The Crepe Escape

The Crepe Escape is a family run creperie, gelato ice cream and coffee shop. The creperie is a home-from-home with a family-friendly, relaxed environment; a place to escape your everyday routine, somewhere to take your family for a treat or a good spot for a romantic lunchtime getaway with your partner.

There will be a warm and friendly welcome offered to all. Enjoy sweet and savoury crêpes, waffles, award-winning gelato ice cream, delicious freshly made coffee, tea, milkshakes and more.

All food is freshly prepared from locally sourced ingredients, quality products from carefully chosen suppliers and is healthy, affordable and adaptable. Crepes, waffles and gallettes are the mainstay of the menu with a delicious array of toppings and fillings but you’ll be missing out if you don’t try the scrumptious Italian gelato or an epic Freak shake! (The sweetie and cake packed milkshake craze that originated in Canberra in Australia).

Delectable authentic artisan gelato ice cream made from La Gelateiria Convent Garden in London provides a healthier option than ice cream and is made from all natural ingredients without any artificial colourings. The gelato is made from a traditional Italian recipe that has been passed down through generations and has won a number of London taste awards.

The Crepe Escape proprietor Alison Jones says “As a child I spent many years travelling to France on holiday. My mother and grandmother were both French teachers and loved all things French. When in France we would frequent lovely little crêperies and enjoy savoury and sweet crepes. I enjoyed making these at home as I got older for friends and family. It has always been my passion to open a Creperie using many different influences, European, American etc. This is something I feel is different from the normal coffee shops and offers something unique. Along with that having a young son I wanted somewhere that families and children felt welcome and comfortable and where parents could feed their children in a child friendly area where food is freshly made but also fast so the little ones aren’t waiting.”

The Penarth based creperie has had an exciting first year in business and the new Cardiff Bay branch will be open Friday 7 July 2017.
