A word from Island Creperie
From France to Florida … Enjoy authentic French bistro cuisine like Beef Bourguignon and Porc in a black pepper and cognac sauce directly from Grandma's recipe book. Small and cozy modern place, ideal for sharing a delightful evening with friends or an intimate and romantic dinner.

A large wine and champagne list or a nice traditional French dessert as “creme brulee” or multiple sweet crepes will finish this authentic French experience.

You can also enjoy no more than 80 different crepes sweet or savory, sandwiches in freshly baked baguette, quiches and traditional French salads everyday at breakfast and lunch time without reservation.


Bon Appetit !!!

    Good selection of French entrees. Food was prepared just right and tasted great. Excellent service. Not very busy when we visited on a Friday night.

    I had been here once in the past for lunch - great crepes and sandwiches - so was looking forward to returning for dinner. The minute we walked in, I knew it was a mistake - the place smelled FUNKY. I mean like an old sock, not like yummy French food. The waitress was very pleasant and attentive, but everything seemed a bit dirty - even the wine glasses were filmy. The baguette was fresh, but the butter tasted like some fake greasy spread. The beef bourguinon was tasty enough, but not the heavily flour-laden sauce. The sides were scalloped potatoes - again too greasy - and a flan/quiche that would have worked on its own, but not as a vegetable side dish. In sum, a heavy, unbalanced, grade B- to C+ meal.

    This restaurant never fails to deliver a fine meal. I only hesitate to expose it to the world. I make the most of it "off season'"

    Visiting our home on Longboat off-season and decided to give the Creperie a try. Went on a quiet July Saturday evening and were promptly greeted and seated. Both of us had the chicken dish served in a crock which was very tasty. I started with mussels equally good. Had profiterole crepe dessert which was announced as very large and indeed it was! Large and mighty good. Service was friendly and professional. Look forward to our return visit.

    We have come to your restaurant for 10 years. We brought some friends with us who just bought a condo and they loved your place and thought the food was delicious. So I know they will be back!!
