Much like Sunderland Football Club naming their new stadium the Stadium of Light, Crepe Affaire's owners took a bit of a chance in naming their restaurant. A slight slip of the tongue would be unfortunate!
Crepes are lovely but occupy the strange ground between a full meal and a snack. Perhaps the solution would be to have a savoury crepe for main course and a sweet crepe for dessert if you fancy a full meal. There is a wide range of both types available
You can be guaranteed that your food will be fresh as it's cooked right in front of you. There is also a nice range of fresh smoothies, shakes and ice cream available
The service is friendly and nice enough but the crepes are pretty bland and dry. I actually found it quite difficult to finish it because of the taste. And at 4+ quid a piece, it's just not worth it. Like other readers have said, the crepes are pre-made and just heated up. It's not very fulfilling as a meal either as they are quite frugal with the fillings.
I also got a hot chocolate but it's also not much to write about. Sort of tasted like the instant kind you make with powder. The food is all right, but for the price it's really not worth it at all!
The bottom line: avoid, avoid, avoid!
Holy crepe! What a good idea for a desert shop!
This really wasn't bad...and maybe they are learning to be more generous with the fillings - there was enough chocolate to slpoodge out and make me look messy. I asked them to add strawberries to my Belgium chocolate crepe and it was a delicious combination of sweet crepe joy!
My bloke's dark chocolate banana split wasn't as good as mine...but it was still pretty yummy! I'd quite like to try a savoury version next time.
Something different amongst all the restaurants, sandwich shops, and cafes!
They do really good crepes, with a wide selection available from the menu. However, as a man, one crepe seemed a bit too little to be filling; its probably more suited to bring a date for dessert after a meal and a leisurely walk.
The chef did take his time making the crepes, but apart from the wait, its a place I would go back to again when I'm in the area.
It's a crepe Jim but not as we know it!
Ooooh how I love a crepe but when do you eat them? They're not a full blown meal but not quite a snack but they are a lovely little treat and those from Crepe Affaire fall into that category - yum!
The menu is varied - whether you choose a crepe of savoury or the sweet kind - and you can go as simple or as extravagant as you desire. I also love the names of the crepes, personally I'm a sucker for a "Londoner" - what can you say, I'm a loyal girl. ;-)
The drinks on the menu are nice and varied too, I particularly like the French Vanilia Latte.
I think this is a friendly branch of the chain and the service is efficient and polite too. Located on the vibrant and bustling Wardour Street, it's in the heart of Soho so very central and convenient.
Great little place to stop at if you're in the area and don't fancy anything too heavy.
The 'Omega 4' crepe (tuna, cheese and sweetcorn) is pretty good, as well as the Londoner (scrambled egg, cheese and bacon) both priced at under £4. They also serve loads of different types of tea (try the popcorn flavour tea it's pretty unique), and the best thing is that they sell movenpick ice cream here! At £1 a scoop you can't go wrong added to your favourite sweet crepe : )
No toilets though, but other than that a decent place to grab something to eat.
With a simple menu of savory and sweet crepes, Crepe Affaire is a great fast place to stop in for a quick breakfast, lunch, dinner or snack. There isn't much seating space, so snag a spot if you see one, then settle in to have a crepe filled with meat, eggs, veggies or something sweet. Or just take your crepe to go.
The place also sells coffee, though I haven't tried it out yet. And there's a mesmerizing crepe-making machine in the corner.
Overall: Quick, delicious food.
You'll hardly be stuck for something to eat in Soho, but if crepes are your thing, you could do a lot worse than this place.
At about £4 for most of the choices - sweet or savoury - with a little extra to eat it in, it might seem a lot for a little bit of batter, but they're filling and tasty.
The corner location with large windows and mirrored walls also provides a bright place to sit and watch the world go by.
It's quick, reasonable for what you get, a pleasant environment and a convenient place for breakfast, lunch or a tea-time treat.
I like crepes but always find that most places are a stingy with the filling and I'm left with a whole lot of crepe. Crepe Affair has a great selection of both savoury and sweet ingredients but with prices averaging around £4 I think they are slighlty overpriced. The Londoner (scrambled egg, cheese and crispy bacon) is really tasty although not always very filling. Or maybe I've just got a huge appetite.
There are a couple of these around town and counting, and people do seems to like it. It's good for a light snack and you do get a free crepe on your birthday so perhaps a good time to try to see if you like it. Homemade ones are better, and it's ok as far as crepes go. I've had savoury and sweet and I quite like fresh strawberries with apple sauce. They could be more generous with the fillings and watching the machine in the corner make crepes will entertain for about 2 mins, 5 mins if like me you've never seen it done that way before!
The Crepe Affair makes good crepes. If you're into this kind of food you will be satisfied. They cost about £4 a pop, so they are fairly expensive, but they're filling. You can't go wrong here if you want a quick and tasty bite to eat.
A nice place to come for a working lunch, fast service and good deals during the day. You can often get a hot drink thrown in with a crepe which are tasty both sweet and savoury. There's a large variety of different flavour combinations, you can go as simple as you like. You can easily eat here for under a fiver.
I love Crepes and Crepeaffaire is great if you just want a quick dessert after dinner or lunch. It's not the best Crepes place in London. The Crepes are kept warm and are not always freshly made. Anyway I am still going there sometimes. Don't expect too much.
The service is fast and helpful, and the ingredients are fresh and generous. The savory crepes that we ordered (Brazilian, Londoner, Ham and Cheese) were well balanced between crepe and filling, though the prices seemed just a bit high (£3.50-4) for the quantity of food. It's not enough for a meal, but we just wanted a light lunch in preparation for a lot of noshing at a pub crawl later in the evening, so this fit the bill. If you have kids, they also have a kid-sized crepe for about £1 less (and which actually seemed to be the same size as an adult crepe).
I'm sat in this place with a friend now. We just had a crepe and a waffle which were both divine. It might seem a little expensive but I'd say it was worth the money. They were both really well made and served in a timely manner. Good selection of coffee, too. My friend just said 'I'm stuffed!' I concur!
This place is an absolute winner! If you are a fan of crepes, savoury or sweet, you must pay a visit. I had a vegetarian crepe with cheese, tomatoes, spinach and mushrooms for only about £3. It was so delicious I had to share a banana split with my friend. Filled with bananas and chocolate of your choice and piped with cream, it was absolutely divine! They also offer a good selection of drinks. I understand that there are various branches throughout London, so keep an eye out for it. If in Wardour Street, this branch is particularly pleasant.
wanted to try something different and crepe affaire was the place. what is the difference between crepe and pancakes???hmph i seem to be more fulfilled by pancakes because of its thickness.crepes is rather a thinner alternative. with savoury and sweet choices its a place just to try once.good toppings although not very creative!good enough if you want a quick lunch
i had a icecream and a coffee, i would recommend, very nice indeed.
Friendly staff. Can recommend the camembert and cranberries crepe.
