CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (UTC/TheLoop) — A taste of French cuisine came to Chattanooga, Tenn. on Aug. 27.  Crêpe á Delic, a traditional crêperie, was opened by Thompson Galetovic in the North Shore District.

The atmosphere of the quaint restaurant is distinctly European.  Unique local art hangs on the walls while café tables await customers outside. Beautiful stained glass doors line the back wall of the building.

Galetovic describes his restaurant as French cuisine redefined. His love for crêpes began at a young age and grew when he toured Europe with his family.

His idea for a crêpe-based restaurant was sparked by his enjoyment for preparing crêpes for friends and family. He admits the thin French pancakes have always been his favorite food.

“I came up with the idea for this [restaurant] and I came to Chattanooga because I thought it would really work well here. A crêpe restaurant works with the atmosphere.”

The menu at Crêpe á Delic is centered on crêpes.  Both sweet and savory batters are used to prepare the French delights.  The restaurant has a wide selection of crêpes to please any palate.

Some of Crêpe á Delic’s menu items:

  • “The Gnarly” ($5.50) – creamy peanut butter, nutella, banana
  • “Early Bird” ($6.00) – fresh scrambled eggs, cheddar cheese, and your choice of ham or bacon
  • “The Boot” ($6.50) – mountains of mozzarella, steamed spinach, chunky marinara sauce
  • “The Yo Berry” ($5.50) – refreshing yogurt, blueberries, strawberries

Galetovic plans to add new menu items soon, such as sandwiches and soups.  A dinner menu is also being considered. He promises, “We have different specials daily and weekly.”
