As we were staying at the Hotel Shangri La we breakfasted both mornings at Cafe Crepe. It’s a short walk away and whilst it would seem like an odd choice for someone who is GF I really enjoyed it. Usually I avoid any establishment that has a wheat based menu, and Cafe Crepes serves all day breakfasts, baguettes and crepes. But the chef is excellent, if I eat any wheat from cross contamination my lips swell and I had no problems here at all. I ate the huevros rancheros – something I had never had before and they were absolutely wonderful. The side of guacamole was the best I ever tasted. If being in a wheaty environment bothers you, you might want to give this a miss and I should point out that the cafe was very quiet when we ate there. Only a few other customers, I’m not sure I’d go in if I thought the chef had too much on his plate. But for a quiet GF breakfast, their chef certainly knew what he was doing -plus the chai latte was a treat.
We were lucky enough to be there the morning of the farmers market so I hit the fruit and nut stalls for snacks over the next couple of days as well. Nice and cheap, straight from the farms, no gluten in sight. Wonderful.
