Divine Chocolate Hazelnut Spread - Edit

A Thing for Chocolate is the perfect brunch spot for both vegans and non-vegans. They have separate vegan menu and I’m pretty sure their vegan crepes are also gluten free. I had their house special with chocolate hazelnut spread stuffed with fruit. It’s a small place so it might be worth making a reservation at a busy time. Once you decide on what you want you go up to the cash to order.

Pros: lots of vegan options , reasonably priced , both sweet and savoury crepes

Excellent creperie with vegan menu! - Edit

My friends and I had brunch here and I ordered one savoury and one sweet crepe off of their vegan menu. It was great to have so many options - something that is rare at non vegan cafes and restaurants. I chose a spicy sausage, mushroom and daiya cheese crepe as well as the house special which was seasonal fruit (strawberries and banana) with chocolate sauce. Both were made with buckwheat flour as are all their vegan crepes and they tasted amazing! I also ordered a soy mocha latte which was delicious although it was definitely chocolate overload for me by the time I’d eaten my sweet crepe as well! Overall awesome experience!

Pros: Friendly staff, Vegan menu, Meat/dairy substitutes

great vegan options - Edit

Small cafe/creperie that is very accommodating for vegans. There's about 4 or 5 vegan savoury crepes and the same number of sweet crepes that can be veganized (the savoury ones are in a separate section and the sweet ones that can be made vegan have a V in brackets beside them and are an extra $2). I had the Philly Cheesesteak crepe and Au Sucre one for dessert, next time I would probably get the dessert crepe with the homemade vegan Nutella. They can also do vegan specialty coffees and hot chocolates!

A really nice place to go for brunch, and open weekday mornings which works better for my schedule than just weekends.

Pros: very vegan friendly, friendly service

Cons: limited seating available

Yummy! - Edit

I dropped in late on a Friday night (only open until 8 and we got there a bit after 7). Great vegan quotes on the walls (nicely framed). The menu is undergoing changes, but the vegan options hadn't been listed. I tried the savoury mushroom spinach on a buckwheat crepe (all the vegan options at this time are on buckwheat, and possibly all crepes are the traditional buckwheat recipe). I asked for it without the daiya cheese, because although it is tasty, I'm not a fan of it, so the owner substituted a small amount of oil and balsamic vinegar. It was a delightful crepe, I was very pleased. The next crepe I tasted (since I shared with a friend) was the thyme and tomatoe. It was tasty, but I found the thyme mixture (zatar for anyone who is familiar with it) a little too intense for my ideal. But, I was delighted with the house special crepe with the vegan chocolate sauce. Blackberries, strawberries, bananas with ample chocolate sauce. I was also very happy to find a great vegan hot chocolate - made with choice of almond or soy. Two thumbs up, I will be back very, very soon!
The bill for the two of us was about $40 including tip. And we stayed until at least 8:30pm (a full half-hour after closing time, and there were a few other stragglers there also). There was no pressure to get us out the door fast. The service was nice, the people kind. They have vegan chick'n if you want any dish done with chick'n instead of chicken, and the restaurant is shortly going to change his pesto to be vegan!

Pros: great vegan hot chocolate, traditional buckwheat crepes, service/price/quality are great value

Cons: thyme crepe was flavor intense
