13 Reviews for Torchon French Creperie & Wine Cafe
I liked the fact that the gallette was not overly salty, and I was able to season it to my own preference with the table salt. With lots of lemon that I squeezed over the top, it was extremely tasty, and very filling.
Very friendly French wait staff, and a cosy setting.
It is very cool how there are about four different places that you can sit to eat at this place. It has its own double doors out on to the cobblestone street, as well as doors into the Elliot Stables indoor eating hall.
Thumbs up to this place.
Absolutely awful service, have never been treated this way in a restaurant before. The waitress was so rude, and we won’t be going back.
Elliot Stables are one place that not to be missed…when you in the city with food for thought!
Great place to accomodate any numbers of crowd…that is when you can actually find a seat.
Torchon French Cafe make good lunch. I enjoy it and the quantity is generous.
Food: Great taste.
Service: Good and friendly staff.
There was one time where I went there alone to have a crepe and a cup of coffee. Just so you know, I am a patient and smiley sort of customer. My coffee arrived. Good coffee…but with my coffee finished… no crepe in sight. After 40 minutes of waiting for my berry crepe to arrive… it seems that they didn’t put my order down properly…
I politely enquired them about it. The waiter apologised profusely and I wasn’t charged for my meal and berry crepe arrived hot and tasty. That redeemed them I suppose.
But last time I went there, it seems that they’ve changed the creme brulee recipe to a sub-standard one…
Good-bye to the delicious vanilla creme brulee with the right consistency, caramalized sugar and vanilla beans at the bottom… Sigh…at $8 something, I didn’t really care about the price to be honest… despite being able to make it at home. Now… not so sure… I think the over-cooked the egg mixture with the milk because texture didn’t seem right. Or maybe it was just my bad pot-luck.
Read a couple of reviews about the quality of crepes. Never been to France, so can’t say much about genuine French cuisine. Not really an avid crepe taster, but have had crepes in roulottes in Tahiti, so not exactly a complete naive taster, so yes, I agree, the crepes would be much improved if they did them hotter and better textured. Tahitian friend didn’t enjoy their nutella crepe, thought it was rubbish and ended up leaving half of it.
It’s a bit of a shame because it’s such a nice place. Other hot foods on menu would be better. I enjoy the relaxed atmosphere there. Staff there always very friendly and nice to me. Kind of fun with converse with them in French from time to time, they are always very willing and patient wiMoreth my accent!
I think this place is nice to bring a friend for brunch if you want to break them gently into the world of French cuisine. Decor on wall is fascinating to look at and music is faultless.
For a fun novelty thing for newbies, try the crepe suzette. Blue flames and alcohol infused crepes can’t go wrong unless you hate citrus fruits. Very sweet, warm and tangy.
I would recommend trying the hot foods other than crepes these days, because if I go back, that will be what I’m doing.
I came back here yesterday to have the Latine galette, which is a vegetarian savoury crepe with a ratatouille and pesto filling and yes, it was just as delicious as it sounds! My two friends both had the banana, honey and almond crepes and they were practically licking their plates.
It was lunch hour when we went and the cafe was pretty full, it took a while for our menus to be brought to us but they nonetheless made up for it with friendly service. And who doesn’t love being called “Mademoiselle” by a beautiful Gallic man every now and then
Try to meet people for lunch or dinner here as much as possible, love the atmosphere – the cobbled path and decor is all part of the enjoyment.
Suggest you don’t arrive at closing time otherwise you’ll get a lot of woo woo woo & la la la. Nice people wish them best of luck with their venture.
