Aix Café Creperie Salon

A touch of France in Melbourne - Parlez-Vous Français?

Aix Café Creperie Salon, a popular French Café in busy Centre Place is one of those tiny-perch-on-the-pavement places boasting tables just large enough for a plate, pepper grinder and a wee bowl of sugar cubes.

The raison d'etre for its popularity is the high quality of the delicious crepes - from savoury to sweet. Try an orange blossom honey crepes for breakfast or the Peking duck crepe filled with duck, cucumber, lettuce and plum sauce. Also in the menu are such yummy epicuran delights such as home made soup (great for winter) and baguettes with fillings of every imaginable variety.

Open for breakfast and lunch six days a week, you can't go past this tiny cafe for a delicious meal or snack and at a very reasonable price. With prices ranging from around $4.00 to $9.00, you'll be laughing all the way to the bank!


Today's Quote: Of all the items on the menu, soup is that which exacts the most delicate perfection and the strictest attention ~ Auguste Escoffier

Beautiful. Aix happens to be one of my favorite places in France as well. Are the owners from there? Aix is short for Aix en Provence.
