“Quick and tasty”
Reviewed December 13, 2012

As the name suggests, the signatures of this small French-themed bistro on a corner in Sanlitun are crêpes and paninis. The setting is intimate, the staff friendly and the food delicious. Recommended for lunch or a delectable snack.

“Lunch or Dessert is Quick and Tasty”
Reviewed November 13, 2012

Crepes and Panini served with salmon, meats, cheeses, and veges in a small white cafe that has additional outdoor seating if the weather allows. Situated in Sanlitun it is a favorite dessert place among locals.

The desserts range from Gnutella crepes to large waffles with chocolate and banana toppings with whip cream. Eat a light dinner. The menu includes breakfast and lunch items and you could stop here for a light dinner.

The staff does speak English and the menus are in English. The staff is friendly.

“Yummy, yummy, yummy!”
Reviewed September 26, 2012

Crepanini is a small, outdoor cafe in the modern Chaoyang district of Beijing near the Opposite House Hotel. The menu features sweet and savory crepes, paninis, waffles, and coffees. We ate a quick lunch here of paninis and sweet crepes. I loved the Riviera panini (tomato, basil, mozzarella), and the group's consensus was that the banana and nutella crepe was divine. It's a bit out of the way from the tourist sites in Dongcheng district, but you'll find that many of the best restaurants are in Chaoyang, as well as tons of shops, so it's well worth a visit out there, and get a crepe while you're at it!

“Nice place for a quick lunch”
Reviewed August 14, 2012

A lot of choices and it's cheap, if you're French or a student I believe you get a discount, but either way, not pricey and very yummy.
