“YES”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2013 via mobile

Absolutely hits the spot at 2am, drunk munchies or sober munchies, I come here a lot. The food is really tastey and the menu is pretty big for a place that only makes crepes! Fast service and patient employees who put up with drunk patrons!

“Great crepes!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2013

I had the veggie crepe and the Obama crepe (nutella and berries). They are around $7 each but the portion is big. They both tasted good! The berries in Obama were very fresh. I had extra fun telling my friends that I ate Obama in DC. LOL!

“Amazing late night spot”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2012

After going to the clubs and nightlife, when you will eat basically anything, dont settle. This spot is great for a late night option (open until 4AM). They offer sweet and savory crepes. I had the "Obama" which is a lovely sweet crepe.

“Really wonderful food, good prices”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2012

Both savory and sweet crepes were STUFFED with food -- much more than is properly French, but we're in America, darnit, and we like our food. It makes them a really good value, as a side bonus.

Despite being a crepe fan, I loathe Nutella (just a personal thing). If you also don't care for it, the number of sweet crepes are somewhat limited. However, they were more than willing to make me a strawberry-banana with white chocolate instead, which was quite delightful.

“Disappointing”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2012

Don't let yourselves be fooled by the fancy website, or even by the appealing aromas wafting through the creperie! The crepes sold at Crepeaway barely deserve the name.

While the crepe is warm, it already feels rubbery amd dry, not soft and buttery as it should be. A plain crepe, without the add-ons, like nutella and strawberries to give it some taste, would have been inedible.

The worse part is, once it cools off, the crepe hardens, so much so that each bite puts your teeth in peril.

This creperie does not do credit to the French delicacy. If it so happens that you are ensnared by the mouthwatering smell and look of the place, and the food does not immediately scare you away, the experience of its poor quality, and its unacceptably disproportionate prices, ultimately will.
