Meet Creperie Breizh, an authentic French creperie on wheels

breizhAn "authentic French creperie on wheels" started rolling on the streets of Baltimore last November.  

Its name is Creperie Breizh -- Breizh is the Breton (Celtic) name for Brittany.

The owner are Missy and Eric Coatrieux. He is from Brittany, she is from around here; he trained racehorses in the United States in Canada, she was an equestrian. They met, working for the same trainer, in Florida.

The crepes are made with all fresh ingredients -- early favorites include the Normandy, with apple, brie and chicken, and a sweet crepe with raspberry and white chocolate.  

Getting a food truck rolling is tough -- the City and the County have different, and sometimes daunting, licensing and regulation procedures.

But the Coatrieux had a leg-up. The happen to be neighbors, just outside of Reisterstown, with Christine Richardson from the Iced Gems cupcake truck. "She went out of her way to help us" Missy Coatrieux told me. 

Creperie Breizh parks on Chestnut Street in Hampden on first Fridays -- there's one of those coming up.

The best way to get information about the whereabouts of Cafe Breizh is to friend them on facebook or follow them on Twitter (search for CreperieBreizh). But a typical schedule looks like this:

Monday, near Loyola University, on East Cold Spring by the Geppi-Aikens athletic field

Tuesday, near Towson University, on Cross Campus Drive

Wednesday, near JHU, at Charles & 34th

Thursday, near MICA, at Mt. Royal and Lafayette

Friday, in Hunt Valley, at 200 International Circle

The phone number is 443-769-7516

Nutella crepe is a must

near Towson University? I'll have to check it out.

This was a poorly written piece.

um, thanks for the feedback

|I am sure you could find a better crepe in a mexican fast food joint. Will not be making the trip again.

Are some people cranky because the world didn't come to an end?

It is kind of a let down. It reminds me of that sinking feeling I got when I realized that being vaporized by a flock of ICBMs was no longer a likely solution to the problems of the moment.
