Nothing warms the heart and soul like a few hours inside this sunburst yellow creperie with a glass of hard pear cider and a Scrabble board—don’t miss the Le Trash Blanc, a bacon ‘n cheddar crepe + PBR.

I would agree with Allison. A wonderfully puzzling place! Fake flowers, a disco ball and board games galore reign here. As well as crepes filled with sweets or savory morsels. A lovely late or late late night stop.

A solid late-night option for Northwest nommers, Le Happy is a crepe restaurant masquerading as a trendy dive bar (think red lightbulbs and fake flowers). The variety here is mind-boggling: where else can you get a crepe filled with tofu, cilantro, cucumbers, onions, fermented black beans and panang sauce?

Small, dark, and scrumptious! – We went to Le Happy for the first time last night and had a thoroughly pleasant meal. We arrived around 6pm and so were able to enjoy a nice happy hour (5-7pm, mon-thurs) which included $1 off most drinks and a savory crepe special. The service wasn't quick, but we weren't in a hurry, and as the food was wonderful, a little extra time to enjoy our drinks was just fine. The astmosphere is a mixture of modern and retro including hundreds of snapshots of the opposite se* in the bathrooms. Of the four crepes we enjoyed, our favorite by far was Le Champignon. We highly recommend this restaurant for a cozy romantic dinner.

le happy, me happy, ye happy, we happy – Take imagination, humor, good ingredients, and turn crepes upside down. Nice on every level--friendly to all, fine for a rare meal alone but always designed for small crowds. Incredible staff, including one who has been there longer than forever and another who sat down with us and sampled a customer designed recipe and pronounced it good. It's just quirky enough to make out of towners feel they've eaten in Portland proper, but also savvy to carrying Paper and keeping artists in business.

Magnifique! – Le Happy is great. It's very small, but therefore romantic. It's not as highbrow as you'd expect from the website. A lot of hipsters hang out, and I felt a bit overdressed.

But the food is amazing. Try the goat cheese and caramalized onion crepe--you won't be disappointed. And be sure to save room for any of the dessert crepes--sinfully delicious and worth every calorie.

A unique experience. Definitely great!

Creperie combines subtle elegance with French cuisine to create beaucoup romance. – In Short
Deep reds, minimal lighting, wood tabletops and glamorous drapes define the simple rectangular space. Surprising touches--a tiny kitchen with a chandelier and broken eyeglasses mounted like butterflies--add a kitsch elegance. Patrons dine on crepe variations, including the Faux Vegan, creme fraiche and spinach complemented by a crimini mushroom sauce. Le Trash Blanc combines buckwheat with bacon and cheddar. For dessert, the sweet, white-flour crepes with marionberry preserve and fresh whipped cream is a must.

Love Le Happy – I have been to Le Happy many times and it is always a treat. Yum, yum, yum -- always!Their dessert crepes are delicious and fair priced for what you get. It's a great place to go with friends, or for dessert on a date. The only qualm is the small space. One Saturday night, my girls and I waited 45 minutes for a table, and because space is limited, we stood by the door, hovering (as it felt) over people eating their meal. Very uncomfortable. The service is always surperb and friendly. Don't miss out on the stacks of board games in the hall. Uno is especially fun by candlelight.

Busy, Good Food, A Little disorganized – Place was hopping at 9:30pm on a Monday night! Good crepe's, although portion size was a bit small for what they were charging - delicious though. Nice staff, if a bit distracted. Hip and happening crowd. Kids allowed and no smoking before 10pm, no kids and smoking allowed after 10pm. Very small place. Sat at a bar they had in the back. Creative cocktail menu too.

Challenge! – I challenge the frenchcuisineexpert to eat 5 or 6 crepes @ Le Happy. If the expert can indeed eat them all this expert must also be a blue ribbon award winner at local pie and hotdog eating contests.

So, if you prefer to eat from the trough please do avoid Le Happy.

jthompson – Come here on your first date or your fifth anniversary. It is a fun and sexy restaurant that can give you a perfect experience. Don't take the place too seriously, just sit back and enjoy!

Hidden gem – I ended up here at the recommendation of a friend. WOW. Enormously fun, some crepes were excellent, others were just good, but the entire experience was outstanding. The drinks were all excellent too-one ginger + gin cocktail in particular. I had a cherry vanilla martini-also good. Kind of like SE meets NW. Very truly cool place.
