I loved their desert crepes and I finally have a chance to go back and take my wife for our anniversary. The setting is not cramped but close and the service was great.

Crepes de Luxe is one of those places you just keep going to, planning to try something new and you don't, because you can't resist ordering one of your favorite crepes. The food is consistently great, and the owners/workers are always friendly and welcoming. I...More

Fantastic crepes made before your eyes in traditional Parisian style. The owner is French and puts in the extra touches to make the dishes excellent. Savory or sweet, they are all awesome.

This little restaurant serves the best crepes ever. Wish I'd had room to try one of their sweet offerings ... but one spinach crepe filled me up. If I didn't live 350 miles away, I'd be back every week! Oh, and two young men who...More

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.
