Dropped in for lunch and was pleasantly surprised. The crepes were awesome, with many fillings to choose from and the warm beverages were equally delicious. The ambiance meanwhile is marvelous- highly recommended.

Pathetic, we have tried to eat here twice. They say they are open on the door, but decide to close early on a sunny Sunday afternoon because they had busy day and are tired. Drive from Kitchener to a restaurant that says they are open and they closed because they are tired. Will never try and spend my money here... More

Thanks for taking the time to review us on Trip Advisor. We recall your visit. We had turned off the open sign but it often will appear to be on when the sun is shining. Two of us came to greet you and we apologized quite sincerely that we were closed. We do make the call, as do most of... More

Writing this a few days after visit and surprised to read the comments about poor service. We called in, desperate for lunch, on a rather damp day. What a find! We all had the most delicious crèpes, filled with wonderfully tasty fillings. A glass of Hob Nob red helped add to the enjoyment of the meal. We were served quickly... More

Words can not begin to express how poor the service was when I went to this restaurant on Saturday with my parents from out of town. I have never before filed a complaint but I actually did so with the tourist office in Elora! Not only were both of the waitresses and the crepe chef extremely rude, but they failed... More

Thanks for taking the time to review us on Trip Advisor. We are always a little shocked to read that someone has found us rude.

Can't speak to the food as a 10 minute wait where we were given the option of sitting at a dirty table or a really tiny "clean" table resulted in 1) barely anyone acknowledging us 2) no menu provided 3) nope nothing... Must be a tourist trap where people go once and never again. The restaurant wasn't that busy, more... More

Each crepe took about 15 minutes to make and the cost was a little steep but I do admit that they were delicious. I prefer the savory crepes compared to the sweet ones. The staff were very friendly and nice as well.

We were new to crepes, but what a wonderful experience! A friend who visits Elora every year recommended Cafe Creperie as the best place in town. We weren't disappointed. My husband and I ordered two different entrees (Chef Specialty with chicken and Mediterranean). Both were excellent. Each came with a side salad. The vegetables were very fresh and tasty. We... More

Exceptional food, service and location. The Cafe is situated right in the heart of town and faces a beautiful park. It is more then just a snack or desert, with a beautiful menu that compliments the creativity and soul of the cafe, it is like a little piece of heaven that you can share with your friends.

I have been coming to Cafe Creperie since it's opening, and have never received anything but a warm welcome, delicious food and a lovely atmosphere. I went the past long weekend, not knowing there was a festival going on in Elora at the time, and still received outstanding service and food despite the busy crowds. The food is always delicious,...
