This is a special weekend for my wife and I would love to take her out Sat or Sun morning for the best crepes in the city where we can casually sit back and enjoy the food and hopefully wonderful coffee too.

Thank you,
Porto

  1. Not sure about crepes but if you like omelets check out Jacques Bistro du Parc on Cumberland in Yorkville. The best omelets in the city and very quaint, parisan feel to the place. The husband and wife owners are wonderful. They also do quiche, poached salmon and various other goodies. Oh yeah, almost forgot - great coffee!!

          Hi torontofoodiegirl, yup they certainly are....probably one of their busiest times. Better make a reservation. You're in for a treat....enjoy!

            Thanks guys!

              millygirl - had a lovely brunch there yesterday (delicious omelette) at a table by the window. Thanks for the recco.

                Oh good, glad to hear you enjoyed it TFG.

        2. I've never been to Crepes a Gogo but it comes to me highly recommended from quite a few people.
          Maybe some others on the board have a first-hand experience that will you help you more?

          1. You can try the Prague. (www.theprague.ca) at Queen and Bathurst. Their Palacinky (Czech crepes) are pretty awesome.

              Sounds like Palacinky could really be nice. It's to bad I cant view the Crepesagogo, website they currently have a posting of a new location move. Do you know if it gets busy on a Sunday morning?

              Thanks so far everyone.

            2. Crepes a Gogo is a great little spot, but keep in mind there are only a couple of seats, so it might be tough to sit back and relax..the crepes are small in size and fairly sparce in fillings to be honest.
              My favorite place for crepes is in Etobicoke, Yellow Cup Cafe www.yellowcupcafe.com at dundas/427..HUGE crepes, great coffee and comfy chairs!

              1. How about a little art, a little crepe? Anybody tried this place?

                  I may try both this weekend. (Sat) Yellowcupcafe (Sun) Prague
                  Thanks hounds, anymore suggestions please send them along.

                    I am a big fan of prague for certain things but I wouldn't classify it as a comfortable place to sit back and enjoy a special time. The tables are very close to each other and when it is busy, you are largely affected. Plus, I would be surprised if their coffee is particularly good.

                    Further along Queen and across from City TV is Cafe Crepe. They have good crepes and excellent americanos. The downside to this place is the re-heated crepes which are spongey. I like to go early when they are making them fresh and we always request a fresh crepe when they are crispy and quite good. Grab a booth and you can sit and confortably enjoy your time to your heart's content.

                    I have heard very good things about Crepe It Up on Church St but have never been.

                      Yeah, the coffee at the Prague isn't so great, the crepes are worth the crowds, though, IMO. Cafe crepe isn't bad, but it could be so much better. I was really insulted once when I asked for ice cream with my crepe and they brought me Chapman's vanilla. Talk about cheapening your product.

                      1. re: currycue

                        I will have to try the Prague crepes. I saw great looking crepes this morning at Sunrise on Roncy south of Dundas. The waffle with cream I had was fantastic. My friend thoroughly enjoyed the omelette and hash browns.

                        Cafe Crepe can be rubbery, so I will sometimes keep walking if I see they arent making fresh ones.

                        1. re: deelicious

                          Tried a crepe today at Sunrise. It was awful!

                  2. re: Googs

                    Art Square is a nice little place -- delicious crepes, waffles and espresso. Last time I was there I had the spinach and walnut crepe - YUM. Definitely recommended, and you can check out the progress on the new AGO construction across the street.

                    1. re: Googs

                      I was there a few weeks ago for lunch, I had the spinach, feta & sun-dried tomato buckwheat crepe, very good. My latte was just OK. Lovely vibe though, staff were very nice, and I love the courtyard.

                      1. re: kiwiFRUIT

                        They have a courtyard too! That sounds irresistable. I just love the idea of crepes, coffee, and an art gallery all under one roof. Adding a sunny courtyard makes that about perfect. How romantic!

                    2. Crepes a GoGo hands down. No contest, sit on the patio out front. Easy choice, best crepes in the city.
