Cafe Breton is known for its crepes, coffee, and posh, French-like shop. According to Cafe Breton, “Britain” is short for Great Britain, and a “Briton” is a native of Great Britain. “Brittany” is a region of France, and a “Breton” is a native of Brittany. Thus, the name of the cafe.
I have only been at Cafe Breton twice but I am already loving this chic cafe. So far, La Creperie was my go-to crepe place but now I am adding Cafe Breton on the list. I just wished there was a nearer branch from my abode in Pasig City. Let’s hang out there..
Crepes are one of the few things where hot and cold meet to create something awesome. The crepe is hot, the filling can be cold and sometimes it is topped with ice cream which is colder. When these elements marry each other, a great dessert is made.
Everyone has gone gaga over Nutella and Cafe Breton’s Nutella Crepe (Php 113) is something to gaga as well. It’s just a thin sheet of folded crepe with nutella spread ad drizzled with powdered sugar. Simple, sweet, and heavenly.
The La Pinay (Php 168) is one of the most popular crepes from Cafe Breton. It is a crepe with mango slices as filling, topped with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, and drizzled with chocolate sauce.
The mango slices are of the right sweetness. The bitterness of the chocolate sauce is balanced out by the creaminess of the vanilla cream. Yum!!
The Blueberries and Cream (Php 228) is a crepe with two scoops of vanilla ice cream as filling. It is topped with blueberries in syrup and cream. It is also decorated with whipped cream.
The Mango Smoothie (Php 94.50) is perfect to beat the summer heat.
And so is the Chocolate Ice Cream Milk Shake (Php 110.25).
Also tried a few coffee concoctions like the Cafe Au Lait (Php 85/Php 95 for decaf). This is like iced coffee served with cold milk in ice and sugar syrup. You can adjust the sweetness according to your taste.
The Cafe Liegeois (Php 120/Php 130 for decaf) is cold espresso, coffee ice cream, whipped cream, and chocolate sauce. Liegeois is pronounced as /leej*wah/.
The Caramel Liegeois (Php 130/Php 140 for decaf) is cold espresso, caramel ice cream, whipped cream, and caramel syrup.
I loved the ice cream so much I ate it.
Eating crepes is a celebration. So next time, you’d probably hear me say, “Let’s eat crepe to that!”.
Spread some awesome..ness..
