The owner of Gypsea Crepes is one of our local surfers, so the way he decorated this quaint space gives it a happy island vibe. The colors of the interior add to the flavors, matching the bright, fresh flavors with bright, cheerful colors.
Located between the Thomas Curve and Club La Vela, this spot is quickly gathering a following. There have been a few crepe spots over the last few years, but they never caught on this way. Gypsea Crepes is right next door to Marcus’ Gulf Pizza and Delivery, so parking is hard to find. It is right on Thomas Drive, so you cannot park on the street, but you may be able to use the nearby Waffle House parking lot or around back.
The inside appearance takes after every surf inspired location with bright colors and surfing gear. It is a cozy, happy spot with a large open window and Reggae softly playing. There is seating for about 20 people, so you may feel want to get your order to go if you all of the seats are full. Otherwise, you may feel like staying and enjoying the atmosphere.
This place is kept clean. You can watch them prepare your crepes right in front of you and see the process as it comes along. The view into the kitchen shows how clean it is kept, so rest easy.
The menu has traditional sweet styled crepes, as well as new styled sweet crepe ingredients and combinations. But the biggest surprise is the savory crepes. The savory crepes are basically fresh sandwich wraps with healthy ingredients. They have the best combinations available and new ones coming all the time. Choosing which crepe you are going to eat is the hardest part of the visit, they all look so good! There are also chips and drinks available to fill out your order.
The prices are good. Most crepes are between $6-10, but you can add-on or substitute ingredients at different costs. One crepe is large enough to get you full, but they are so good you may be tempted to eat a second.
The quality of the food is great. Each ingredient is noticeably fresh. The combinations have great flavors and complimentary sauces. Each crepe is consistently cooked just right.
The food presentation is interesting- not in a bad way. The crepes are rolled into an ice cream cone shape, wrapped in paper, and put into holders that keep them upright. Eating them is just like eating an ice cream cone that you have to tear the paper as you eat. This makes it feel very unique.
Service is friendly but it can take a few minutes to get your order in at times. Only one person is usually working so you order at the window to the kitchen and can watch as one person makes your food one crepe at a time. All in all the service is fast and friendly.
