The location provides a relaxing escape from the hustle and bustle of the mall. Ideally situated at the center, it allows weary shoppers to rest their feet and shopping bags while indulging in one of the many crepes on offer.
Natural light falling into the cafe from the malls sun roof also provides an indoor outdoor experience, and while umbrellas are available for those who prefer some shade, they may not really be necessary as the sunroof glass does a good job at blocking out the glare and intensity of the sun.
All ingredients are stored in small trays behind a glass window beside the counter, so it is easy to see the staff at work preparing the crepes. For the hygiene-conscious, you need not worry as you can see the whole kitchen in front of you without worrying about what might be going on behind closed doors.
We went for three savories and one sweet, choosing the Spinach Florentine (spinach, cheese, bechamel sauce, mushrooms and feta), Chicken Farmhouse (chicken, cheese, bechamel sauce, mushrooms), Parisian Crepe (turkey, cheese, mushrooms) and a Nutella and Banana Crepe.
All were rich and filling that took little more than 5-10 minutes to prepare. Our personal favorite was the Chicken Farmhouse as it was a little saucier than the Parisian Crepe; the Nutella and Banana also got high marks from the team. Four Crepes came in at SR95 with prices varying between SR18 and SR24 each. Our cappuccino and vanilla chai lattes went down well and were SR12 each.
So if youre looking for a quick snack, without breaking the bank, Crepe Cafe may be just what you want. We can honestly say if the smell of freshly made crepes and waffles doesnt make you hungry, we dont know what will!Read more
