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!!!!

Much more than crepes - and they have a bike rack

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... read 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

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
