Ordered a dish that was supposedly gluten free (brussels sprouts). Was charged a $2 gluten allergy fee even though there were no changes to the dish. Even worse, it was cross contaminated anyway and I became sick. I do not recommend this place for anyone who must avoid gluten.

The waitress forgot to put Gluten Free in when she entered my order. So the first time she brought it out, I asked just in case and she looked at it for a minute and said it didn't look gluten free. (Their GF crepes are a light brown) they remade it and after 20 minutes (my standard reaction time), no reaction. The stuffed crepes are HUGE. Definitely shareable. Just make sure that it's a light brown and not white.

Chicken tarragon crepe was great, though the broccoli was too stalky.

I discovered Simply Crepes at the Gluten & Allergen Event in Raleigh and have been loyal ever since. Lots of savory and sweet gluten free items to choose from. I spoke with the manager and they DO have a separate griddle for Allergens. It's an open kitchen and neat that you can go up and watch them make your gluten free crepe. I would highly recommend to anyone that eats Gluten Free.

This place is NOT celiac friendly. They do have lots of GF options and keep the dough in a separate bowl, but they have only 2 skillets and use both of them for gluten containing crepes, so there is no way to avoid cross contamination. This place is nice though and may be a great choice for not celiac people.

Very cute place. I give it a 5 for the amount of GF options. I give my crepe 3 stars. I ordered the vegetable crepe with pesto and red pepper sauce and it came out looking amazing. Unfortunately the crepe itself is very, very dry. There was just a dab of this sauce on the crepe, but either that or some other sauce was much needed. I've had GF Crepes at another establishment made with almond flour and it was not dry at all so I'm guessing the buckwheat is the culprit. I will try again with a dessert crepe next time.

The menu is marked with many gf options which are excellent and I've never felt ill after eating there. I have not been diagnosed with Celiac but have had to eat gf for 5 yrs or suffer the consequences. We eat here about once/month and have always had a good experience. Staff is knowledgable.

I have Celiac, I have between here 3 times. Twice I have gotten sick from my supposedly gluten free order. Last time I watched as the cook made a gluten crepe and without washing their hands made my gluten free order. I will never go back.

Ordered a gluten free simply breakfast crepe and halfway through the manager stormed over asking if I have an allergy or if gluten free is a preference. I told her I have celiac disease and she said the crepe was not gluten free. I'll now spend the next 3 days getting violently ill.

First visit today and the first dining out I've done since being diagnosed with Celiac's. Simply Crepes has gluten free options that actually taste great! They have separate preparation areas, separate tools/cookware, and trained staff. My questions about cross-contamination were answered cheerfully, the service was great, and so was the food!

The presentation was great. The flavors were diverse and rich but not overpowering. My fiancé was ecstatic because she has never had a crepe due to celiacs disease. She had only good things to say about what she ordered.

I ordered the cordon bleu and she had the turkey and Gouda crepe. She also ordered the banana nut crepe desert. She said that was also delicious.

I am unable to comment on the desert because I am very full from my meal. In other words the portion sizes are generous.

I will be returning to this establishment soon.

Awesome and creative menu at good prices (except for the $3 coffee)! Many gluten free options. The crepe is made from buckwheat and tasted pretty good! I'm not picky though. If you check in on yelp you get a free cappuccino!

If you can tolerate buckwheat, you will enjoy their crepes. This restaurant offers quite a few gluten free renditions/versions of their main menu dish options. Their menu also indicates a gluten free icon next to those particular menu options making it more convenient for 'us' - the allergy suffering diners. Also, if you can drink coffee, try their "Jamaican Me Crazy" hot coffee, it has beautiful hazelnut notes and is a favorite. Make sure you let the wait-server staff of your allergy and make a request to speak to the manager on duty to discuss any concerns regarding their menu options and food preparation. The decor is where "quaint meets tuscan rustic" and is a sweet place to have breakfast and lunch, although they also serve dinner crepes as well. I rated this establishment 4 stars only because I feel servers in any restaurant should be given additional training from their employer on how to service clients with our special food allergy needs and concerns as this would make our dining experience more enjoyable. Otherwise it is a sweet place to dine, in my opinion. Hope your experience will be sweet too.

Once I said I have a gluten allergy and have Celiac, the waiter immediately said that they change gloves and utensils, etc. My food took longer to come out because they had to take the time to sanitize. Very good.

Same quantity as everybody else i was eating with (they didn’t have gluten allergies). The quality was amazing. The gluten free crepes are darker than the regular crepes so that’s how you will know if they are the gluten free ones or not.

I ordered a gluten free Buckwheat crepe and told the server about my gluten allergy. When they brought out my meal, the crepe did not look right, when i asked the server she assured me it was the buckwheat crepe. I had one of the cooks check, it was a normal crepe. I also get sick every time I go there, even when eating the “gluten free” options.

Most things say they can be made gluten free

Excellent variety of GF crepes, both sweet & savory. The GF crepes are also dairy free, made from buckwheat. The atmosphere is great. I highly recommend this restaurant. My husband & I eat here every time we are in this area.
