Crepe & Cafe is a joint located on 41st Avenue, near Dunbar. As the name suggests, they have a large menu of crepes, although they do also serve various sandwiches, drinks and pastries. You order at the front counter, and the staff will bring the food to you once it’s ready. I had their Chicken, Red Onion, Tomato, Swiss Cheese Crepe and Mango Smoothie.
Chicken, Red Onion, Tomato, Swiss Cheese Crepe ($8.99):
I wasn’t a big fan of the crepe itself; I found it a little tough actually. I did enjoy the filling however. The chicken was tender and flavourful, with a nice bit of heat. There was also a good amount of cheese inside.
Mango Smoothie ($4.99):
The smoothie definitely had a very great flavour of mango, and was fragrant and sweet. Unfortunately, I just found it to be too icy. It tasted more like a slushie without any creaminess (I don’t know if they added any milk or other dairy products). It was also not well blended: there were a few large chunks of ice in the smoothie. They do also have shakes, which are priced for a $1 more; I don’t know if those are better.
I quite enjoyed my visit to Crepe & Cafe. The food wasn’t the greatest, but still quite good, and the prices are very fair. This isn’t a bad place to stop by for a quick bite.
