If you’re looking for an escape from the usual, the French vibes from Creperie Suzette are sure to make you feel like a tourist in your own city!
We’re loving the cute little space that is Creperie Suzette, once an antique shop in its former life, now decked out with beautiful marble tables and faux brick walls. Located just next to Harbour Rocks, on the back streets of The Rocks, it’s a little hidden but it’s bustling with a good mix of tourist and local when we visit for brunch.
The menu is simple and straight to the point. A handful of savoury galettes makes up half the menu. Sweet crepes make up the other half.
You’ll find classic flavours like chicken and ham on the menu, but the Peking Duck galette is our pick. There’s a good balance of filling which includes Peking Duck, Spring Onion, and some melted Cheddar Cheese, a squiggle of sweet Hoisin Sauce to top it off. It’s all the right flavours on a soft and crispy galette, a combination that works surprisingly well.
Prices are surprisingly affordable for the location, our Peking Duck galette being the priciest item on the menu, others setting you back around $10-15.
The sweet crepe flavours are simple, and this works well to accompany the thin, smooth crepe without being over the top. We couldn’t go past the La Fraise, a classic chocolate, strawberry and walnut combination, topped with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
You might be surprised that there only two crepe makers in the creperie, which are constantly churning out delicious crepes and galettes servicing the whole restaurant. It’s a simple and efficient set up. Most diners are in and out within half an hour so each table has multiple turnovers in the time we’re there. And we can definitely see why it’s so popular. Soft crepes, fresh ingredients, tasty flavour combinations- we love it!
