The Crepe Cafe is an international fast casual food chain. Their branch in Riyadh Gallery is so popular they had to occupy the other side of the mall garden to accommodate their guests. Their location in Riyadh Gallery is lovely. It’s an oasis in the middle of a bustling mall but I prefer going to the recently-opened branch in Thalateen Street. It’s a partly hidden from the busy world, quiet, and has free wifi.
As its name suggests, The Crepe Cafe boasts of freshly-made crepes filled with a variety of sweet and savory ingredients. You can even watch them make it. I prefer the sweet crepes over the savory so I always end up ordering the banana caramel crepe. The crepe is delicate but the drizzle of caramel is strong in its sugary content. The pieces of bananas and sprinkle of chopped nuts balance it. My friends tried the philly steak and it was a surprise hit. Even the salmon and spinach omelet that I tried was okay; it was a match to the bread slices that came with it. I just wish it was hotter. Their berry waffles were okay; nothing to write home about. It was also a little bit sweet for our taste. The strawberries and blueberries that came with it were refreshing though. The sweet crepes go well with their coffee concoctions, which are special on their own. Their coffee blends are rich; a tempting caffeine fix every time.
If you’re not craving for heavy meals and is just looking to relax and refresh yourself from all that shopping, be it in Riyadh Gallery’s maze of branded stores or Thalateen Street’s mix of eclectic shops, The Crepe Cafe is your oasis. Its food and drinks offerings are light yet satisfying. Very affordable too!The Crepe Cafe,
