Creperie Du Monde is an atmospheric little cafe located right in the heart of Clapton's coolest weekend spot, Chatsworth Road. Set inside a shop front with lofty ceilings, mismatched furniture, exposed brick and a shabby chic feel, it is the perfect spot to lounge with the weekend papers and watch the world go by. On sunny days you can sit outside.
As the name suggests, savoury and sweet crepes are the signature dish here with an international flavour and focus. The owners say that the Creperie was born out of "a passion for travel and a dream to share these international flavours and recipes with our local community".
The crepes are cooked fresh on hot plates at the front of the restaurant and customers are given the choice of "white or brown" - we opted to pay 40p extra for our crepes to be made with vegan rice flour. There is also the option of buckwheat (60p extra). On the recommendation of the waiter we went for "Our Brunch Favourite" - smoked salmon with poached or scrambled eggs and asparagus with hollandaise sauce.
The crepe came beautifully presented - folded open to reveal the decadent filling and with a generous helping of hollandaise elegantly dolloped on top. Perhaps my favourite is the "Of The World" - a gastronmic feast of chorizo, red peppers, aubergine, courgette, rocket with melted camembert and mixed herbs. Absolutely delicious, if not a little too much for breakfast.
If crepes aren't your thing then there is a wide selection of plain, herbs or curry omelettes and a delicious array of Belgian waffles served with fruit, nuts or more naughty options.
Coffee served in porcelain cups and the weekend paper
Perhaps the best thing about the Creperie du Monde is the coffee - which is rich, smooth and served in porcelain tea cups. There is a selection of smoothies, teas or even alcohol, should hair of the dog be required.
