“Awesome crepes!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2014

I've been here many times and have had lunch crepes and dessert crepes. All of them have been excellent! We love coming here for lunch or just dessert. The other desserts are also really good too!

“Sweet Tooth Satisfaction”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2014

Crepe's were excellent, well prepared and so tasty. Didn't have a bad experience in four visits. Pastry's are excellent and the speciality coffee's were good as well. The place is a little run down, but if you crave a dessert or something to satisfy your sweet tooth this is the place to be. Friendly service, worth a visit if you are in the area.

“Helena's in Carlisle PA”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2014

Carlisle PA has a few good restaurants & artsy stores & even an indie theater within a few blocks. Helena's a great place for breakfast, brunch or coffee next to the Carlisle theater. It has homemade macaroons and other wonderful sweet treats. Also serves crepes. My friend had cheese, sausage white crepe which was delicious! I had buckwheat and spinach with dill crepe & it fell apart and was rather tasteless. (Suggest they add cheese to the spinach & I'll skip the buckwheat next time). Casual atmosphere. Compares favorably to the ubiquitous diner-type breakfast/lunch elsewhere.

“Best deserts”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2014

Great place to stop for deserts. The cookies are eclectic and fun to try. The cakes are always original. Servers are sweet and helpful.

“Ok for desserts, not impressed with lunch offerings”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2013

I was drawn in by the name of the restaurant, and was expecting a lot more chocolate desserts. There were 4 of us. The hot chocolate was good, but it tasted like the hot chocolate I make at home with Hershey's unsweetened cocoa. Three in the group had the clam chowder, and thought it was excellent. I had a turkey and provolone crepe with red pepper mayonnaise, and it was OK, nothing I'd ever order again. I didn't try any of the 6 dessert crepes, as there wasn't one that appealed to both my husband and me. They did have many scrumptious looking desserts, several types of cheesecake (we had 2types at the table, both delicious!), a flourless gluten free chocolate mini bundt cake (the only chocolate cake offered), apple pie, carrot cake, cream puffs and a few other cakes, as well as an assortment of cookies and dark chocolate candies. I'd suggest skipping the lunch sandwiches or crepes, and going for one of the desserts. There is on-street parking, and while we felt lucky finding a parking space right in front of the restaurant, we failed to notice the parking meters that were partially obscured by the Christmas decorations, so 5 minutes after we entered the store, we got slapped with a parking ticket!
