About

This restaurant is permanently closed. 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.

This may be a better place for smaller parties. We had 7 people & food came out at different times, even though it was ordered together. Eggs were over cooked for the Benedict entree & hollandaise sauce was sparse at best.

This place has fantastic food but you just need to understand what type of place it is. IT IS NOT RESTAURANT. It is essentially a little cafe where you seat yourself (which was a little irritating after making a reservation, because they didn't honor our reservation) and then wait forever for a person to take your order. We waited 20 minutes just to get water glasses on our table, and then waited another 20 minutes to put in our coffee and food order. That being said, the food and coffee really was incredible. This place is a must for food, you just need to be aware of what you are getting yourself into (cafe style, poor service).

The food was good and came quick. We had to vegie option crepes and brought our own wine.Service was non-existant. The waitress placed a bottle of water on our table but did not greet us. Came by and dropped off the menus - with just a half smile. Came by at the end to ask if we'd like dessert but did not give us a menu until we asked. No thank you for coming. It was bizarre. The food was tasty and it didn't break the bank. We live nearby...maybe we'd come again.

These Crepes are so good. I tried both the savory and the sweet and loved every bite. Highly recommend dropping in for brunch, lunch, or whenever. It's a cozy little place with great service and excellent food.

Our savory crepes were delicious - we weren't sure we had room for a dessert crepe but we ordered one anyway. So glad we did - the s'mores crepe was delicious too!

Our first time there and hopefully not last. Food was very good and quite filling for crepes. Husband and I split one to have 1-1/2 as entree and then 1/2 of a dessert. Very full at end of that. Great options and good use of local products. Near arts scene also .

I have been dining at So Crepe for roughly four years. I have never been disappointed. The restaurant is small and cozy, perfect for a relaxed brunch or lunch, as well as dinner. The menu is seasonal, consisting of savory and sweet (dessert) crepes. All menu items are well portioned, reasonably priced, and delicious. My favorite entree is chicken crepe with dijon mustard sauce. I have also tried the crepe with brie, ham and mushrooms, salmon, and yes, even the hot dog crepe. I would never leave So Crepe without having dessert. My favorite is the seasonal fruit crepe topped with Nutella. However, this time, I wanted something a little on the plain side, so I opted for the sugar and lemon crepe. It was wafer thin with just the right amount of lemon and sugar - sweet and sour. All of the employees at So Crepe are professional, attentive, and caring. The servers are well trained regarding the menu and always offer some excellent suggestions. I never tire of the food at So Crepe. It is a delightful restaurant offering a taste of France on South Street.

Awesome little crepe place with the friendliest staff.
The "savory crepes" are huge and stuffed with the yummiest ingredients. Everything is made to order so if you're picky, like me, you can add or subtract ingredient every and the staff is more that happy to accommodate.
The desert crepes are just as yummy. Try the So Suzette, with the Grand Marnier drizzled on top and set aflame, and a French press!

We had 4 crepes - 2 entrees and 2 desserts. Not much filling in the entrees which were relatively dry. Sodas are canned. Would go back for the delicious dessert crepes, skip the entrees, and bring your own drink or stick to water.

We went there for a Sunday Brunch and found a charming although slightly stressed, hostess/waitress/bus person who let us know that they had been surprised on a, usually sleepy, Sunday morning by a large group and several more tables of diners than typical. This is a small place that is quite nice and the crepes are both creative and excellently presented. The toughest decision is whether to have a savory crepe, a dessert crepe or both. We chose both and left thoroughly gratified and greatly looking forward to the ensuing food coma! You will enjoy this restaurant and we will enjoy working our way through their menu!!

A modest restaurant, delicious crepes from small menu. Cheerful service, great value. Bring your own hard cider or beer. Reminds us of little creperies in France.

Not bad at all, but also nothing all that special unless you have dietary restrictions. This is definitely a must go place if you are Gluten Free or Vegetarian (maybe Vegan too?).

Be aware that the savory crepes come on a Buckwheat crepe by default. This didn't bother me at all, but my wife hated them.

I was promptly greeted and seated. I received my delicious mocha latte with 2-3 minutes of ordering it, and my crepe within 5. The food had a great presentation temperature amount and flavor. The price was appropriate for the serving except the latte was about 4 oz I would expect 6. My server was pleasant but slightly forgetful. I would absolutely recommend dining here.

You can BYOB which helped the food because there was too much blue cheese and little else in my crepe. The dessert crepe was a little better. Service was very friendly. Tables are well spaced so you get a little privacy and the restaurant was not crowded at all on a Saturday night. Very easy to get a reservation. Quick to get food and check and run around the corner to catch a show on Broad St.

So Riviera is my favorite. They also have specials, which often includes So Prosciutto.
The dessert crepes are out of this world.

Great owner, welcoming and kind staff. Crepes are great, especially the goat cheese. Highlight is the homemade whipped ketchup, fresh orange juice, etc.
