“Heavenly Crepes!”
Reviewed March 13, 2013

David Price, the owner of "Callao" and a well-known TV personality in State College, envisioned his restaurant to be a neighborhood meeting place, and after our first visit I would say he succeeded.
"Callao" is located in a small strip mall and sits very close to a number of apartment complexes that cater mainly to students. The cafe is small and cozy and it also has a little patio for al fresco dining.
The menu features casual dining options like soups from the famous Harrison's, wraps, pastries, sandwiches, and gourmet coffees and other specialty drinks. The real reason to go there though is to sample the crepes. They have a total of 30 different choices on the menu (breakfast and lunch), but why stop there? You can have your favorite wrap fillings on a crepe, too!
BTW - those crepes are made from scratch, unlike some of those outdoor fairs offerings. My first try was #34 (The One Without a Name), and it certainly deserves a name because it was excellent. My son really liked #37 (Magdalena). I am not sure if I ever make it to the Nutella and bacon crepe, but I plan to come back for some of the other less "exotic" choices.
