Cafe Papillon: A Rehoboth Beach Favorite

Tuesday, August 30, 2011
One of the things I look forward to most during our vacations in Rehoboth Beach is a visit (or 2 or 3, OK, maybe 5) to Cafe Papillon, a French bakery and cafe tucked away in picturesque Penny Lane. Every single time I go to Cafe Papillon I am immediately transported to Paris. The pastries, croissants, and crepes are so authentic that, if it weren't for the English speaking people around me, I'd swear I was in France. Everything is made fresh on the premises daily...can't beat that.

Although everything is delicious, my ultimate favorite are the crepes. Oh. My. God. You will NEVER find a better crepe this side of the Atlantic. The flavors are endless, and it takes me 10 minutes to make a decision.

You can watch them make the crepes before your very eyes. This is a skill, and I never tire of watching.

Chocolate & Almonds

Cafe Papillon also serves an assortment of salads and sandwiches. In addition to the wonderful food, the cafe offers hot and cold drinks such as freshly squeezed lemonade, lattes and cappuccinos. All of which can be enjoyed in a sidewalk, bistro-like setting.

Who needs the beach when you linger in a "Parisian" cafe all day???
