Review for Adelle's Creperie: 

Inspired by crepes typically offered in Europe, Adelle’s is filling a niche with its small but interesting menu of made-to-order sweet and savory crepes, paninis, waffles and omelets, along with a line of natural ice creams, shakes, floats and sundaes. Adelle’s is located within The Granfalloon and co-owned by Carla Pritchard and her 13-year-old daughter Adelle, who was also the inspiration and the creative force behind the operation. 

Specializing in European-style crepes, Adelle’s offers a favorite stop for breakfast, lunch or meetings. House recipes, sauces and even the ice creams at Adelle’s use almost exclusively non-processed and natural ingredients, with all meats being free of hormones and antibiotics. 

Free parking is available. More information can be found at www.adellescreperie.com.
