First of all, we’re very happy that the seasonal crepe is now listed on the menu. Before, we always had to ask a Team Member about what’s new. That being said, Central Park Crepes outdoes themselves with each new crepe they add!

The vanilla pastry cream really did taste like creme brûlée with a slightly sweet taste. It has the consistency of a pudding.

There are red wine poached pears and thinly-sliced almonds nestled within the perfectly-cooked crepe.

The pears are amazing and have the perfect texture: not too soft, not too firm, just right.

They even use a torch to brûlée the sugar on top of the crepe. If you’re craving a snack that isn’t too sweet, this is it!
