Specializing in all kinds of crepes, the traditional French recipe has slightly been modified to the delight of its patrons. Exotic flavours such as Thai Chicken, Peking Duck, etc.
I had to leave the city on Valentine's for work. I wanted my wife to have a special meal but wasn't sure what to get her. I decided that I could get her take out from Doux Crepes and then she could eat it there if she wanted or take it home. (I didn't think she'd want to sit alone in a restaurant on Valentine's Day) The owner was there when I went in to arrange it and he was very accommodating. I ordered asparagus and mushroom risotto, a french kiss crepe for desert and a latte. She was thrilled and said the meal was excellent. I had the risotto previously and knew that it was amazing. Thanks to Doux Crepes for helping to create a great Valentine's Day for my wife...happy wife, happy life :-)
I live in Yaletown and yet never knew about this place until very recently stumbling upon it. I stopped in for a morning bite to eat and a coffee and was quite pleasantly surprised. I ordered the ham and cheese crepe and was not disappointed, solid comfort food on a weekend morning. Fresh ingredients, speedy service, and most importantly a delicious meal!
I've had better cappucinos, but I did enjoy the laid back atmosphere. The crowd there was very friendly. I think because the restaurant is totally off the beaten path - it seems to be most frequented by local residents. It looks like they are still in progress on some remodelling, but with a little more work this place can only get better!
If you go to see their site don't be fooled by it...
- porcelain plate - colored paper plate
- stainless steel cutlery - plastic fork and knife
- GOURMET CREPES - loads of black pepper (I never heard of it in crepes)
- hip and modern atmosphere - it just stinks!
When you order you get a number which is piece of hand cut cardboard stuck into the bottom of a plastic cup. I mean don't you have a couple of dollars to by some normal number. Reservation sign was a disposable plastic bowl with a handwritten inscription "Reserved".
Well in a few words, I guess this place is for people who never been to Europe but want to feel European atmosphere. They may not want to visit Europe after this experience. Don't worry (and don't be fooled) - Europe is different.
