We have a weekend place in Rehoboth and have been coming to Cafe Papillon for many years. It is easily the best cafe and patisserie at the beach, and probably in the region. I've never had crepes or croissants as good in DC, where we live full time. If you visit Rehoboth Beach, ya gotta go here. Simply excellent!

The pastries and croissants are amazing! Long lines especially in the morning for delicious steaming hot coffee and a whole variety of pastries are well worth the wait.
The staff are amazing , smiling faces and friendly service...

Grab a coffee and wait in line, you won't regret it. Long lines come and go here in peak season, but the crepes are made to order and so delish! So nice to have the whole family get what they want, and eat outside under an umbrella on charming Penny Lane. Peaceful!
We kept coming back for the PERFECT croissants, squirreling some away for the trip home. These are so good, the locals order dozens for their freezers at the end of the season so they won't go into winter withdrawals. I'm doing the same this year!

Cafe Papillon is a daily destination on our annual trip to Rehoboth. The croissants are crunchy on the outside and buttery on the inside. They will definitely not help you look lean and fit on the beach but they are well worth the extra baubles and bits. The place in located in Penny Lane, which is a quiet and cute mew just a block off the boardwalk. Get there early because they usually run out of most varieties by 10 am. The sandwiches are pretty good too and the crepes, if you like them and are willing to wait in a considerable line to get one, are authentic.
