French Crepes are similar to a pancake but they are larger, thinner, have deliciously crispy edges, yummy fillings and they are deliciously different!
Crepes come from a region of France called Brittany which is in the North West and at Maison de Crepes we are passionate about making you traditional Breton crepes.
Our savoury crepes (galettes) are made with organic buckwheat flour imported from France which gives them a truly traditional and authentic taste and look. We generally serve them with simple, delicious fillings, just as they have been doing in Brittany for centuries.
Buckwheat is a superfood – a great source of vegetable protein, high in fibre and many nutrients and our crepes are gluten free. Buckwheat is not even a grain – it is a fruit seed related to the rhubarb family and is therefore suitable for coeliacs.* Our savoury crepes are also dairy and egg free so perfect if you or those you love have allergies or intolerances, or if you interested in a clean healthy alternative to bread, pasta or wraps.
We fill our savoury crepes with whole fresh ingredients; vegetables and fruits, free range chicken and the freshest of free-range eggs, gluten free bacon and ham, delicious cheese and perfectly melted brie to name a few. Most of our crepe fillings are homemade with no additives, preservatives or added sugars.
* Please note our gluten free crepes are made using the same equipment as wheat based crepes but can be thoroughly cleaned if you tell us you are coeliac.
