This place in Ybor City (not far from Centro Ybor) has decent food. I tried one savory and one sweet crepe. The savory had shredded chicken with curried sour cream and some cheese (cheddar?). More peppery than rich with curry, it packed some good flavor, tho i would have doubled the curry and added some kind of vegetable. The sweet crepe was overstuffed with apricot jam (not "apricots" as tyhe menu claimed) with no brie to be found as the menu said. way too much jam. at over $7 per crepe, this rerstaurant enjoys the highest markups around. No sides or veggies come with the crepes. the "spiced cider" tasted more like straight apple juice, with no boldness to the spice--- it was pretty sweet. while i enjoyed the curried crepe, i'd be hesitant to return--- i would probably just make my own crepes at home at $1-$2 a pop.
My fiancee and I have eaten at La Creperia several times. We love crepes and the first time we were actually lured in by the owner making crepes in the window. We sat up at the bar and enjoyed getting to meet him. I think he was a crepe vendor in Europe and then was in south Florida for some time.
Anyway, we've found the food quality to be pretty uneven and the service has overall been poor the couple of times we've been. We've also ordered things that come out and then don't match what's on the menu. It is an easy-going place and I want to see him do well, but we've given up trying to have meals there. Might try it again sometime just for desert.
Ybor rents probably have something to do with it.
We went there a few months ago when we spent an overnight in Ybor. Both the crepe -- cheese and mushroom and something, I think -- and a croque monsieur were both yummy.
The owner is pretty interesting in a high-strung way. He talked both of us out of what we initially ordered and insisted we get one of the half-dozen or so items he recommended. It took walking up to him and being very insistent after he put the order in to get him to agree to a substitution of brie for Swiss. Not because substitutions aren't allowed -- patrons are supposedly welcome to design their own crepe -- but because he was so adamant about how he liked this particular crepe.
There was also a hapless new waiter who seemed to be fresh off a plane from Greece and knew five words of English who was cheerfully getting everyone's orders wrong. Patrons didn't mind too much.. it's that kind of easygoing place.. but boy did the owner berate him in a staff huddle.
Fun place. Tasty crepes. And you're paying for the location. It's not like they've got much direct competition for affordable "cute" breakfast/light lunch from what I could tell.. and when you're not selling beer and well drinks 'til 4AM you have to cover the bills somehow.
