Nice quiet side street atmosphere, good crepes. Reminded us of small Paris crepe/coffee shops we have enjoyed on the old continent. Cash only, though!

I remember my first crepe during my summer vacation. It has always been on my list of places I have to visit when I return to Rehoboth Beach. Lemon and sugar are still my favorite. Delish!

Cute little bakery/creperie on "Penny Lane" Off of Rehoboth Ave. A wide variety of crepes to choose from. Cute spot to eat them. Garden-like atmosphere. Try the ham and cheese crepe!!

We never fail to stop at Cafe Papillon for their croissants. They are delicious and perfectly made. Just can't make up my mind what kind to buy.

Have been coming here almost annually for the past 30 years. Old-world food, prepared in front of you, in as much time as it takes, no more, no less. There's nothing like them this side of la mer!

This is a small shop, and no reservations are necessary. You can eat at one of the small tables or take it to the beach and enjoy a great view. They do have great breakfast crepes, and of course out of this world dessert... More
