Always delicious! I've introduced several friends to crepes and everyone comes away loving them from French Market. My teens both love it too - especially the Nutella-Strawberry crepes!

The crepes are superb -- whether as a lunch/meal or as dessert. Choices are great and service is very good. The dining area is very clean. Service is good...professional.

This is a wonderful hidden gem in Downtown Knoxville. The new location has more room and I believe and expanded menu. Crepes are fantastic as is everything else on menu. Worth a visit for sure.

The French Market is a beautiful quaint restaurant that makes you feel like your in New Orleans! They have the best crepes & beignets.

We would meet our daughter half way from Nashville in Knoxville, stay downtown and walk to play and eat. This diner moved recently but we found it and enjoyed everything immensely. Daughter always gets sweet crepes and I get savory. Wonderful pastries, too.
