This is one of my favorite places to eat in Kansas City. On our last visit, I had the Pollo Verde (savory crepe), and it was excellent. It is probably my favorite of the crepes that I've tried so far. It is spicy, so if you are sensitive to spice, keep that in mind! But I've eaten here several times... More

Desired a memorable breakfast spot for friends to gather the morning after a Kansas City wedding. Chez Elle was our answer. Delightful neighborhood location close to all of our downtown hotels. Relaxed atmosphere and varied crepe menu including buckwheat crepes, reminiscent of our travels to Brittany and superb coffee. Service could be slow for those who like their food "stat"... More

I had the Bonjour breakfast crepe and thought that it was just too fluffy and a bit dry. The latte was pretty good but nothing spectacular. I liked the atmosphere and may give it another try.

Chez Elle is a large old house converted to a creperie and coffee bar with patio seating in front. The entree crepes were good, and the menu has enough different options to suit your taste. I highly recommend the chocolate mousse dessert crepe with raspberry sauce - I'll be back for that one again.

A great place to enjoy a casual meal or coffee with friends. The crepe menu is extensive with something for everyone. Patrons order and pay then have your order brought to your table. The food was excellent with very generous portions. We had a cheese and ham breakfast crepe that was very filling. Coffee drinks and hot chocolate perfect. There... More

Traditional and non traditional crepes. The Le Franco crepes had a wonderful mix of figs, apples and Brie. Arrived with a very large group of friends and the speed and quality of the food was excellent!

A terrific brunch, all crepes with some terrific options! The best is pictured here: au chocolat, a sweet crepe filled with a thick, rich chocolate mousse and garnished with raspberry sauce. Also tasty was the ham and asparagus crepe, though the "hollandaise" was somewhat lacking. Coffee was excellent, as were the mimosas. Counter service was quick, but Sunday crowds meant... More

My friend and I met here for an early dinner. It is in a neighborhood-an eclectic neighborhood I am not cool enough to live in. I digress. The fella at the counter was funny and helpful. The place was not busy at all and I don't understand why after dining there. So, there is a big menu of crepes. We... More

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 look forward to returning on our next... More

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.
