The CrepeVine is a new dainty quick eat restaurant that’s located in Altamonte Springs, but to be honest, when I heard of this new restaurant concept I thought it would be located in Thornton Park or Park Ave.
However, I’m glad that something like CrepeVine popped up in Altamonte – it’s refreshing to have more dining options than just the typical Olive Garden and Wing House.
The interior is modern, but not intimidating.
When you walk towards the back you can see an open kitchen with a glass wall – delightful because as soon as you place your order, you can watch the staff prepare it right in front of you.
On a recent media visit, I was able to sample “The Czar”, which was a savory crepe with chicken, fresh romaine lettuce, tomatoes, creamy caesar sauce all wrapped up in thin crispy crepe. The chicken was definitely the highlight, neither smothered in seasoning nor overcooked.
It was as if I was eating a sub but without the heaviness of the bread, which is always a plus if you are trying to stay away from carbs…. or just don’t like bread.
I ended the visit on a sweet note with a decadent crepe ” The Gilberto” – a guilty pleasure with strawberries, bananas, whipped cream and Nutella all wrapped in a soft crepe that’s drizzled in chocolate syrup.
Needless to say this was a classic that could not go wrong with all the right sweetness and tartness from the syrup and the fruits.
The Crepe Vine definitely lived up to their slogan to be “Fast, Fresh, and Friendly.” I definitely enjoyed my visit and would definitely come back for a quick bite!
