Art square café- Smoked Salmon crepe

25 Feb '17 Art SquareCafe.JPG

The meal: ***

I was in mood for a savoury crepe and went with the smoked salmon and goat cheese. The crepe was thin and airy (no filling) which made the dish light. To my surprise the goat cheese paired well with the salmon and green onion dill.

I have yet, however, to find a better creperie than ‘Pastel creperie and dessert house in North York. Check out RaspberryCream’s review of the chocolate mascarpone crepe for a sneak peak of one of their sweet crepes. If you know of a delish creperie spot in Tdot, please leave a comment

The place: ***1/2

The café is an art gallery and creperie which is unorthodox. Paintings start at the entrance and go all the way to the counter. The dining and gallery portion are well sectioned and one can enjoy the art without intruding. I recommend the Turkish tea should you ever visit.

Art Square Café & Gallery – Very Berry Crepe

Very Berry

About the meal:
We are talking about Raspberry cream here. Needless to say, #berriesarelife and with my crepe craving that day, it was naturally obvious to go with this. The “Very Berry” is a sweet crepe filled with berry mix (blue & black berry, raspberry, strawberry) and topped with vanilla ice cream. It’s topped with an organic chocolate and pistachio garnish.

Contrary to other crepe places I’ve been to/reviewed, the crepe was very light – which was a bit of a disappointment. I was also expecting fresh berries, but I think it came from a frozen mix… The ice cream on top was pretty light (ie. not very creamy). I did enjoy the crunchy and nutty pistachio finish. Overall, it was OK but not exceptional.

About the place:
This place had an interesting vibe, as it had a Gallery displaying very interesting art and painting. You walk through the gallery before you reach the cafe, which is where the seating area is. There also seemed to be a patio (didn’t explore much since it was a cold winter day!)

We got to the cafe section and sat down, waiting for someone to come and take our order – no one did. We eventually went to the counter to order and that’s when we were given a menu. Not the most welcoming at first, but once we were seated the waitress attended to us in a more friendly manner.

I would suggest this place for a date, a meet-up with a friend, or a small-group catch-up. Given the space and the fact that it’s a gallery, it’s more on the quiet end. Perhaps not too suited for young kids either.
