Sip Tea and Nibble a Crepe at Four Leaf

April 22, 2015 9:00 am

Four Leaf specializes in Japanese crepes, which combine the traditional French food with Japanese ingredients like sweetened taro paste, green tea ice cream, mochi, and red bean paste. Enjoy sweet or savory crepes, including meat and vegetarian options. If you’re in the mood for a sweet crepe, try the popular I Never Drink Wine, the Garden of Eden, the berry parfait, or the sweet velvet. Savory crepes include the Green Heel Lady, the Smoking Bird, the caprese, the My County Fair, the Corny Tuna, or the Moody Cow.

Four Leaf also serves a variety of tea and coffee drinks. Customer favorites include chrysanthemum tea, osmanthus tea, and Thai iced tea. While the crepes here are said to be tasty, regulars admit that seating at Four Leaf is limited, and parking in the area can be hard to find, so make sure you allow some extra time.
