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!!!!

#1 Auburn Favorite Place To Eat

The Crepe Myrtle Café was the best part of the birthday visit and so good that we ate breakfast/brunch there two mornings in a row.

I visit the marketplace more than the cafe because of the fresh fruits and vegetables, but the cafe has delicious lunches. Prices are very reasonable.

This unusual small eatery is nestled in one of Auburn's popular commercial nurseries. Once you've turned in follow the signs around to the back. There is plenty of parking so take your time looking at all the plants they have on display, everything from azaleas to zucchini.Go into the restaurant building and go through the front section where you will...

Although they have some very unique and delicious crepes, I think their panninis, soups, and salads are even better. Because you order at a counter and the food is brought to your table, people expect it to be fast food place, but it's not. So don't go there for a quick meal. Go there to experience some good food made... More

If someone wanted to see an authentic southern place, I would take them here. While waiting for my breakfast crepe, two chickens were walking about. Even the walk to the restaurant is enjoyable and entertaining with its fresh market veggies and beautiful plants! I highly recommend, but I agree about the service being a little slow and uncaring.

This place looks like a garden center from the outside, but has a cafe inside the building area. I ordered the Savory Crepes and wife ordered a breakfast crepes. The food was fabulous and freshly made from scratch . We will definitely return the next visit to Auburn. It is must place to visit.

Service here is polite and well groomed. They at least attempted to be honest by stating before we ordered that it'd be a half hour wait before we could get our food. The atmosphere is pleasant and unique due to its location within a landscape nursery but the food was average at best and it took over an hour to... More

If you're looking for dessert crepes this is not the place. But if you want terrific savory crepes (we had ham, onion, peppers and cheese) then you have the right place. This is not a candlelit dinner. The setting is more country store. But the food is fresh, local, and delicious!

You probably wouldn't know this place existed, even if you pulled in the parking lot (which is a basically a botanical nursery), but after reading the review on TA and seeing it was nearby my hotel, I had to try it. As I said, you park and walk through the nursery, then a fresh produce shop back to the cafe.... More

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.
