The workers were speaking French to one-another and to the guests. The food was amazing - both the savory and the sweet crepes. The ordering process was unusual. We were told to sit down, look at a menu, then come to the counter to order,...More

A little bit of Paris right here in Iowa!! A tiny place — perhaps 7 booths and 2 tables — with a warm and welcoming vibe. Both savory and sweet crepes, made fresh and served artfully. Eat them slowly and savor every bite to concentrate...More

My favorite place in IC. I'm sad it's only listed in the dessert options and not for dinner. Their Savory Crepe's are amazing I never get dessert at other restaurants, but I do at Crepes De Luxe. Super friendly staff (owners) make the Crepes right...More

These crepes are amazing. I come here often, and usually bring someone along who hasn't tried Crepes De Luxe yet--so far, no one has been disappointed. There is a large menu (pretty much just crepes), both savory and sweet. The feel of the place is...More

Wonderful. Quaint. Personal. Just a tremendous experience. We were concerned about cross contamination as two of us are Celiac. They had great explanations and did all of the cleaning and preparation right in front of us. Just tremendous. Tasty and very well prepared and presented....More

Wonderfully healthy food that is delicious and beautifully presented. The owners and staff are very friendly and kind. It is an intimate simple setting. Two of us ordered three crepes, two savory and one sweet, and we were very full afterwards. The Herb Chicken crepe...More

The crepes were great. We went for breakfast and were first in line. Three of us ordered two crepes. Others came in after us. It took at least 10 minutes to get out first crepes. Our second crepe took over 30 minutes. It makes sense...More

At this darling cafe, "sweet" and "savory" top the two columns of the menu chalkboard. Soooo many delicious crepe choices, reasonably priced. You'll love this cafe.

Craving a taste of Paris in Iowa? Go to Crepes De Luxe Cafe for sweet or savory crepes like the popular "Monkey Treat" with bananas and Nutella, or the L'Ocean, Salmon, Aioli, Lemon Juice, and Swiss Cheese. Chef Hicham has created a little taste of Paris in Iowa City and it is delicious. We have eaten here many times and never been disappointed. Within walking distance of the downtown hotels and popular pedestrian mall, it is a great restaurant for two or a small group. There is limited seating but any wait is worth it. If you are looking for an alternative to the "greasy spoon" breakfast or fast food dinner, try Crepes De Luxe Cafe. You will walk away thinking you just left a bistro near the Eiffel Tower.
