Milano (Savory Crepe) – Crepevine
Grilled eggplant, mushrooms, roasted garlic, spinach and tomatoes with cheddar, mozzarella, cottage cheese and marinara for $9.50 – doesn’t that just sound amazing??! The components of the crepe complemented each other very nicely. Plus mixed greens with vinaigrette and delicious house potatoes. If you plan on getting a sweet crepe in addition to a savory crepe, which I highly recommend, then it’s best to share both, otherwise it’s much too filling!
Santorini (Sweet Crepe)
Walnuts, pistachios, brown sugar, coconut, cinnamon and mascarpone for $6.75. Truly a delightful way to end a meal. The brown sugar was especially powerful, but in a good way! Moreover, I’m usually not a fan of coconut, but the rest of the ingredients just sounded SO amazing that I decided to try this crepe anyway, and I’m glad I did because though there was definitely a hint of coconut, it wasn’t too overpowering. Not as sweet as, for example, a strawberry and nutella crepe, but still sweet enough to enjoy.
This was at the Shattuck location, but the venue on College is much bigger, with two floors. It’s one of those places where you order at the cash register first, then they bring your food to your table. Not much service after that, but the staff was nice enough to give us extra plates (without being asked) to share the crepes. Seems like it’s run by college students, though this isn’t necessarily a bad thing. However, though it wasn’t too crowded, the staff hardly came out except to deliver food. I can only imagine how much less they would provide service if it was a busy day.
