Crazy About Crepes

For the longest time, Marvin and I thought that there totally needed be a crepe restaurant in town and if we didn’t find one, we’d open one up!  Well lucky for us, we recently discovered a delicious crepe place, and even better, it’s only 10 minutes from our house.  Phew!  I wasn’t sure if we really knew anything about opening up a restaurant… Anyhow, we decided to take a visit over Labor Day and were quite impressed… and a week later I went back with a few friends.

4 friends to be exact.

This cute little restaurant serves crepes, soups, paninis and drinks galore!

The possibilities of savory and sweet crepes are endless!

Looking at this photo always makes me hungry so I’ll be linking this up to…

Sweet Shot Day

One of my fave crepes is the Monte Cristo, filled with grilled chicken, ham, cheddar and topped with raspberry sauce!? Yes, raspberry sauce! πŸ™‚

And after these friends stuffed themselves full, they decided to take a walk down around the historic town of Liberty…

Where a court house, police station, fountains, antique shops, the first Jesse James bank hold up in America and a salon with a beautiful saying can be found!

My, what a beautiful night we had.

What new local restaurants have you discovered?

    I’m a big fan of crepes! How lucky you are to have a crepe cafe so close!

    We don’t have very many restaurants in my neck of the woods. I try to make up for it when I visit my sisters in CA and NY. πŸ™‚

    Those crepes look delicious! I {heart} monte cristo!

    I discovered something lately but not a restaurant, just a bar in my neighborhood I think I’ll like.

    Some of those photos look delicious!

    I LURVE crepes!!! I am the same I found a crepe place right near our house which is the place to go when I am out with my munchkin or mom.

    I am trying to explore new places (we were mostly looking for asian food because of the lack of them here) but I do have a few restaurants I want to try.

    I’ve been eating at a lot of farm-to-table restaurants lately and had a killer french toast at one over the weekend. Crepes I typically get at one of the local farmer’s markets if I’m in the mood. They have some fantastic sweet and savory ones.

    The food looks delicious and so pretty too. Nothing new around here, but maybe that will be a push for the hubs and I to take a little road trip! Love your night sky shot too.

    It was fun that Saturday night! I went back again for lunch the next day and had one of their breakfast crepes – Egg, Cheddar, & Mushrooms & Spinach with bechamel sauce. It was yummy! I’m also addicted to their White Chocolate Frozen Chocolate Frappe, the one we all had last time! We should go back again sometime!

    WOW. That picture of the sky is BEAUTIFUL! Takes my breath away.

    I have been on the hunt for a crepe restaurant! Glad you finally found one πŸ™‚

    Dear Sandy-Wandy,

    I was very jealous of your crepe and custard that you got that day. I am almost never bested by you. But I will admit that your food and dessert was way yummier… lol.

    Love,

    Love crepes, dessert or otherwise. We used to have one near our house in the Bay Area, but sadly there isn’t one here. There is one place near us that has A crepe on its menu (sad that I know that, right?)

    Sugar also contributes to the moistness of desserts and their tenderness. The flour or starch component in most desserts serves as a protein and gives the dessert structure. Different flours such as All-Purpose Flour or Pastry Flour provide a less rigid gluten network and therefore a different texture. Along with flour desserts may contain a dairy product.,,
