Located on Propsect Road in the foyer of the Payinthi Building, Creperie & Co. is a relaxing new cafe spot with natural light streaming in through the windows. With the smell of freshly
made crepes and coffee in the air, it’s easy to believe that just for a moment you’ve been transported to Paris.
The cafe boasts an impressive range of savoury crepes, sweet crepes and poffertjes. Crepe making has an element of theatrics, and diners can view their crepes being made across 3 hot plates.
We tried two of their sweet crepes and a serve of their poffertjes. First up was the Gourmet Lemon and Sugar Crepe. There’s a reason this flavour is a classic – it’s sweet but the tartness of the lemon leaves a delightfully refreshing aftertaste. This lemon taste in this particular crepe was stronger than others I’ve had, but I actually liked that about it. The crunch of sugar is texturally fun, and the crepe itself was perfect in thickness. Topped with a bit of cream and as scoop of vanilla ice cream, it was unexpectedly filling!
Our second sweet crepe was the Gourmet Cinnamon Apple. Filled with house-made apple stew, crushed biscuits, cinnamon and sugar, this had a warm and comforting flavour profile. The apple stew wasn’t too sweet, it had a nice balance against the other sweeter elements of the dish. As the weather gets colder, these strike me as perfect winter flavours.
Lastly we had Poffertjes with Butterscotch Sauce, Banana, Whipped Cream and Ice Cream. These mini pancakes, which are about the size of a 20 cent coin, were fluffy in texture and extraordinarily easy to eat! The serve was generous (about 15 per serve) and the butterscotch sauce was to die for. This dish is definitely on the sweeter side compared to the crepes, but in all the best ways.
Creperie & Co. is open Wednesday to Sunday from 11:30am – 9:30pm.
