New to Victoria, Crêpe Village is a mobile food cart serving delicious French crêpes, with a touch of west coast flavour.

Officially opened on Sunday June 05, the arrival has people buzzing! Owner Ricardo Villanueva, has been active in the Victoria food scene and also owns the Great Pacific Pasty Co. cart seen this summer at Esquimalt Farmers Market, James Bay Market and other locations.

The menu at Crêpe Village has both savoury (including the vegetarian Mediterranean Veggie crêpe) and sweet options. Two of the items are very reminiscent of Paris, where you will find stands with Ham & Cheese and Nutella crêpes all across the city.

The pesto addicts among us also love the Pesto Chicken, for a delicious quick lunch!

*Crêpe is a very thin type of pancake, served with a variety of fillings. The word crêpe is French for “pancake” and is derived from the Latin “crispus” meaning “curled”. Crêpes originated in Brittany in the northwest region of France.
