Belgian Beginnings 

Side Dishes: Mr. Crêpe opens next week

The staff is in place, construction is coming to a close, and marble countertops are about to arrive. If all goes well, Burlington will be able to welcome Mr. Crêpe to 144 Church Street on Wednesday, September 26.

What will be on the menu? Options range from standard crêpe fillings, such as strawberry-Nutella and smoked ham with cheese, to the more creative. A s’mores-style crêpe is filled with marshmallows, graham crackers and Belgian chocolate.

Native Belgian Peter Creyf’s pancakes also include a line called Super Crêpes that take diners on a world tour. Super Tagine is filled with Moroccan roasted chicken, carrots, green olives, tomatoes, fresh spinach and feta. Super Merguez consists of spicy lamb sausage with roasted bell peppers, caramelized onions, fresh spinach, basil and herbed feta. Vegetarian options include combos based on shaved fennel and mozzarella, avocado and cilantro, or even spiced pears and blue cheese.

For diners seeking something outside the realm of the wrap, Mr. Crêpe has daily soups plus an always-available Yukon Gold-potato potage. Salads and granola provide healthy alternatives — and could help eaters save room for dessert. Creyf, who also owns the Waffle Cabin chain that warms many a Vermont skier, is offering the same irresistible Belgian sugar waffles at his new restaurant.
