This was our go-to restaurant during our visit in Arequipa. Cozy atmosphere. Great cappuccinos. We tried several kinds of crepes (they have hundreds) as well as sandwiches and breakfast. We just kept ending up back here for the good food and reasonable prices. Don't miss the view of Santa Catalina from the roof, volcano in the background.

Crepes are very good. So good we came back twice. Close to Plaza and hotels. They give you the opportunity to try to make your crepe yourself - it's harder than it looks. Decent selection of craft beer, mostly imported.

Its a tad expensive if you're a backpacker like me, but the food holds a really high quality, the staff is very friendly and locals them self are very soothing and comfortable! Well worth a visit, even as a backpacker :)

Was expecting a lot, but did not meet expectations. Cold coffee with baileys and kahlua and ice cream tasted only like too much sugar, could not finish it. Pancake with chocolate and pineapple was ok, but pineapple did not taste as fresh pineapple..

We tried both savory and sweet pancakes. They were just OK, nothing special. Though, the appetizer with some meat, cheese, etc was just great. Service is OK, the girl who served us both times doesn't speak English, so she was unable to recommend us anything. Note, that if you pay by credit card, the amount will show up bigger. It... More

This place was so tasty. We loved it! One of the best sandwiches I've ever had and such a treat. Also the chocolate milkshake is awesome! We tried the crepes as well and so tasty. Nothing to fault about this place. Very well priced. Two meals and two drinks for 60sols. The service was great and the food came out... More

The atmosphere in this restaurant is just perfect for a late night snack. Crepisimo is located on Calle Santa Catalina, a short walk from the main square in Arequipa and the magnificent cathedral. The staff are friendly and attentive. The crepes are out of this world. The price is just right. The crowd appears to be mostly bohemian types who... More

We ate here three times in the three days stayed in Arequipa! The service is rapid. From ordering to eating was probably less than 15 minutes. They also give you complimentary olives to start. They have a wide range of savoury crepes from quite plain (tomato and mozzarella) to more exotic (creamy chicken curry). Their sweet crepes are also amazing.... More

On Friday night we were lucky to secure the last available table in the courtyard. We ordered two cañihua flour savory crepes (pear and goat cheese and ají de gallina), both were delicious. Complimentary green olives were nice addition to our savory crepes. There was a beautiful performance in an auditorium next to the restaurant; we could fully enjoy it... More
