I ordered the frapillon cafe for myself which was great. My wife ordered a vanilla frappe and she liked it. Then we also had mimosas with a bacon pizza to share and we each got a steak sandwich, all the food was great and it...came out pretty quickly. We ended it with a Nutella pizza I think it’s called Belgium pizza on their menu not so sure but it is great, definitely worth the visit I wish they had something like this in Ohio, my hometown.More

We found Cafe Papillon online and decided to try it - EXCELLENT! You can order croissants via text and also purchase at the window. The croissants and crepes were so good that we went two days in a row and brought some home!

I preordered on their mobile number the day before to make sure I get the almond and butter croissants. What I got was almond croissants and cheese filled croissants. Delicious.

One of Rehobeth’s best kept secrets! A little off the beaten path, well worth the seasonal only visit. I have eaten here since 1975!!! Truly authentic and tres magnifique French pastries, sandwiches, smoothies, and crepes. All are freshly prepared. The croissants are flakey and as...delicious as they look, filled, butter, or as a sandwich. I had the tuna croissant, and a peach-pear smoothie, and a chocolate-almond croissant—all were equally scrumptious! The cafe is divided into two parts, one for pastries and sandwiches, the other for crepes. The crepes are fabulous and prepared to perfection. Everything is as good as it looks, if not better. Small seating area. Be sure to take some home. They now take credit cards. Hurry, they are only open for the summer season. A sweet addiction, indeed! Bon appetite!!!More

A French creperie is an enduring favourite in the heart of Rehoboth and has been around for more than five decades. Ownership may have changed but the quality and variety of crepes remains intact. Now there are tables and chairs to relax into. The sugar...and lemon a must for desert. A real part of the experience on the DelMaVa coast. Prices have changed: basic crepe used to be 75 cents now $5.00. Still worth the visit to home on Penny Lane.More

I have been getting crepes here since I was a young man. Even before they moved to this location. Always look forward to them. Really enjoy watching them make your delicious treat right in front of your eyes. Great place for a snack or light...lunch. They staff is always friendly and offer quick service. Worth the walk along Penny Lane.More

So glad we found this delightful french cafe down a pretty little alleyway. Beautiful crepes made to order and at a reasonable price. Good variety of savoury or sweet, but I recommend the strawberries and whipped cream for a perfect dessert! Friendly, attentive French staff....All of their pastries looked divine and the homemade Creme Brulee was also delicious. No visit to Rehoboth is complete without a visit, or two or three.More

I am trying to remember this place. If its the little restaurant in the court yard that has only crepes then I highly recommend stopping their. The food was very good and the service was good as well. It looks like a little mom and...pop shop and if you like crepes (all kinds) you will love this place and I guarantee you that you will go back more than once.More

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
