We just love this place!!!! Great breads!!! Desserts...
I am glad to see something other than pub fare on Manitou Ave. My first visit was about 3 months ago, and I have been back probably 12-15 times since! My current favorite is the "Farmer" - chicken, spinach, tomato & goat cheese in a crepe! Mmmmm.... Heck, they even serve burgers now for the gastronomical philistines... ;-)
My wife and I thought we'd try a new restaurant for my Fathers Day meal. So I suggested we try Coquette Creperie, based on the menu I found online. As we both have been in the restaurant business, we base our opinions and critiques from a professional standpoint. If you want to be blown away by some out of this world cuisine, this is the place for you. Everything we ordered from the baby portabello mushroom appetizer to the Latin Lover crepe, to the lavender/chocolate mousse dessert crepe, tantalized our tastebuds and had us begging for more. Even the iced tea was phenomenal. The prices are very reasonable and you definately get your money's worth. Kudos to Turu and her Mom (owners) and Scott the Chef.
Do yourself a favor and seek this little gem out. They are in the strip mall with the Yarn Outlet and a horse supply store across 8th Street from Hobby Lobby. The second you walk in you can smell heaven. From full size pies like grandma used to make to 'sweetie pies' for one or two, to mini cheesecakes in a plethora of flavors, decadent brownies and cake which truly is 'like no other', every baked good here is worth every cent and every calorie. And you won't find a more attentive, positive staff and ownership no matter where you look! I guess the sweetness is baked in both the goods and the people who run the place. The holidays are the perfect excuse to try them out. Place an order, but do it in person... you won't be able to leave without a treat for the road.
Tremendous breads. Best Whole Wheat I've ever had, except for my own "Al Dente Whole Wheat" secret recipe. Nice people. Free samples on the counter. Marvelous Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Loaf that is heavy and dense. Many healthy breads to choose from.
