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!

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...More

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.

Three of us shared a savory and 2 sweet crepes. The L-Ocean with salmon, spinach, swiss cheese and pesto was my favorite, so light with complex flavors. The Valetin with strawberries and nutella hazelnut spread was the bomb...very tasty and still light. The third one...More

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.
