Crepes-Isla Mujeres

March7

By guest blogger Margaret (note from Kath: long-time friend of honourary sister D).

 

One of the first places Andy and I went out for breakfast on Isla  was a little place on Hidalgo-with a sign with “Crepes” written on it.

It wasn’t busy so we decided to sit at outside at a small table.  Our waitress greeted us warmly and we ordered “cafe”.  We learned her name is Gloria and although she doesn’t speak English fluently, she communicated easily with us. She was very warm, smiling and told us about her trip to  Canada wich included Vancouver, Jasper, Calgary and Niagara Falls. 

Andy ordered crepes with frest fruit.  It covered the whole plate decorated with chocolate, icing sugar, whipped cream and a strawberry.  The presentation was wonderful.  Inside was piled with fresh fruit-delicious.

I chose an omelet with tomatoes and cheese, served with lettuce, cucumbers and tomato.  It was also an extra large serving.  The eggs were moist and not over-cooked-yum.

What a relaxing way to start the day on Isla!  Scrumptuous food and coffee served by Gloria (with smiles) at a very resonable price.  We have resturned for another breakfast since and if Gloria sees us passing by she is sure to yell “Hola”.  We recommend Crepes on Hildalgo (close to the square).

Kath’s quote:“…sprinkled with sugar and eaten hot, they form an exquisite dish. They have a golden hue and are tempting to eat. Thin and transparent like muslin, their edges are trimmed to resemble fine lace. They are so light that after a good dinner, a man from Agen is still willing to sample three or four dozen of them! Crêpes form an integral part of every family celebration. Served with white wine, they take pride of place on all joyful occasions.”-Anatole France
