‘Creffles’ Challenge Cronuts in New Stanton Street Cafe
This image has been archived or removed.
When owner (and Elmhurs resident) Al Tak first told us about his new cafe at 115 Stanton Street last month, it carried the moniker “Green and Brown,” named for the coffee bean havest-to-roast process. However, it’s since been renamed after its signature confectionary.
The Creffle Cafe doles the standard fare alongside the namesake dessert concoction called the “Creffle.” These treats are essentially a cross between a Belgian waffle and French crepe. They come plain or with the option of toppings.
Plain creffles will run you $4.95; toppings are 50 cents each. The bacon and cheese creffle costs $6.95, and the meatball and pork belly options are $11 and $10, respectively.
Thanks to Dominique Ansel and his culinary mashups (i.e. Cronuts), everyone is jumping on the proverbial bandwagon. Let’s not forget the Bruffin Cafe currently in the works at Delancey.
