REVIEW: Should You Try Fancy French Fast Food in EPCOT?

By admin May28,2024

Whoever popularized the phrase “you can’t have your cake and eat it too” clearly never tried the crepes from the France pavilion in EPCOT at Disney World.

Our full meal!

There’s so much to explore in the France pavilion between a royal meet and greet with a Disney princess, some of our favorite dessert and quick service food spots, and one of EPCOT’s most popular rides. But, even with all of that, you can STILL want (and get) more than you ever thought possible!

If you’ve ever found yourself headed back through the France pavilion on a mission to ride Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure, chances are you’ve glanced over and seen a line waiting patiently for crepes on your way to and from the ride.

Who’s headed back to ride Remy’s?

On a recent trip out to EPCOT, we just couldn’t resist stopping anymore and decided to hop in line and try out a few of their menu offerings!

Atmosphere

What you see is what you get with this restaurant, quite literally! It’s built as a smaller offering just off from its neighboring La Creperie de Paris which is a more extensive dining experience indoors.

Crepes A Emporter

Crepes A Emporter at La Creperie de Paris is a permanent snack stand restaurant built to serve its patrons at the next window after you’ve placed your order. The closest tables to sit and enjoy your meal will be found in a very small alcove at the front of the Ratatouille expansion or entrance of the France pavilion of EPCOT.

Menu

The menu here isn’t terribly extensive, but it doesn’t have to be to draw the crowd. This popular snack stop serves everything from savory and sweet crepe options…

Menu

… to ice cream for dessert, hard ciders, sparking drinks, wines, and a few soft drinks with water as an alternative.

Drink

Let’s start things off with what we ordered to drink. After browsing the menu, we settled on ordering the Cidre Doux for $6.75.

Cidre Doux

This was definitely a sweeter cider and quick to lose its fizz after it sat out in the open for a little bit. This one is best enjoyed fresh from the pour but tastes like sparkling apple juice. It was sweet with just a little acidity, to it making it a great choice if you’re looking for an alcoholic drink that doesn’t have a hard flavor behind it.

Eats

Then it was time to move on to our meal. We actually ordered three different crepes to try out this visit — the Cream of Brie Cheese Galette, the Butter & Sugar Crepe, and the Housemade Hazelnut & Chocolate Spread Crepe.

Our full meal!

Speaking of the Cream of Brie Cheese Galette first, this beauty has such a beautiful presence about it and cost us $11.95.

Cream of Brie Cheese Galette

This was probably the most interesting of the bunch. Nothing about this dish is sweet, but you get a tangy taste to your bite when you get some of the brie cheese on the inside.

Cross section

For a savory option, this delivers well and doesn’t make you super full. (It also paired really well as a savory option with the sweetness of the cider)!

Cheese!

This it was time to try out the Butter & Sugar Crepe. This one cost us $6.95.

Butter & Sugar Crepe

This one tasted like a very thin, sweet pancake with several layers to it. The extra sugar that’s coated on top crumbles in your mouth like sugar cubes used in tea.

Cross section of the crepe

We absolutely loved how everything seemed to work well together for this crepe but it’s definitely a lot of sweet so we could see some folks finding this one to a sweetness overload.

Finally, we were able to focus all our attention on the Housemade Hazelnut & Chocolate Spread Crepe which cost just $8.95.

Housemade Hazelnut & Chocolate Spread Crepe

This was another sweet crepe option but it definitely shares the flavor spotlight with the housemade hazelnut spread.

All the hazelnut drizzle!

The hazelnut mimics a milk chocolate consistency but you’ll instantly taste that it’s not milk chocolate but rather a distinct hazelnut flavor. We enjoyed this crepe very much, but it’s also worth noting that it was the messiest of all that we tried out this visit.

So sweet!

Since we were good and saved room for dessert, we decided to pick up a Soft Serve Ice Cream in a Waffle Cone for $6.95. Here you’ll be able to choose from chocolate, vanilla, or a swirl of the two flavors so we decided to grab the swirl this time.

Soft Serve Ice Cream in a Waffle Cone

HOLY COW! This soft serve may have been the fastest ice cream to melt ever! We’re not sure if it was the flavor or just the temperature of the soft serve when it was served but literally within seconds this one was a melted mess right before our eyes.

Too melty!

Eventually, we opted to clean up a bit of the mess with a spoon and try to finish it as fast as we could. In terms of flavor, it “served” as good as any other soft serve ice cream in Disney where we got a healthy mix of the crisp vanilla flavor mixed in with the light chocolatey taste of the other side of the swirled soft serve.

Overall

Overall we really enjoyed our crepe meal and could totally see ourselves getting everything we ate today all over again!

That was a great meal

It’s always a good thing when we’re able to find a reliable place to grab a quick snack so to add this restaurant to our list of trusted locations really speaks volumes for its quality.

Nosh or Not?

You should grab food here if…

  • You’re looking for something that’s totally grab-and-go. There’s no seating here for this restaurant so if grabbing a snack and heading out is for you, this would be perfect!
  • You’re looking for something shareable! These crepes are plenty to be enjoyed between two people and ideal for those looking to stretch their budget.
  • You’re looking for a sweet snack. Most of the crepes here will be a sweeter option so if that’s what you’re craving you may find it curbed easily by stopping by.

You’ll probably want to stop somewhere else if…

  • You want to take your food and sit down to eat. There’s absolutely no seating for this restaurant and that tends to shock people so if you’re looking to sit and enjoy your meal you’ll be walking a distance away to find a table to sit and eat.
  • You’re looking for more French cuisine. This restaurant is truly meant to be a limited crepe stand with a few pairing options. If you’re looking for something more extensive, try the restaurant right next door!
  • You’re in the mood for savory over sweet. While there are a few savory options here, there are only so many when it comes to variety. Most of the menu items here will be sweet (even down to the drinks)!
