This homey cafe in Bucks County, Pennsylvania specializes in sweet and savory crepes, espresso-based beverages, and irresistible desserts.
"You know what we need in the Lehigh Valley?"
"A crepe place. I mean, how fun would it be to grab coffee and crepes on the weekend?"
"Hmm... You're right, that does sound good."
I remember having that conversation with Stephen a few years ago. We were sitting in the car at a red light and talking about the types of restaurants we'd like to see open in the area.
The eerie thing is, a handful of creperies did open after I put the suggestion out into the cosmos. (Like this one and this one.) And grabbing coffee and crepes on Sunday morning became a favorite weekend tradition. A tradition we were able to keep up even after Caroline was born.
We love our local restaurant scene. But I do think it's fun to venture outside the area every now and then. That's why, when I received an email invitation to try the food at Délice Café in Feasterville-Trevose, I accepted right away.
So Stephen and I packed Caroline into the car and turned the outing into family affair. Of course, we timed it so we'd be eating right around her usual lunchtime. And so we'd be back in the car by the time she needed to go down for her nap.
My how times have changed!
If we hadn't been looking extra hard for the restaurant, then I think we might have driven by it. It's on the end of a row of businesses on a super busy stretch of Bustleton Pike and almost blends right into the landscape. Now that we've had a chance to eat there, I'd say that Délice Café is a hidden gem.
When we walked in, it was as if we stepped through a secret portal and into a world that was more relaxed and calm. The restaurant's chill vibe washed over us and we felt at home in an instant.
Because Délice Café is a casual place, you review the menu and order at the counter. If you're lucky, then you can watch as the chef makes crepes for other customers when you place your order.
As we waited for our food to arrive, Stephen and I grabbed a table and admired the cafe's design and decor. The blend of industrial and rustic reflected the kind of decor I'd like to have in our home one day. So much so that I made mental notes about how they softened the space despite the accents of metal and wood.
Despite the wide selection of crepes, we both ordered from the Breakfast section of the menu. I went with "The American" ($7.95) because it featured a filling of bacon, egg, and cheese.
And, I'm so glad I did. Their crepe version of the classic breakfast sandwich did not disappoint.
Once Caroline had a taste of it, she was hooked!
Stephen surprised me by ordering something uncharacteristic of his usual brunch choices. This time, he picked one of the savory Breakfast crepes -- the "All Italian" ($7.95). This crepe had balanced layers of sausage, egg, cheese, and red and green bell peppers. Another tasty choice!
Both of our crepes were satisfying without any heaviness. You got a taste of everything with each bite.
We were going to stop there. But then we started talking to Oleg Voyevoda, who owns the restaurant with his wife Zhanna and business partner Vitaliy Velenchuk. Oleg convinced us that we couldn't leave without trying one of their sweet crepes.
So... we did. :)
After taking a quick poll, Stephen and decided to split the "Sunday Crepe" ($7.95). It was filled with fresh strawberries, bananas, and a generous layer of Nutella.
It only took one bite to understand why it's a popular choice among their customers!
Plus, it was fun to see how fixated Caroline was on the crepe when it came to the table. Must have been the whipped cream and drizzle of berry glaze that drew her in. ;-)
But when we finally decided we were full and had to head home, a sadness washed over me.
Délice Café isn't in the Lehigh Valley, and I didn't know when we'd be able to return for another round of crepes.
I guess we'll just have to make brunch dates with family members and friends who live in Bucks County so we can get our fix!
