The Village Creperie is the place to go if you’re hoping for “a unique European taste in Huntington”, or if you’re simply just craving some crepes and are in the Huntington area. This little cafe offers both sweet and savory crepes, as well as breakfast crepes – all with fancy French names such as the Parisien. On the side, they also have one or two soups of the day to choose from if you’re feeling the munchies for something warm.
Of course, this means that we needed to get both a sweet and a savory crepe to taste the full selection.
The Picasso is a sweet crepe filled with honey, walnuts, and fresh bananas with a sprinkling of powdered sugar on top. Picasso himself was probably grinning from the grave when we emptied our wallets and shelled out $6.95.
I was surprised at how thick the crepe was, having expected a thin and delicate crepe for a dessert. Though I was pretty happy with the choice of filling. Walnuts made for an interesting texture for the rest of the crepe while complimenting the other ingredients as well. It’s no wonder that baked goods like banana nut muffins are so popular. The stuff just tastes good together — ‘nanas an’ nuts that is.
Instead of getting an ‘official’ savory crepe, we made do with a breakfast crepe. A simple scrambled eggs and sausage which tallied up to $5.95.
Like the sweet crepe, our breakfast crepe was also thicker than I’d thought it’d be but when compared to the Picasso, the Picasso’s crepe was definitely more on the delicate side…as a sweet crepe should be! I don’t think it’s possible to go wrong with good old egg and sausages, but it reminded me of hot pockets almost.
All in all, the crepes weren’t half bad though the price alone would make me hesitate to think of it as a regular joint to frequent. For an occasional snack to fulfill a craving? Sure.
