A great little find!

Our daughter and son in law recommended this as a great place to meet a friend. It took a while for our orders to come but once they were delivered, they were all excellent as well as generous in size. The wait staff was very good. The decor very eclectic and fun.

I love waking up on a Sunday morning and going to Chez Elle. It's a fantastic spot in KC for crepes! I'm lucky enough to only live about 5 mins away from Chez Elle so I get to enjoy it all the time. The line to order is long especially on the weekends but the line moves pretty quickly.

Ordered #10 crepe with bacon, pesto and Brie. It was semi warm at best. The Brie was in big chunks, unmelted, the bacon was tough and in long strips that required a knife. Too expensive for the quality. The place was not crowded so that's no excuse for cold food. Will not be back.

Incredible creperie. I always bring friends visiting from out of town, this is the closest you can get to a real french crepe; even the place gives you the vibe like Crêperie Contemporaine in Paris. My only problem i would say it's the mimosas, i think it all depends on who makes it, sometimes they are too strong and other... More

I had Maison and it was more than I could eat with spinach, mushrooms, and Swiss cheese. Wonderful. The coffee was fresh and very full bodied. He had chorizo, eggs, cheese with a yummy sauce. I had to have a couple bites. Will be on our favorites list! Outside seating was an extra surprise for a beautiful day.

My husband and I were very happy about going to Chez Elle to try their overly popular crepes BUT were very disappointed in many ways. It took quite a long time to order, looking around the place it was obvious they had a lot of staff members but were not at all on track. The espresso machine was wasting a... More

One of our stops with "Taste of Kansas City Tour". This was our last stop and we sampled two desert crepes, the Citron lemon curd with strawberries and the Paris nutella and banana. Wonderful.

I have been here many times but it has been over a year since my last visit. The lobster bisque is the best in town - flavorful with a bite. Don't miss ordering this. Disappointing because the crepe was too thick. It was more like a thin pancake than a crepe and mushy not like the crepes were a year... More

We tried out Chez Elle for the first time today and it was so good! We can't wait to return! We went for breakfast. I had the Patriot crepe (blueberries, bananas, strawberries, creme anglaise and whipped cream) my husband had the Paris crepe (Nutella, bananas and add peanut butter). Both were so yummy! He had Cafe' Latte and I had... More

Met friends for breakfast & was pleased to find that we had beat the crowd. Walked right up to order & for a group of 6, had out crepes in no time. The staff was friendly & we enjoyed seeing our crepes made to order. Makes you feel like you've been whisked away to Paris.
