THE SANTA CLARA
January 30, 2014
Conveniently located in various
venues around the Bay Area, Crepe-
vine is an excellent spot to grab a bite to eat at a reasonable price.
The bistro is a Bay Area favorite, a simultaneously sophisticated and inexpensive café that is truly a delightful place to eat.
The restaurant has counter service, in which you order and pay for your food first, with plenty of helpful servers and staff.
There is usually a line out the door on Sunday mornings, but it tends to move quickly and there are always plenty of seats.
You will only be sitting at your table shortly before your food comes out, freshly made with almost entirely organic and fair-trade ingredients.
Choose a table anywhere you like, but on a bright, sunny morning the outdoor patio seating is especially divine.
Crepevine offers a delicious variety of sweet and savory crepes, as well as some delectable Eggs Benedicts fondly entitled “Benedictions.”
Not to be ignored are the variety of gourmet sandwiches and salads on the lunchtime menu.
One of the restaurant’s more popular dishes is the Tuscany savory crepe, filled with chicken, mushroom, tomato, almonds, provolone, feta and pesto – a Tuscan masterpiece in a crepe.
Meals are also complimented with a side of housemade herb-roasted potatoes and a salad. The menu also offers other varieties of eggs including scrambles and omelets, as well as the more traditional carb-loaded breakfast foods like French toast and pancakes.
Any item can be custom-made, like the “Create-A-Crepe,” but in this case leaving combination choices to the professionals is best.
After all, you can’t go wrong when you order something as delicious as the Santorini crepe — a sweet concoction of walnuts, pistachios, brown sugar, coconut, cinnamon and mascarpone.
If you are not a morning person, not to worry. Crepevine serves their entire menu all day long so you can have a sweet crepe for lunch or Eggs Benedict for dinner. On Fridays and Saturdays, you can even come in until they close at midnight. After all, who doesn’t love breakfast for dinner?
Whether you visit the location in downtown San Jose, Palo Alto or one of the two spots in San Francisco, stop by Crepevine for some seriously good eats.
