La Petite Creperie, Forest Hill by Bureaucrat

Near the corner of Swanston and Collins Streets in the city, it's hard not to see (or rather, smell) La Petite Creperie.  The beautiful aromatic scent of butter, eggs and sugar in the form of crepes cuts through the traffic noise and smell like a delicious siren song.  

Its suburban outpost, located rather unexpectedly in Forest Hill Chase Shopping Centre, has the same effect on suburbanites.  Ensconced in a cute little caravan, the staff are ready to take your order with their delightful French accented English.  For research purposes, I just had to get one of each of the main items - a crepe and a waffle.  There's a range of toppings to choose from, such as Nutella, cream, ice cream, sugar, lemon juice.

I haven't had many waffles in my life but if they're as good as this, then I'm a die-hard fan!  Soft and fluffy and wonderfully insubstantial (in a refined sugar and wheat sort of way - the best sort of way!) this waffle had both Boy Chick and I wanting more!  We had ours with salted caramel and whipped cream - divine!

The crepe was lovely and thin and folded into a triangle.  We also had salted caramel with this.  I liked the eggy flavour that came from the crepe.  While the crepe was also very nice but we much preferred the waffle (it was just so fluffy and light!).

Oh my! From now on, it will be very hard not to make a detour to La Petite Creperie when I'm at Forest Hill Shopping Centre.  Well worth checking out if you're in the area.
