Le Petit Crepiere, Melbourne

This tiny crepe stand has popped up on the corner of Little Collins and Swanston street, Melbourne. It is shoehorned into a tiny ex-newsagent stand. There are always these lovely smells wafting down the street, a few people standing around waiting, but a lot more people just walking on by. Don’t they have *cravings*? Le Petit Creperie

Ahh, memories of Paris. Reading in the pages of an inflight magazine about a famous crepiere in the 13th arrondisment, and making the journey just to try some crepes. Little red checked curtains in the window, and having crepes for lunch as well as dessert, then browsing the markets afterwards.

Well I do (have cravings), so last time I visited Melbourne, I had to try some.

Lemon & Sugar ($5) is a classic, and deservedly so:

My Crepe

It’s served in a cute cardboard sleeve so your hands don’t get sticky. Much. The edges of the crepe stayed crisp, and you had that wonderful sweet and sour combination. Once you dug down further into the little cardboard holder the crepe got a little bit soggy.

On another day I chose the salted caramel ($5). Salting a sweet dish has the effect of bringing out the sweetness. This salted caramel was homemade, but I think the rising steam from the salted caramel made the entirety of the crepe soggy.

I have to go back and get some more lemon and sugar. Noms.
