This last weekend, I was lucky enough to happen upon a great little place with my clients. It is called the Village Coffee Shop & Crêperie and not only does it serve great coffee and specialty beverages, but it also is an outstanding crêperie.
We were headed to grab a quick cup of coffee and a snack and happened to see this sign on the side of Cave Creek Road. Feeling adventurous and always looking to support a local business owner, we turned into Stagecoach Village. (Stagecoach Village is a newer development right off the main drag in the town of Cave Cave Creek. It is super charming in that it is new, but designed to look like an old Western town.)
We pulled up and entered the shop. The owner greeted us warmly and walked us through their offerings. (As an aside, the small shop smelled delicious!) We ended up getting a specialty coffee and hot tea. For food, my client decided to take advantage of one of the delicious crêpes they had to offer. Since it was close to lunchtime, he picked the Dijon chicken savory crêpe which includes chicken, cheese, tomatoes, romaine lettuce and a dijon mustard sauce. He thought it was delicious and had just the right amount of food and fillings.
I was so excited that we had decided to stop in here, because the owner could not have been nicer and their products were great.
The crêpe menu is quite deep. For instance, on the sweet side, they have offerings like peaches and cream, bananas foster, zesty lemon, strawberry apple, and the ever so traditional Nutella. On the savory side, they have a Caesar salad crêpe, raspberry chicken, vegetable crêpe and more.
If you are a breakfast person, they also have a number of offerings. Some choices include egg and cheese, or egg and cheese with a breakfast meat, vegetarian with spinach and cheese and more. They also offer a seasonal fruit cup.
What’s interesting is that if you are not a crepe person, they are happy to make any of their offerings into a crêpe-free salad. They also offer gluten-free crêpes for those folks with gluten intolerance.
All said, there are about 21 sweet crêpe offerings, around 7 savory choices and about another 7 different choices for breakfast crêpes. Needless to say, there is definitely something to please everybody.
I’m so pleased I found The Village Coffee Shop in Cave Creek. It is such a great addition to the community and I look forward to going back many times and working my way through the many crêpes and coffees they have to offer.
