Description: Papillote is a casual French restaurant located in Downtown Savannah....
Papillote is a casual French restaurant located in Downtown Savannah. Papillote is a family run business, and we make everything here from scratch daily. Derrick is the head chef and deals with everything savory. His mother, Vilma is the pastry chef and deals with all things sweet. Eat in or take out - very casual and a great atmosphere where you order at the counter and enjoy your meal at any open table you want. We have daily specials, and cater to many different dietary constraints!

Croque Monsieur Savannah Plus

This small Broughton Street Diner serves classic French Bistro Cuisine including a killer Croque Monsieur or Madam. I understand they may be closing soon and if so hope they relocate somewhere close soon. Blood orange macaroons too. A nice nice lunch venue with salads and such.

The food and service was great at this charming little cafe. Definitely going back if I'm in the area again. Mu husband and I ordered from the brunch menu and both items ordered were amazing! Coffee was great too!

Coffee was just ok. Croissant was good. It was late on the day, so not much choice. Saw someone get a nice sandwich. Great assortment of tea

Excellent place for a relaxing bite and a cup of coffee. Excellent food but a very laid back atmosphere. The deserts looked amazing but I didn't have room after my Crab & Mango Tartine. I will definitely be back!

I went to the counter, told them I wanted to eat in. Most of their business seems to be take-out. There was one table with customers at it. They pointed me at another table, and I took a seat to wait for someone to take my order. And waited. And waited. The waitress kept walking past me, not looking at... More

My husband and I ate a late lunch and new we wouldn't feel like going out late for dinner so we stopped at Papillote to pick up some sandwiches to eat later at the hotel. Yum. They also have tables here so you can eat it. I noticed a delivery bike out front too. Cute place for lunch or a... More

We are thankful to Trip Advisor members recommending this great little restaurant. It is a gem. The menu is very innovative. Using the best of what is local, the blue crab mango tartine is sensational. Don't be deterred by the"to-go" in their name. There is ample seating inside and a few outside on a nice day.

A brilliant small French-style eatery. Good menu for lunch or brunch, various specials, soups, crepes, sweets, etc. Nicest proprietors and a very pleasant ambiance. Highly recommended, although I overheard that they might be closing soon because of rental cost (I could be mistaken).

When we are in Savannah we love stopping into Papillote for lunch. They have enough tables that you can have a business lunch. but if there are just two of you, you don't feel like the other tables are taking over the atmosphere. The food is wonderful. When I ordered a savory crepe with a fried egg and requested a... More

We stumbled onto this restaurant while walking around Savanah. I had a crepe and my wife had a croque madame (hopefully spelling does not count). Afterwards we enjoyed a dessert crepe and a butter cake with apricot filling (I don't recall the French name). Everything was wonderful. Definitely a place we go back to.
