It’s no secret that I’m a huge fan of breakfast foods, the prettier the better. I took an embarrassingly long time to check out The Little Creperie in Concord but it was worth the wait!
The Little Creperie had one marketing advantage that I noticed right away: the front windows face the State House directly! In New Hampshire we are lucky to have tons of beautiful oceanside views in our Seacoast restaurants and shops, but how often do we appreciate a good Capitol View? If the weather is too chilly for a swim, why not check out the Capitol’s history, show up for the Capitol Street Farmers’ Market on Saturday mornings, or attend a festival on the lawn? Consider this your invitation to celebrate the pretty gold dome and all it offers the City of Concord and our great state.
Back to the breakfast! In addition to the majestic outside views, the interior ones aren’t hard on the eyes, either. Between the subway tile and chalkboard menus, everything is welcoming and cozy. There are some booths and tables (not pictured) but it does get busy during mealtimes.
I ordered the first thing I saw on the menu, which was the Raspberry Beret crepe. Besides being ridiculously pretty, it’s also delicious. This one is covered in designs of raspberry, chocolate, and a cream cheese sauce, and topped with chopped pistachios. It’s certainly a sweet treat and the pistachios add a good crunch to make each bite satisfying. If sweet isn’t your cup of tea, of if you just want a variety of crepes, they offer many savory options as well, including The Saucy Pig which has bacon, shredded chicken, and barbecue sauce. I have a major sweet tooth, so I will probably opt for the sweet crepes most of the time, but I appreciate having options. I think I need to go back and try their cinnamon bun waffles!
The Little Creperie is open Wednesday through Sunday from 8am to 3pm. They have recently begun to serve 603 beer, and on weekends, they serve mimosas! In short: plan ahead. Stop by and see them at 138 North Main Street in Concord (right across from the State House!)
