Crepes!


So, my lovelies, I have a favour to ask. My friend is opening up a creperie and we've been trying think of the perfect name. I was telling him how clever all of my friends here are and suggested that I ask your thoughts, opinions and ideas on this one. I'm kind of excited to help out with the design and planning of the space. I'll be sure to share! xo
ps- also, what's your favourite kind of crepe?

  5. Ohhh..must put my brain to work! I must say that my favorite crepes are Strawberry Crepes Romanoff; must be that Grand Marnier? It would indeed be great fun to help with such a project, not to mention helping a friend.

    All the best Erika! I'll write back if my brain can produce anything decent ( :

  7. Nutella crepes are my absolute favorite!

    Hmmm...names. I have some for fish stands and chocolate shops, but creperies huh?

    "take the crepe"
    "bourré" ...that's 'stuffed' en francais!

    Now I'll be thinking about it all day ;)

  9. The word crepe is derived from the Latin word crispa, meaning "curled" so you could use that to play with some names!

    Holy Crepe & What tha Crepe....I don't think that's the vibe you all are going for...LOL....I know your friends will do a MUCH better job of coming up with names...can't wait to hear the final name....then, I need to know where this crepe shop is so I can put it on my list of places to visit! :-)

  13. I love beau lifestyle's idea of Suzette- love one word for impact and the name makes the restaurant sound slightly sexy and alluring crepes...with a bit of a Parisian twist- perfect!

  14. I love the idea of a french name. So fitting for crepes.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Hmmm..so delicious. For names ~ "Wrapture" or something simple.. "Crepe Love" or silly.. "Must Love Crepes". This is great fun. Bonjour!!

    Voulez vous

    Crepe a go go
    Cote du crepe

  19. Oh my gosh...they look fabulous - and strawberry is my favorite!! Pondering on the name...

    ReplyDelete
  20. If I ever open a shop I'm coming to beau lifestyle for the name!

    Chou Chou was my Mom's nickname growning up, but now that's pretty much her name outside of work. I love it.

  21. For a sweet crepe, nutella and strawberries for sure! For a savory one, I love a little cheese with some ham or bacon, and maybe something green, like spinach or asparagus. Yum.

    Here in SF, there's a really popular crepe placed called The Crepevine. But many of the names listed above are equally as cute and catchy!

    crepe de L'amour
    Jou Vu crepe (i want crepe)
    The Creperie

  27. I Love crepes, and I make them all the time (lately). Used to have a Crepe shop very close by back in Toronto, but since we moved now I have to make them to satisfy my craving! Love swiss cheese with either mushrooms or spinach, and as for sweet ones, has to be nutella and strawberries!
