Crêpes or crepes are a common street food staple in France. While they sound upscale and fancy, crepes are actually fairly easy to pull off at home, but Sweet Pea’s Cafe does such a masterful job of crafting crepes that you ought to consider getting out of your stretchy pants this weekend and swinging by this cute little cafe in Los Gatos, California.
The original Sweet Pea’s Cafe was opened by Michael McBride and Dorte McBride nearly two decades ago with the aim of serving fresh, tasty and affordable grub in Los Gatos. All of the ingredients that Sweet Pea’s Cafe uses are organic and sourced from local producers.
Breakfast is served all day at Sweet Pea’s. While the cafe offers everything from omelets to waffles as well as salads and burgers, you can’t go wrong if you opt for one of Sweet Pea’s crepes crammed full of flavorful fillings. You can opt to start your day off with something light like, perhaps, a half serving of Sweet Pea’s veggie Benedict (which consists of hollandaise sauce, a poached egg, spinach and tomato all wrapped in a crepe of your choosing) or you can go big. Really big. Sweet Pea’s Cafe has a Hawaiian classic loco moco crepe that takes a large crepe of your choice and combines it with a hamburger patty, an egg cooked to your liking, spinach, mushrooms and a white wine and mushroom “gravy.” There’s also a jammin’ crepe with a sweet cream cheese and raspberry jam filling, two eggs and your choice of bacon, chicken apple sausage or ham and, of course, whipped cream.
Whether you decide to go sweet or savory, Sweet Pea’s Cafe makes for the perfect brunch spot any day of the week.
