Le Papillon easily has the best crepes in the city. They are larger and crisper than the ones on this list, which makes it more of a meal.

Whoaa, where's Pastel near Finch? The batter they use is the best. And it's so cute watching elderly Italian and Cantonese couples eating together here all the time.

I vote Crepe It Up. They give more filling & less dough, but that's not the best part.

The best part is the people. Rabi and the girls there are sooo warm, welcoming, and friendly, I've practically adjusted to a diet of crepes just to be there.

Great vibe, and to me, that matters.

Fun fact: there ARE crepes outside of Kensington. The Yellow Cup on the West Mall (across from Cloverdale) makes crepes as good as my own. Oui, oui!
