La Petite Creperie
Strolling around in the city, you probably wouldn’t give much attention to those little stalls and buskers along busy Swanston Street. We normally don’t take the time to stop and take a look at our lovely city, but with this French creperie stall, we recommended you to pause and allow the delectable waft of freshly cooked crepes entice you and make your mouth water. Situated on Swanston Street close to Little Collins St, this extremely cute crepe stall called La Petite Creperie is bound to lure you in with its delicious aromas on a cold winter afternoon.
We dropped by La Petite Creperie with a couple of friends at the end of the day to finally try these crepes that we’ve been longing to try ever since we noticed the adorable stall in the city. From our orders, the popular favourite seemed to be the Nutella crepes. Simple, easy and so good. Two other flavours we tried were the Sugar and Butter crepe and the super tasty Salted Caramel crepe. The Sugar and Butter crepe was said to be quite good although there might have been bit too much sugar added. If you’re a fan of salted caramel, this crepe is a definite must. The edges were a little crispy and the centre was generously filled with the delicious sweet and salty flavour.
The service wasn’t too bad considering the fact that there were only two people were operating the French creperie. As a small stall, their system is quite organised – you place your order and a ticket is given to you. For the effort of those two lovely French people, waiting a little while in line for those crepes was worth it.
Prices at La Petite Creperie vary with what you order as your filling. Starting from $4.00, with basic fillings such as sugar & cinnamon or sugar & butter, to $5.00 crepes with Chestnut puree or Maple syrup and finally the $8.00 crepes which can come with some fancy additions like orange marmalade.
If you’re in the city, do yourself a favour and make sure you drop by and give La Petite Creperie a try. Great for a midday snack to keep you going for the rest of the day. Bon appetite!
