Delicious Crepes at the Jersey Shore
Have you been to The Porch Crepe Cafe in Ocean Grove?
And I thought crepes were only for dessert! Boy was I mistaken.
One day during my staycation I headed to Ocean Grove. After a morning walk on the boardwalk and some time spent on the beach, I wandered through town and came across this restaurant.
Nestled inside a beautiful Victorian home with one of those to-die-for front porches, with plenty of outdoor, umbrella-covered seating on the sidewalk, The Porch Crepe Cafe has a very safe and easy way for you to walk up and order breakfast, lunch, and dessert.
The first time I went last week, it was for dessert. I had their Apple Pie crepes with cinnamon apples, caramel drizzle, walnuts and whipped cream. I fell in love with the quality of the crepe...it is light and fluffy. Soft and delicate. I have tasted many crepes around here that have disappointed me in the past because they were too thick or too crunch/hard. Not this one. This is a true French crepe.
It was so great that I couldn't get it out of my head, and went back later in the week for a lunch Pesto chicken crepe. That's what's pictured here. It was every bit as amazing and delicious to have a savory crepe as it was to have the dessert crepe!
I highly recommend this great place, just blocks away from the ocean on Maine Ave.
And may I recommend a rocking chair on the porch while you await your crepe. Have a little patience as they are made to order (OR....order in advance so that your crepe is ready when you arrive.)
