Spots for sweet and savoury crêpes in Toronto

Looking for an authentic taste of Paris in the heart of Hogtown? Here are a few Toronto crêperies that offer thin crêpes stuffed with sweet and savoury fillings that’ll tantalize your taste buds.

Café Crepe

1
246 Queen St W, Toronto, ON M5V 1Z7

This chain might not be the most charming crêperie in the city, but with a roomy interior and a kitchen that’s open until 1 a.m. on Fridays and Saturdays, it’s a great spot for a late-night bite in the heart of the entertainment district. The robust menu features an incredible variety of savoury and sweet crêpe options, and customers are welcome to customize their own creations. The café also offers grilled paninis, baguette sandwiches, soups, salads and Parisian-style hot dogs served with béchamel sauce. On Thursdays, pair your crêpes with a $4 martini.

Hibiscus Cafe

2
238 Augusta Ave, Toronto, ON M5T 2L7

Among Kensington Market’s most loved veteran locales, Hibiscus Café is also one of the city’s only fully gluten-free kitchens. And while there’s also a ton of vegan options on the health-conscious menu, diners of all shapes and dietary restrictions make the trek for the café’s famed crepe menu. All sorts of sweets and savouries are on offer at the quaint, compact spot, from vegan cheddar, chutney, pecan and pear, to goat cheese tomato basil, to banana walnut, to your drool-worthy chocolate hazelnut and banana (the Nutella-like spread is made in-house!).

Cacao 70

485 Queen St W, Toronto, ON M5V 2A9

It’s simply a crepe bonanza at this dessert bar and restaurant (originally hailing from Quebec but now with two Toronto locations in the Distillery District and on Queen Street West). The brunch menu hosts savoury options like crepes stuffed with country-style ham and scrambled eggs and accented with fresh fruit and melted chocolate, as well as crepe sandwiches that are served with a green salad. If we’re talking sweet, we’re talking everything you could possibly imagine, from black and white chocolate and whipped cream, to maple syrup and butter. Yum!

Le Petit Déjeuner

4
191 King St E, Toronto, ON M5A 1J5

Crêpes are available day and night at this cozy Corktown kitchen serving a unique menu of Belgian-Canadian comfort food. Start your day with a not-so-petite breakfast crêpe stuffed with cheese, bacon, scrambled eggs and potatoes. For dinner, tuck in to the deconstructed chicken suprème crêpe served with mushrooms in a creamy green peppercorn sauce or sample the savoury seafood crêpe with mussels and shrimp in a spiced rosé sauce.

Crepes A Go Go

5
18 Yorkville Ave, Toronto, ON M4W 3Y8

You’ll find artfully prepared crêpes bursting with decadent fillings at this Parisian-style café on the edge of Toronto’s tony Yorkville neighbourhood. Service is fast and friendly (and often en français if you desire) and the quaint interior offers a welcoming respite from the hustle and bustle of Yonge and Bloor. The savoury “Popeye” crêpe is made with scrambled eggs, mozzarella and baby spinach. Or, try a classic lemon and sugar crêpe for a simple sweet treat. Seating is limited so order a handheld crêpe to take away and do some window-shopping at the nearby boutiques.

Crepe It Up

B7a 95 Front E, Toronto, ON M5E 1C2

Handmade creations are prepared right in front of you at this popular take-out counter on the lower level of Toronto’s landmark St. Lawrence Market. Favourite menu items include the savoury eggs benedict crêpe and the Hot Chick, which comes crammed with spicy pepper, egg, chicken and assorted veggies and cheese. The Asian-inspired Thai crêpe is a unique sweet offering served with condensed milk and banana.

Toronto’s frigid winter months were made for curling up with a warm mug of hot cocoa. Escape the chilly air inside these local cafés where the hot chocolate is sweet, spicy and sinfully delicious.
