Crepes de Luxe

After our second full day of yoga teacher training my new yogi pal Jamie and I headed straight to Crepes De Luxe Cafe.

Crepes De Luxe is a newer cafe in downtown Iowa City and I have been dying to try their delicious crepes for a while now.

We each started with our own Savory Crepes. I went for the Ratatouille (I love that word) with a buckwheat crepe. It was filled with mozzarella, eggplant, tomatoes and zucchini and topped with some fresh spinach.

It was a perfect post-yoga lunch. On the lighter side, but so satisfying.

Over lunch we reminisced about the times we each have spent in Europe enjoying crepes, gelato and spinach pies.

After we demolished our Savory crepes we decided to share a Sweet variety. And we inched up to watch them rake out our delicious crepe.

Even though I am partial to Nutella with Strawberries, the Nutella + Banana combination was incredible.Picture 348

Gooey, melty, chocolaty Nutella.

Iowa City is pretty great – for a Midwest college town it has a ton of personality and an unique artsy feel. And it happens to value some of the most important things in life:

Local and cultural food, yoga, and Nutella.
