New Crepe place in Orlando

  • 11
  • Share

We just discovered a delightful new Creperie in Orlando. It is in the Fashion Square Mall, of all places! Quite an unexpected find.

Every other crepe place I've tried around town didn't even know what bechamel sauce was, let alone have it on the menu.

This place is authentic. The owner said they had just opened four days earlier, that he was a native Parisian, and had recently moved to the United States but found New York too cold. Now he's here. You certainly won't be disappointed.

Yes, there really is bechamel in Orlando!

      I'd like to know too. I even went by the Fashion Square Mall yesterday looking for a new creperie and couldn't find it. Is it inside the mall, or around the outside in a free-standing building like Olive Garden? I definitely didn't see it in the food court.

        Could not let this one go by -- as I live about 6 blocks away.

        La Creperie -- there's no sign yet -- is in the middle of the food court by Edy's Ice Cream, upstairs at the food court at Fashion Square Mall.

        The owner and two non-English speaking assistants churn out an astonishingly large list of sweet and savoury crepes, panninis, French sandwiches, etc. No beer or wine.

        We ha d# 42 - spinach, mushrooms, cheese and olives and we added avacado -- actually guac -- and artichoke hearts. Very creamy and tasty.

        I had the muffaletta, squares of lunch meat, cheese olives and peppers. And we had a dessert crepe with nutella, banana and strawberries.

        All are made on firm, crunchy, fresh whole wheat crepes and are huge. EAch is served with a small, lightly dressed salad with lettuce, sliced Roma tomato and some cukes.

        With tea and a water it was under $30. We took half of it home.

        Fabulous for the price and location. Don't miss it, although next time I'd grab a beer from another stand and I'd try either the tuna or the one with bechamel, with chicken I think.

          Bonjour ! I am on my way to Orlando soon and since I am a 'crepe-aholic', I was just wondering if this crepere is owned by the chef or is some sort of franchise. My sister will be dragging me to many mall & if this is not a franchise it will certainly be my first stop.
          Thanks to all

            No franchise. Owner is on site.

      2. Yes, what is this place, and where in the mall is it?

        1. Is it a sit-down restaurant or a counter service? Do they have sweet and savory crepes? Let us know!

          2. i just went ahead and called the mall. they said it's called "la creperie cafe" and it's located in the food court by subway. i hope to try it out this weekend!

            1. I really hope this place gets it together. We went for lunch last weekend, and had a pretty bad experience. They took forever to make my crepe, and completely forgot about my husband's. Then the crepes were just okay. Actually mine was bad (chicken, spinach, tomates, mozzarella - how can you get that wrong?). We dumped them both and went to Panera.

              To their credit though, they were handing out sample bites of one of the dessert crepes, and it was delicious. I would definitely go back to try a full dessert crepe. The dessert menu looked really good.

                Ugh.

                The owner didn't strike me as the kind of guy who would let that slip past him if he had known. Did you complain?

                The two Latino guys wouldn't know a crepe from a brick and no English either. If they waited on you, I suspect that was the problem unless you habla Espanol.
