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!!!!

Very nice find

In town for business, and my customer told me about this place. It was even better than it was described. The food was extremely fresh with fantastic flavors. The Caesar salad was one of the best I have had in a long time. And then we had a desert crepe, and it took lunch to even a higher... read more

Not sure where all the rave reviews are coming from. The venue is lovely and the idea of a crepe menu is a good one. The menu choices sound good. The execution is poor. I had the roasted veggie with pesto and my friend had the tomato lover. Soup is more like it as far as ALL the run off... More

We had a large party, and another large party came in right behind us. They had trouble dealing with that many people at once so service was slow and it was just as hot inside as it was outside, but even so the food was really good. Everyone agreed they deserved another try.

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. Very delicious crepes and cannot wait to go back for next visit, we will be sharing this... More

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
