We has lunch at The Crepery our first day in Fairbanks. The restaurant has great reviews online, and it’s easy to see why. The crepes are really awesome. They are also unlike any crepes I’ve had before.
The Crepery was started by a European couple who visited Fairbanks and decided to settle there. It serves savory and dessert crepes, as well as different types of coffee drinks. The space is rather small, but we were able to grab a couple of tables which the owner was very kind to put together. The crepes, however, are toasted and folded into triangles, so that you can actually hold them and eat them without having to use silverware.
I got the prosciutto and blue fig crepe and it was extremely delicious. I might have enjoyed a little bit more fig to add additional sweetness, but that’s a minor issue. I loved every single bite. I thought, at first, that the crepe would not be large enough to satisfy my hunger – not really a problem given that they also serve dessert crepes – but I was actually pretty full at the end, though to be fair I did end up eating some of Camila’s crepe as well.
Camila got the ham & cheese crepe. I thought it was delicious, I don’t know where they source their ingredients in Alaska, but they certainly do a great job. Camila, however, felt it had too much diced ham and, indeed, it was a generous serving. She did take much of it out and enjoyed her cheese crepe.
Mika had the tomato basil crepe. She’s been into caprese lately and this crepe really hit the spot, she thought it was delicious. Mike had similar feelings about his smoked salmon crepe.
At the end we were so full that we didn’t actually try any of the sweet crepes, and while we meant to go back, we never did. We should have.
