After much anticipation, Tacoma now has its own crepe shop, Savor Creperie. With a prime downtown location near UW Tacoma, the restaurant has seen a steady stream of customers since its opening April 18. As a new restaurant concept for Tacoma, I was thrilled to swing by and give it a try.

Savor's slogan, "Eat well, be happy" shows in its light, flavorful crepes. After ordering at the counter and seating ourselves, servers brought my husband and I drinks as we anticipated our meal. The ham, gruyere and roasted asparagus crepe with Dijon crème fraiche ($9.50) was very savory, with a zing from the Dijon sauce. Also delicious was the rosemary chicken and roasted sweet potato crepe with toasted pecans and balsamic reduction ($9.75), which was quite satisfying for dinner. To finish it off, we split a banana and toasted coconut crepe filled with Nutella ($6.50). We both lamented that we should each have ordered a sweet crepe instead of splitting it. The last bite came too soon.

Owners Tom Vigue and Vickie Black-Vigue relocated to the Pacific Northwest and were drawn to Tacoma's, "entrepreneurial spirit and welcoming energy," according to Tom, who has a background in the food industry.  "We wanted to bring a food and beverage offering to the community that was untested, yet desired," he said. "We had an opportunity to visit Europe and fell in love with crepes, both delicious and versatile. Foods like crepes can reflect, in part, a city's culture. We think that can be true of Tacoma."

From the happy customers I observed in the café and my desire to return, I think they are definitely on to something.
