I remember my first crepe during my summer vacation. It has always been on my list of places I have to visit when I return to Rehoboth Beach. Lemon and sugar are still my favorite. Delish!

Cute little bakery/creperie on "Penny Lane" Off of Rehoboth Ave. A wide variety of crepes to choose from. Cute spot to eat them. Garden-like atmosphere. Try the ham and cheese crepe!!

We never fail to stop at Cafe Papillon for their croissants. They are delicious and perfectly made. Just can't make up my mind what kind to buy.

Have been coming here almost annually for the past 30 years. Old-world food, prepared in front of you, in as much time as it takes, no more, no less. There's nothing like them this side of la mer!

After a walk on the broad walk, it was time for light breakfast so the crepe was the place! This place stays busy as the food is quick even though it's prepared when ordered, There are so many choices, from fruit selections of berries to nutella to ham or smoked salmon and variations with whipped cream! There are also, next... More

I have been going to Café Papillon for DECADES now. It has been one of my go-to places when I want a tasty dessert after having had dinner downtown. It used to be the ONLY place that made crepes. Now there are a handful of places around town offering the same type of product. I tried one of the competitors... More

I'm ashamed to admit that for the entire week we were there, a daily trip for coffee and croissant was made. Well, not too ashamed because they were delicious. Our group was several families in the house for the week and someone from the house was there every day to pick up and try each of the flavors. None disappointed... More

The quaint outdoor atmosphere was like being in Europe. The crepes were cooked to order but they weren't very filling and it was pricy. My daughter ordered a crepe with nutella and bananas with whipped cream. It could have been a lot better fkr $8. ordered a chocolate banana crepe and there wasn'r much to it for $7. Not much...
