WE ARE VERY SAD TO ANNOUNCE THAT WE HAVE BEEN FORCED TO CLOSE OUR ST ASAPH STREET VENUE DUE TO COVID-19.
We have fought hard and battled to overcome the issues and debts associated with this unbelievable period of time, and this very quiet part of town, but it has not been enough.
We want to thank every single person who has supported us and especially thank all our wonderful regulars (you know who you are) who have made every day a joy for the whole MDC team.
However, it is not all bad news. As many of you know we have been working on franchising the MDC brand under the trademark name of Maison de Crepe. Our first new location was due to open in Merivale at the end of the month but, everyone is working hard to get it open earlier.
Also, all our wonderful staff have been employed at this new venue so we encourage you to support it and visit us at the new site!
THE NEW MAISON DE CREPE - IS NOW OPEN!!
Located at 106 Papanui Road, Merivale opposite Selwyn House School

Maison de Crepes, The Home Of Crepes is a boutique Parisian-style Creperie.
And just like Paris is the City of Love, we at Maison de Crepes love to celebrate l’amour (love).
We do this through our love of nutritious and quality food;
our love of creating beautiful spaces for our guests;
our love of good wine and amazing bespoke coffee;
our love of friendship, family and personalised and welcoming customer service.
But we also love to make an impact on people’s lives; the lives of our staff, our guests, our local neighbourhood, our global community, and the planet.
In a world of burgers, pizza, sushi, sandwiches, muffins, pies and slices , Maison de Crepes stands out as a unique food offering. Everyone loves a good crepe and our crepes are simply
Everything is made fresh to order. Batters are made daily from scratch, lemons are hand squeezed with love and, fillings and sauces are all prepared on site using the best free-range and locally produced ingredients.
Is also unique to us - a delicious French-style coffee - mellow with no bitterness but it hits the spot with berry and chocolate tones. Designed for us by The Crafted Coffee Company - once you try it you’ll never go back to the big coffee brands! If you drink coffee at home you can now buy Maison de Crepes Boutique Coffee to make at home with either beans, espresso or French press grinds available by the bag.
Lemon & Sugar
There is something glamorous and special
about a crepe but at the same time, something warm and familiar.
Remember that feeling of eating a warm lemon and sugar crepe when you were young?
Standing in the kitchen and waiting for them as they came out of the pan, hot, syrupy and oh so easy to eat.....
Maison de Crepes is that
home from home, that warm and familiar feeling wrapped up in the romance
of a spontaneous trip to Paris.
The delicious smell of crepes and coffee as you walk in the door, the French music, the French imagery and beautiful decor -
everything makes you feel like you have escaped to Paris
- the city of love
But what if those decadent crepes were also savoury? And could be made guilt-free, gluten-free, dairy free, keto or vegan?
Well at Maison de Crepes they can be.
Nutritious, guilt free crepes, savoury or sweet, that taste indulgent and delicious. Washed down with a glass of delicious champagne, wine, Kronenburg 1664 or French Cider.
You cannot get better than that.
About Maison de Crepes
Bonjour, I am Sheena the proud owner of Maison de Crepes.
Originally from the UK I spent many of my holidays in France and I completely fell in love with the food, wine, romance and style of the country, especially the beautiful City of Paris. After moving to Christchurch in 1996 I remained a Francophile and indulged my love of French food and fashion at every opportunity.
Four years ago I fell in love with a young Frenchman from Brittany, the region of France passionate about crêpes. He missed crepes and could not understand why real Creperies were all over the world but not in New Zealand.
After much research and lots of product testing we started Maison de Crepes kiosk at The Colombo in June 2016 and in February 2017 we opened a 20 seater cafe in Carlton Courts, Merivale.
Sadly, the love affair with the Frenchman did not last but my love affair with France and crêpes did! Maison de Crepes outgrew the cafe and has now expanded! In February 2019 Maison de Crepes proudly opened our first city centre venue at The Yard, St Asaph Street, Christchurch.
Our new location can seat 60-70 people, has a gorgeous private dining area which seats 16 and is available for meetings, birthdays and group bookings. We can now do functions and events but we still have the lovely, cosy and warm ambience that we are famous for. We offer unique savoury and sweet crêpes which are a mix of traditional French recipes and unique creations from my own kitchen. Our boutique Maison de Crêpes coffee has been created for us in a French-style and we serve French waffles, wine, beer, cider and patisserie.
Open for breakfast, lunch, dinner, dessert and snacks or just for a quick takeaway coffee -
Every time is a good time for crêpes!
