What better way to celebrate ‘Pancake Day’ on Shrove Tuesday, than to tell you about the delicious crepes I had on my recent visit to Grand Cayman.
Crepes, better known to us in England as pancakes, are a traditional treat eaten on Shrove Tuesday. You can choose to eat them with a variety of sweet toppings such as Nutella, strawberries, whipped cream, peanut butter or bananas but I prefer the plain and simple: sugar and lemon. You can also have savoury fillings… but that’s just wrong!
During my recent cruise to the Carribean, we visited Georgetown, Grand Cayman and with a little time to spare before our shore excursion (Stingray City) we wondered across the road from the tender on the South Cruise Terminal in search of coffee and came across the aptly named Cayman Creperie.
After perusing the menu I ordered a crepe with butter, sugar and lemon with a cappuccino and I was pleasantly surprised at the beautifully presented pancake that was delivered to our outside table overlooking the port.
The Cayman Creperie is ideally situated overlooking the South Cruise Terminal at the front of the Bayshore Mall. They use locally sourced ingredients and serve Illy coffee, I cannot recommend this place enough for a relaxed start to your day on shore in Grand Cayman, watching the cruise passengers getting on and off the tenders.
Happy Pancake Day!
