Crème de la Crêpe!

Crème de la Crêpe is a delicious place to go if you’re into French foods and most importantly, crêpes. I’ve only been to the one located in the Redondo Beach Village, and I have nothing but compliments for the place!

Both times now we’ve ordered the 12 Escargots as an appetizer. In my opinion, escargot are fairly difficult to get right, and both times, they were superb here. They also bring out some delicious french bread to start, which I am always appreciative of. One thing to note is that their dinner portions are huge! I am used to crêpes being of similar size every time I order than, but the way their dinner portions come out here is like and enormous rectangle that fills up nearly the entire plate. I order the BOLOGNAISE (ground beef, marinara sauce, grilled onions, mushrooms & swiss topped with fresh basil) that also came with a small side salad, and it was very tasty. It was like a crêpe version of a meat lasagna. Sadly, I could not finish it…

For dessert, we ordered the GOURMANDE (melted butter topped with lemon & sugar), and although light and tasty, it was nothing compared to the same one we’d ordered a week or so ago at La Petite Crêperie

All in all, the ambiance is very french at this restaurant, dress is casual, if the evening is warm enough they open up the entire front of the restaurant (in Redondo Beach), and you will have a great time with your friends & family here.
