I’m glad it was safe to eat here but the tapioca crepes were a super odd texture that I was not prepared for. It’s basically like eating seeds/dried dippin dots. Celiac friendly but I did not think it was very delicious. I ate the toppings out of my crepe.
Be careful! The food was really tasty, but we grabbed a dessert to enjoy later. Seeing it was a “gluten free facility” I didn’t check the label. Shame on me. The dessert had gluten. It was a delicious bar, and after 1 bite I was questioning what was in it because it was fantastic. That is when I noticed it had wheat flour. These should not be sold in a gluten free facility!
Wow! These crepes were so phenomenal we had to go back the next day. We had breakfast crepes the first day and then went back for lunch and had a chicken and carnitas crepe combos. Now I’m watching videos on how to make these back home, if I lived in NYC I would eat here all the time. No reactions either day!
I had a crepe with prosciutto and a salad. No reaction. Tasty. Kind of weird combos for the fillings but perhaps those are just normal in other places. The place has a nice amount of seating too. Excellent when on the UWS especially if visiting the AMNH
The “crepe” doesn’t really have any flavor at all, so enjoyment will be based on what fillings you pick. I got the vegan crepe and added salmon and I really enjoyed it! Staff was very knowledgeable and I had no issues. The “crepe” probably won’t be loved by everyone - it’s literally just pearls from what I could tell, not a batter made from tapioca starch. It becomes batter-like from the liquid in the fillings, so mine turned out really good. My boyfriend only had egg and tomato for fillings and didn’t seem to enjoy it as much, but he was a good sport and didn’t say anything because it was somewhere for me to eat that was close to the Museum of Natural History
Tapioca crepes were very strange. Looked like they were coated in white beads. No real flavor. Non GF people would not be looking for them! Fillings skimpy for the price. Very nice people, everything in the store is gluten free. I didn't get sick. I didn't try the desserts, which looked good. My non-GF co-diners felt sorry for me having to eat weird GF food! I tried to explain it's usually much better than this.
Chic, petite & clean-cut cafe tailored for those who, like me, are scootin' from the gluten. "Tap" refers to tapioca, of course, and they do beautiful tapioca crepes, coffee and tea etc. A genuinely friendly staff, and super high prices, round out the exceedingly positive experience.
