Review of La Crêperie de Sophie, High Street Arcade, Cardiff
So when I went to Cardiff one of my favourite things to do is looking around and exploring the vast amounts of shopping Arcades. Me and my sister were wandering down one and came across a gorgeous little eatery named La Crêperie de Sophie. I’d never seen it before and turns out it had only been open for 2 months, so we decided to go their for lunch. I had one of the gourmet savoury crepes named L’Italiennewhich was Parma Ham, Mozzarella, sundried tomatoes, pesto, spinach, which are nearly all of my favourite things in a Crêpe (and black olives which I didn’t have because I don’t like them). The Crêpe was slightly sweet and worked deliciously with the saltiness of the parma ham and the strong, deep flavours of the other ingredients. It was incredible. The lady who served us either seemed a little nervous or a bit dipsy but either way she was super cute and the service was great.
One of the best bits about the place is 1. It isn’t too expensive and I believe you get your moneys worth. And it’s even cheaper if you take away in which they fold the Crêpe into a large cone and 2. the fact they Make the Crêpe in front of you. It is such a treat to watch.
I loved this place so much, I went back the next day for a sweet Crêpe before heading to my train back home to Bournemouth. This time I chose the ‘Chocolate Banana’ Crêpe which was in-cred-i-ble. A choice between white, milk or dark chocolate (I chose dark chocolate because I looooovvvvvvee dark chocolate!) which were in chip form and sprinkled generously over a folded Crêpe, sliced banana next, a crushed up biscuit and then, when each side was folded inwards, it was placed in a cone and finished with whipping cream on top.
If you are ever in Cardiff, go here. It is cute, delicious and everything you would want for a great lunch out.
