Respond to Review of CLOSED: LA Vegan Crepe
by spiceislandvegan

Review: I've been hearing about this place and saw it in fb right before they opened but it is so far away from us. We drove early from OC to LA to avoid traffic. Sure enough, the freeway was really good. The owner was really nice and gave us a great service. He was also very informative in giving us ingredients of the crepe. Everything here is vegan, he says. Amazing! We tried the Parisienne and Breakfast Crepe with tempeh and salad. Both were YUMMY and we were both satisfied with the taste. We already decided to try the dessert crepe also before we ordered the savory crepes. The savory crepe is made of buckwheat and the sweet crepe is the normal yellowish crepe kind (although no egg in this one since it is vegan). We both enjoyed our savory crepes. Then ordered the Apple Cinnamon Crepe with ice cream and split it. I think that 's the good way to do it for 2 people. Yummy also! Not to sweet but it is sweet enough with the ice cream. The food here is light and healthy. You'll feel full but the food doesn't weigh you down afterward. It is also so classy. Everything is since this is a French vegan place. I love the decor and the paint color. It is so welcoming. There is a sofa to sit for people who have all day to enjoy coffee, crepes, and sweets. We felt comfortable and welcomed in this place. The delicious dishes do not stop on crepes only. They have croissants, chocolate croissant, turnover, and other selection of decadent desserts such as Chocolate Fudge Cake, Chocolate Raspberry Sacher Torte, Carrot Cake, Tiramisu, Banana Chocolate Mille Feuille (don't ask me how to pronounce that), cupcakes, and truffles. You can eat light on crepe but continue with a latte and decadent desserts. We took home some of these desserts (hey, if you have to drive 40+ miles to get there, might as well splurge and take home something). I would not recommend to take home the crepes unless you live only 5 minutes away. The crepes are better consumed right away after they are cooked. They also provide juices and smoothies. We didn't have enough room to consume more but definitely will be back on weekends.
