One of the many new Walt Disney World experiences that opens just in time for the resort’s 50th anniversary is La Crêperie de Paris in the newly expanded EPCOT pavilion in France. This area officially opens this week, but has been available for testing during previews for annual subscribers, DVC members and more.
Designed to be a traditional creperie inspired by the French region of Brittany, La Crêperie de Paris specializes in sweet and savory pancakes that our park reporter, Chrissy, was able to taste during a day prior to Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure.
Now, La Crêperie de Paris is unique in that it is a fast food restaurant and a table service, which means you can order a window to go there or enjoy a full meal.
The Prix Fixe menu of the new establishment has a price of $ 33.00 and includes soup or salad, a savory pancake, a sweet pancake and hard cider, or a non-alcoholic beverage. These items can also be ordered a la carte.
soup of the day
For that day, the soup was Potato Leek. It may not be the highlight of the meal and at certain times of the year it will be more appealing than others, but it was a solid way to open the meal.
The salad was surprisingly huge and came lightly dressed. The greens were fresh and worked well on a hot day.
Chrissy tried three of the Salty Cookies at a price $ 15.95 each.
Chicken with a béchamel sauce that was good but heavy on garlic.
Goat cheese with spinach and walnuts – this is Chrissy’s favorite among the savory options. A delicious mix of flavors, but not heavy feeling.
Chrissy’s least favorite of the savory ones, but still decent enough to recommend. But you knew they had to taste like ratatouille given the side walk.
These Breton-inspired pancakes are made from scratch and served very thin with a crunchy outer layer. In addition, the restaurant’s gluten-free savory cookies are made with French-imported buckwheat.
Of course, Chrissy and the team tried four of the dessert pancakes at a price $ 8.95 each. Here’s what he thought:
For this hazelnut and chocolate spread with whipped cream crepe, Chrissy added a scoop of raspberry ice cream, extra sauce and extra whipped cream for $ 2.95 each. Let’s say this will continue with your standard order in the future. One of those pancakes and a little extra $ 7 calvados would be a perfect treat for the afternoon.
Note: All dessert pancakes can be topped with homemade ice cream.
In the words of our friends who were at the pond, the banana pancake was so delicious. This pancake has a real Banana Foster vibe.
Pear, chocolate ganache and cream? A delicious combination! Again, highly recommended.
Stuffed with caramelized apples and salted caramel butter, the Pomme is simple and impressive. Don’t skip it!
Overall, Chrissy and the team can’t wait to go back when this new addition makes its official debut on October 1st. And while the savory pancakes are wonderful, the desserts are really where they are.
