Casse-Crepe Breton, Quebec

We left Ottawa and headed for Quebec City for the next 3 nights.  We checked into Loews le Concorde and had our cuppa first before we decide what to do next.

The hotel is rather nice, however the bed is positioned into a rather tight area and there was a beam running right in the middle as we look up from our bed. Well, I suppose it's cosy ...

Bro in law said that we should have dinner at Casse-Crepe Breton, supposedly one of the famous places for crepes in Quebec.  We arrived at Rue St Jean (St Jean Street) amidst a slight drizzle only to be greeted by a queue outside Casse-Crepe Breton.

This was just the beginning...we joined the line and ended up waiting for about an hour and 15 minutes before we got a table!  All this while, we muttered under our breath that the wait better be worthed it.

and what can I do while waiting? Take photos through the windows, of course....hahaha...Note how close the distance is  from the window to the bar counter!

The front section of the restaurant is a rather small area, not much room for group gathering for sure! Luckily we got a table for the four of us in the back section which was bigger (but not that much bigger).

Err...note how messy the work area is....

Fresh Strawberries Crepe
I decided to head straight for a dessert crepe, $4.50 - fresh strawberries! Yay...

Bacon & Mushroom Crepe
Whereas the rest opted for savoury ones....bacon and mushrooms

I opened the crepe to see the ingredients inside.  I must say that they are rather generous with the fillings.  This two ingredients crepe is at $5.

Well, was the wait worth it? I would say no....maybe we waited too long and got tired to fully appreciate the crepes placed before us.  The crepes tasted pretty normal for a place that is well known for it. I enjoyed the fillings (strawberries were indeed fresh) more than the crepe itself :o)
