Originally launched a year and a half ago for a brief stint in Old Colorado City, Colorado Crepe Company
fired up its griddles at Pikes Peak Market
in January, operated by Leah Shockley and Annie Lepillez. Shockley brings eight years of food service industry experience, and Lepillez delivers the true-French street cred, raised bilingual in Valence, France. They say they aren’t aiming for traditional executions, instead spotlighting organic/local ingredients and a “mix between Colorado and France,” perhaps best illustrated by our green chile breakfast crepe ($10), wherein 505 Green Chile Sauce melds with Mexican cheese and Boulder Sausage with egg and red onion. Queso fresco, avocado slices, sour cream and bright Azteca Gourmet pico de gallo all garnish the enjoyable crepe. The outstanding Ham & Swiss crepe ($9) smacks more classic, with hickory-smoked ham, Swiss Gruyère, and sautéed onions and herb-dusted mushrooms evoking earthy pungency punctuated by honey-Dijon mustard.
