Cafe Triskell in Long Island City, NY- Dessert Crepes Made with Organic Buckwehat That Were Yummy

It’s time for dessert! Who does the best desserts in the world? The French. Cafe Triskell in Long Island City (Astoria, Queens) offers simple dessert crepes made with organic buckwheat that satisfy the sweet tooth. Yes, buckwheat crepes that actually tasted good.


Dessert Crepe: Homemade chocolate sauce & toasted almonds. I thought this was excellent (loved the chocolate and toasted almonds. The buckwheat crepe was surprising succulent and bouncy) but was reminded that I had better in Montreal.  Outstanding organic buckwheat or not, the white flour crepes still rule.  Click here to read about my best crepe experience.

Dessert Crepe: Apricot Jam with toasted almonds.  Homemade jam… reminds me of Uncle Dany in France.

Oh yes, will return to try brunch dishes, including savory crepes.  Highly recommend it.  The Chef Phillipe Fallait means business.  🙂

La Crêpe 2Go in Montreal, Canada – It’s All in the Batter; La Crêpe 2Go à Monréal, au Canada- Tout est dans la pâte

La Crêpe 2Go in Montreal, Canada, hands down, is the best crepe place in North America for me. When I think of Montreal, I think of the crepes in La Crêpe 2Go. Why is it good? It is about the batter. It is the freshness and thinness that are found in an authentic crepe. #crêpes

La Crêpe 2Go à Montréal, au Canada, pas de questions, c’est le meilleur restaurant à crêpes dans l’Amerique du Nord pour moi. Lorsque je pense à Montréal, je pense à La Crêpe 2Go. Pourquoi est- t- il si bon? C’est la pâte. C’est la fraîcheur et la finesse qui se trouvent dans les vrai crêpes. #crêpes

As support to my claim, I drive six hours from NY to Montreal for a breakfast at La Crepe 2Go twice a year, April and October. This is my devotion to the crepes here. Well, short of going to France for crepes.

La preuve, je conduit six heures de New York à Montréal pour un petit déjeuner à la Crêpe 2Go deux fois par ans, en Avril et en Octobre. Voilà ma dévotion aux crêpes ici. Bon, à part d’aller jusque’ en France pour les crêpes.

This is the crêpe master, Vartan, with his helper. He is the proud owner of the store, prepares the batter by hand every morning and makes all the crêpes.

Voici le grand maître des crêpes, Vartan, avec son assistant. Il est le fiere propriétaire du restaurant. Chaque matin, il prépare la pâte et fait tout les crêpes.

Crêpe with spinach, egg and cheese. Nothing fancy but extremely delicious and satisfying.

Crêpe avec œufs, épinards, et fromage. Rien de extraordinaire, mais extrêmement délicieux et satisfaisant.

This is the starter: egg, ham and cheese. You can see the thin ham through the crepe. The eggs were beaten, fluffed, and somehow thinned out. This is such a contrast to the breakfast crepe I had a couple weekends ago in Mt. Kisco, NY. That crepe was fat and looked like a burrito.

Cela est la ” starter” : œufs, jambon, et fromage. Vous pouvez voir le jambon dans la crêpe. Les œufs étaient battus, bouffés, et en quelque sorte, faite plus plat. C’est une grande différence à la crêpe que j’ai mangé il y a quelque semaines à Mt. Kisco, NY. La crêpe ressemblait à un burrito.

I just love this place. Highly highly recommended it. Two thumbs up!! If you are ever in Montreal, please visit Vartan’s creperie. You will not disappointed.

J’adore ce restaurant. Je le recommend en priorité à ceux qui peuvent y aller. Si vous êtes jamais en Montréal, allez visitez la crêperie à Vartan. Vous ne le regretterez pas!
