Description: We serve delicious, fresh: savoury and sweet crepes, paninis, salads, house-made baked goods and soups including our fabulous chocolate mousse, a wide selection of coffees brewed from our bold, rich coffee from del Rio Coco, San Juan Nicaragua. We are also fully licensed. Every Tuesday night we host an Acoustic Jam Circle - come take part, sing, play or just listen while enjoying a coffee and refreshment. The last Friday of each month we have our Spoken Word, where you can read something you've written or sing or tell a story. Sometimes we break out and start dancing later on. Great times good music. The first Monday of each month we display new artwork from one of our local artists and we have an art show on the Thursday evening. Art is for sale. We love to encourage local talent so come in and talk to us about what you do. On the weekends, weather permitting - from late spring to fall, Floriane or Laurence will take you for a peaceful carriage ride with their Clydesdale, Austin. He knows his route well and loves special treats like apples and mango sorbet on a hot day! The Cafe Creperie is homey, cozy and fun and will soon become a place to feel right at home just popping in for a chat and a good coffee. You will never tire of the delicious crepes!

Great crepes and service. The food, although a little pricey, is well worth it. A great selection of crepes, certainly the best in the surrounding region. The owner treats his customers with respect and in an entertaining fashion. This place certainly adds to that eclectic Elora experience. Definitely a must stop at attraction when visiting Elora. Ask for Jacques.

This was one experience I will never forget. The staff were so friendly and accommodating, the atmosphere really suite the French vibe and the crêpes. I got to practice my French which was a bonus.

You have your choice of savory or sweet crepes. I split a Tuscan crepe with ham, cheese, red onions, mushrooms and basil pesto with my sister. My folks split one too but wil tomato pesto.

as in France, Elora is not in a hurry. 33 minutes from order to meal arrival is a perfect length of time to enjoy an aperitif and absorb the ambience of an authentic french creperie in the heart of Wellington county. An do don't eat pineapple on pizza

We loved your review...thanks! It's true, Elora is a place to unwind, relax and enjoy the beauty. The "pineapple on the pizza" reference was amusing.(It took a moment before we realized your reference to another review :) Again, thank you so much for your appreciation and for letting others know about us! We look forward to seeing you again. More

4 visits. Last three very bad. Manager is rude, and never admits that anything is her fault, or the staff's fault. Last crepe leathery. After a 40 minute wait. Manager posts numerous justifications of all behaviours and complaints-- shifting fault onto the customer. By the way " a busy time" for this restaurant is 3 tables.. Never again.

While I understand the preparation of a worthy meal does take time, a crepe should not take 30 minutes to prepare. That aside, the food was very enjoyable. When we entered this quaint little establishment there were a number of open tables so we didn't expect the preparation time to be as long as it was. The food is well... More

It’s a creperie so don’t get too excited. We’re not talking Michelin stars here. Unless you don’t get out much, the fillings are not that exciting. On the other hand, If you think pineapple is adventurous on a pizza you will love this place. From the time we placed our order to the time it was apologetically delivered to our... More

Dropped in for lunch and was pleasantly surprised. The crepes were awesome, with many fillings to choose from and the warm beverages were equally delicious. The ambiance meanwhile is marvelous- highly recommended.

Pathetic, we have tried to eat here twice. They say they are open on the door, but decide to close early on a sunny Sunday afternoon because they had busy day and are tired.
