Crepes at Melt Gelato

While I think that the classy food court on the bottom level of the SF Westfield Shopping Center is way overpriced, there are certain things that I find hard to resist. Like Korean BBQ chicken at Sorabol. Or a cream puff at Beard Papa's. And now finally, the crepes at Melt Gelato. While I love ice cream/gelato, I actually skipped trying the gelato at this place and went straight to the crepes!

Strawberry & cream crepe - fresh strawberries, nuts, nutella, whip cream, & powdered sugar ($4.95)

This crepe was simply wonderful! Light and fluffy with a generous amount of strawberries and nutella on the inside and powdered sugar sprinkled on top. Beautiful presentation as well.

Melt has a variety of sweet and savory crepes, usually ranging from $2.95 to $7.95. You can also get gelato a la mode with a plain crepe ($1.25). Unfortunately, they no longer offer their apple pie crepe, but it's still on their menu, teasing us with illusions of apple compote and caramel.

Now that I've fallen in love with Melt's crepes, I think I need to try their gelato next time!

I just want to say that I really appreciate your reviews. I love the fact that you attach pictures to your experiences. That speaks a thousand words alone. Thank you so much!

If you happen to hit another Melt Gelato somewhere, I'd love to see and read about what you have to say on it too. Chow!

i tried Melt's crepes in Torrance and it was terrible! I had a savory crepe which they made with CHEDDAR cheese! The mushrooms were canned as well as the artichokes. It was terrible. They should really use Swiss at least for their savory crepes. Cheddar cheese in a crepe is like using cheese spread in an omelette!
