Cafe et Crepe

374 Sainte- Catherine Street West

Montreal, QC.

Several years ago, I visited

Peddlers Restaurant

7500 Boul. Newman

La Salle, PQ.

and discovered their desert crepes that were so delicious i wrote about them on this BLOG and I soon returned there and wrote a second critique as Peddlers Revisited. Since that time, my lifestyle has changed to where I am without a car and getting there is difficult. Thus began my arduous task of finding a Creperie that could meet the challenge. My hit and miss paid off “big time” when someone told me about this jewel of a resto.

In the heart of what has become the festival area of downtown Montreal, on the ground floor of what was once a bustling garment manufacturing building, was a stand, typical of these buildings, where employees of the factories could come on their break to buy a beverage, or a snack, and at various times the operator of the stand would send a cart up to the factories with a selection of treats for sale. Times have changed and the result is the best Creperie in Montreal, bar none. The Crepes are made in the window where passersby can watch the creations. There is a terrace outside as well as a dining room inside. I have been back three times and the coffee is always hot and fresh and the staff are all super friendly. My crepe of choice is loaded with strawberries, Nutella, and whipped crème.Enjoy the meal and spread the word.
