Crepes are a popular item on menus around the world and many places do their own version of this dish. Where can you get some quality Crepes in Sydney, you may ask? Crepe House Earlwood is the place! It is easily accessible, being only a few minutes drive from the King Georges Rd exit from the M5.
The Crepe House is doing their version of Crepes, both sweet and savoury. Their Greek style crepes are a good light meal option. This place has a great atmosphere with bright and bubbly staff, a good social space, with many groups catching over a coffee and a bite to eat. The setting is relaxed with a good mix of background music. The decor has a slight industrial feel, with tap fittings converted into lights, cement beams and exposed brick.
Not only do they make great crepes, the crepe house also accomodates coffee lovers, no matter what the weather with traditional Greek Iced Coffee called Freddo’s, a really good iced coffee, just add sugar to taste. There were also plenty of other drinks to keep you content; milkshakes, iced chocolates, thick shakes and even imported Greek iced tea Tuvunu, which was very refreshing on a hot day.
The menu showcases a vast array of crepes and waffles, both sweet and savoury. The savoury crepes were all very tasty and named after Greek gods, our favourite was the Atlas, a thin crepe filled with a generous amount of chicken, feta, mushrooms, baby spinach, shallots and laced with their delicious special sauce.
For pescaterians, there is the Poseidon of course. A good flavour combination of salmon, avocado, baby spinach shallots and tomato.
For something meaty, the king of the gods Zeus is your pick. A meatlovers crepe stuffed with mozzarella, double smoked ham, bacon, pepperoni, cabanoss, tomato, feta and BBQ sauce.
Their specials menu featured a few great omelettes, including the one we tried with ham, cheese, spinach and mushrooms if you weren’t keen on a crepe.
They can also adapt any of their crepes to suit gluten free diners.
The desserts were superb, from the start we had our eye on the waffles, topped with banana cinnamon, madagascan vanilla bean gelato, walnuts and their maple syrup and this certainly did not disappoint.
Their adaption of Greek dessert Bougasta was also a unanimous favourite. An amazing Greek custard, icing sugar and slithers of roasted almonds.
The light fluffy panckes with ricotta, fresh berries and real maple syrup was another great option as was the white chocolate, nutella caprice biscuit crepe, named after the owner Christina’s daughter Antigone.
This is top spot to visit for socialising and for a bite to eat at any time of the day. All of the menu items were delicious, the staff were also great and made for a very welcoming atmosphere. It would be impossible to leave this place not being happy and content.
