Adelle's Ice Cream Creperie Opens On The Southside

Wednesday, July 6, 2016

Chattanooga now has a creperie among its culinary options, with the opening of Adelle’s Ice Cream Creperie at 400 East Main Street. Inspired by crepes typically offered in Europe, Adelle’s is filling a niche with its small but interesting menu of both sweet and savory crepes, 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 12-year-old daughter Adelle, who was also the inspiration and the creative force behind the operation. Demonstrating an early interest in food, Adelle has been preparing dinner and desserts for family and friends for some time. Indeed, it was her idea to open a small restaurant and, with strong involvement in the selection of everything from the decor to the menu, this creperie truly is Adelle's.

Although currently in operation, the official “Grand Opening” for Adelle’s Ice Cream Creperie is Saturday, during its regular hours of 7 a.m.-2 p.m. Special live music will be performed by local musicians from 10:30 a.m.-2 p.m.

Owners said, "With European flare and style, Adelle's will soon become the favorite stop for breakfast, lunch or afternoon meetings. Only the freshest, finest quality ingredients go into these made-to-order crepes. House recipes, sauces and even the ice creams at Adelle’s put a priority on quality, using almost exclusively non-processed and natural ingredients, with all meats being free of hormones and antibiotics."

There are five suggested combinations for both savory and sweet crepes, with the option of Create Your Own for both, where patrons can choose their three favorite ingredients from a tempting list. Otherwise, the menu for savory crepes include “The Crowd Pleaser” with ham, egg and Swiss cheese and a drizzle of Hollandaise, “The Roma” with turkey, tomato, pesto and Havarti cheese with special Adelle sauce, or a vegetarian option such as “Lean, Bean & Green” with sautéed mushrooms, onions, black beans and spinach, garnished with vine ripe roasted tomato, just to name a few. All savory crepes come with a fresh salad of mixed spring greens, toasted almonds and house vinaigrette or a side of fruit such as strawberries, bananas and pineapple topped with a spoonful of house strawberry jam (or other seasonal fruit).

However, savory crepes are just half of the fare. Delicious sweet crepes make the perfect ending to a meal, an afternoon snack or anytime you want a bite of something wonderful. Try getting “Nuttin' but Nutella,” “Bee's Knees” (Nutella, banana and honey), the “Miss American Pie” or the traditional English crepe “London's Calling” with just sugar and fresh lemon on your crepe, for instance. 

Specials, which are not included on the regular menu, will also be featured on a frequent basis. Locally roasted Mayfly Coffee is offered hot, as well as in cold brew.

Adelle’s Ice Cream Creperie is open Monday through Saturday, from 7 a.m.- 2.p.m. Convenient and dedicated free parking is available. More information can be found by calling 423 531-2222.
