Wow. Did not expect this to be such a fantastic spot. Front porch if you like it cool, back porch for the sun, live chickens puttering about because, well, just because. Tried the chicken salad crepe and fajita crepe - incredible. The southwest chicken soup...More

Crowded yet charming spot known for their crepes. Other reviewers had suggested the stuffed squash so I ordered that alongside my crepe. I’m glad I checked Trip Advisor and saw this! The squash was cheesy and different from any I’ve tried!

Quite the eclectic spot. Like a country store with a restaurant imbedded. And, a garden center, to boot! A delicious breakfast, and a unique offer. Most everything comes with a crepe. The "Mexican" crepe was delicious. Scrambled eggs, tomato, lettuce, and of course, wrapped with...More

Eating in a garden with chickens running around, strolling the walks in the garden center, shopping local farm fare - you get all this at Crepe Myrtle Cafe. It's an experience as much as a restaurant. The crepes are very good and even have desert...More

We were in the area for a wedding and sought out somewhere to have brunch before driving home. There is an abundance of seating both indoors and outdoors, the latter of which is particularly enjoyable as it is in a garden. Indoors they sell local...More

It's a fun place: open and airy with lots of local produce and jams/jellies in the shop area. The breakfast crepes are to die for as well. I had the "Special" which was a ham & cheese breakfast crepe along with a Pig-in-Blanket. Soooooo good!...More

This is a small but delightful lunch place on/off South College street. It is located as part of a local nursery and supports the local produce market, Crepe Myrtle. The servings feature very tasty crepes and pannis ! My favorite side is the grilled squash,...More

Loved this cute restaurant and shop! Local produce, jams, jellies, etc to shop while you wait for your meal. I had the chicken salad crepe—not too heavy, just fresh and light, but filling. Loved the oversized pig in a blanket with stone ground mustard as...More

If you like sweet or savory crepes, homemade baked goods, fresh local food, eclectic décor and free roaming chickens as potential meal companions... And why wouldn't you? Then this place is the place for you. A truly unique and delightful experience.

Yes, we do! We have gluten free crepes! Also, you could choose to have a crepe as a salad, too! And, while we have gluten free crepes, we do not have a way to cook the crepes on a dedicated grill so there could be wheat... More

This cafe is tucked in a nursery called Blooming Colors. Part of the restarant houses a farmers market of locally grown vegetables, cheeses and jams. The cafe is so charming and the deserts fantastic. We were in Auburn for a swim meet and we wanted something sweet after dinner, we found the Crepe Myrtle Cafe and our sweet tooth was satisfied. We split a lemon bar on the way back to the hotel, it was decadent. We also took a slice of carrot cake and a chocolate toffee desert both were insanely good. When we left on Sunday we stopped by and got a slice of key lime pie and a crepe stuffed with strawberries, bananas and nutella both were as delicious as the deserts on Saturday. What a special place - you've got to check it out!!!!
