Pastel Creperie & Dessert House on Urbanspoon

I discovered this gem with my friend Sarit and we’ve returned since then because it’s cozy and feels like home. Located a few blocks from the Yonge and Finch area, it’s attached to a condo building (my aunt’s actually) with an intricate wooden sign that can be hard to miss if you don’t look up.

Mocha Mint LatteI’m not quite sure what the image was supposed to be but the swirls were a nice touch on the Mocha Mint Latte. I’m just able to wrap both hands around my cup so it gives you an idea of the size of the cup. It’s not too rich and more sweet with a very fragrant aroma. The mint syrup is faint but gives it a small cooling effect.

Matcha White ChocolateDuring our second visit, I wanted to try their Matcha White Chocolate because it seemed different and unique. I loved the balance between the two and one didn’t overpower the other. Plus, it came in that huge cup again :D!

Earl Grey TeaMy friend Sarit loves her Earl Grey Tea so she got it both times. The bagged tea was from Twinning so there isn’t much I can say about it since I’m not a fan of earl grey and it would be biased, sorry.

Mushroom CrepeIf you know me, you’ll know I love mushrooms so I had to get the Mushroom Crepe. This is hands down one of the best crepes I’ve had so far. The mushrooms are thinly sliced and sautéed and the crepe is somewhat thin but can hold its own. Prior to this, my favourite crepes were at Crepe Mania but this location is much closer to me and the combinations appeal to me much more. You’ll find out why if you keep reading.

Ham CrepeSarit’s Ham Crepe had thick slices of ham on top of some spinach drizzled with mayo. She loved it and the saltiness of the ham went well with the crepe.

Black Sesame CrepeTheir specialty is the Black Sesame Crepe so I had to try it. Black sesame by itself is my favourite flavour aside from cookies and cream. When you put it in one of my favourite desserts, you’ve got an amazing dish! However, you have to love sesame if you’re going to order this one; there’s a lot of it!

Nutella CrepeI plan on trying the Nutella Crepe next but my friend got to it first. The chocolate ice cream is smooth and the warm Nutella inside is great with the fluffy crepe.

This is a place I’ll be sure to come back to; it’s got great food and atmosphere. Two things you want when you’re meeting up with an old friend.
