The crepes at Crepeaffaire always look so yummy, but they’re not vegan, so not that yummy after all. Until a while ago, when I was in White City Westfield, I saw a sign with buckwheat crêpes and in little letters (I would really make them a bit bigger) that they’re also vegan. Yay! They’re also gluten-free btw, what is just great. That time I just had lunch, but the next time I visited Westfield, I was sure to try them. So they have a menu where you can choose from. Sweet and savoury. They only thing is that basically everything has something non vegan (cream, butter, chocolate..). If they offer vegan crepes, they should offer a few options of vegan fillings. It’s not that hard and it’ll be so much more attractive for people on a plant-based diet.
They are happy for you to customise your own filling, though it wasn’t going all smoothly. I ordered one with banana, strawberries and cinnamon. You get a buzzer with you, so you can find a place to sit. When it’s ready, the buzzer will go and then you can collect your crepe. It isn’t very busy and so it was ready quite quickly. They asked if I wanted some icing sugar on top and showed me where you can get cutlery. It looked tasty and it smelled really nice. So I was excited for my first bite. It was delicious. Not mind blowing, but it was very tasty. I really like the combination with fresh fruit and the hint of cinnamon. It wasn’t very filling though, so it’s more like a big (naughty) snack. What is very nice, is that so many places, even Crepeaffaire offers something plant-based! There are quite a few Crepeaffaires around London, but I went to the one in Westfield (White City). Go find your nearest one!

Did you already know that Crepeaffaire does a vegan option? Are you going to try a crepe now? Please let me know when you’ve tried it and what you chose as a filling (sweet of savoury?)!
