anyhow, after completing our study quotas today at Robart's, S (new food buddy!) and i met up with C and we went to eat a simple dinner. with time to spare and craving something sweet, we decided that we'd try a newcrêpe place that opened up in north york recently. for people unfamiliar with the dessert, a crêpe is a very thin type of pancake orginating from france that is comprised of flour, eggs, milk, butter and a bit of salt. crêpes come with a variety of textures as well as a relatively neutral taste, making them a very flexible dessert to eat. depending on their egg to flour ratio, a crêpe can be either pliable and slightly crispy, or pancake-like. in this sense, a crêperie can be of 2 settings; a take-away restaurant that serves crêpes as a sort of 'fast-food' delicacy, or a formal sit-down café.
located along yonge and close to finch, the dessert house has a very simple exterior design consisting of sage green neon lighting and a honey-oak-on-maple wood backdrop, and pops out quite distinctively from the surrounding dull-silver stores. the interior is also designed and furnished quite aesthetically, with its high ceilings, honey-oak-on-maple wood cupboards and tables, as well as stark white walls and seats. pastel's simplistic yet cozy approach on design makes it a versatile setting to be either a comfortable place to simply sit around and chat over a warm beverage, or a suitable romantic after-dinner destination for lovers on a date.
