What We Enjoyed:

Sherry and I entered the Creperie transfixed by the Iron crepe stone where Laura spun the fresh gluten free batter with a special kitchen tool. The restaurant had large pictures of France all over the walls and a menu of delectable savory and sweet Crepes.

Both of us enjoyed a Savory Crepe and a Sweet Crepe.

  • Sherry started out with their Je Suis Jaloux Crepe. This savory, stuffed French pancake was filled with chicken, pesto, melted cheddar and sliced tomatoes.
  • Erin ordered the Je Suis President filled with bacon, melty brie and mozzerella cheese, tomatoes and spinach.

After devouring the Savory Crepes, which were served in a rustic cardboard carton that can easily be taken away to enjoy or dine inside at one of the bistro tablest, we moved onto dessert.

  • Sherry opted for the fresh waffle drenched in buttery Nutella and fresh strawberries
  • Erin ordered the popular A La Folie Sweet Crepe– filled with Nutella, banana and strawberries topped with fresh whipped cream.
