The Mort Street Yamaroshi development promised a precinct with quirky laneways, courtyards and atriums. Down one of those alley ways we stumbled upon sweet gold.
Crepe Stop appeals to both the sweet and savoury tooth. Started by husband and wife Michael and Amany in mid-May when the hospitality industry was suffering, Michael said “we had bills to pay and got the job done.” A brave move, yet slightly less risky when your product is delicious. At brekkie time stop in for an egg & cheese or tuna & mayo crepe. The base is thin and fluffy and less calories than a slice a break i’m told!
At lunch go a little more hearty with pepperoni or roast chicken & avo at very reasonable prices. While the savoury look exceptionally good, we visited for the sweet crepes – something which is seriously lacking in Canberra. We took them away in a cute triangle box which kind of looked down we had purchased a New York style pizza.
Dripping with Nutella, stuffed with strawberries and banana and sprinkled with crushed biscuit is how we took ours. A fail-safe favourite you can get all around Europe. The duo offers their sweet flavours in pancake form, and I should probably mention their whipped cream is homemade too! While waiting for our crepe to golden we did a quick Instagram search to find you can make your crepe rainbow for just $1.
Aside from the rainbow crepe – which is incredibly satisfying to watch being made, the customisable coffee tap caught our attention. It’s allegedly the only one in Australia! We knew workers had distanced themselves from their barista’s yet this tap gave social-distant coffee a whole new meaning.
Ordering a digital coffee seemed simple enough. Choose your coffee, adjust your strength, add as much or as little milk as you like and essentially be your own barista. While it the tap may not remember your name, it does remember your order. Theres a tap app which allows you to tap the machine and watch your pre-filled coffee order pour out.
You can find and support them just around the corner from street facing Sushi Fresh on Mort street Braddon. Sushi Fresh is another newbie on the street worth giving a go. They have a quick on the go takeaway window or enjoy laneway dining with a tasty bento box.
Visit them in Braddon or get it on UberEats!
