Elena’s french Crepes Cafe ~ Food Report ~ Oceanside

So, the other day I posted about Elena’s French Crepe Cafe opening. You can read that post here. Today I went back and tried the crepes for myself.

I ordered a savory turkey and cheese crepe with pickles and pickled onions on the side.

Turkey and Cheese Crepe.

The crepe was perfect, everything you want out of a crepe, light and pillowy. The filling is up to personal choice as to what you like. They are quite large and perfect for breakfast or a light lunch. I brought a Strawberry and sour cream crepe back to my friends Mario and Ton Ton at Banana Dang! and they concurred. They loved their crepe.

So, if you want something different for breakfast or lunch I highly recommend them.

Elena’s French Crepes Cafe ~ Oceanside

Elena’s French Crepes Cafe recently opened in downtown Oceanside at 511 Pier View Way. They are located right next to Breakfast Club Diner in the space that used to house a small gift shop.

I am so glad that they chose Oceanside. They fill a void that existed for alternative breakfast and lunch choices. Though Petite Madeline does offer a mighty fine crepe on their menu, the choice is limited to one or two varieties depending on the weekly specials.

The Cafe is run by Elena and her husband, who are just the nicest people you could meet. They had always wanted to open a cafe upon retiring and when the time came they chose to do it.

The cafe is simple and bright inside, they did a great job on a fast turn around on the old space.

The menu is straight forward, their philosophy is, do one thing, do it well and do it with passion.

They feature 5 savory crepes and 11 sweet varieties. They feature Peet’s coffee and teas.

This post is just to get the word out, I will return Thursday Morning to have a couple crepes. I have been doing this long enough that I have no doubt they will be great. Give them some love. Let me know what you think if you beat me there.
