You don't have to travel to France to get your crêpe on

Crêpes may have originated in France, but that doesn't mean you have to jet set across the pond to get a taste of the delicious treat. The thin pancake can be served with sweet or savoury toppings and easily enjoyed any time of the day. Here are eight of the tasiest crêpes in Vancouver.

Cafe Crêpe

Cafe Crêpe

Probably the most well-known crêpe spot in Vancouver, Cafe Crêpe has three locations in the downtown core making it easy to grab lunch, dinner or a snack on the go. If you're craving both sweet and sour, we recommend the lemon crêpe.

Provence

Provence

With their French Mediterrean-inspired cuisine, it's no surprise that Provence offers three different crêpes to choose from. Their fruit crêpes feature fresh fruit and whipped cream while their savoury seafood or chicken crêpes are très bon! In particular, Provence's seafood crêpe is packed with rich West Coast flavour and filled with salmon, shrimp and baby scallops covered in a decadent velouté sauce.
