Les Crepes Joyeuses for Your Crepe Cravings

As part of my Ilonggo heritage, I normally crave something sweet for breakfast. Having lived on a tapsilog, cornsilog, and McDo Chicken Fillet breakfast for the past six months, I make sure my breakfast is always something I enjoy fully. So when a huge craving for crepes came, I was only excited to finally try out the new cafe in Bacolod that served nothing but French crepes and coffee. Without any information online (yet), imagine my surprise when I discovered the establishment opened at 10:00 am. Since I normally wake up around 6 or 7 am, I had to wait until the cafe finally opened. Unfortunately, I had to visit another day.

Les Crepes Joyeuses is one of the new cafes in the city. Having only been open for a few months, the cafe has replaced the former location of Humo (which also moved to Robinsons' Citywalk). My first visit was with my sister and brother-in-law for our afternoon merienda on a slow Thursday.

Expecting they would be like Cebu's La Creperie Paris (will blog about it next time), I was a bit disappointed to discover they only offer dessert crepes and no options for galettes or savory crepes. Don't get me wrong, I like dessert crepes as well but for a full-sized cafe to only offer this... I found it a bit sad. I was already looking forward to trying a new savory crepe dish; much like the one I had in Makati's Cafe Breton. In my book, they are still the best spot to offer crepes. My ultimate favorite is their Galette Don Quixote, a delicious blend of ground chorizo, onion, tomatoes, cream, and mozarella cheese tucked in a light crepe bed. Mmmm...



With only dessert crepes to choose from, I believe the best time to visit Les Crepes Joyeuses is after a meal. Despite my disappointment, I was really relieved to discover that they provide generous amounts of the filling you choose with your crepe.

Their Mango Crepe with Vanilla Ice Cream had a generous serving of ripe mangoes and was a delicious and light snack after a meal. The Strawberry Crepe with Vanilla Ice Cream also served the same purpose but was drizzled with good strawberry sauce.

I ordered their specialty, the Crepes Gianduja, which was actually a delicious dessert with a rich filling of roasted hazelnuts and almonds; almost similar to Nutella. Promising they only use Felchlin Gianduja for their crepes, you can really taste the difference with how rich its taste was. As suggested by our server, I had a serving of ice cream top over it and it was the best suggestion I took. The vanilla ice cream actually took away its 'umay' taste.
