I've eaten at Beau Monde twice
I've eaten at Beau Monde twice in the past two years and both times the food was Amazing! The service was also consistently good even though the first time it was really busy (around noon on a Sunday) and the second time I went there it was almost empty (it was around 3pm on a weekday). It's a really cute place and sitting outside on a sunny day makes the experience just perfect. They are great at splitting dishes and the portions are just right. Definitely one of the nicest places for brunch in Philadelphia!

The mushroom, Swiss and roasted
The mushroom, Swiss and roasted almond crêpe was amazing! My friend loved her tomato, spinach, olive and feta one as well. We split a banana, coconut crepe for dessert. Everything was delicious, the restaurant was beautiful, and the service was great. Our waitress helped us pick out the sweet crêpe (there were too many wonderful sounding options on the menu for us to decide). The tables are larger than most in center city and there is more space and room to breathe. I've recommended Beau Monde to basically everyone I've seen since dining there. Crêpes are for so much more than brunch! I will definitely be back soon.

Good crepes - great selections!
The selection is amazing...if only a little on the bland side!

Our date night go to!
We love it here. Lovely service, cool and ecclectic servers. The crowd is never uptight. We like to sit outside and people watch Nice club upstairs for over 30 people who still want to have fun and not stand out ! If you can;t make the trip to Paris for the weekend-try it!

Food was terrific as all of
Food was terrific as all of us love crepes. Service was excellent with a really terrific waitress. However, bacause of two very large tables the kitchen was slow with our entres. The design and staff were excellent. The noise level was abusive. Nonetheless, we will return to try more of the wonderful food.

Delicious. The meal was outstanding from the kids sweet crepes, to our savory ones. Enjoyed it thoroughly.

Not your average crepes
Our party of four had a wonderful dinner on the sidewalk of South Philly. Beau Monde has a decent wine list and a very inventive menu that satisfied both the carnivores and vegetarians in our group. My wife and I shared a roasted beet salad that was one of the best I've had. I'll make it a point to visit again next time I'm in Philly.

Had their $14.99 2-course
Had their $14.99 2-course lunch special which included choice of French onion soup or house salad and one of 5 crepes. Selected the French onion soup and the buckwheat crepe filled with andouille sausage, ratatouille and caramelized tomato sauce. The soup and the crepe arrived hot and were very delicious. Service with a smile was provided by Erin.

Enjoyed a nice 2-course lunch
Enjoyed a nice 2-course lunch for $14.99. First course was a selection of French onion soup or the house salad. Second course was a selection of a filled crepe from among five. Chose the French onion soup and the crepe filled with the andouille sausage, ratatouille and caramelized tomato sauce. Both dishes were nicely prepared, arrived hot and were delicious. Service with a smile was provided by Erin.

Love Beau Monde! Has been and still is one of my all time favorites.

Crepes pushed to an Art Form!
Oh my gosh, my mouth is watering just thinking about it to write this review! This is by far our favrotie restaurant in Philly. We originally found it online 5 years ago and we've been back three times. I wish we were in Philly more often - love the town, but really, really love these crepes!
5/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Worthy of return visits!
The food is delicious and service superb. This was not my first visit nor will it be my last. I brought my daughter and it was the first time she had visited Beau Monde. She was enchanted and said the crepes were better than the ones we had when we visited Paris two years ago. We now have a new favorite restaurant and will return soon.

Queen Village Creperie
House recommended or build your own crepes were light and tasty. The decor is charming, the service efficient. Will have to go back once the weather changes for good. Outdoor seating is available.
Save room for the sweet crepes. Well worth it.

Our favorite for years
We have been going to Beau Monde for many years, and we enjoy it every time--it never disappoints! We have eaten outside in the summer, and inside in the warm ambience in the colder weather. The crepes are creatively and deliciously combined, whether you create your own or use one of their suggestions. The salade maison is fresh and dressed just right with a delicious vinagrette. The noise level can get high, but sitting near the window helps. The service is always good, and we have become "regulars," so some of the servers know us.
5/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Had yet another wonderful dining experience and I introduced a friend to a new restaurant. She and her husband plan to go. I will return often.

The food was good, but it's a little expensive. The fruit crepes were a bit soggy.

Nice European atmosphere. The special was very good and the crepes were outstanding. Service also was very good, knowledgeable, accommodating, and not at all rushed. The wine list had good choices that were very affordable. The four of us had an overall great experience.

Always delicious, no matter what you choose. Their menu includes something for everyone, and their suggested crepe's are always winners.
7/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
We went as a group and all raved about our food. Everyone had different crepes and they were all excellently prepared and delicious. I would highly recommend this place. Beautiful restaurant, in keeping with the French theme. Everything was clean, neat, and the staff were professional. My only complaint is the noise level seemed very loud and the restaurant was not full. I think it must be the wood ceiling acoustics or something. So, don't expect to talk to anyone not right next to you.

Great romantic spot for crepes
Stopped by here to end to the night on a sweet note. I ordered a crepe with roasted pear, hazelnut cream, chocolate sauce, and topped with espresso ice cream to split with the wife. I was surprised when the crepe came out because it was cut in half and plated beautifully as two individual desserts. It was the perfect portion for each of us to end the night!

Scrumptious but LOUD
This restaurant is outstanding in every way. The beet critus salad was one of the best salads I have ever eaten. The crepes never disappoint. Sadly the room is built and arranged in such a way that conversation is near impossible it's so loud. That was the only real disappointing aspect of the evening.
7/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Lovely atmosphere. Great crepes (we tried two savory and one sweet). Service was a little slow, but pleasant. Would definitely go back! Also, check out the quirky antique store around the corner!

A Great Find!
We really enjoyed luch @ Beau Monde! Would highly recommend it to anyone looking for something different! The food was great!

If you are a crepe fan, this is your place. Simply excellent.

For those who love crepes...
The best crepes in Philly. A variety of savory and dessert crepes. My favorites savory ones are Andouille Sausage with Ratatouille and 2. Beef Bourguignon. Casual and relaxed atmosphere.

ONE OF PHILADELPHIA'S TREASURES!
Every visit to Beau Monde is a great success! The atmosphere, cocktails and food are just perfect!
So different and distinguishable from any other Philadelphia restaurant! Great for family or friend lazy lunches or brunches!
8/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
I will return and refer often.
One of the best things in Philadelphia is a buckwheat crepe from Beau Monde. It's been a favorite of mine, especially for wowing friends and family from out of town who have a whole range of eating preferences and limitations. There's literally something for everyone here! A true measure of success with my network has been the special requests to come back here when people come back to visit me here. We had a wonderful evening dining outside. Amazing service and delicious crepes! I will return and refer often.

Beautiful Beau Monde
I've been visiting here for years; sometimes for a leisurely dinner outside in the summer or just some dessert crepes inside by the fire in the winter. Love it here!

Really great food. The tomato basil soup was really amazing. Great meal. Lovely venue. Street parking was easy.

This place is amazing. The crepes are so delicious and they have a ton of varieties. Very authentic. Can get a little pricey though. Totally worth it however.

Birthday Brunch Celebration
Booked our reservation through open table and indicated one of the guests food allergies. Restaurant was prepared for our group of 7 and had the allergy information. Food was fantastic! Bloody Mary's were great - not too spicy, just a little "kick"! Everyone had a great time and have already recommended the restaurant to friends.
9/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
One of my favorites
Such a lovely established resturaunt in Philadelphia. Outdoor tables in the spring and fall are ideal.The inside exudes charm and character. I've been for dinner and brunch and have equally been satisfied with both. There is a bar upstairs called l'etage that is also worth a visit.
9/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
With the wonderful crepes,
With the wonderful crepes, great wines, most interesting wait staff in Philly this is great place for lunch, dinner or even just dessert ( especially dessert!) . Brunch is a great scene and the best bloody Mary's in the city.
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
I went to Beau Monde with 6 of my friends to celebrate my birthday. The dining room had a lovely candlelit glow, and we were greeted and seated immediately. Our waiter was very helpful and friendly. The best part? The crepes, of course. Both savory and sweet crepes were fantastic, and very filling without being too much. All of my friends and I agreed that we will be back soon! Thank you!

Overall a lovely dining experience.
Overall a lovely dining experience. They brought one of us the wrong entree, but as it was good (although more expensive) it wasn't a big deal. Nice that they allow kids & bring them crayons! Being nice to my kids is always a plus in my book! In general the food was better than last time I was here (admittedly 2+ years ago) - more interesting combinations in terms of salads, and the quality of the ingredients in the crepe fillings seemed better - the shrimp "seafood sauce" seemed a bit more like a true sauce and less like an uninspired prepackaged paste that they add water to (which is kind of what it seemed like before).
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
still the best on this block
Beau Monde was the best when the only thing across the street was a giant dalmatian and boarded up windows. Now that there are trendy places surrounding it, its still the best restaurant south of society hill.
10/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
Love this place!
One of my favorite places in the city! Great food, great atmosphere... perfect for a night out!

Beau Monde is always good. There is something for everyone.

Perfect early brunch
This place is strongest for its crepes, both savory and sweet. It opens earlier than most places if you need an early brunch and at 10:00 AM was active with about half a dozen tables filled and energetic. The crepes were wonderful. We were 2 people, took one crepe each, one savory and one sweet. The waitress offered of her own initiative to split both and to bring us the savory first and the sweet second, so that we would enjoy both warm, and we didn't have to fuss with cutting and splitting. The combinations for the crepes are imaginative, the ingredients fresh, and the whole experience a delight. You can also create your own crepe. I am definitely planning to go back! Of note, since they are so popular, by 11 AM it was very noisy.
11/2/2013 5:00:00 PM
great as usual
The only reasons for less than perfect scores was that the noise level was a bit uncomfortable - hard time having a proper conversation at the table.
Food and service were great.
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
I was expecting a wonderful experience and it was nothing less. I actually feel as though my expectations were exceeded. I can't wait to go back again.
