“Crepe Heaven!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

Stopped in after church for a quick lunch and were so happy to find such variety and quality. Even our vegan friends at home would have had choices! Half a crepe and a salad $13. Too full to try a dessert crepe, but they sounded yummy too! Surroundings pretty drab, but you'll hardly notice.

“We ate here three times!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2013

We were only spending one night in Hilo. We arrived at Kona after a long flight and immediately drove over the Saddle Road to get to our hotel. Then we wanted dinner and had read in one of the Big Island magazines about this little French Creperie. It was a short walk from our hotel and we enjoyed the atmosphere and the food so much that we returned the next morning for breakfast and then again, for a late lunch, before driving around the south of the island back to our Time Share at Waikoloa Resort.

Portions are a good size for the price. The chocolate dessert crepe was delicious. They are open for breakfast now --were not in the past. Music some evenings. Small and service might not be fast so enjoy a glass of wine and some music -- it's Hawaii!

“Crepes are wonderful at the Magic Pan”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

For breakfast or lunch, this is the place to go in Hilo. The variety of crepes is wonderful and tasty. On top of that, the prices are so reasonable that I had to look twice to believe it. we ate there several times while in Hilo and were never disappointed. They have only three crepe "griddles" (or whatever they are called) so the one drawback is that you may have to wait a bit for your crepe. But the decor is attractive and the service friendly. The location is also easy to find, being on the easterly edge of downtown Hilo.

“Best restaraunt in hilo!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2013 via mobile

From the moment we walked in we were impressed. Great atmosphere and friendly service. Fantastic wines- not a big selection but they pair wonderfully with the food. The escargot was the best I've ever had. And the house salads were beyond amazing- I will go back just for the house dressing alone. We had both the Stroganoff and la Provençal crepe- both fantastic and melody of flavors. The volcano chocolate crepe was sinfully delicious. I recommend this to anyone at anytime. Great food and a memorable experience you will remeber.
