Ranked #9 of 173 restaurants in Auburn
Cuisines: Bakery
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!!!!

When I think of red beans and rice, I think of the coastal (Mobile/New Orleans) version and this is certainly not that - I could not determine the spice that made it so unappealing but it may have been sage. We ordered two bowls and both were thrown out - they did have excellent tea but the rest of the... More

Thank you so much for letting us know about your dining experience with us. We are so sorry that neither our freshly made soup or the Carribean Coconut Cake was satisfactory for you. We have cleared up a problem with our soup recipe. Thanks to your tip, we will be checking even more closely on our cakes before they are... More

Four out of five of us selected one of their crepes for breakfast, and none of us were disappointed. Two of us had egg based crepes, made with fresh organic vegetables, and two had chicken based crepes. At our table we also had a scone, a muffin, and a fruit cup. All delicious! We were disappointed that they did not... More

This charming cafe/bakery really is tucked in to a working garden shop and nursery, and that only adds to its allure. Their blueberry scone arrived warm, slightly crisp on the outside and soft/fluffy on the inside. Divine. Ditto for the cranberry-orange muffin. All that baked goodness was followed by perfectly cooks eggs and fresh veggies cradled in thin and tasty... More

Don't fret if you have trouble finding this place. It is tucked behind a nursery and has no sign on the street. Just pull into the nursery and you will find it. Their crepes are outstanding - not in a classic french style but more in a loose wrap style. There is a lot of choice and the flavors and... More

I had passed by the Crepe Myrtle Cafe last time I was in Auburn and thought it looked like somewhere I would like to see the menu. I stopped in with my girlfriend this time and we had lunch. It was pouring down raining and we sat under an umbrella on the patio. There was a chicken that was pecking... More

This charming cafe shares a parking lot with Blooming Colors nursery. There is an opportunity to look through the nursery and garden area in addition to shopping in the semi-outdoor farmers market attached to the cafe. There is seating inside, outside, and in the farmers market itself. The food is different and very delicious. Both savory and sweet crepes are... More

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
