We had absolutely delicious crepes both gluten free and not. Lots of great gluten free options. Highly recommended by someone who has struggled to find good gluten free food out in the past. Our family members without gluten issues also loved the food.More

We have worked hard to source good quality GF food. There is a lot of GF out there, but sadly so much of it is of a poor quality. We will only sell GF which is as good as our other products. As you say,...More

You can’t beat Pels for a quality cup of coffee and generous serving of homemade cake. Not a day passed during our holiday when we didn’t have a pit stop at some point welcomed by Steve, his wife and their lovely team. Their menu is...More

Went here to get a crepe and discovered they also offer Gluten free crepes which made my husband's day. Nutella Crepes to takeaway and eat with a harbour view = perfect.
