I ate at Cafe Crepe years ago & thought the sweet crepes were okay. I avoided going recently because of the reviews. But seeing as how not everyone agrees with my experiences, I thought I'd go here just cuz it was convenient & we were starving. My bf should've warned me that the downtown locations didn't have good service and had salty food as well. I would've headed to Trixi's regardless of what I wanted to do in this neighbourhood. The server said we could sit anywhere. That was great & it's very roomy. It was midday & not many customers in there. You get a view of making crepes from certain tables, but it's not a pleasant view. The counter is dirty & the cook didn't look like he knew how to make crepes. Got a cappucino which was $3.50 and so small I've never had such a small cappucino before. I'm not sure if it's cuz it's a single, but regardless, no one serves such as a small cappucino; it was the size of an espresso. It tasted okay with lots of foam. Nothing spectacular.
While waiting for our food, the server would walk by here and there, go to tables, talk to people. It looked like there was only 1 server for 4 or 5 tables. I saw 2 drinks sitting on the counter and I think the barista actually remade them cuz I saw him take the cups away & then replace them with another 2. I'm sure they had sat there for 5-10 mins with the server not coming by to pick them up. But she would stand at the counter and wait for him to pour wine... ?!?! We then noticed one crepe sitting on the counter and the server also didn't take that, which was meant for us! Then she didn't even apologize for making us wait for the food. Luckily, it wasn't cold. But it was very soggy. She said it was cuz the eggs made it soggy, but the crepe wasn't even crispy on the edges. It was like a microwaved crepe. Poorly made. I suspect that they make crepes ahead of time, cuz I saw the cook make crepes, and then put them on a tray, which had tons of crepes already in them. My bf could've gotten 1 of those cuz we weren't watching them cook the whole time. The ingredients tasted fine to me & it was a good portion. My savoury one came better, atleast harder. But the prosciutto was so salty. So were the fries. There was barely any cheese in there. It was like eating a dry crepe. Mine was completely the opposite of my bf's. Also, the chicken, though not shaved deli style (thank god), was crumbly, like they were the cut up ends of chicken butt. can't even get whole pieces? We also didn't get salt, pepper, or spoons. The server didn't ask us if we needed anything & whenever she passed by, she didn't even look at us. She also said we had to flag her if we wanted anything. Who trains these people? Go to Whet to learn how to serve! We left very irate with the service and disgusted at the food. Blame both servers, kitchen, and kitchen management for not communicating with each other to make sure food gets to customers right away.
