Crepe Amelie happens to be just a few cartwheels away from where I work. I had been passing by this restaurant every morning, but I only got to try it a few weeks ago with my fellow foodie office mates. I liked it so much that I decided to have a quick breakfast date with ze hubby the following week when we surprisingly arrived for work earlier than the usual. (You know you’re new parents with no permanent house help when you get to cherish spontaneous dates! In case you want to know, I was back in the office after 50 minutes. That already included walking to and from Crepe Amelie! Haha!)
Every corner of Crepe Amelie is Instagram-worthy. With its interiors mostly on different shades of brown, this cozy place reminds me of an old-fashioned cabin by the lake. The dim lighting and rustic details definitely add up to the picturesque appeal of Crepe Amelie. I imagine myself spending an entire day here reading a book while eating a plate of savory crepe and sipping a cup of hot coffee!
Crepe Amelie is such an eye-candy that I can’t help but check out every nook and cranny in my hopes that I can find some inspiration for our own house! I’m seriously loving the restaurant’s “unfinished” walls paired with the most random details just like these tin cans and mason jars…
and this gigantic compass which accentuates the bare wall!
Crepe Amelie takes serving crepes to a new level. They offer both sweet and savory crepes that are perfect to be devoured all throughout the day.
When Boyet and I went to Crepe Amelie for Breakfast, we could not stop gushing our ooohhh’s and ahhhh’s over Boyet’s choice of crepe – BLT & Egg! The usual crepe is topped with tons of crispy bacon, tomatoes, lettuce, cheese, egg cooked sunny-side up, crispy bacon and more crispy bacon!!!
On our breakfast date, I opted to have the Breakfast Quesadilla. Sandwiched in a crepe are mushrooms, bell peppers, bacon bits, onions and cheese.
On one of my lunch dates with my teammates, I got to try Crepe Madame.
Crepe is topped with a generous serving of tomatoes, onions, mushrooms, cheese, slices of ham and poached egg. I loved the subtlety of the ham. It’s tasty but not overpoweringly salty. The soft and almost creamy texture of the poached egg perfectly contrasts the texture of all the other elements in this crepe. This crepe stood by its name – Ang lakas maka-MADAM e! :p
That same day, my office mates and I also shared a plate of Cheese Steak Omelette. This is part of their All-Day Breakfast menu where diners have the option to choose between crepe and toast.
This plate has all the components of a cheese steak omelette – steak, mozzarella cheese, onions and bell peppers. I loved that the meat is really tender. Don’t you hate it when you keep on spitting out rubbery meat all throughout your meal? The mozzarella cheese also went perfectly well with the sweetness of the bell peppers and caramelized onions.
Crepe Amelie serves a variety of dessert crepes. One of my teammates, Sheen, treated us to this sweet delight! I forgot the name of this beauty. (Sorry, sa sobrang sarap, literal na nakalimutan ko ang pangalan niya!)
Peanut butter is sandwiched between layers of crepe and then topped with blueberry jam. Each bite of this crepe was such a treat to my taste buds. I bet this will go well with coffee or milkshake, both of which are also being served in Crepe Amelie.
Crepe Amelie also offers sandwiches, salads and pasta dishes. I was able to try their Shrimp Aglio Olio and Basil Pesto Chicken. Both are okay, although I would still put my money on their crepes. :)
