Super friendly and accommodating, delicious food. This place is a hidden gem in Olde Town waiting for you to discover it! I am so glad that I found it! It has been sooo long since I have been able to have crepes and they have gf crepes made out of buckwheat. I highly recommend the Ratatouille!
I called before trying out this restaurant, La Crepe Michel. They said nothing about : " chef is knowledgable about the disease and how to safely prepare food." Instead I was told that they make bread in thee same area as all other food and they flour is in the air and they could not promise that other food would not be cross contaminated. Plus, the ONLY crepe that is GF is made with buckwheat. Buckwheat is not safe to all celiacs such as myself....so let's be careful how we say if this place is celiac safe! Not for me....
We had a blast trying all different savory and sweet crepes! With 4 Celiac family members, we were thrilled to find this little gem! The restaurant is very small, with a quiet atmosphere. You'll enjoy the feeling of eating in France while enjoying the historic old town Albuquerque. Our favorites were the French-onion soup, the pork savory crepe and the three-cheese with lemon or the "David" dessert crepe! The escargot were great, too! They make the GF crepes with buckwheat. None of us got sick, but we left very full!
This was my favorite restaurant for years, so when I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease I was so excited to find out the chef is knowledgable about the disease and how to safely prepare food. I can have almost all of the same foods I used to order, and it all tastes amazing.
