Taking a change of pace, a friend and I decided to visit a part of London that we had never been, and check out the Chatsworth Road Markets. It would seem that the people of Clapton Village are a little spoilt for choice in regards to cafes, delis, and boutique stores. We picked a few places along the way that we would like to try out, but as these things go, you have to make a choice. We chose Creperie Du Monde, to grab a bite to eat and a coffee.
It was a lovely sunny morning, so we decided to sit outside, which has been a rare treat over the previous months. Time to lap up the spring weather.
They have quite an extensive menu at Creperie Du Monde, which includes both sweet and savoury options. I could have easily picked a few different things from both sides of the menu, but I was in the mood for something savoury. The Jerk Chicken sounded appealing, so I ordered the Taste of the Caribbean crepe. The crepe comes with salad, a healthy portion of jerk chicken, and the jerk sauce. Be cautioned, the sauce is a bit spicy. A little too spicy for me, but I’m a wimp, so I only have myself to blame for that.
They serve beans from Climpson and Sons, who roast their beans nearby in London Fields. It wasn’t the best coffee I’ve had, but it wasn’t bad either. The coffee itself was fine, but I think they need to work on the milk a little. If I were to visit again to get another crepe fix, I would be happy enough to have another coffee.
The portions are quite generous, and have a large selection on the menu, including sweet and savoury options. Perfect for breakfast, lunch, dinner, or dessert. They are both traditional, and inspired from international flavours.
It’s my fault, but I just cant handle spicy food. Such a woose! I was also a little disappointed with the coffee, considering the beans come from a local roaster that I am familiar with. Come for the crepes I guess.
