Some chefs treat crepes like tortillas, using them as roll-up sandwich wrappers. Others serve crepes as open-face affairs. I’ve even seen a chef turn a tower of crepes into a cake (called a mille crepe cake). At Savor Tacoma Creperie, which opened in downtown Tacoma yesterday, crepes were served as folded-over envelopes, warm pockets spilling thinly sliced meats, melted cheeses, saucy drizzles and fresh herbs. The crepes were exactly what I’d hoped for.

Savor is a cafe everyone should put on their must-visit list, if not because of fair pricing, then because the crepes were well tended – even on a busy opening day with a line out the door. The crepes tasted tender with a gentle bite, came with thoughtfully composed flavors and fresh herbs peppered every plate. Savory crepes were around $8-$9, with a side of dressed greens. Sweet crepes were even better deals in the $7-$8 range (see the menu below). Read more »


Opening Thursday: Savor Creperie in downtown Tacoma

Savor Creperie plans to open this Thursday. Expect a casual eatery with prices solidly under $10. The menu will list a dozen each of savory and sweet crepes, a short list of crepe scrambles and liege waffles.

A display window showed a busy kitchen inside with line cooks dressed in chef whites and toques. Staff workers were outfitted in formal attire, complete with pastel ties against white dress shirts.
