Creperie Saint-Germain Adds Two New Locations In San Francisco

The crepe crusader, which started as a humble food truck, will soon have four actual store-front locations.

Creperie Saint-Germain’s newest locale is in the Bank of America building at 555 California Ave. An additional site will open in July at the Metreon Center at 135 Fourth St.

The fast-casual cafes specialize in buckwheat crepes, which are naturally gluten-free.

Enjoy traditional crepes such as the “Sugar Crepe” (filled with lemon, butter or cinnamon; $5) or more innovative ones such as a caramel and fleur de sel ($6) or one overflowing with braised beef, avocado, jalapeno, cheese, tomato and green onions ($9.50).

  • I would LOVE to dine in a vineyard, I’ve always wanted to do that. Paired with a good wine and enjoying the beautiful surroundings would be such a dream…too bad I don’t live anywhere near where this is taking place. 🙁
