Description: 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!!!!

Hard to find at first. Tucked in back of garden shop. Worth finding. Crepes and desserts were delicious. We had savory crepe of the day. Very very good! Kids had a 3 cheese and a turkey and cheese. Chocolate chip cookies were big and tasty. Texas chocolate cake was awesome. Reminded me of my great grandma's Texas sheet cake. Good... More

Once you find the place (it's kind of hidden in the back of a nursery) you'll love it. The fact that it is hidden makes it fun as well. Walking through the farm store to get to it gives you the feeling that you're getting very fresh ingredients. The menu is unique in that I don't eat crepes all that... More

Incredible savory crepes for lunch. Charming location with the garden shop next door. Would love to go back for a dessert crepe and coffee on our next visit to Auburn.

My family enjoyed savory crepes for a late lunch on a Saturday. We each chose a different one and all were very good. Three crepe's a side of fruit, two free waters and a coke was around $25. We enjoyed browsing the connecting farmers market. The gardening shop looked interesting but we had no time to shop.

The Crepe Myrtle Cafe is one of my favorite places to go in Auburn. They have a really cute store in front of the restaurant where you can buy vegetables. It is also located behind an awesome store called Blooming Colors that is a lot of fun to look at. Crepe Myrtle Cafe has really good deserts, soups, and crepes.... More

I had always wanted to visit the Crepe Myrtle Cafe and finally got the chance. I expected real crepe dishes but these dishes were more like wraps with the crepes wrapped around the filling - in my case scrambled eggs, tomatoes and mozzarella. The food was okay but the service was disappointing as it took about 30 minutes to get... More

The two cashiers were very rude and aloof. The crepes were average but the food took way too long to come out. Service was very poor.

I ordered a crepe. It was dry and tasteless... I don't see what others rave about...Pricey too... My overall experience at the Crepe Myrtle Café was disappointing. So was my visit at the nursery next door (owned by the Crepe Myrtle Cafe's owner), where plants are way overpriced...

Unfortunately, the high-school aged employee behind the counter had no smile and an air of annoyance as we walked in a little overwhelmed and disoriented by the beauty of the place. Never a friendly smile or a welcome demeanor crossed her face. She seemed even more put out to have to explain a few menu questions to us. Not a... More
