Celebrate pancake day at Creme de la Crepe

For anyone who wants to get their pancake fix but is looking for something a bit more sedate than the Kindness Offensive's free pancake extravaganza, which kicks off an Ed's Diner this morning, why not pop along to the oddly named Creme de la Crepe in Covent Garden market today.

If, like your author, you mostly avoid non-pastie-based shops and cafes in the Covent Garden Market buildings like the touristland plague, you probably wont be aware of this small creperie, which has been operating downstairs in the South-Westerly corner of the piazza since October 2008.

Originally started as a Scotland, on a market stall in St Andrews in 2004, the company has gone from strength to strength, moving to Borough Market in 2007 and opening a proper cafe in Covent Garden the next year. Along the way they've catered fashion shows, appeared on Channel 4 and provided crepes to the American Embassy.

Creme de la Crepe is at 29 The Piazza, Covent Garden (downstairs in the SW corner). Eat in crepes are between £3.30 and £5.50 and you can find out more at http://www.cremedelacrepe.co.uk/, but turn down the volume to avoid their annoying website soundtrack.
