Crepes & Waffles

Crepes & Waffles first opened in 1980 with it’s first location coming to Medellin in 1994. And with over 140 locations in 8 countries, Crepes & Waffles is an institution. A Colombian success story.

 

And like most institutions, successes, and “popular” establishments it’s likely to cause debates and arguments. Some will scoff at the cookie cutter “chainy-ness”. “Chainy-ness” not to be confused with Cheneyness, the first having to do with a chain of establishments, and the latter having to do with … (insert expletive of your choice here).

 

Some will ridicule it’s bourgeois sterility and lack of local charm and grit. Leaving aside the inherent questionability of admiring either “grit” or a lack of sterility in your restaurant choices for a moment, and ignoring the class warfare Che-ism of hating anything successful let us just focus on the actual establishment, and not the pedantic attempts to incorporate it into some larger social movement. The fact is that the place just rocks.

 

The same people who tell you to stay away from Parque Lleras because of it’s cliche Gringofied sterility will surely recoil in horror at the suggestion that you pop by Crepes and Waffles for a bit of lunch. But let’s be honest, that in and of itself is reason enough to suggest it, si o que?

 

When I first asked someone what Crepes and Waffles was, they told me it was an ice cream and dessert place. Ok, well that’s technically kinda correct. But the suggestion that you go there for dinner doesn’t really get you excited. It’s like suggesting you take a date to Braum’s for dinner. And leaving aside the fact that Braum’s actually does make a tasty burger, it’s probably not going to get you any action. But then again if you’re relying on your choice of restaurant for that….wait, how did we get off on this. Nevermind. Back to Crepes and Waffles.

 

The menu is huge and really varied, of course they have all the things their name would suggest from desserts and sweets to lunch versions of dishes using crepes as a base, but they also have crepes incorporated into things like Thai Chicken or Hindu curry (please feel free to insert your own joke here about Colombians having the first clue about either Thai heat or Curry). But look at these food items and tell me again how you’re not interested in trying them out….liar.
