“Wonderful Gem”

Crepes De Luxe Cafe

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.

A little bit of Paris in Iowa City. Excellent crepe selection and prepared perfectly. Cute little place with great service too. If you’ve never had savory crepes please try one here!

Wonderfully healthy food that is delicious and beautifully presented. The owners and staff are very friendly and kind. It is an intimate simple setting. Two of us ordered three crepes, two savory and one sweet, and we were very full afterwards. The Herb Chicken crepe with chicken, aioli, lemon, spinach and pesto was very tasty, as was the L’Ocean crepe with salmon, aioli, swiss, spinach, and pesto. We shared the sweet Crepe du Chef with cinnamon, apples, blueberries and honey. Yum, very refreshing and a good ending.

What a gem in Iowa City. Visited with family and had Le Couchon (savory) and also La Belle(sweet). Both were incredibly tasty. Staff and owners were great! Everyone loved their crepes and had a wonderful outing!

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 to see be one at a time but the wait for the second crepe was too long. Another customer had to ask for her crepes to go because it was taking too long. Will consider going back and hopefully the wait will not be as long.

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.
