I was invited by the lovely people at Brightons 'The Creperie' to try out their gluten free crepes and waffles with a friend, and on route myself and my sister couldn't contain our excitement flapping are hands like school kids.
I opted for the lemon and sugar crepe and added banana and caramel. My sister went for the waffle with strawberries and cream, with a drizzling of Nutella (both of which were very photogenic and delicious). Even though they were both made with gluten free flour, they were both soft and didn't crumble or fall apart at all, which I've found to happen when I've made them at home myself. The consistency was very much how regular crepes and waffles are which was surprising considering they were gluten free.
Instagram is full of waffles, crepes and pancakes, you know the ones, they're thick and very dense looking with mountains of toppings and cream. Basically a whole load of you stodge. The Creperie offered us thin and much more manageable ones, but still gave a satisfying hit (Currently salivating over the melted Nutella).
I was so impressed with the crepe I ordered. In a way slightly blown away as it was so similar to a regular one that I'd come to miss so much. It was quite big, had no tears in it and with a lovely light brown and slightly crispy exterior. Cooked to perfection should I say. Being a little greedy, I added the sauce and banana and took a while to eat with a few brakes, but boy was it worth it. I was very tempted to just create my own using the list of toppings available, but there were so many to choose from it would of taken me ages to decide.
If you're in Brighton and fancy trying a new place to eat, whether that be sweet or savoury, I'd highly recommend The Creperie. A wide range of combinations and very flexible to suit your likes and dislikes. The interior is lovely and comfortable with great staff who are friendly and helpful. Food came very quickly and was presented to perfection (in which I took full advantage of and now have quite a few pictures in my camera roll). It doesn't matter if your coeliac or not, these crepes and waffles are great for all. But if you have a gluten free friend or family member, they'd really appreciate being able to eat here without the hassle of asking for gluten free as this is a registered gluten free restaurant!
Have you eaten here before? Do you think you'll swing by?
