The crepes were great. We went for breakfast and were first in line. Three of us ordered two crepes. Others came in after us. It took at least 10 minutes to get out first crepes. Our second crepe took over 30 minutes. It makes sense...More

At this darling cafe, "sweet" and "savory" top the two columns of the menu chalkboard. Soooo many delicious crepe choices, reasonably priced. You'll love this cafe.

Found this little place this morning, friendly service and excellent food. We enjoyed both the savory and the sweet selections. I would recommend this restaurant for breakfast and lunch both.

Three of us shared a savory and 2 sweet crepes. The L-Ocean with salmon, spinach, swiss cheese and pesto was my favorite, so light with complex flavors. The Valetin with strawberries and nutella hazelnut spread was the bomb...very tasty and still light. The third one...More

Excellent, authentic crepes made by native French speakers. The quality is amazing and a great value for your dollar, especially if you're a college student. There's a wide variety of savory and sweet crepes, but honestly if you order one savory, you probably won't have...More

The food is good, but the seating options are very uncomfortable and limited. The food is expensive and I'm always still hungry. It's good if you just want something light and different, are willing to pay.

Excellent crepes in a small, cozy setting. A great choice for lunch if you're looking for somewhere that will leave you pleasantly full, but not over stuffed. They only have tables for four, so larger groups need to split up. The owner/chef is very personable...More

Description
Craving a taste of Paris in Iowa? Go to Crepes De Luxe Cafe for sweet or savory crepes like the popular "Monkey Treat" with bananas and Nutella, or the L'Ocean, Salmon, Aioli, Lemon Juice, and Swiss Cheese. Chef Hicham has created a little taste of Paris in Iowa City and it is delicious. We have eaten here many times and never been disappointed. Within walking distance of the downtown hotels and popular pedestrian mall, it is a great restaurant for two or a small group. There is limited seating but any wait is worth it. If you are looking for an alternative to the "greasy spoon" breakfast or fast food dinner, try Crepes De Luxe Cafe. You will walk away thinking you just left a bistro near the Eiffel Tower.
