This little gem of a café in Ballard is the pride and joy of Anita Ross. She opened her café in 2008, after making loads of crêpes at local farmer’s markets. In fact, she still takes her skillet and makes the rounds at Ballard, Magnolia, Queen Anne, Columbia City, Redmond, Mercer Island and Bellevue markets. Anita’s crêpes are made from scratch, with local and organic and ingredients. Hours are 9am – 3pm Monday through Thursday, 9am – 10pm on Friday, and 8am to 10pm on Saturdays and Sundays. She has savory crepes made with buckwheat that are vegan and gluten-free. Try the roasted red peppers, hummus, marinated great northern beans, red onion, niçoise olives and organic baby spinach on a vegan or buckwheat crêpe. Or try the Bacon and Cheese – double smoked apple wood bacon,
comté cheese and free range eggs with avocado, organic baby greens, fresh tomato, balsamic reduction and bourbon mustard. Ready for a sweet treat? Try the Coconut Banana crêpe. You can sit inside the cozy café, or outside when the weather calls for it.

“Fast Food – Old World Style” is the self-described caption for La Crêperie Voilá. And it fits. In a little walk up kiosk under the arch at 7th and Pike, outside the Convention Center, you’ll see the line for crêpes. Owner/operator Andrew Eigenrauch learned the skill in France, and after nine years of cooking at Farmer’s Markets, opened his popular shop in 2005. Andrew and his staff make your crêpe right in front of you, the way you like it, so it’s entertaining as well as delicious. Both Brittany style buckwheat and traditional sweet Parisian crêpes are on the menu. Try the Ratatouille – a medley of vegetables with fresh spinach, herbed butter and Swiss. A sweet crêpe like the dark chocolate, with raspberry sauce, hazelnuts and whipped cream will melt in your mouth. And if you really want to be decadent – try the gourmet Cherries Jubilee or Bananas Foster dessert crêpes. Hours are 8:00am – 8:30pm Monday through Thursday, 8:00am -9:30pm Friday, 9:00am – 9:30pm Saturday and 9:00am – 8:30pm Sunday. There is limited outdoor seating available.
