They are currently under construction and there is barely any seating. It was worth the 25min wait and I think they are so good they could at least double I size.

We had both the savory (ham & cheese) and the sweet (lemon) crepes. Also tried a scoop of their homemade chicken salad which was delicious. The service was great, even though you order at counter and your food is brought to you. Their menu also includes craft beers and hard ciders. Lots of French art and decor and includes outdoor...

My son and I stopped in after seeing The French Market on TripAdvisor. We enjoyed the crepes for breakfast when they opened at 9:00. My 19-year-old son got a Nutella crêpe as his first time to try a crêpe. He was hesitant but loved it! Construction was not a deterrent.

Happened upon this place while visiting Knoxville. I wish I could box them up and bring them back to my state. The food for lunch was amazing. I had a super veggie crepe filled with spinach, mushrooms, artichokes and goat cheese. Then had a chocolate filled croissant.....I thought I had died and gone to heaven. YUMMY!!

My family ate dinner here while in Market Square. My six year old daughter had never had a crepe before, and there was a little area where you could watch them cook. She liked that. We really enjoyed everything we ordered.

I love this small restaurant! it has about 4 tables inside, very cozy and has a couple of tables outside. They have crepes made to order. My favorite is the Monte Cristo crepe, with ham, cheese and raspberry jam. It make my mouth water, just thinking about it. Recently has some problems with building remodeling outside and a wall built... More

Very cute French cafe in a great location. This intimate space proved excellent service and delicious crepes. The lavender vanilla latte is a must. There is an option to have a buckwheat crepe which is gluten free and tastes just as great as the original.

This is our daughter's favorite place and she is right! The crepes are amazing. We had four different egg crepes and all looked amazing and tasted that way, too. I loved the egg and bacon one. We also had a strawberry/creme one to split - it was terrific. This is a tiny place so I think it could get busy... More

It's amazing how many types of crepes you can have. We ordered three sweets (cherry cheesecake - yum, strawberry and cinnamon) and one savory (sausage & eggs) - and we were all quite pleased. The menu also includes croissant options. Prices were reasonable and service was fine. Very worth while.
