The Rooster in downtown St Louis is a great go-to eatery. They serve plenty of crêpes including those made with goat cheese, German-style sausage, and breakfast foods. Rooster has other breakfast, lunch, and dinner options to choose from, too, in case some people in your party aren’t in the mood for crêpes (their loss), as well as local beers on draft to wash it all down.

4. Lake Placid, NY - Big Mountain Deli and Crêperie

Reviews across platforms such as Trip Advisor, Zomato, and FourSquare rave about the breakfast and dessert crêpes at Big Mountain Deli and Crêperie in Lake Placid. Although they have nearly 50 sandwich options as well, you can’t leave without ordering a crêpe – they’ll even customize it to your liking if you want to switch things up from their menu. Some recommend taking it to go and eating your crêpe lakeside since there’s limited seating in the restaurant and Mirror Lake is only feet away.
3. Kailua, HI - Crêpes No Ka Oi

You can spend your whole day at Crêpes No Ka Oi eating every meal in crêpe-form, if you’re a serious fan of the dish. The menu names for each crêpe remind you that you’re on an island and sound as good as what’s in them. The Sinfully Ono is made with three types of chocolate and powdered chocolate, and the Hukilau is made with smoked salmon, sautéed onions, capers, lemon wedge, and a side of cream cheese; these are just two out of a long list of options. Cue the mouth-watering.
2. Travelers Rest, SC - Tandem Crêperie & Coffeehouse
Tandem Crêperie and Coffeehouse serves seasonal crêpes. With great coffee choices, like the honey lavender latte, and fresh crêpes that are heavily filled, to the point that they resemble burritos, this crêperie won’t disappoint. If the sausage potato crêpe isn’t enough, Tandem also offers waffles and granola on their menu.
1. Dripping Springs, TX - Crêpe Crazy

The crêpes at Crêpe Crazy in this Texas town near Austin are a work of art. If you’re having them for breakfast, treat yourself to the Norwegian with lox, scrambled eggs, lemon-dill cream cheese, pickled red onion, and capers — who needs the extra dough of a bagel when you can have your lox on a crêpe? If dessert is what you’re after, try the s’mores crêpe option or the dulce de leche Turtle.
