If you are ever in Chester and want a treat, this is the place to go.
After a rather ghastly evening experience in a well-known fast-food ‘restaurant’, we were looking for a good breakfast. We found it at Crepeaffaire. It’s a small place in Bridge Street. It does what it says: crepes.
Mrs O. had an eggs Florentine crepe, which she says was delicious, with a very good sauce; I can vouch for this, because as always she gave me a generous sample. I had smoked salmon and cream cheese, with extra spinach. The salmon tasted like salmon; it’s surprising how often it tastes like something cold and bland. Lovely.
Miss O. was dubious about her Bananalicious crepe, with banana and melted chocolate; but we ‘helped her out’ and we thought it was a tasty indulgence; she eventually grudgingly agreed.
All were a good size, well-filled and HOT; so often food arrives luke-warm or worse.
We had good coffee (and chocolate milkshake, which was definitely a success for Miss O). The total for three came to just over £30; more expensive than the aforementioned fast-food place, but all in all it felt like good value. The service was excellent.
It is, I have subsequently discovered, a chain, with some sixteen or so branches in this country. Nonetheless, it gets the Oblique recommendation. Their website is:
(By the way, I have not attempted the circumflex accent over the -e- in crepe. I’m not sure of the keyboard shortcut and it anyway seems to be mostly ignored in English.)
