Sadly, Crepe Myrtle, the iconic garden cafe that thrived for many years in this little college town because it was unique, beautiful, welcoming, girls hangout, gathering place, independently owned, has shut its doors. In its place, the “smart” city planners of Auburn approved yet another...More

It's like eating on your favorite aunt's back porch. The food is good, if a bit eclectic. A little on the pricier side, but not too bad. An enjoyable lunch for two or three friends. Unpretentious. Basic. And you get to see some beautiful seasonal...More

This cafe may well be one of Auburn's best kept secrets! The restaurant sits hidden behind Bloomin Colors landscape and garden supply store. If you have never had a crepe then you need one right now! Nice muffins, pastries, and coffee to accompany a unique...More

Wow. Did not expect this to be such a fantastic spot. Front porch if you like it cool, back porch for the sun, live chickens puttering about because, well, just because. Tried the chicken salad crepe and fajita crepe - incredible. The southwest chicken soup...More

Crowded yet charming spot known for their crepes. Other reviewers had suggested the stuffed squash so I ordered that alongside my crepe. I’m glad I checked Trip Advisor and saw this! The squash was cheesy and different from any I’ve tried!

Quite the eclectic spot. Like a country store with a restaurant imbedded. And, a garden center, to boot! A delicious breakfast, and a unique offer. Most everything comes with a crepe. The "Mexican" crepe was delicious. Scrambled eggs, tomato, lettuce, and of course, wrapped with...More

Eating in a garden with chickens running around, strolling the walks in the garden center, shopping local farm fare - you get all this at Crepe Myrtle Cafe. It's an experience as much as a restaurant. The crepes are very good and even have desert...More

We were in the area for a wedding and sought out somewhere to have brunch before driving home. There is an abundance of seating both indoors and outdoors, the latter of which is particularly enjoyable as it is in a garden. Indoors they sell local...More

Yes, we do! We have gluten free crepes! Also, you could choose to have a crepe as a salad, too! And, while we have gluten free crepes, we do not have a way to cook the crepes on a dedicated grill so there could be wheat... More

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!!!!
