Best Crepes - 2012
The Crepe Bar
Tempe diners (and the rest of us) should thank their lucky stars that Jeff Kraus, the man behind ++Experience++ and the currently defunct Truckin' Good Food truck is putting his innovative spin on French cuisine in the form of crepes — those luscious thin pancakes with various toppings or fillings — at this strip-mall eatery on the northwest corner of Elliot and Rural roads. Done differently (and deliciously), Kraus' stellar sweet and savory crepe creations, made with locally and regionally sourced ingredients, are featured on a small, daily changing menu along with a few sides as well as coffee and tea selections. We especially like the artfully plated sweet crepe with vanilla custard, strawberries, and caramel; and the crepe version of the breakfast burrito packed with egg, bacon, queso, and a delectable avocado salsa. Getting our crepe on never tasted so good.
