RENO, Nev. (KOLO) - Kaffe Crepe has become a local favorite, by focusing on just one type of food.

“A crepe is sort of like a pancake, but just much thinner,” said owner and chef Jana Sikk.

It’s kind of like a tortilla mixed with an omelette, where it is filled with either sweet or savory ingredients.

“It’s sort of a like a sandwich in Europe,” continued Sikk, who is from Estonia.

It’s a street food, that has been elevated here in Reno. Their best seller is the California Breakfast.

“It’s eggs, bacon, cheddar cheese and tomatoes, avocado and spinach,” explained Sikk. “All the classics.”

And for those who like things sweet, try the Nutella one.

“You never go wrong with Nutella,” added Sikk. “It’s always banana, strawberries and Nutella. We also have other berries, like blueberries or raspberries.”

Kaffe Crepe has five stars on Yelp, and was just named one of the top creperies in the country. Yelp also ranked it as one of the “Top 100 Places to Eat” back in 2019.

“We were surprised because we don’t watch all those things,” admitted Sikk. “Like we don’t really pay attention, we just cook it. And yeah it was a shock.”

They also have a full coffee bar; the only place in Northern Nevada that serves “Peerless Coffee and Tea”, which was named the 2019 Roaster of the Year. But it’s the specialty food that keep everyone coming back.

“It’s just because we cook everything here in the store, and we’re making our own batter from scratch,” said Sikk. “And I think that is the big difference, is the quality.”

Kaffe Crepe is located in the Costco Shopping Center at 1300 East Plumb Lane. It’s open every day from 8 a.m. - 4 p.m. You can get more information by clicking the link below.
