My three girls and I went to Helena's for the first time last night. The girls all loved their selections: Chicken Caesar salad, Nutella Crepe, and a Dulce de Leche Crepe. I had the A la Greque crepe and was disappointed. The description said spinach, feta, lemon and ?. The crepe itself was delicious, but the filling left something to be desired. I only tasted spinach and it needed something. There wasn't even salt on the table. The staff was nice, if not overly attentive. Still I would probably give it another try and stick to sweet crepes

I've been here many times and have had lunch crepes and dessert crepes. All of them have been excellent! We love coming here for lunch or just dessert. The other desserts are also really good too!

Crepe's were excellent, well prepared and so tasty. Didn't have a bad experience in four visits. Pastry's are excellent and the speciality coffee's were good as well. The place is a little run down, but if you crave a dessert or something to satisfy your sweet tooth this is the place to be. Friendly service, worth a visit if you are in the area.

Carlisle PA has a few good restaurants & artsy stores & even an indie theater within a few blocks. Helena's a great place for breakfast, brunch or coffee next to the Carlisle theater. It has homemade macaroons and other wonderful sweet treats. Also serves crepes. My friend had cheese, sausage white crepe which was delicious! I had buckwheat and spinach with dill crepe & it fell apart and was rather tasteless. (Suggest they add cheese to the spinach & I'll skip the buckwheat next time). Casual atmosphere. Compares favorably to the ubiquitous diner-type breakfast/lunch elsewhere.

Great place to stop for deserts. The cookies are eclectic and fun to try. The cakes are always original. Servers are sweet and helpful.
