We were back to Long Island City, looking for a place to have lunch and found Café Triskell, a French crêperie coming straight from Brittany from where the owner, Philippe Fallait is from. And I have to say that it felt like a little corner of France, miles away.

We were there for crêpes and did not even consider any other dishes, although I regretted not ordering the escargots that the table next to us were eating with much pleasure. No, we went for their buckwheat crêpes. Jodi chose the pear, aged goat cheese, honey (without almonds) one, that was served with a small salad.

I went for the ham, egg and cheese.

Both crêpes were delicious, very slightly crispy. In Jodi's crepe, I loved the combination of the sweet and savory. With mine, it was quite a classic crepe, very good, with a perfectly made sunny side egg, but I wish there was a bit more ham. Despite this, I would recommend it.

For dessert, we both got the butter and sugar crepe that was fantastic: sweet, very buttery and delightfully crispy. 

We had a great lunch at Café Triskell and I would definitely go back there as I think it is one of the best crêperies in New York, staying very classic and not trying to make crazy combinations. I surely recommend it  

Enjoy (I did)!
