How I heard of this place: I believe I first learned of Crepe Cafe through the Entertainment Book but return often for warm, savory crepes.
Type of cuisine: Gourmet crepes – savory and sweet.
Ambiance: A slice of Europe – this small, quaint, cozy cafe offers options for brunch, lunch and dinner with breakfast crepes filled with eggs, bacon and mushrooms, to sweet sensations such as a peaches & cream or banana Nutella. Great for an intimate setting, enjoying date night with your honey or a cozy space to share a meal with a friend. Limited seating in the dark wood setting.
What I ordered: I decided to branch out on this lunch visit to the Crepe Cafe. I wanted something light and something spring-y to celebrate the warmest days Seattle has seen in November since the 1940s! I opted for the JaJa, at the recommendation of our server ($13) prepard with grilled chicken, goat cheese and pesto, topped with Parmesan shavings, toasted pine nuts and sundried tomatoes. My dining companion was in a more sweet mood and ordered the Peshastin apple and cheddar crepe ($11) prepared off of a recipe from small town outside of Leavenworth. This crepe offers a generous portion of sweet Washington grown apples set atop a cheddar-filled crepe and dusted with cinnamon and sugar. The plate is decorated with whipped cream and the crepe served open-faced. In previous visits, my favorites on the menu have included the Westchester (avocado, Swiss cheese, caramelized onions, Roma tomatoes and spinach with sun-dried tomato coulis), the Stephanie (roma tomato, ricotta, parmesan, mozzarella and spinach, drizzled with pesto), the Cisco Kid (a south of the border specialty – roasted chicken, cheddar cheese, avocado, tomatoes, with a creamy chipolte lime sauce and salsa), among others.
What I loved: I most enjoyed the pesto on this visit. The flavor of fresh basil and the sharp taste of the sun-dried tomatoes were a mouthwatering combination!
Why I loved it: I love the intimate setting, the cozy, friendly and almost-like-home feel of the space. The quality of and the flavor of the crepes is generally consistent and full of flavor. The simple presentation adds a hint of personality to each plate.
Cost: Average to high ($10-$15 for savory lunch entree crepe; $7-$12 for sweet crepes)
