Crepe House Café is a lovely new place which offers the best of feeds.
You honestly will not leave feeling dissatisfied or hungry.
Located at 202 William Street Earlwood, it’s half an hour away from the CBDs.
The business owners, Christina & Harry Varetimidis are of a Greek background so you know you will be stuffed until the cows come home!
We dined courtesy of Ompty Media so got to try a whole range from their extensive menu.
We started off with some hot drinks; a hot chocolate and flat white. Both not shy of a little froth art and definitely up there in taste. The coffee is made with Toby’s, a favourite of ours.
For something a little bit more light and refreshing, we were served juices. One being apple, lemon, mint and pineapple and the other, Orange, carrot and celery. Both equally refreshing and flavourful.
We were then served the savoury items first.
Crepe number one was the Sigma. It was made from two eggs, cherry tomatoes, fetta, a fresh avocado spread and topped with a balsamic glaze. This was just divine not to mention a healthier change from what I have been eating throughout this whole week!
Next we were given an omelette with ham, cheese, mushroom and spinach – exactly all of the fillings I opt for when I create my own omelette! So this was definitely a favourite. It was accompanied with some soy linseed toast and can be found on their Specials Board.
Another dish served up to go with the savoury dishes was the fruit yoghurt. The yoghurt they use is Evia which was topped with fresh fruit and coconut, and was drizzled with honey. This was just heaven! It honesty reminded me of rice pudding – it had a sweet, vanilla bean flavour to it and worked really well with the fruit mixed in. This was definitely at the top of our list of menu items!
Crepe number two was the Atlas. This was made with chicken, fetta, mushrooms, baby spinach, shallots and special sauce. Now this was a fave among the workers and we weren’t left wondering why. It was hearty and filling, not to mention super tasty. Definitely one to go for if you’re looking for a good protein hit!
Crepe number three was the Poseidon, made up of smoked salmon, haloumi, fresh avocado, baby spinach, shallots and tomato. We had to save some room for the dessert crepes so opted to reheat this one and have it at home for dinner. Wow! It was still great after five hours. We popped it in the press and were super impressed at how good it was. It definitely shows that everything at this place is made fresh and with fresh ingredients.
We were then served some Mountain Tea to try and help digest the food. It was quite nice and went well with a squeeze of honey.
More coffee was served and we got to try the Freddo cappuccino which was beautifully served in a tall glass. The coffee is whipped up so created a lovely thick froth on top, reminiscent of an iced coffee.
We were also served a Freddo espresso which is pretty much an iced long black. Good and strong, equipping us for the rest of the afternoon.
Now onto the sweet side of the menu!
We were served the Belgian waffle which was topped with a scoop of Belgian chocolate gelato, Nutella, banana, strawberries and whipped cream. This was super light and fluffy! It just melted in your mouth and was just delicious. This should definitely be on your ‘to try’ list.
Next we were given some Athena crepes filled with Nutella, Banana and biscuit crumbs. We also left this one for when we got home and it too was just delicious when reheated. The crepes had a more crispy texture as they were put in the press but they were definitely still far better than others I’ve had during a dine-in.
The second crepe we were given was the Hera, made of ricotta, blueberries, raspberries and maple syrup. This was my favourite. I love ricotta and blueberries so to have them both in a crepe made my day. The maple syrup gave it an extra sweetness and the raspberries gave it a bit of a tang – jus the perfect combination of sweet and sour.
We also got to try the Madagascan pancakes which were topped with a scoop of vanilla bean gelato, banana, walnuts, cinnamon and maple syrup. These were just delicious. They are made with the same recipe as the waffles so you know that they too will be light and fluffy. This was also a take home and they were surprisingly still pretty good after being in the fridge for a day. The flavours of banana, walnut and cinnamon were really complimentary with the maple syrup.
Last but not least, we were given the Oreo special milkshake. I’m a big fan of Oreo McFlurries so this milkshake was a treat for me. We took it away but it was still good after half an hour so I was able to watch a live sport while sipping on the milkshake – perfect end to the afternoon!
If I haven’t convinced you with this post to go and visit Crepe House Café, I’m hoping the pictures do them some more justice!
