“ A real treat!”

Crepes De Luxe Cafe
Ranked #2 of 9 Dessert in Iowa City
Cuisines: French

Dining options: Breakfast
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.

If you like crepes, you have to stop here! The entree crepes as well as the dessert crepes are not only delicious but they make them to look like little presents! The staff treats you like you are family and makes you feel at home! I had the L'Ocean crepe (salmon, aioli, etc.) and it was amazing! Highly recommended!

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 was LaBelle with lemon, blueberries and sugar, nice. They are all beautifully designed and presented. The staff is very friendly, kind and funny. A completely satisfying lunch with friends. It is a small place with 5 booths and a few chairs. and cozy and full of life.

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 room for dessert. Seating is limited, but it's usually not too crowded. Definitely recommend!

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 and you can practice your French if you're so inclined.
