Euro Crepe Cafe on the DANFORTH

hungryabbey Oct 10, 2006 01:10 AM

Went to this new place on the Danforth this morning for brunch/lunch-SO GOOD! This place is going to do really well in the neighbourhood. The have sweet and savory crepes and amazing looking european sandwhiches, salads and waffles. You can chose literally ANYTHING. The two people I was with ordered a breakfast crepe with bacon and eggs, and then you pick all teh toppings you want, all veggies, sauces, spreads- they literally have EVERYTHING you could imagine. I had the grilled chicken breast crepe and it was incredible. I was realllly tempted by the sweet crepes with ice cream, fresh fruits, caramel , marshmallows, cookie crumbs.. oh lord I will have to come for dessert one time specifically. They also make every kind of coffee/latte/espresso, even fresh squeezed juice and 18 different selections of loose tea. Haha, I know I sound like an ad but I was just really impressed and will be going like every day to try something new. Check it out!

      It's on the north side of the Danforth, just east of Carlaw, beside Il Fornello.

      Haven't tried it yet. Did you think it a bit expensive, hungryabbey?

        I thought it was okay for what it was, fresh, lottts of topping choices and made to order. It was I think like 6$ for one choice (like meat or a cheese).. then you add whatever sauces, veggies, and spreads you want for unlimited amounts. I dont mind paying 6$ for something so HUGE , like its a full meal, and very fresh. Better than a sub from subway for the same price

        A savoury crepe with one ingredient is $6, for two ingredients $8. For this amount you get maybe 3 slices each of ham and cheese for example. The crepe itself is decent, eggy, made to order. Nothing spectacular but better than others I've had in TO.
        The weird thing is the toppings table. It's like a sub shop or hot dog model of crepe: you can get a bunch of spreads, veg, olives, even sauerkraut, on your crepe. I didn't realize until I had ordered, and I skipped it since I just wanted a basic ham and cheese crepe.
        They also have waffles. I'll be back because I live in the area but I wouldn't say this is a destination crepe place.

          So...you pay for the "main" ingredients, but then there are free fillings (like in a sub shop)? Well. That's changes everything then. I thought that you pay by each individual filling! Thanks, Jules! I feel like I'm following in your footsteps, rofl!
