One of the areas opening up during Disney’s 50th anniversary celebration on October 1 is the newly expanded France Pavilion. And one part of that is La Creperie de Paris.
Because who doesn’t want crepes?
La Creperie de Paris Information
As I mentioned, La Creperie de Paris is located in the France Pavilion at Epcot. This located in the new France Pavilion expansion which was created to house Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure. Remy’s is a new ride generating a fair amount of buzz.
Both the restaurant and the ride open up on October 1.
Unlike most other restaurants at Disney World, La Creperie de Paris is a hybrid table and quick service restaurant.
The table service end of the restaurant offers a daily prix fixe menu that includes a choice of soup or salad, a savory galette, a dessert crepe, and a glass of hard cider, soda, or juice.
What was unclear is whether you HAVE to order from a prix fixe menu, or whether you can order traditionally as well. Reading between the lines, my interpretation is that you could do either.
So if you simply want to try all the savory galettes (I’m over here raising my hand), hopefully you can just buy all the savory galettes. I’m hoping this is the case and will confirm once I know for sure.
For now, there are no reservations required in order to dine at the table service restaurant. Guests are seated on a first come, first served basis.
The quick service portion of the restaurant is offered through an order window on the outside of the building. The order window is called Crepes A Emporter at La Creperie de Paris.
Disney describes the interior of the restaurant as evocative of the Brittany region of France, with a Parisian twist.
They mention stone walls and blue glass windows. Cast members are decked out in costumes inspired by traditional creperies, including striped shirts and the red hat, known as a miki. This hat is traditional to Brittany’s fishermen.
La Creperie de Paris Menu
The table service menu is designed around the traditional flavors of the Brittany region of France. As the name clearly suggests, the restaurant is a traditional creperie.
All of the food is made from scratch, and to order.
Overall, the menu consists of sweet dessert crepes, savory galattes, and some of Brittany’s famous hard ciders.
Savory Galettes at La Creperie de Paris
- Classique: ham, egg, Swiss cheese
- Poulet: chicken, bechamel cheese sauce, mushrooms
- Chevre: goat cheese, spinach, walnuts
- Saumon: smoked salmon, creme fraiche, chives, lemon
- Ratatouille: tomato, zucchini, eggplant
- Savoyarde: Raclette cheese, onions, imported Bayonne ham
Here’s the part where I got an education on traditional galettes. Because I knew nothing about them other than the fact that they look delicious.
Galettes are made with a thin pastry cooked at a high temperature. This allows the outside to become very crispy and crunchy.
This folds around a variety of savory fillings.
And guess what? The galettes are naturally gluten friendly! I can’t begin to describe how excited I am about this.
They are made with buckwheat imported exclusively from France and feature classic fillings.
Sweet Crepes at La Creperie de Paris
- Gourmande: hazelnut chocolate spread, whipped cream
- Banane: banana, caramel beurre sale
- Melba: peach, red berries sauce, almonds
- Poire: pear, chocolate ganache, whipped cream
- Pomme: caramelized apples, caramel beurre sale
These are more like the traditional crepes that everyone knows and loves. There is also an option to top the sweet crepes with house made ice cream.
Crepes A Emporter at La Creperie de Paris
That’s a mouthful of a name, but Crepes A Emporter at La Creperie de Paris is the quick service window.
Unfortunately for all of us, the walk-up window only offers a limited menu compared to the table service restaurant. I mean, it makes sense, but it’s a bummer.
At least this provides an option if you’re unable to get a table inside.
Crepes A Emporter serves three savory galettes, four sweet crepes, soft serve ice cream, and an assortment of ciders and wines.
Savory Galettes at Crepes A Emporter
- Cream of Brie Cheese Galette
- Ratatouille Galette: tomato, zucchini, eggplant
- Bechamel, Cheese, & Ham Galette
Sweet Crepes at Crepes A Emporter
- Butter & Sugar Crepe
- Hazelnut & Chocolate Spread Crepe
- Red Berries Crepe
- Vanilla or Chocolate Ice Cream Crepe
My Thoughts So Far
Listen, I’m a sucker for crepes. Any type of crepe. My husband and kids are in total agreement with me on that one. Clearly, my family is looking forward to La Creperie.
While I’m not happy that the quick service menu is so minimal, I’m at least happy that it’s an option. I just wish you could order more of the flavors to be found inside.
All in all, I’m extremely excited to give this a try when I’m there on opening weekend. I at least know I can eat the galettes since they are gluten friendly.
I don’t know yet whether you can get the sweet crepes as a gluten friendly option. Frankly, I’d take a sweet crepe with the buckwheat flour shell.
I promise to keep you all updated as soon as I know more.
Are you as excited for a crepe restaurant as I am? Or are you underwhelmed by this offering? Let me know in the comments below.
