The Crepe and the Ribbon - Haddonfield
My affection for the Collingswood/Haddonfield area continues to grow as I spend more time in that area. This Sunday was no exception.
Looking for a brunch spot, we settled upon a crepe place in an unassuming indoor venue on Kings Highway. WIthout a menu or a website to speak of, we went in hoping for the best. Very cute decor, with a nice bistro feel. Our server greeted us promptly and sat us a high top tucked in the corner. A great menu with lots of options (salads, sandwiches, paninis) and of course, a page of sweet and a page of savory crepes. After some piping hot (and STRONG) coffee was delivered, we ordered. I got the special crepe, with chicken, portobellos, spinach, goat cheese and a creamy mushroom sauce. Jules (my girlfriend) got the Santa Fe, with chicken, salsa, avocado puree and a light sour cream-ish sauce. The portions were huge, which were very suitable at the 8-10$ price point. The crepes were tender and overstuffed, artfully put together. The spinach was sauteed in a little garlic, giving another layer of flavor to my meal.
Still, we couldn't leave without a taste of the savory crepes. Our server, who had been engaged in witty banter with all the patrons (very pleasantly, I might add), recommended their cannoli crepe, with house-made ricotta cream and a crepe with crumbled cannoli shells. We went one step further and added nutella and strawberries to make this indulgence ever more decadent. It surely did not disappoint. The filling was quite rich, so it was good that after our savories, that we split this tasty treat.
Our coffee was refilled 3 times and the service was impeccable. Really a nice change from my typical greasy spoon breakfast. Will definitely be back. I encourage everyone to go out of their way to go see Sebastian and enjoy the fantastic eats here!
