Restaurant Feature: Vivel Crepes & Coffee
Vivel Crepes & Coffee is a fabulous restaurant located in downtown Lakeway. While their name says crepes and coffee, they also have a huge menu with a variety of delicious sandwiches, salads, gourmet burgers, desserts and more. My favorite crepe so far is the S’Mores crepe that comes loaded with Nutella, marshmallows, pecans, graham crackers, chocolate and caramel sauce. A must try! I am also obsessed with their Vivel Salad. It is so fresh and delicious and the portions are huge. It’s even better when you add chicken!
Vivel describes itself as “Inspired by the walk-up crêperie stands and sidewalk cafés that line the streets of Paris, Cotê d’Azure and Brittany, Vivel brings the same passions and flavors of France and the real French crepe to Austin. One bite and all you’ll be missing is the Eiffel Tower!”
Their motto is “Celebrating Life Everyday”. They also have a unique story in how they got started.
“We were introduced to the crepe culture not only in France but also other western European and Mediterranean countries. Our love of crepes and coffee became irreversible and we opened our first crepe café in Maui, Hawaii in 2001. Five years later we moved inland and opened a location in Houston, TX and now have a café in Lakeway in the Austin, TX area.
Crepes were considered peasant food in 15th century Brittany. At Vivel we’ve kept some of those traditional recipes and employed the same time-honored techniques, but we’ve added modern flair and flavor. Everything we do has been carefully crafted for our customers to experience nothing less than the best.
We have high standards when it comes to our food. We believe in maintaining the soul of our crepes and coffee, but we have also believe in originality and most importantly quality. Give us a try and we’re sure you’ll agree.”
