Binghamton Restaurant Week Spotlight on Crepe Heaven
Binghamton Restaurant Week is a great way to try different restaurants you may have wanted to go to, but never had the chance, and at a bargain price!
One of those, possibly overlooked, eateries is Crepe Heaven at 217-219 Main Street, Binghamton in the West Side Plaza.
We’ve been meaning to go there and check it out, but either just never thought about it for lunch or dinner or assumed there was no place to park.
Well, it turns out there’s a good-size parking lot for the plaza at the corner of Schiller Street that’s easy to get in and out of and a traffic light to assist getting back on Main Street.
As for the food, we sampled home-made soup, savory crepes and home-made chocolate-caramel cake.
The Ricotta Crepe with spinach was creamy and the accompanying marinara sauce was a perfect match. The sauce also paired well with the Veggie Crepe, stuffed full of favorites like broccoli, peppers, onions and more.
Both crepes were enormous, taking up the width of the plate. After finishing a generous-sized bowl of the flavorful vegetable soup, it was hard to finish the crepe and the wedge of fluffy, rich cake. (But we 'forced' ourselves)
Crepe Heaven has several varieties of savory crepes including ham and pizza as well as the sweet crepes many people are more familiar with.
It’s not all about the crepes and desserts, though. Crepe Heaven serves Panini’s Gyros and something called a Bosnian Burger.
Many people also have been known to lounge in the bright front dining area to enjoy a Cappuccino, Turkish Coffee or tea while people-watching.
If you can’t make it to Crepe Heaven for Restaurant Week, definitely put it on your list for future dining since the regular prices are very reasonable and all the food prepared fresh, flavorful and in-house.
