Take a little trip to France without having to go further than Oak Cliff at Whisk Crepes Cafe. This little cafe is tucked back into the Sylvan Thirty Complex at, 1888 Sylvan Ave Ste F120, Dallas, TX. and it’s the most charming little French Cafe.
Owner Julian Eelsen is from Paris, where he learned the art of crepe making at a young age from his aunt and grandmother. After coming to the United States, Julian called places home from Dallas to Miami, before deciding to leave corporate America to pursue his passion in the culinary arts by opening Whisk Crepes Cafe in 2015.
The Crepes come in either buckwheat, great for savory Crepes, and flour, which is lovely with the sweet Crepes. We even got to spend a little time in the kitchen with Julian to get a grasp of the true art of making delicious Crepes.
For our first crepe, we tried a Chorizo crepe on buckwheat. This phenomenal crepe featured Spanish chorizo, eggs, mozzarella, queso fresco, bell peppers, onions, tomato, and a jalapeno-cilantro cream.
We decided to build our own sweet crepe on flour with Nutella, strawberries and whipped cream. Equally amazing. We strongly encourage you to try both a savory and a sweet crepe to round out your experience.
Whisk Crepes carries 5 different French ciders, imported from Normandy. The flavors marries perfectly with our sweet crepe.
There is also a nice wine list. We chose a French Rose, Minute, and a Jongieux, a French white. Both were great, and wines are half priced on Wednesdays!
We had a blast at Whisk Crepes Café, and we are confident that you will too!
