“La Crepacabana - Good anytime”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 10, 2012

We came across Crepacabana via Tripadvisor, and i'm thankful we did. The reviews are correct, this place is awesome. Its tiny, but has an amazing selection of crepes...including breakfast crepes and dessert crepes. David (from France), the owner, was a cool guy.
Can't beat the crepes, so go and give it a shot. We came here one morning at 9am but they were still closed, and went there once at 3am and they were still open (supposed to close at 12pm). ENJOY!

“Must Eat!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2012

Just came back from Mexico and I made an account just to tell you all about the fabulous places I've been to! It is definetly a 'hole in the wall' , just like other reviewers mentioned , we almost walked right past it. Crepes are amazing here. The owner was super helpful giving us advice about other local restaurants and tips on other attractions to see. I had a strawberrry banana crepe with nutella and cinnamon... SO GOOD. My mouth is dripping just writing about it! But beware.. the crepes are soo big I couldn't finish it alone.

“Delicious homemade crepes and fruit juices”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 18, 2012

Don't walk too fast you'll miss it! Right by Taco Chido (also a fabulous place) on 10th Avenue corner 10th Street, this is a "mom-and-pop" dessert heaven. Try one of their freshly made-on-the-spot fruit juices. My favorite is mango-fresa-naranja. Mix it up with a ridiculously delicious crepe - try nutella/banana. The owner sometimes adds some personal touches, usually a smidgen of jam and a sprinkling of cinnamon. The prices are to die for and the atmosphere down-to-earth mexican "comida corrida"
Oh yeah, and on friday and saturday they are open until 6AM!!
