I meet friends at Rachel's for breakfast crepes about once a month. Very tasty crepes, with many choices. Very flexible folks will add/subtract ingredients as requested. Fast and friendly service. Very clean. We avoid it at lunchtime, as the noise level reaches the threshold of pain as the restaurant becomes full.

My girlfriend and I visited Lancaster on Labor Day weekend. This was our second time eating at Rachel's, we were there on Valentines Day weekend 2015. Since we were shopping downtown, we had planned to have lunch again at Rachel's. The unique items at this restaurant consist of sandwiches made with fresh crepes. We prefer to design our own crepes... More

I can't say enough about Rachel's. The staff is all very fun, polite and quick to help you with anything you need. The drink menu is terrific, highly recommend picking up one of the smoothies. My wife loves the nutella mocha. As for the crepes, they're incredible. All kinds of terrific options to choose from: Anything from burgers, pizza, philly... More

Our first visit (even though we live here) and everything was excellent! The breakfast burrito was delicious, and the Mediterranean omelet fresh and tasty. The extensive seating helps keep the wait short, but be aware this place gets busy. Do not be put off by the hipster waitresses covered in tattoos and piercings. They are very nice! TIP: They have...

Beautiful, charming place with very nice service, the nutella mocha was amazing and even a regular black coffee was delicious. I had a Spanish Omlet crepe and it was out of this world! Definitely great experience and I hope to come back in the future.

This place rocks! Enjoyed a fantastic dinner tonight of a kids ham and cheese, the Blackbird (get a side of salsa), and the special Pesto Crêpe. We shared 2 orders of hash browns as well. You won't leave hungry. Service was quick and all the servers worked together well. Thanks for a lovely dinner!

I went here once, and I never stopped coming! Even after we moved, we often drive back to Lancaster to eat here for lunch or brunch. There are many different types of crepes, such as plain, fruit, and salad type crepes. Even with the cheap price, I think that this food could be served at a place for kings and... More

Rachel's is by far my favorite place for a quick, delicious meal. The crepes are very filling. It's BYOB so you can have a meal with friends for under $10 a person. I have taken friends, dates, and my mom here and it's always a winner. Try the chai tea latte and fill up on a dinner crepe!

It's a place everyone I know enjoys, the crepes are good and large. I always think they're to big then I start eating and devour the whole thing. I don't go often any more though, gluten sensitive and there aren't really any options for me. I do still go with family and friends at times. Worth a visit for good... More

Rachel's is truly an excellent establishment. They have the best crepe creations and the staff is welcoming and friendly. The coffee is fresh, the smoothies are delicious and the food is some of the best in Lancaster. I love the Nutella and banana crepe with an iced coffee. I highly suggest Rachel's for breakfast or brunch!
