A&E Hangouts: Crepes of Wrath offers both savory and sweet crepes

By MIA ARANDA

Crepes of Wrath is a business located in Downtown Redlands that serves delicious, sweet and savory crepes. While wrath means fierce anger, it is vital to know before coming to Crepes of Wrath that the crepes are not angry, instead are quite enjoyable.

Crepes of Wrath offers many combinations of ingredients that are crafted into a crepe. Although savory crepes are $11 each, which might sound pricy for a dessert, they can actually be considered a meal due to the large size and the meats inside it. Types of savory crepes offered here include Alfredo, made with chicken, spinach, parmesan and alfredo, or Thanksgiving, with turkey, gravy, cranberry and stuffing. If you are looking for a dessert rather than a light meal, sweet crepes are the perfect alternative. Costing $9 each, sweet crepes contain fruits, such as strawberries, bananas and apples, as well as fillings like Nutella, honey and peanut butter; however, the price of sweet crepes can be slightly expensive due to the minimal toppings.

Here is Crepes of Wrath’s menu consisting of both sweet and savory crepes as of Sept. 15, 2018. If you don’t want the crepes already put together, you can always make your own by choosing a batter, filling, and meat or fruit.                                 (MIA ARANDA/ Ethic news)

If you don’t like what is on the menu, you can make your own by choosing your filling, batter, and fruit or meat.  In addition, children 12 years old and younger are able to get a $9 savory crepe and a $7 sweet crepe as a smaller portion.

Crepes of Wrath, like many other shops in Downtown Redlands, has a small shop, so it tends to get crowded quickly. While there is no seating, there is a counter where you can stand and enjoy your crepe directly outside. If you don’t want to stand or possibly eat in the sun, Orange Street Alley is available to walk to with Instagram worthy murals and umbrellas hanging from wires above for decoration along with seating.

Their customer service is outstanding because the employees are always friendly. The only other negative is that they occasionally blast explicit music without a care for their customers waiting inside, creating an unprofessional atmosphere.

My overall rating for this business is a 4 out of 5 due to their explicit music choice and lack of outdoor seating directly outside.

The small wooden building is often looked past due to a couple of trash cans in front of the business and the bold “WE BUY GOLD” sign to the right of the orange Crepes of Wrath sign, making the eatery look even smaller than it already is.
