This cafe is tucked in a nursery called Blooming Colors. Part of the restarant houses a farmers market of locally grown vegetables, cheeses and jams. The cafe is so charming and the deserts fantastic. We were in Auburn for a swim meet and we wanted something sweet after dinner, we found the Crepe Myrtle Cafe and our sweet tooth was satisfied. We split a lemon bar on the way back to the hotel, it was decadent. We also took a slice of carrot cake and a chocolate toffee desert both were insanely good. When we left on Sunday we stopped by and got a slice of key lime pie and a crepe stuffed with strawberries, bananas and nutella both were as delicious as the deserts on Saturday. What a special place - you've got to check it out!!!!

I have been to this lovely restaurant many times. My daughter always insist that we go when I visit her at nearby Auburn University. The restaurant is set amongst a plant nursery which is very unique and nice at the same time. My favorite crepe is the steak and blue crepe which is steak and blue cheese wrapped in a... More

We came here for a late breakfast to meet friends. Cos, good atmosphere and friendly staff who could not do enough for us. Good selection of food, serve yourself coffee with different coffees and also help yourself coffee syrup. Crepes were amazing!!! Looking forward to coming back here.

Every time I eat lunch at Crepe Myrtle Cafe, I always wonder why I don't eat there more often. The vegetable crepe is delicious and a splendid way to get several servings of vegetables. Everything is super fresh as it is located in a produce market. The bakery items are appealing and exceptionally good. Ginger Purvis does a marvelous job... More

Had a bit of lunch here. The sandwiches were pretty good, but my side order of squash casserole was not memorable. They also have a bakery that looked pretty good and market roast Mama Mochas coffee.

it was an extremely long wait for our food. We were told it was an hour wait when we got there. It was overcrowded and serving was haphazard. We waited about an hour and 20 mins. When we finally got our food it was cold and not worth the wait.

If you blink you'll miss it. But don't !!! This place is tucked behind a flower nursery and is fabulous. Handmade crepes to order of all types. Every time I come to Auburn I have to stop in. My favorite is the Buffalo crepe or the Mexican crepe. But when your finished don't forget about the desert crepes.....

I LOVE the Crepe Myrtle Café. It is a must stop every time I am in Auburn. The blueberry scones are the best I have ever put in my mouth. I also dined on the Southwestern crepe and the crepes were amazing! There was no wait and I even took scones back home with me along with some yummy cookies.... More

went for lunch just last Sunday, I didn't have to wait long at all and if I had, it might have been worth it- my crepe was that good. Piping hot. (They do make them to order.) I had the Greek Chicken and it was delicious. I can be picky when it comes to anything with meat in it, but... More
