With crepes originating from France the home to the renown capital Paris the city of love, what could be more romantic than sharing a crepe with your loved one.
The word crêpe is french for pancake and derived from the Latin crispus meaning “curled”. Although literally meaning pancake they are different from the thicker version more commonly known to America. The crepe is made with wheat flour or buckwheat flour and made both sweet or savory.
They originate from Brittany the northwest region of France but now have become a worldwide delight and greatly enjoyed by many. So the question is where can you take your date who loves crepes here in Montréal?

Even though tucked away on the street of Mont-Royal, at Pause & Vous you will find a very cosy and french atmosphere, you might even say you feel like you are tucked into a little bit of France. The menu is prominently buck wheat crepes that can be enjoyed with a wide array of topping for all tastes and in both breakfast and lunch combo meals for added value.

Juliette & Chocolat
Even though as indicated by the name, this place is more renown for their chocolate, with their French influence they make simple but extremely satisfying crepes. I highly recommend the buckwheat crepe with asparagus, mint and goats cheese as is just to die for! And whats great about this place is you can start with a savory crepe for the main and finish with a sweet for dessert.
