Crepeaffaire, Islington

Over Christmas this year, my eight-year old sister asked me what the best thing about being an adult was. Without a hesitation, my answer was being able to eat ice cream whenever I want.

I also think having a Nutella, cream and ice-cream laden crepe for dinner would probably come pretty close, too.

I really like the alleyways and side streets near Angel Station – there are some great little shops and cafes tucked away, almost like a village in the centre of London.

Down one of these little streets is Crepeaffaire, a creperie with a new gluten free crepe on offer.

Their gluten free offering is made with buckwheat flour, and you can get almost the same sweet and savoury toppings as you get on the regular crepes.

My friend, a proper adult, went for the savoury option – she opted for the Le Goat Deluxe, which was filled with goat’s cheese, cheddar, onion confit, spinach, and red onion.

I, on the other hand, went full five-year old, with the ‘I’ll Have What She’s Having’: strawberries, cream, Nutella, with ice cream on the side.

The buckwheat crepe has a slightly nutty flavour to it, but is light and soft – just as a good crepe should be.

I really enjoyed my Crepeaffaire experience, and would definitely recommend it for crepe lovers!
