Description: The Crepe Du Jour was established in 1997 by husband and wife team Mustapha and Donna Snoussi. They had just relocated to Baltimore after living in Paris, France and began their first business by opening an upscale kiosk in the outside atrium of The Village of Cross Keys where they sold crepes, panini, salads and more. The business was a success and they had acquired the clientele needed which would later support them in the opening of their Mt. Washington restaurant in 2000. The restaurant has expanded with the opening of an all year round heated terrace. Crepe Du Jour has been part of the "Zagat" restaurant guide since 2003 where they describe dining on the terrace on a long summer evening as "almost feeling like Paris". The owner is often present to greet the guests and assure the quality of the food is at its best.

First time there. Stumbled into it by accident. I had the ham and cheese crepe and it was outstanding. The home fries were a little too spicy for my taste. Polite and helpful waiter. Very clean bathrooms.

The name doesn't do this place justice. They have great escargot, mussels prepared six different ways, and lots of other options besides the crepes. Though the crepes are very special, with great variety, come here for all kinds of food. The ambiance is quaint, and very peaceful, unlike the noisy bar scenes nearby. This is a great place to relax... More

My wife and I went recently for a late lunch. Unfortunately it was one of the cold days that we have been having in Baltimore. The restaurant was freezing. Every time the front door was opened a blast of cold air followed. That being said, we thoroughly enjoyed the meal. Neither of us are experts on French cuisine but we... More

Ordered the special, which was "lamb chops encrusted in a mustard sauce." The term "encrusted" connotes something more than "swimming in dijon". You take lamb chops and drown them in an excessive amount of gloppy mustard. It was almost like the chops were boiled in the mustard. Chef blew that one bigtime. I think I'll stick with the crepes, which... More

Thank you, trip advisor reviewers, for making me aware of is neighborhood gem. I ordered a delightful shrimp en crepe dish which could not have been better. My dining partner ordered the hangar steak, and he said the steak was cooked perfectly and, impressively, that the sauce accompanying it was the best he's ever tasted (and he's eaten steaks in...

Really enjoyed my glass of wine and dinner here. I was visiting with a friend and she decided to treat me to this place for dinner. I ordered a crepe that was on their specials menu. It had mushrooms and artichoke hearts and they added in shrimp after the wait person's suggestion. They brought me the wrong wine, I ordered... More

NEVER going back, he needs Customer... More

GF is a crepe fiend. This usually satisfies her cravings. Everything here has always been very very good. The staff gets a little overwhelmed on heavy brunch hours so service suffers slightly, but not nearly enough to keep us from coming back. Awesome portions, fresh ingredients and a cozy atmosphere. Great spot.

Artwork for the eyes and caviar to the palate. Don't be fooled by the name, this is a true French bistros restaurant with a magical chef. Salmon, filet mignonette, duck, cow author vin, boeuf bourgignon deliciously presented and served in heaping portions. Extensive winelist and fast service. Would have loved it if waiter spoke French and was more elegant to... More

This wonderful restaurant seated my large party of 15 immediately after we left the Mt. Washington Tavern when we were insulted by their staff. We were so impressed with the friendly staff and the food was absolutely AMAZING! I had their Cote de Beouf and it tasted incredible, while my son had not 1 but 2 of their delicious crepes.... More
