Stopped by for breakfast - good food, great ambiance and very friendly staff... seems like they had a great selection of beer as well but maybe 8AM was too early to start :P

When in Arequipa i n June 2015, we wanted a different meal that would not be too big and yet satisfy our appetite. We found Crepisimo near our hotel and just couldn't resist its appeal. The dining area was not very large on the ground floor (there was an upstairs, too), and service was exquisite and very friendly. After ordering... More

This lovely place is located in the same courtyard as the Alliance Francaise. The service is fast and efficient and the crepes are delicious. Try the buckwheat brown flour variety. They are delicious and very filling. Just across the street from the Santa Catalina Convent

A friend and I really like this place. I must say I don't really rate crepes. You might say they're crap. These however were anything but. Scuse the pun. These had all sorts of flavours to tickle every taste bud and the use of quinoa based pancake mix worked really well. All in all I'd say probably the best crepes... More

Really enjoyed our lunch here. The menu has an extensive amount of crepes, but lots of other options too. I had the waffles with chocolate sauce which was delicious and only 10 soles. The service was lightening fast compared to the rest of South America. We were sorry to be leaving the next day so we couldn't come back!

This nook is a nice find. Upstairs there is casual-style seating. They menu, while not expansive, has a nice variety of crepes and sandwiches. I like their sandwiches and their crepes, while not large, never disappoint in flavor. It's a nice place to grab lunch or a drink with a friend and usually has space when other tourist joints are...

We had a great brunch in this highly rated cafe. They have a great range of crepes from savoury one with alpaca steak and sauce, to sweet ones with banana, chocolate, ect. We stayed in the lounging area up the stairs which is a great place to just chill out, however the unfortunate thing is it is you have to... More

Wherever we travel we always like to find somewhere who will make us a banana and chocolate crepe. Some of the best ones we have eaten have been in India. We asked for one here and it was very good. They have an enormous selection of crepes, in fact a whole menus worth of them. We sat outside in a... More
