This morning I spent some time at the Los Gatos Coffee Roasting Company and saw something I hadn’t noticed before: crepes being made there.
Tanya, the cheerful employee making crepe wonders for happy customers, explained that they introduced crepes, both savory and dessert, to their menu back in January 2011.
I grabbed a menu and am certain that I will be back with my family either for breakfast or dessert (as opposed to my usual caf or decaf latte with sugar free hazlenut, my usual drink of choice). Sweet offerings or dessert crepes include dark Belgian chocolate & whipped cream on top, Nutella, Leon & Curd, Organic Honey & Mascarpone, Strawberry and other fruit enhanced crepes (blueberry, banana). Savory crepes listed are the Los Gatos Breakfast Crepe (Black Forrest ham, Gruyere cheese & scrambled egg), La Hacienda Crepe (Poblano green chilies, tomoatoes, olives, avocado, green onions, salsa and sour creme), Santa Cruz Crepe (with Salmon and baby spinach), Lox & cream chese, and Olympic Crepe (baby spinach, mushrooms, olives, tomatoes and feta).
Just typing this can make me artificially hungry!
Change can be good. This one, adding savory and dessert crepes to the Los Gatos Coffee Roasting menu, certainly qualifies.
I’ll be back.
The Los Gatos Coffee Roasting Company is located at 101 E. Main Street, near the intersection with University Avnue in beautiful, downtown Los Gatos. Tel # 408 354-3263
