Crpes la Carte is a student-driven crpe stall in Melbourne University, next to the John Medley building. For those who aren't students, that's just off Grattan Street. Self-described "crpe enthusiasts," they cook and serve their meals in minutes: perfect for a quick lunch on-the-go.

The Crpes la Carte stall.

Unlike some traditional French crpes, the cooks at Crpes la Carte go heavy on the batter, serving a satisfyingly thick crpe with a variety of fillings. The thickness means that the crpe stays warm for minutes, turning a decent meal into a delicious one. While the old standards sugar and lemon, various jams or savoury ham and cheese are available, there's also an Australian twist. Vegemite crpes are available, with added cheese for a heartier lunch.

The crpes are served in cardboard cones, making the egg options prone to falling apart at the bottom. Pull the crpe up as you eat to avoid this problem. The nearby benches are comfortable and surrounded by enough greenery to make eating there a pleasure. Although Crpes la Carte does not offer coffee, the KereKere caf is close enough to get your caffeine fix.

Crpes la Carte is an excellent option for a sweet snack, both for students and non-students. Have a cup of tea with your crpe, sit under a tree, and enjoy the blend of French and Australian culture.
