Located in the heart of Cambie Village, Trixi’s Crepe and Coffehaus is filled with comfy chairs, ambient music and the wafts of freshly made crepes floating in the air. Their menu includes paninis, bagels, soup and salads as well as 35 different varieties of sweet and savoury crepes.
After some dinner and fun, we both decided to come here for some crepes and ice cream. We stumbled on to this crepes place so we went in.
Food: Lots of savoury and sweet crepes to decide. Since we found the one we wanted we opt'd for banana and nutella with a scoop of mint chocolate chip ice cream.
Service: Just a few tables full and a very small place however not cramped, the service was prety slow but forgivable since it was the owner was working.
Value: My crepe and ice cream came in under $8 since we shared the dessert together it was really worth it.
Overall: Very pleased with the crepes and the selection, maybe I will return for the savoury crepes. 7.5 out of 10
I was wandering up Cambie and decided to drop in here and try it. Crepes and gelato! Excellent idea.
The crepes were good, but not outstanding; the service was good, but not outstanding. The prices were a bit high ($8.75 for a small crepe that didn't even make a meal)--but the food was tasty. Oh, and the gelato is Mario's (from the place on 1st and Quebec), which isn't bad stuff.
It's not a bad neighbourhood place, but it's not really worth travelling halfway across town for.
My husband and I went to this place on the weekend for the first time. It was very enjoyable with a nice relaxing atmosphere. It is very small inside though. There was a good selection of meal crepes and dessert crepes. We would definietly recomend this place to others. I can't say the value was amazing but it wasn't overpriced either.
This is no Cafe Crepe. Trixie's makes delicate crepes with a unique combination of fillings, both savoury and sweet. I frequent Trixie's for weekend breakfast and always leave satisfied.
My favorite crepes are smoked salmon with dill cream cheese, and apple, brie and almond crepe. It's delish!
Service is somewhat slow, but the place is cozy and very relaxed. I'm glad it's survived the sky train development in the area. So support a local cafe and try Trixie's.
With franchised crepes places popping up everywhere, I wasn’t sure what to expect from this coffee shop. And the lack of customers, there was only one other person there, didn't leave me with high expectations. But, the atmosphere was charming, the prices were reasonable and the service was efficient, if a little prickly.
During the winter, I dropped by Trixi's for a warm crepe and a chance to read the newspaper or write in my journal. The service was second to none. The friendly staff got to know my orders and always poured my favourite (Orangina) within seconds of my arrival.
Now that summer is FINALLY here, I am loving the selection of gelatos.
My favourite crepe: ham and swiss. It's much more filling than a sandwich of the same name anywhere else.
My favourite drink: Orangina.
My favourite treat to take home: a jar of Nutella.
The poor customer service at this establishment is the reason why we will choose not to eat here again. We had poor experiences in the past but thought we would give them another couple of chances but the bad attitude was consistent each time we went so we will take our business elsewhere. There are several great restaurants on Cambie where you feel valued as a customer that we will support instead.
