The 814: Give a Crepe La CrepErie

Give a Crêpe La CrêpErie is a great place to stop for breakfast, brunch or a quick snack! Not only is their name creative, but they have a great selection of food, too. They offer a variety of delicious crepes on their menu, both sweet and savory. They currently offer seven savory crepes and five sweet crepes, as well as an option to create your own! You can choose your “base” of Nutella, caramel, whipped mousse or fruit du jour, and then decide what other toppings you want such as strawberries or bananas. Each sweet crepe is then topped with powdered sugar to finish it off.

Something I was intrigued by is that they make their own home-made cinnamon caramel sauce and homemade lemon curd. A lot of businesses will just buy sauces and things like that pre-made, but knowing they go the extra mile to give their customers the best experience shows that they care. I wanted to try the banana and caramel crepe, but they were out of bananas when I went; so, I had the Nutella and strawberry crepe instead, and I really enjoyed it.

When you order, they ask if you want them to be vegan or gluten-free, which is great for customers who may have allergies or dietary restrictions. From what I understand, every crepe they serve can be made to be gluten-free or vegan. Unlike most restaurants, they have gluten free and vegan batter available all the time, so this makes Give a Crêpe more unique and more accommodating for people who may struggle eating out with dietary restrictions. They even take measures to avoid cross contamination, so people with Celiac and similar conditions are still able to get a delicious crepe.

The inside is set up so customers can watch the employees make their crepes right in front of them, which is really cool. While customers are waiting for their crepes, they can browse through other items they sell like shirts and sweatshirts with their logo on them, organic soap, lip balm, lip scrubs, stickers and more.

One downside to the restaurant is that there is nowhere to eat in-side. Customers have the option to either take their crepes to go, or they can take their crepes to the coffee shop next door, The Tipsy Bean. When you take their crepes to The Tipsy Bean, they are on dis-posable plates, which isn’t great for the environment, so that was a little disappointing.

Another thing to keep in mind is their hours. They are only open from 10a.m. until 2p.m. (every day except Monday).When I found this out, I thought it was strange that a breakfast place is only open for four hours of the day and not any earlier than 10a.m.All of the employees were really friendly and made me feel welcome. They are excellent with customers and are willing to go above and beyond to make our experience memorable. I noticed that a lot of customers were regulars, as the employees knew their orders already. It was nice to see how much they cared about their customers and how kindly they interacted with them.

Give a Crêpe La CrêpErie has something everyone will like! It is a fun experience getting to watch them make your food in front of you, and it is a great breakfast restaurant to try if you are gluten-free or vegan. Make sure you stop in and try it for yourself! For more information about Give a Crêpe La CrêpErie you can visit their website of follow them on social media @giveacrepe
