hilo? Could not believe it - food was fantastic - salads fresh, "hearty" crepes expertly made and perfect. And the dessert crepes - wow... off the chart! Highly recommend! With regard to service - the place is small, and when it gets busy can overwhelm the staff momentarily. But this is Hawaii - relax...

Family went there for lunch today and ended up leaving after waiting forever for service. Food might be great, but only if you can get someone to take your order.

Had a wonderful Father's day breakfast in downtown Hilo this morning. Our daughter heard about this new restaurant at work and we are always looking for someplace new and different. This was really a delightful meal. I had the California Garden Veggie Crepe, with 2 eggs over medium and a side of hash browns and a glass of fresh-squeezed orange... More

Went in with such expectations -- both because of ambiance and tripadvisor reviews. We were thoroughly disappointed and simply gaped at one another in amazement. The food was OK, and a person might go back for that. But the service was simply the worst any of us had had in a half-dozen trips to Hawaii, on any island, at any... More
