Cream of the Crop

When it comes to cafes, Creme de la Crepe sure is the cream of the crop! With two locations in the South Bay and one in Long Beach, Creme de la Crepe offers a wide variety of both sweet and savory crepes to satisfy any palate. Not in the mood for a crepe? They also serve heary soups, fresh salads, appetizers, and traditional French items such as quiche and beef bourguignon.
Although I've been to Creme de la Crepe many times, I always seem to order the same thing: Caprese Panini and a build-your-own Strawberry and Nutella dessert crepe. Both delish! The panini is freshly grilled and filled with roma tomatoes and thick slices of mozzarella. Instead of whole basil leaves like in a traditional caprese salad, they use a basil and oil spread, which still packs in all the great herb flavor! The panini also comes with a baked cheesy, potato layered side (think scalloped potatoes, but with parmesan and asiago) that is to die for! The dessert crepe is stuffed with freshly sliced strawberries and then drizzled with warm nutella - both inside and out. The dish is garnished with freshly whipped cream - nothing out of a can here!
