Crepe Cottage, Gurney Drive

We have been to this little cottage for several years already. Originally, the cooking was done by one single owner. So, it was kinda like a home-cooked food where you gotta wait for your mother to get food ready everything for you. However, they have improved the place and service is improved too, with serving staff.

So, if you enjoy a little sea breeze, have time to kill and want to sit under the starlit nights or in the comfort of their little air-conditioned cottage, head over to this place. It is along the mid-span of Gurney Drive but I just can’t recall any landmarks to point out to you. Just keep looking out for a tiny bluish cottage like a kampong house, will you? 😛

Like their name suggests, it sells mainly crepes and pancakes. But they also have salads, soups and some grilled chicken. The above is the spinach soup that I had. I had earlier eaten tandoori and naan from another place so I was really too full to enjoy anything. If the soup looks good, then, it must be good. 😛

Very garlicky garlic bread that my son ordered but couldn’t eat due to the garlics. I gotta finish them up for him.

My 15 years old son is going through growth spurt and had one nutty, chocolate pancake while my toddler ordered this banana and raisin crepe. I am not a fan of fresh bananas. I would prefer they fry the banana first. Then again, maybe banana fans may enjoy the freshly cut bananas.

A ham and cheese crepe. Portion is really tiny so that’s why my 15 years old need two items on the menu to fill up.

They have many, many things on their menu and it can get puzzling to read all of them. So, what I normally do is to tell them the main ingredients and leave the item to their service staff to recommend.

There are some fanciful drinks and one of my son who ordered some peachy shake said it tastes like antibiotic and we left the drink untouched. So, don’t be too adventurous and stick to basic drinks if you don’t want surprises.

I think the place serves no pork but it is not halal.

So, the next time you want a place to hang out, see the starry skies, hear the waves, sit under coconut trees or in an air-conditioned cottage, head over to this place. Prices are reasonable. I was left with only RM50 in my wallet and lucky the whole order only costs RM49.50 😛 (I wasn’t aware I have no money left in my wallet.)

    Boycotted this place since the first time I went there. Service was utterly horrible (How bad is having to clear your own table and pick up your own cutlery and drinks)

    That aside, the owner is rather ‘kiam-siap’. One of my cousins who had worked with her left after 2 months. She does not pay the wages which she originally promises to her workers. One time extra help was hired just for the night, and she did not pay them as promised. Instead she only gave them each a meal from the menu. The monies to be paid were 4 times the price of an average menu item.

    The food isnt really that great either.

    It’s somewhere between that Cuban club called “Chasers” and that place that serves curry fishhead. Their flapjacks is one of the most sinfully delicious dish with whipped cream, mapel syrup, strawberry jam and ice cream and 3 layers of pancakes. Yummy!
