“Delicious food and great service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

It is so exciting to have an authentic creperie right in downtown Harrisburg. We were delighted when we saw the extensive menu of both savory and sweet crepes. We ate one with salmon and capers that was topped with an egg...unbelievably yummy! The owner is so friendly and plays lively music and makes it feel like you are eating in a little cafe in Europe. So nice and definitely recommended for lunch, dinner or a snack.

“Fantastic food, ambiance, experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2013

Five friends and I recently ate at Au Bon Lieu for dinner while on a business trip and had a fantastic experience. The menu is crepes only, with dozens of savory and sweet options. Everyone's food was delicious. Seating is sparse as the creperie is small (only five small round tables, I believe), but the location in downtown Harrisburg is great. One of the best parts was being right next to the crepe stovetops and seeing the cooks prepare our crepes.

“WOW”

The crepe's at this place were so fantastic it is hard to describe. The food is fresh and has a real good flavor. The Belgium Chocolate with Strawberries were exceptional.

“Captivating crepes!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2013 via mobile

My friend and I have recently been into discovering cute places to eat in Harrisburg. So far this is the best one we've found.
It was rated number one on a list of 249 places to eat so we decided to try it out. It was totally worth the visit!
We ordered a chicken, mozeralla, pesto & tomato crepe & for dessert a blueberry crepe with chocolate inside & also a plain Nutella one. Each crepe was decorated & marked with something special. They were simply Devine! The service was amazing and the owner is such a sweet guy.
Also it's very cheap! For 3 crepes & a coffee the bill was only $19! Very affordable yet delicious!

“For Something Different.....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2013

Wanted to try something different for Mother's Day and found this option through TA. Glad we tried it as it was a fun and delicious experience. Family of four - two adults and two teenage girls. We got savory crepes as lunch - mine had chicken, mushrooms, onions, and brie - then we got sweet crepes for dessert. I had chocolate with bananas. If they had put them in a paper wrapper it would have been just like Paris.

Cost for 3 savory and 4 sweet crepes plus two Diet Cokes - $43.

Couple points -
* Other reviews talk about the few tables - very true. Only six inside and a couple outside. We went early to beat the lunch crowd - saw many people turn away due to the lack of tables. FYI - we never felt rushed, so don't worry about that possibility.
* It does take awhile and each is made to order, so this is not a quick dining option.

We really enjoyed ourselves and have now added Au Bon Lieu to our very short list of special options in Harrisburg.
