Crepes De Paris

Hi all

Tucked away in the Orchard shopping complex is a quaint little place called Crepes de Paris. Walking in you get a sense of Paris based on the very cute wall drawings. Little vignettes of the Parisian lifestyle all around you to get you in the French food mood.


You have your choice of savory or sweet crepes, with savory being your dinner crepe and sweet being your dessert.
There are 10 savory crepes to choose from:
Cheese Crepe – cheddar, parmesan and cream cheese
Ham & Cheese – Gruyere or Mozzarella cheese w/honey mustard sauce
St. Louis – turkey or ham, mozzarella cheese, mushrooms and tomato
Des Amis – bacon, mozzarella cheese, mushrooms & olives w/tomato sauce
Curry Crepe – chicken, sweet red pepper & mozzarella cheese in curry cream sauce
Spinach Crepe – Fresh cooked spinach, feta cheese and sweet red pepper
Chicken-Spinach – mushrooms, chicken, spinach and mozzarella cheese in cream sauce
Paris Special – chicken, mushrooms, black olives & mozzarella cheese w/garlic cream sauce
Viva La France – shrimp, red pepper & parmesan cheese in wine cream sauce
Le Moulin Rouge – smoked salmon with cream cheese and capers

She says: I had a cheese crepe, which was good.

The crepe was light and fluffy, and the cheese was melted nicely. I liked the cream cheese mixed with the cheese, it made the crepe very ooey-gooey good. There aren’t a lot of choices for picky old me, so I went with basic cheese. They probably would have substituted or done without an ingredient, but I didn’t feel like being a difficult patron.
He says: Very mixed on this place I had the St Louis crepe and it was very dry and had little flavor.

My father had the Paris special and that had an incredible garlic sauce that just made you hungry smelling it and satisfied the taste buds with its wonderful mixture of flavors inside and had the other two crepes we tried been like this I would of felt completely different about the meal.

That crepe was almost enough for me to forgive the bad one I had , almost but not completely so I really can’t recommend Crepes de Paris myself but I think Barb says the Dessert Crepes are great and worth a visit here just for them but we did not have one that week so I wont commit to that myself.
She Says: I had been there the week before on a girl’s night out and had the Ham & Cheese crepe and it was very good, so I didn’t want to pick the same thing again. Also, the week before I had split a Dulce de Leche crepe (caramel, powdered sugar with Chantilly cream) with my friend and I must say that the dessert crepe is the way to go over the dinner crepe. That’s what crepes are for I think, the sweet decadent flavors. And the dessert crepes will not disappoint. My recommendation would be to go to dinner elsewhere, see a movie or go shopping, then sneak away to Crepes de Paris for a sweet treat at the end of the night.

  1. I didn't know about this place. A couple of months ago, I checked w/ every French restaurant I could think of to see which were doing Bastille Day menus for www.culinary-colorado.com, but this one was totally off my radar screen. It won't be for 2010.
