The Joints: Lisa’s Creperie
From Staff Reports
Everyone has their “go-to” place to eat. It might be with linen tablecloths and waiters in ties, or where you throw peanuts on the floor and carve your initials in the wooden tables. Whatever and wherever, it’s your “joint.”
There are lots of these places around here, and we’re out to find them all in The Joints column. This month – it’s Lisa’s Creperie in downtown Senoia.
Always on the lookout for an interesting food joint, The Paper Girl insisted I try out this place known for their crépes. “Crépes,” like dessert, I asked?
That would be a yes and a no. Lisa’s Créperie has some amazing, and I do mean amazing, dessert crépes. But you’d be missing out if you didn’t try their breakfast and lunch “sandwich crépes.” Let’s just say their simple ham and cheese creépe would put your mama’s to shame and make her cry. And the “Lisa’s Crépe,” which is basically a ham crépe on steroids, is awesome. Heck, everything is.
Think of the French crépe as a cousin to an American thin pancake and step-brother to a Mexican tortilla. Just a very thin piece of goodness from a recipe handed down from Lisa’s grandmother.
And the créperie is so much more than that. The desserts and croissants and pastries are, well, diet busting but in an extravagant and enjoyable way. It is quaint, it is fun and there are even a couple of tables outside when the weather is nice.
Come support this veteran-owned joint right in the middle of downtown Senoia.
