Good crepes – Went here after my wife had a craving for crepes. I'm not a huge crepe fan, but these were pretty good. We'll probably go back at some point.
Worst dining experience of my life! – I came to the Crape Cafe with my husband and two kids ages 4 and 6. After we got seated and ordered we waited for an hour for our food to arrive. I noticed that the two tables seated after us got served first. When I questioned the waitress about this she rolled her eyes and in an annoyed tone explained that they only had two crepe makers so the smaller party had to be served first and the order of seating did not matter. By the time our food arrived my kids were miserable and hungry and so was I. The food was definitely not worth all the wait and the service was very poor. Never coming back again.
Okay food , way overpriced, tiny portions – We ordered a French onion soup a westchester crepe and a caramelized banana crepe.
The soup was okay - nothing great. It came in an 8 ounce cup and was priced at $7.
The savory crepe had a few slices of tomato, a little caramelized onion some spinach leaves and a few slices of avocado. We were sharing the crepe and when it was first served, I thought the chef had split into two and the waitress would get the other half for my wife. Next came an empty plate. It was the full crepe and the size was no bigger than a 5 inch by 5 inch sandwich. This crepe was $15. The taste was decent.
The desert crepe was a disaster. The cream cheese filling was overpowering and the crepe was not fully cooked. The caramelized bananas were pretty good. At the end of the disaster we were still hungry and forked out $40 for the night.
We then ended up getting a $6 foot-long at subway after this experience.
French Flair and Hospitality – I love eating here on a sunny morning with a friend, grabbing a table outside and people watching. The servers still pay attention to outdoor tables, but you get respite and a chance to chat the day away!
I really enjoyed the fruit crepe of the day last time, it had strawberries, blueberries, and banana in it, creme fraiche too. Yummmy. We had a veggie crepe too which was so friggin delicious I probably drooled. It was Alcena's Crepe: 2 eggs, sautèed spinach, mushrooms, caramelized onion and garlic in a warm crepe. Drool. Just thinking about it makes me hungry.
So, you can get coupons for this place through the Entertainment Book, Groupon or Living Social Deals at times, and sometimes other places. The servers are sweet and can make your stuff to order if you have special needs/likes. Check it out! You'll be happy you did (according to me).
Yummy crepes – The caramelized banana crepe is divine, and much more substantial than the dinner crepe I ordered. The ambiance is charming, like a cozy cafe in Paris, and it's a nice spot for a glass of wine and a light meal. The food was very good but, unfortunately, the happy hour food specials weren't really a great deal and the final bill was a little too high to make it a place I would go back to often.
Delicious crepes – Great ambiance in this neighborhood restaurant. Went there for happy hour and loved the wine selection and generous wine pours for the price. Crepes were very unique and very tasty - although portions for the savory crepes could be larger to match the prices.
Great Place! – We've been here twice now and I have been very happy with this quaint little place. It has a very authentic parisian feel. The waitress/hostesses we had have been very nice and accomodating both times. Very good service here. I think that the mushroom medley I had and the pesto crepe that my bf had the first time were far better than the 2 we had this weekend, J's and blame it on rio... But thats more of a personal taste issue. The dessert crepes so far have been excellent. The texture is perfect. Would definitely recommend!
Amazing crepes, cute ambience – Went to Crepe Cafe after reading a glowing review in the newspaper, and it was right! This place knows how to do crepes! Absolutely delicious savory and sweet crepes. I highly recommend the "Blueberry Farm" fruit crepe, which was bursting with fresh blueberries, homemade whipped cream, and a yummy not-too-sweet blueberry compote. Every crepe on every table looked good. The savory crepes, loaded with meat, cheese and veggies, are enormous. Two people could easily share one. They do great cappuccinos and lattes too.
The only slightly negative thing I noticed is that the tables are VERY close together, due to tight spaces. It's hard to walk between them without bumping something. Once, seated at a table for two that was literally 3-inches away from the next table, it felt like we were dining with the other couple! Fortunately, they were nice. Space is what it is, and not much can be done (other than taking away some tables, which would make the wait longer!), but just thought it ought to be mentioned. All in all, a GREAT place. Delicious!
Cute, quaint & delicious! – This restaurant is a great date place and a great place to share a bottle of wine with friends. My husband & I like to sit at the little bar, share a crepe and a glass of wine and watch the cook make crepes. Service has always been great. The last time we were there we were served by the owner. She was very attentive and friendly. My personal favorites are The Westchester, a yummy crepe with swiss cheese, avacado, carmelized onions, roma tomatoes, and spinach; Julie's Salad, full of asparagus, avacado, artichoke hearts, tomato, and toasted almonds; and The Nutella Banana dessert crepe! Heaven!
RUDE! – The first time I went there, the waitress was extremely rude and stuck up. When I asked her about their wine list she acted like I was incapable of reading and did not take the time to suggest a white wine that would pair well with my crepe.
These people are rude.
The second time I called in to check who busy they are so I could stop by in 15mins the person who answered the phone said, "if we were busy this would be a bad time to talk on the phone." So I told her I would call her back even though what I should have said was you are rude and I will take my appetite somewhere else.
There's nothing on that menu of theirs that you simply can't make at home. I eat out for the convenience.
Don't go here if you plan on wasting your money and time.
Try making crepes at home or fly to france for the best crepes.
