About Le Bistro du Village (fka Crepe du Jour)
Le Bistro du Village 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. Le Bistro Du Village 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.

Le Bistro du Village (fka Crepe du Jour) Ratings and Reviews
I don't think I have ever had a disappointing meal at CDJ, whether for lunch, an afternoon drink and snack with a friend or a full dinner. The food is always tasty and attractively prepared , wine list offers some great choices , and dessert is a must. When Scott is our server I know we are going to be treated with great service and good menu advice.
It is one of our favorite spots.
Chose this location since it was not downtown and there was an available last minute reservation. Street parking was limited. Tables were very small. No bread offered. Onion soup was bland, disappointing for a "French restaurant." Seafood pasta was very good. Lamb chops were also good, but portion seemed a bit small. Reisling by the glass was mediocre. Prices were average. See no reason to go back on our next visit to Baltimore.
We took my parents and had a lovely time - mussels and cheese plate appetizers, and delicious crepes. I had the special, the crepe oceanaire, it was delightfully filled with seafood and a delicious sauce. Our waiter was very helpful and attentive without being overbearing. No room for dessert, but we will be back!
Our family went for Easter Brunch, everyone (including grandchildren) loved their food. Even the adult children found their selections more than satisfying, and they are real foodies! Service was impeccable and the waitress was patient in explaining all selections. If you haven't been - you should go!
We enjoyed our dinner although some courses were better than others. The appetizers were just ok. The shrimp cocktail was small and the cocktail sauce a bit bland. The crab looked better but since it was loaded with cilantro, I passed on it. The mains were great. I duck was delicious and the filet that my husband ordered was cooked perfectly. The desserts were mixed with the crepes being lovely but the chocolate souffle was almost without taste. I will go back on a night when I can order a la carte.
We really enjoyed our Valentine's Day brunch here. They didn't do anything special to celebrate, but that was fine with us. I had an unbelievably good seafood crepe and the frisee salad was also delicious. This place has kind of a weird vibe, but the food and service are very good.
Boy did we enjoy this! From the restaurant's name you'd think don't waste your time if you don't want crepes. Boy would you be wrong! This place has an extensive menu. Imagine Petit Louis with a larger "French bistro"selection and an incredible assortment of crepes as well. They have vegan and vegetarian crepes ( though not marked as such). If you are gluten free like I am any crepe can be made with buckwheat (which is gluten free despite the name).
They have dessert crepes as well. Everything from butter and sugar which I got to crepe Suzette's When we were there the couple at the next table got these and coffee only.
I definitely would go there again in the near future
My friend and I had brunch at Crepes de Jour and were truly pleased with the entire experience. I made reservations, but it wasn't necessary, given the dining area had plenty of open seating. The food was fantastic (especially the home fries!) and the atmosphere was perfect. We were able to chat and catch up without having to yell over other diners or loud, ambient music. The wait staff treated us wonderfully, very attentive with no pressure to rush us along. Our dishes tasted fresh and arrived hot. We had a great time and will definitely return!
Cozy spot for a light lunch. The tiny restaurant is hosted with pride. The food was quite tasty and there were ample menu selections whether or not you eat crepes. I do not. This cafe is in the heart of Mt. wAshington, which placed it right where we needed to be on that day. And while I'd never been before, I would definitely return.
The restaurant was busy on a Saturday night, but service was prompt and friendly. The French Onion Soup was a good start to our meal, followed by the Coq Au Vin which was very tasty...tender chicken that fell off the bone in a stew and broth that tasted like it had simmered for days. The Crepes for dessert were light and delicious. I'll look forward to returning and trying other options...found the prices to be very reasonable.
I always enjoy the food. It is never very crowded so you talk. I had the onion soup and a seafood crepe Both were very good. All of the soups are good especially when they have a bisque soup I has a glass of the French white wine for $8.00 which was excellent. Always enjoyable.
This was a last minute find on a random Google search and to say I was pleasantly surprised would be an understatement. I've been to Mt. Washington several times and never knew this was tucked in to the quaint little neighborhood. We were sat immediately, got great attention from the server, their menu was both creative and had multiple options, and cocktails were on point!
When we first got there it was very quiet and peaceful, fitting for the feel of the place. After we were there for awhile a radio got turned on and the music was not what you'd expect from a place like that. I asked if they could turn it off or change the type of music but all he did was turn it down. It was better but not great. I would advise them to find a classical station that plays Mozart, Beethoven, etc. and have it in the background.
The food and service was fabulous!!!!!
So my husband and I decided to try this restaurant for a Sunday brunch and we expected to have crepes. Once we looked at the menu, however, he ordered eggs benedict and I had an omelet. I also tried the avocado soup. It was a little slow, but the food was excellent. The home fries were a bit too salty, but otherwise very flavorful.
I have been going to Crepe du Jour for at least 10 years. When our children were younger, it was a great place to take them and a friend. The kids love the crepes. We meet friends and couples there and we have never been disappointed. Everything is so fresh, French inspired, and satisfying.
If you are looking for an authentic crepe experience this is it. Although tucked away off of any main thoroughfare, this is worth the effort if you love crepes. We took our 15 year old-daughter for her birthday as she loves everything crepes and we were not disappointed. There is a nice selection of savory and sweet crepes as well as a gluten-free option. I had a seafood crepe (the jumbo lump-crab meat and shrimp were fresh) and my vegetarian son had the crepe Florentine.
There is something for everyone. The dining room is small and intimate, but not intimidating for families with young kids. There were only two waiters, but they were friendly and if you like a relaxed dining experience you will find Crepe du Jour to be charming.
I tried out Crepe du Jour Bistro on a Saturday for brunch. I was super excited to try this place out since it boasts an extensive French menu. When we arrived the host/waiter was unfriendly and ushered us quickly to a table right next to the only other diners in the entire restaurant. We ordered the assorted cheese plate, the Croque Madame and a crepe with ham, cheese, and tomato. The assorted cheese plate was big letdown--three huge slices of camembert, a bleu cheese, and another strongly-flavored, hard cheese. I felt the plate could have benefited from smaller pieces of a larger cheese selection as well as variety in the potency of the cheeses. The Croque Madame had an excessive amount of cheese, making it enjoyable at first, but too rich to finish. The crepe was decent, but nothing special--definitely could have put a little more effort into the preparation. Overall, we were disappointed with the quality of the food and service and will seek out alternatives for French cuisine in the future.
