I really wanted to love this place but I found it to be just okay. My sister and I stopped in on a Sunday morning. It's a VERY tiny place but since it was early we had our pick of seats. We sat by the window. Sadly it appears that the staff did not clean up from the previous day.... More

I had heard great things about this place and finally got a chance to go. It definitely did not disappoint. The menu boasted many different savory and sweet crepes with excellent combinations. The place is tiny but size doesn't matter in food quality. I will definitely be back!

This is a fun little find in downtown Harrisburg. The setting is quaint, if nothing particularly remarkable. The crepes are delicious. I'd wished my savory crepe had a little sauce on top, but once I dug in I didn't really miss it. Beverage selections are a bit lacking. Still, I'd love to visit again!

We've been going here for a couple years now. Finally getting around to writing a review after tonight's experience. Showed up 15 minutes after they closed, the gentleman running shop invited us in anyway. We were celebrating my fiance's birthday and we just ordered dessert so we didn't keep him too late. Ordered #41 and #42, dark chocolate and bananas... More

Great crepes, quick service, and a large variety of crepes. I would definitely go back if in the area again! Place was not very large.

This place was supposed to open at 10:00a on the fourth of July and we waited an hour for them to open at 11:00a and it was worth it! The crepes are made in house. They have so many different varieties sweet and savory! It was so nice! The coffee was great, too. If you are in Harrisburg, this place... More

If you can't make it to Paris France, c'est la vie! Not to worry though. This little but quaint, welcoming place will satisfy your desires of any creperie. The prices, very reasonable. The food? Even all made fresh & better ingredients. Entreé crepes as well as scrumptious dessert ones. They have French press or other coffee styles to accompany them.... More

We were here for brunch. Place is small with limited spaces. This small place is very busy with only two staff around who does the seating, cooking, and cleaning. So don't expect too much of services. Help yourself out, get your own water, utensils and etc. small and friendly place. Food was good. Service is slow. Don't come here if... More

Hospitality and great crepes! We stopped in for our first time before a show at the Whitaker Center. We were pleasantly surprised. We can't wait to go back.

Very cute spot! The owner is extremely hospitable. Both my savory and sweet crepe were good. The savory filling was quite flavorful and the fruit on the sweet crepe was extremely fresh. But the actual crepes themselves were cooked just a tad dry. That said, the venue is quaint and cozy. The value for amount of food is excellent. It... More
