Le Petite Creperie

I thought someone was pulling my leg when they suggested I try the new creperie on Swanston St. ‘It’s near the corner of Collins!’ They said. I walked around and around in circles and finally gave up – deciding to throw my loose change into the busker’s guitar case a little down the road where a crowd was forming.

The closer I got, I had to put my glasses on – an extremely tall busker? No! it was Le Petite Creperie!

One of Melbourne’s little tubular newsagents has been transformed into this tiny batter palace by Mikel, who owns ‘Creperie Le Triskel’ on Hardware Lane. Open just shy of a week, it boasts an extensive menu (considering the size of the place) and is currently serving sweet crepes only with a view to move to savoury bites in the future.

Wave salted caramel anything in front of me and I am sold, so that was my choice at a measly $5.00. The crepe maestro ladled the silken batter onto the circular griddle and smoothed it around with a long wooden ‘scraper’. He drizzled on the home made salted caramel and within two minutes it was perfectly browned and folded up ready to go! I grabbed a handful of napkins as the punter served before me was covered in chocolate from forehead to elbow. This isn’t going to be pretty I thought but it stayed together perfectly. Choose your filling wisely. Surprisingly it wasn’t overly sweet -just right and a good snack size too. It seemed to be a hit with the kids.

Crepes range in price from $4.00 for your basic sugar and lemon/cinnamon/butter, to $8.00 for something more exotic like the ‘apple, plum, cinnamon, calvados and fire’ (I don’t know what ‘fire’ means, but I suspect it’s a ‘suzette’ type flame situation). If you are looking to satiate your sweet tooth, this is your place.

Le Petite Creperie is on the corner of Swanston and Collins St (I mean literally on the corner) and is open 7 days a week, 8am to 10.30pm
