We've been coming here since it's soft opening years ago. I love the atmosphere of the place. It is small, but that's the point of the French Creperie. The fries are amazing! They have a kids menu. The croque madame is enormous. Individual French press coffee. The savory crepes are portioned (and priced) just right so that you always have... More

My family visited here twice for brunch and we loved it both times. Everything has been delicious, but we particularly enjoyed the Normande crepe and Pain Perdu (french toast on the brunch menu) while the beer tallow French fries are to die for. Other dishes we've tried that were also good but not at the "rave" level were: Coq Au... More

We have decided to start an international restaurant tour this spring and start with the world's favorite food - French cusine. Creperie Saint-Germain in Evanston was wonderful, worldly and well within anyone's budget. Both savory and sweet crepes were outstanding. Service was attentive and personal - the couple next to us forgot their unfinished wine and Rachel, Manger, tracked them... More

We found this place by chance and had dinner there while visiting NWU. It is a cozy place with unique European decoration. The crepes were so good that we waned to come back the next day. Unfortunately it was a Sunday and we were told that they'd be closed on Monday. So we ordered dessert crepes and stuffed ourselves to... More

Very good food though they are not very religiously sticking to the breton traditional tastes. Eggs were certainly too hard, and are typically served inside the crepe rather than on top of it. Having said that, a nice and cozy place. A bottle of cider for >$6 is a little exaggeration though

It was a delicious French experience – starting with strong cappuccino and ending with tasty dessert crepes. Add a bit of French songs and you forget that you’re in the middle of Evanston. The menu selection is pretty big and offers a nice choice even for non-crepe lovers. Since we were there earlier in the morning, we went for more... More

Not sure why this great little restaurant is primarily listed as dessert venue, as they have a terrific menu as well. Both their French Onion and Tomato soups were excellent, as was the Champignon Omelette. Just superb!

We wanted to relive some French memories and a friend suggested this place. It was magical. The decor was perfect. The quiche of the day was the best quiche I've ever had. The simple salad greens that came with it were perfectly dressed as the French know how to do. This is a winner!

I really enjoyed the dessert crepe. It was so good. The portions are huge, so we shared one. It was plenty. The dinner was less great, but I don't really know French food that well. Very nice waiter who was very accommodating.
