Looking for an oasis in St. George to enjoy a unique meal with friendly service and a casual European vibe? The Crepery, located at the northwest corner of Bluff Street and Sunset, offers a refreshing change from ordinary breakfast and lunch choices, featuring house-made Parisian crepes wrapped around savory meat and cheese selections, or sweet crepes served with tempting fruits and custard.
This restaurant’s high ceilings, long granite bar, and modern décor feel cool and welcoming as you walk in through the second-floor entrance. Eyes are drawn to the walls by unique work by multimedia artist Carrie Ellen.
When you walk in, check the menu and order one of their specialty crepes and a beverage at the counter. Your meal and drinks will be brought to the table. The menu is a la carte. Included among the savory crepes menu are favorites Pepe Le Pesto (smoked turkey, roasted red peppers, mozzarella cheese, and pesto), Rushmore (honey cured ham, egg, and pepper jack cheese) and Garden Delight (avocado, capers, arugula, and Parmesan cheese); and on the sweet crepes side of the menu are the popular Seventh Habit (custard, strawberries or bananas, and chocolate sauce), Inigo Montoya (cajeta-caramel sauce, walnuts, and whipped cream), and Pin-Up (cheese cake filling, strawberries, and chocolate sauce). Their salads, Dulcinea, Athena, and Broadway, are very fresh and served with choice of house-made dressings.
Drinks at the Crepery are worth mentioning. The baristas make wonderful hot or cold espresso drinks, chai tea, and their famous “siphon coffee” using the nearly forgotten and precise method of making coffee, using a vacuum coffee maker. For yourself or for children, try an authentic Italian soda (many flavors), hot chocolate or a steamer (hot milk flavored with vanilla and sugar).
I can tell you from firsthand experience that the Medusa savory crepe is very tasty. It’s served casual-style, held in the hand and eaten like a slice pizza. In fact, the crepe is about the size and shape of a piece of pizza. I also tried the Mac Daddy—a savory crepe containing roasted white meat chicken, bacon, mozzarella cheese, avocado, and dill cream cheese sauce—which was also delicious. Along with the crepes, I ordered a “dirty” chai latte (served hot or cold), which was very refreshing. The “dirty” refers to an added espresso shot poured over the regular chai latte.
Not to be missed is a sweet crepe for dessert. I tried the Park Avenue, a sweet crepe filled with custard and strawberries. It was really delicious!
