My wife and I enjoyed What Crepe for lunch on a Saturday. We found the restaurant on Trip Adivisor, and we were not disappointed! I enjoyed "The Mexican" with an wonderful orange jalapeño sauce. My wife ordered "The Washington" and added mushrooms. It was exquisite! The service was exceptional. Our food was served quickly, and the staff was amazingly attentive.... More

We had a delicious late lunch here. We parallel parked right in front of the restaurant and we were seated immediately upon entering. The restaurant is very clean and nicely decorated. In addition to a wide variety of crepe creations, the menu also offers soups and salads. My husband chose the Mexican crepe and said it was tasty. I had... More

We had bought a groupon for my son who wasn't able to use it before it expired so we did. Found this small, quaint restaurant decorated with French art, playing quiet music in the background. There were perhaps 10 tables at most and cozy. I ordered the hot chocolate to drink which was very good with whipped cream and drizzled... More

Went to "The Crepe" with high hopes and was let down fast. I ordered the most popular breakfast crepe and after the first bite I wanted to leave, BLAH. But I didn't and then tasted my wife's sweet cream cheese based strawberry crepe. A little better, but still not great. The crepe themselves were a little thick, but tasted fine.... More

My daughter ordered the sweet crepe berry something. She also order a hot chocolate. And she loved everything. The... More

This may be under new management, because the name has changed. I found many children there, having fun with crayons on drawing paper. The crepes were a bit heavier than I prefer, being huge with flavorful fillings. I had the signature rib eye truffle crepe. It had superb flavor. Though it had a pool of oil atop the plate, I...

My husband and I shared a dessert crepe. the banana exotique, as a carry-out. We both loved it, I was surprised he liked it since he's not as much of a crepe fan. I haven't dined there but carry-out was fast. I used to go to Good Girls and Josephine Crepes (both places have closed) and What Crepe's dessert crepe... More

I had never had a crepe before and found a Groupon for this place and chose to give it a go for breakfast. This place was EXTREMELY tiny (maybe a 30 person capacity) which I could not appreciate due to the very close spacing (not easy to move around or have much privacy) and it was had to maintain a...

We popped in today for brunch. We had a Groupon so we thought we'd give it a whirl. Apparently they just re-opened from a renovation. Everything I read said that it's bigger now. It must have been really small before because its not that big now! My husband and I each ordered a savory crepe while my son had 2... More
