A word from So Crepe
The idea behind So Crêpe is simple: demonstrate that affordable food served fast doesn’t have to be a "fast-food" experience, even with the French touch! Our goal is to use simple yet high-quality raw ingredients, classic cooking methods, a distinctive interior design and have friendly people to take care of customers—features that are more frequently found in the world of fine dining. Quality ingredients are the key words for a true eating experience. Lyon, our home town is the world capital of gastronomy. We’ve been raised at a time (no, we’re not old!) where we take the time to eat and cook basic, natural, healthy ingredients. Therefore, we truly believe that good food starts with higher quality basic raw ingredients. Our cooking techniques along with traditional recipes can transform the most basic ingredients (eggs, flour, milk …) into a real new eating experience accessible at reasonable prices.

    The crepes are good, but the service was subpar. Our waitress did not once come over to check on us and also forgot our orange juice.

    As the title says...this is a great spot to get your favorite French snack food. A friend and I went here for brunch and ordered one savory crêpe each plus a sweet one to split. I ordered the So Coquette, which was chicken in cream sauce with dijon mustard; it was absolutely delicious and had a satisfying but not overwhelming portion size. She ordered the So Smoked, which was salmon, avocado, and sour cream; and while I'm personally not wild about that combination, she loved it. And of course the dessert crêpe was delicious (it was Key Lime, how can you go wrong?) and surprisingly light as well.

    Both the savory and sweet crepes are of excellent quality and very representative of crêpe I've enjoyed in vieux Lyon! The chef is creative with the menu and open to any and all modifications. The food is So good!

    Dined on 7/25/2014
    My wife and I had a long night ahead and didn't want to eat something that would leave us feeling bloated and too full to move. We ended up taking a chance on this place based on its rating by prior diners, and based on my desire to reconnect with a childhood memory related to lemon crepes. We sat outside in front, had excellent food, and enjoyed the service and conversation with the team working this evening. We enjoyed each having a crepe for dinner and followed it up with 3 crepes for dessert. There isn't a bad note at all, it was perfect. To top it all off, its a BYOB! We will definitely be back, its always a great pleasure to eat somewhere that just exceeds your expectations.

  • Fabulous Crepes
    AFanVIP
    Dined on 7/13/2014
    I have had crepes in France, Canada and many places throughout the states and this ranks up there with the best. The menu is somewhat limiting so I would suggest checking on line first to make sure that there is something you like if you have limited food tastes or diet restrictions. We all ordered different crepes (party of 5) some savory and some sweet and we all thoroughly enjoyed our meals. Quick and courteous service - looking forward to going back.

  • Great food / Rude waitress
    OpenTable Diner Since 2005VIP
    Dined on 4/27/2014
    We went for Sunday brunch. It was spacious and great if you have strollers. We were a party of 4 adults, 2 toddlers and a baby. The waitress could not be more rude. It was clear to us that she had no tolerance for children. It definitely took away from our overall experience. The cook was wonderful and stopped by to see how our food was. Overall, we all enjoyed our food (including the kids). We will likely be back simply because the food was good. I hope that we do not have that waitress again though!

    Had a very nice lunch date with spouse. Menu was extensive enough. Wondered if we should have had more than one crepe because it was inexpensive, but we were pleasantly surprised by the amount of food for the cost. Would recommend to anyone. Did not have room for dessert crepe. Will visit again. Made a special trip from Clarksboro, NJ just because of the ratings and Open Table.

  • The savory Crepes we ordered
    OpenTable Diner Since 2012VIP
    Dined on 4/12/2014
    The savory Crepes we ordered were delicious, as were the dessert Crepes. But for us at least, the meal (this was dinner) would have been enhanced by some other flavor, a counterpoint, perhaps, to the rich cream in the savory crepe (this was mushroom and ham in a bechamel). A small green salad, for example.

    We decided to try So Crepe before an early evening theater performance. The two savory crepes (a special mushroom one and the smoked salmon one on the menu) and the dessert crepe (carmelized apples, caramel and a scoop of French vanilla ice cream) all were excellent. The owner/chef was very friendly (and polite in correcting my French pronunciation!).

    We went for brunch. The atmosphere is very nice. It's quaint, warm, charming and clean. I like a restaurant with a view of the pristine kitchen. I wish there were more "brunch" oriented crepes on the menu. Really only one egg crepe. I would have liked more choices. My husband has several diet restrictions, and was really limited. He had to get a hot dog crepe which was nothing special. It might be nice to have some side dishes, or something extra on the plates - fruit, salad, etc.

    Elegant and simple in decor. Priced very reasonably (I was surprised this place is on OpenTable, it's a cute casual place that I'd drop into for a snack or small meal), and the crepes were delicious and filling. Our waitress was somewhat aloof and unfriendly, but she made sure we always had water and that our food got to us promptly. Probably not a great spot for dinner, the portion sizes aren't all that big. Both of my friends got the So Cocotte and were very pleased and full, and I ordered a So Chocolate with strawberries, which was beautifully presented and featured a dollop of freshly whipped Chantilly. Not too much sugar in the dessert crepe, which was really nice, and I'll definitely be returning!

    went here for dinner the other night. since they took reservations we figured the menu would be more styled for a dinner and not brunch / breakfast / lunch. We enjoyed what we ate but were starved when we left. Went next door to a bar / restaurant for dinner. we just didn't order an appetizer at the second place. The room is nice, the service good and the crepes tasty, just not a place for dinner

    I read the reviews and had high expectations for this place. What a gem! The crepes were fab (though I admit I have never been to France, a good meal is a good meal, right?). In any case, we brought some bubbly and had mimosas with our crepes to celebrate a friend's birthday. We each had one or two crepes and the bill was more than a good deal. Will be back for sure!

    I Dhy away from crepe places outside of France because it's just not the same. Well, this place is run by two Frenchmen from Lyon and they make incredible crepes! Both their savory and sweet crepes are delightful. It is also quite a bargain for the level of food you get their. I also love the fact that it is a byob!

    Myself and six of my high school friends all came to this restaurant after a long day in the city, and there was a large table waiting for us in the back, where we had it to ourselves mostly. The staff was very accommodating in the fact most of our party did not arrive on time for the reservation. The food was perfect, and classier than your average restaurant, but without the hoity-toity atmosphere. It was very relaxed and easy atmosphere and, even though the menu was limited, we all had a tough time choosing just one! Sweet crepes and savory crepes, you get the whole spectrum of So Crepe cuisine!

    This charming restaurant located on the 1500 block of South Street serves true to form French crepes, all based on the season. I have been to the restaurant in the summer and winter - both times the food was outstanding. And the dessert crepes are phenomenal. Try it once - and you will be thinking of your next visit.

    We dined on a Saturday at noon. We were not greeted for 10 mins. First water was brought, then the waitress left. We asked her to order coffee. Some time later, coffee was brought. No milk, no sugar. We asked, more time passed. When our order was finally taken, it took about an hour to come. The food was pretty good, but we wanted to order dessert crepes. Since our waitress was no where to be found & we knew it would take a long time, we ordered from the man who brought our food. He repeated our order back to us. About a half hour later, our waitress came over & asked if we wanted the check. We responded that we ordered dessert. The food runner came back over & said, did you order dessert? We just asked to leave. It was a 2 hour brunch.

    I had one crepe in my life and it was in an italian resturant. I was on a mission to find a authentic french crepe resturant. I found So Crepe on Restaurnt.com and we were so satisfied with their crepes. I had the So French absolutely delicious. My boyfriend had one with chicken dont recall the name and that was juist the same. Mmmmm!!! The cheif was eager to know how we enjoyed our crepes and we were pleased to announce they were divine! I can't wait to go back!!! I am so happy I am able to write a good review for once! Only thing we did not enjoy so much was our crepe dessert, it was just not our taste.
