What to say of this amazing hidden jewel? Cheap and tasty sandwiches, crepes, hot-dogs... everything! Really fast service and the up-stairs small floor with its big, wooden tables is so cosy - perfect for winter evenings! Patience when its lunch/supper time, it gets a little crowded. The only negative I could say is that I'd prefer it if it were... More

My go to place for cheap street food! While they have a restaurant upstairs to eat your crepes I prefer them on the go. Their formules are incredibly cheap at 5€ for a savoury crepe of your choice, a nutella crepe and a drink! (They allow me to swap my nutella crepe for a sugar one which was a bonus)... More

We went to the Creperie Genia several times while staying in our place in Montparnasse. It is wonderful!!! Many places in town pre-make their crepes and warm them for you, not here they are fresh. The savory chicken with egg is amazing!! As are the Nutella ones. Try this place.

We popped in here for a quick snack stop. Great selection of sweet or savoury crepes along with paninis and other light bites. We decided to sit upstairs which had a very sweet traditional feel, but take away was a popular choice. Toilet up there for use as well. The crepes were delicious so we were very satisfied upon leaving.... More

This place is a little slice of heaven. When in Paris I seek this place out. The savory and sweet crepe combo for 5E is amazing. I haven't had a crepe I didn't like at Genia's. Eat in upstairs and savor a little slice of Paris. Bon appetite !

We got the special which is a savory crepe, drink, and dessert crepe for 5 euro. You can't beat the price. We ordered our crepe, sat upstairs and waited for our number to be called. Get there early or there will be a line. Lots of students from the university. We liked it so much that we went there again.

Creperie Genia is easy to spot as there is a lot of crowd outside. There is a seating section above and a take away at the entrance. The couple behind the counter works non stop to be able to meet the orders. While I waited for mine for 15 minutes, I kept watching them make the crepes. Of course you... More

Stopped in here after googling bets crapes close by and certainly wasn't disappointed, the crapes were lovely and the fillings also very nice. I did want strawberry which they were out of but sent for the banana with Nutella instead which was heavy but delicious. Definitely worth stopping by if you in the mood for something sweet.

Pretty good crepes. You can get a cheap meal for 5€. Had the tuna and cheese which was good. The ham and cheese was good as well. The Nutella crepe was good too. There is an upstairs seating area which was unexpected. It isn't a fussy place but if you want a decent crepe and drink for 5€, well worth... More

I've eaten at Creperie Genia at least 10 times during my many, prolonged stays in Paris. You can get a panini, sugar crepe and drink for only €4, and they have a couple of other well-priced meal combinations. The food is good (and hot!), and there's nice seating upstairs.
