We ordered a full size savory crepe to share, which they kindly split to two plates. The crepe had a great balance of ingredients and flavor. We really liked the texture of the crepe as well, just the right amount of chewiness. We also ordered...More

Hello! We are sorry you had such disappointing experience. While, sometimes serving style defers from one waiter to another, delays in serving food or drinks normally don't occur. We are sure of this being one time isolated mistake. As for the colorants, we use the...More

Hello Laura! The colorant used in the crepes are derived from real fruit juice and organic certified colorants. We are sad to hear that this might have caused an allergic reaction. Thank you for your input. This will allow us to train our staff to...More

The Village (Gay Village)
The rainbow pillars of Beaudry Métro Station shepherd
the way into to The Village, one of the largest hubs
for gay and lesbian culture in North America. With an
open layout and a congenial aura, the refurbished
buildings along Rue Sainte-Catherine pay a special
homage to menswear and to caffeine, with showrooms and
cafes. By morning, the antiquing gems along Amherst
Street are packed with collectors. An incredible party

Café Crêperie EnCouleur was founded on the single passion of serving the best Pancakes and Specialty Coffee in Montreal. For this purpose, we use a unique home cooking style and recipe for preparing the pancake dough, using high quality, fresh, all natural ingredients. Our coffee selection will delight you as well. Our coffee supplier carries the best coffee grains. Therefore, we use Premium Italian Coffee in every Coffee Specialty Product that we have to offer. Proudly Serving Illy Coffee The DONAIR is the staple food of the Maritimes. Originating from Halifax Nova Scotia, the delectable meal has now made its way to Montreal. Its combination of spicy meat and sweet/tart sauce is a taste that is difficult to convey to others due to its uniqueness. With the authentic recipe, we only use the freshest, high quality ingredients in our meals. Definitely worth the experience!
