I. Love. Crepes. They’re pretty fantastic, if you ask me! Sweet or savory are fine with me. Anything layered between delicious, delicate sheets of dough is just wonderful.
So after posting up some pretty negative reviews lately, I decided it was time for a change.
I needed a good review for once.
So I went to an old favorite – City Coffee House & Creperie.
Located in Clayton, MO, this place is a cute little creperie that always satisfies.
Let’s get down to business.
My friend started with a blueberry muffin.
He loved it. He said it was both soft and flavorful. I didn’t try it, because I’m not a huge fan of muffins, to be honest. I just took his word for it.
I noticed that the Creperie offered pumpkin spice lattes. I’m obsessed with all things pumpkin, so I had to order it!
Small pumpkin spice latte made with soy milk, and no whipped cream. It was creamy and delicious! I didn’t detect much in the way of pumpkin flavor, though. Oh well.
It’s crepe time! Although I’m a huge fan of sweet crepes, The City Coffee House & Creperie has such a wide variety of savory crepes that I couldn’t resist ordering one. (Although their seasonal pumpkin pie crepe did tempt me for a second!)
I went with The Shady Oak: mesquite grilled chicken, fresh spinach, marinated tomatoes, green onions, havarti cheese, and housemade honey-dijon dressing.
It was fabulous! The chicken was very well seasoned, the spinach and tomatoes were fresh, and the crepe was perfectly cooked and had a slight bite to it that I loved. The honey dijon dressing added a subtle sweetness that brought this thing to the next level! I gobbled the entire thing down. It was super filling!
My friend ordered the Sante Fe: a crepe filled with chorizo, pepperjack, avocado, tomato, cilantro, red onion, fresh spinach, and house-made rojo sauce, as well as an avocado-sour cream sauce.
Not bad! It almost tasted like lasagna. Mine was better, though.
The service was decent, I guess, but it’s hard to judge with a place like this. You walk up to the counter, place your order, then they bring it to your table. The food came out quickly, so that was a plus!
You know what time it is. Score time!
Food: 5 stars (out of five)

The crepes were kind of expensive (coming in at $7.25 a pop), but the quality of the food is worth it. I highly recommend it!
