One part inspiration and one part lucky break lead husband and wife Paul and Leslie Humphrey to launch their mobile creperie earlier this month. They were inspired by their European honeymoon and then opportunity found them in the form of some friends offering up a crepe cart logo they had been working on. Although they hadn’t had any experience in the food industry, they decided to take the plunge and try and offer people the same experience they enjoyed  during their time in Europe.

Leslie’s can currently be found at Pearl Alley market on Tuesdays and Fridays, on Broad street near Third on Monday and Wednesday for Breakfast and Lunch and on Third Thursday evenings on 5th Avenue in Grandview outside the Twisted Vine. They have lots of plans for other locations and events so, check their Facebook page for up to date locations and hours.

Leslie’s offers a choice of sweet and savory crepes, as well as Illy coffee. The crepes are left on the grill longer than at other creperies resulting in a crispier crepe. We tried two of their savory offerings: the feta, egg and spinach and the new vegetarian crepe.

The crepes are substantial and made a filing lunch. The spinach, feta and egg was our favorite: a crispy crepe with the salty kick of feta, fresh spinach leaves and cooked to order scrambled egg. Doesn’t it look good?

The vegetarian was similar to a quesadilla, with black bean salsa, sour cream and grated cheese. I suggested melting the cheese more and having some optional hot sauce and Paul was very receptive to the feedback. He admitted that they were still working out some of the kinks and tweaking their menu.

We’re looking forward to a return visit to try the sweet crepes.
