When I recently met up with a friend in Central London, we were determined to find something other than a restaurant chain. However, neither of us were particularly hungry. So we wanted to head somewhere where we could enjoy a quick appetiser over a catch up.
We stumbled upon the Cafe Creperie London. A rustic little cafe that really did have the feel of a little Parisian joint. We nearly overlooked the place in the midst of Pret and Pizza Express chains.
My Cafe Creperie London review
Nestled in St Christopher Place, the Cafe Creperie London is well placed for a stop between shopping.
It’s absolutely nothing to look at, but they did serve up some nice crepes. My friend opted for a chocolate crepe, which was doused in a frightening amount of chocolate sauce. I meanwhile, went for the slightly healthier version – a vegetable crepe.
While I was expecting to get a basic crepe, I was pleasantly surprised when I was presented with this.
My made-to-order crepe was filled with ratatouille and dressed in cress. I would have happily ate this at a restaurant. And under £10, it would be a reasonable restaurant at that.
The downsides of Cafe Creperie is that service was slow. This left us in no doubt that our food was cooked to order. The other downside is that the rustic feel meant open doors. This meant a very drafty interior. Perfect for summer. Not so much when it’s freezing outside.
So if you don’t mind a slightly basic cafe, and want to avoid a chain restaurant may be worth a look. But a word of warning, take your coat.
