CCDs are passe. Starbucks is overrated. Everything else is either too expensive or unwelcoming. Which is why you need a D’Crepes. Even though it makes incorrect use of the preposition “D’” in the name, it is one of the least pretentious cafes. Tucked away in a corner at Hiranandani Meadows, Thane, it’s quite a small place with a few books, a guitar, pictures from what could presumably be France and a few cosy tables. But what makes D’Crepes special is the feeling of warmth you get from the staff. And, of course, the food and beverages.
This place has a quite a quaint collection of savoury crepes. There’s one with tandoori chicken and onions, one with noodles and scrambled eggs and one with creamed spinach with garlic and corn. They’re all quite delicious, and the crepes are always light and fluffy.
The pizzas and pastas are delicious:I would thoroughly recommend the spicy portuguese sauce to go with your pasta. But I feel the need to make special mention of the chicken steak burger and the pita sanwiches. They come with wedges or fries and are good enough to take home to your mother.
This is the kind of place where you come on breezy evenings, thinking you’ll have a nack. You then order a crepe with perhaps Organic Melange tea or an Irish Frappe (Did I mention their tea bags have stiches holding them together?) You then wonder whether you should order Italian wedges or garlich cheese toast. And if you’re like me, you feel guilty for wanting a Red Velvet Cupcake or maybe even a Blueberry Cheesecake or Austrian Mudpie, and then order it anyway. Before you know it, your evening snack has turned out to be larger than your dinner, and you don’t regret it for a second.
