A word from Crepe Du Jour French Bistro
The Crêpe Du Jour was established in 1997 by husband and wife team Mustapha and Donna Snoussi. They had just relocated to Baltimore after living in Paris, France and began their first business by opening an upscale kiosk in the outside atrium of The Village of Cross Keys where they sold crêpes, panini, salads and more. The business was a success and they had acquired the clientele needed which would later support them in the opening of their Mt. Washington restaurant in 2000. The restaurant has expanded with the opening of an all year round heated terrace. Crêpe Du Jour has been part of the "Zagat" restaurant guide since 2003 where they describe dining on the terrace on a long summer evening as "almost feeling like Paris". The owner is often present to greet the guests and assure the quality of the food is at its best.

    Vibrant part of town. Six of us (my recommendation from web link) came Saturday nite. Colorful curb appeal. Looked small,never felt crowded. Energetic surroundings, though might be noisier for quiet couple or group. Instant greeting by our waiter, though we were early. He offered suggestions, we had three different appetizers - all good. Red (Malbec) and White (Pinot Grigio) wines both very good (as was the Limoncello, large serving). Even though I reviewed the menu prior to coming, we all had such a time deciding on entrees. We had crepe (seafood special crepes) and non-crepe dishes. All very good. We also decided to go for crepe desserts. Again, wonderful. Waiter had good timing throughout the meal. We laughed a lot. We will be back!

    This was not our first time at Crepe du Jour, and as in every visit in the past, it was a joy. The crepes were just terrific—I wish I'd actually ordered the special for brunch rather than off the menu, but I was not at all disappointed. I have no idea what the rest of the menu is like, having never ordered off it, but the group at the table next to us raved over their specialty sandwiches, which they said they order every time they go there. The ambiance for a Saturday brunch was nice, casual and not at all crowded. The waiter, Sirous (sp?), was very attentive and generous in making small changes in orders at peoples' request. All in all, a very nice choice for brunch.

    The place is very nice - small but not too much, has a lot of great crepes and also offers some 'moules avec frites' which is nice, has good wines and desserts too. Service is normal, not super but no problems of any sort. We will be back!

    As newcomers to Baltimore, we had resisted dining in Mt Washington due to parking concerns. A September weekend evening was actually pretty quiet. Crepes and seafood were delicious, pork chop - not so much, but I should have stayed with their specialty. Wine by the glass to pair with dishes worked out well. Atmosphere unusual...in a good way.

    good enough to travel to someone else's neighborhood. Started with spinach and goat cheese in puff pastry dressed with balsamic vinegar and creme fraiche , A+. Next was the Greek salad, a variation with mixed greens along with all the usuals, dressing was unique and delicious. Followed by mixed seafood over pasta in a creamy sauce with shallots and mushrooms and greens. Fantastic! Salmon with prosciutto and brie served with polenta and asparagus, incredible. Ended up with great coffee and profiteroles with homemade chocolate sauce. Portions are huge and the tab, including a bottle of wine, was quite reasonable. Cozy place with shabby chic decor. Major winner!

    We hadn't brunched in a while and wanted to try someplace different, so picked Crepe du Jour from the list of top brunch places in Open Table. We weren't disappointed. Good food, well prepared and served attentively. One tip - side salads are big enough for two!

    I was at Crepe Du Jour several times and every time love their food. This is a small restaurant and has absolutely delicious food. I tried different salads, entries, and deserts. Every time I am not disappointed, the sauces that compliment entries are so good, that I can eat just side dish with sauce and skip meat or fish. Every time I am there I can't decide what to have because this is probably one restaurant in Baltimore that has everything delicious on their menu. Great, family owned place. It can get noisy when they have big party but the food is worth to tolerate the noise.

    We were so surprised to to find this wonderful little gem in Mt. Washington. We frequent other restaurants in the area but never tried this one. Loved it! Ina was an excellent waitress and the food outstanding. Must try a crepe even if you share one as an appetizer.

    Our family of four had lunch on a Saturday. Three of us had brunch crepes and one had eggs with peppers, onions, and sausage. Mine had brie, artichokes, and mushrooms. It was excellent. My daughter had a crepe with smoked salmon which she enjoyed tremendously. The service was excellent and the food was wonderful. We have been to several crepe restaurants and they have the best. I highly recommended this gem of a restaurant.

    On Mondays a guitarist enhances the atmosphere. The menu is surprisingly large and the mussels and crepes we ordered were outstanding. The wines by the glass are terrific. Next time we'll explore the menu more thoroughly. Parking is free, on the street. Prices are reasonable. We had a very enjoyable evening.

    My two girlfriends and I went here for dinner the other night, and we had a great time together. The food was excellent, as was the service and our waiter let us talk and visit with each other for as long as we wanted to. I was surprised that there weren't more people having dinner there--although the outside tables were all full, the restaurant itself was pretty empty. This place is such a gem!

    We dine out frequently and can not believe Crepe Du Jour remained over-looked far too long. Smoked salmon appetizer was enough for two, very tasty and beautifully presented. The menu offers a significant number of choices, but we both decided upon one of the entree specials, a huge crepe filled with lump crab, shrimp, asparagus, diced fresh tomato, and mild feta blend in a delicately spiced light cream sauce. Incredibly flavorful and highly recommended. To end the meal we shared a Bananas Foster like crepe.....light; not heavy, a perfect conclusion to our first, but not last visit to Crepe Du Jour. Must mention, our server was helpful and available, but never intrusive.

    My husband, two boys and I recently dined at Crepe Du Jour for Mother's Day brunch. The food was wonderful, but the service was beyond terrible. The restaurant was not overly crowded, so we were perplexed as to why we had a poor experience. We were rudely greeted upon arrival, and then waited 10 minutes at our table until we had to request a waiter from the hostess, who was again rude. My husband's order was incorrect, but was delicious. NONE of the staff checked on us during our meal. The food was fabulous, so kudos to the chefs. I hope that the inattentiveness of the wait staff doesn't deter folks from enjoying the talents of the kitchen staff.

    I was surprised that there seats available on the Saturday before Easter Sunday. The seafood crepe was wonderful--very rich. Eggs Chesapeke were a hit as well. Everyone seemed very happy with their food. The Bloody Mary's were excellent as well. We shared a berry & nutella dessert that was very tasty and not overwhelming. I like the Bistro feel of the place but it may be too close for some. No private conversations here!

    Extremely large menu, well-prepared items, from eggs, quiche and omelettes to savory and sweet crepes, plus, if a little later, salads, sandwiches and other entrees, this place makes good food. Not cheap, but certainly more reasonable than some other spots. Services starts a little slow, but then picks up. Extremely pleasant waiters. if you've not been, especially if you like crepes, give it a try!

    There were 2 other tables there when we arrived for our 12 pm reservation & 1 waiter. It took an inordinate amount of time for him to get our drink orders, & twice that long to bring the drinks, which he didn't get right! He seemed entirely overwhelmed by 3 tables. The food was outstanding, but the poor service overshadowed the delicious food, which is a shame. Some Yelp reviews note a management issue, which I concur with.

    Overall the food was very good at Crepe Du Jur. It was plated well and served in a timely manner. I think this place may have a management problem. We went on Valentines day expecting the normal menu(reasonable prices) and discovered that only a prefixed Valentines Day menu was available. (55 dollars a head). I was frustrated that there was no mention of this before-hand. Online, on the phone, or when we walked in. Another weird thing was that when we arrived our table wasn't ready so my date and I went across the street for a drink. I traded my number with the host to let me know when our table was ready. That worked well....Unfortunately he started texting me later during my meal!
