YAMU – Crepe Runner Mount Lavinia – Colombo’s one-spot for crepes.

Colombo’s one-spot for crepes, the Crepe Runner finally has a properly established restaurant. Yayyy! 
 
After driving around in their humble food truck for a good year or so, they initially settled down in Street Rush Food Court, and now has moved out of it to a space of their own. 

Ambience

Located down Galle Road in Mount Lavinia, it’s a tiny space, but can easily fit about six customers at a time.

Well-lit and arranged with wooden chairs and wall tables, its interior is quite simple and has a charm of its own. 

Crepes

Crepe Runner does both sweet and savoury crepes, and makes sure to use the freshest ingredients in their fillings. Plus, they’re made to order.

Gorgeously pale gold in colour, these crepes are delicately thin, soft and have the most wonderful buttery, crispy edges. 

The Nutella, Brownie & Cadbury Combo (Rs. 500) is a heaven for any chocolate lover. Crepe Runner is known for their generosity, so you’re guaranteed to get a good dose of all of the above. 

The Peanut Butter & Nutella (Rs. 380) had the promised two elements at the right balance. If you love chocolate with an extra nutty kick, this is your best bet.

On the savoury side, here we have the Minced Beef (Rs. 400), an assortment of minced beef, cheese and herbs. The filling here is tangy, spicy, and absolutely beefy, while the mozzarella makes it all gooey.

Drinks

The drinks range at the Crepe Runner includes mojitos and milkshakes. We ordered one from each.

This refreshingly sweet Blackcurrant Mojito (Rs. 350) goes down really well with the Minced Beef Crepe. I would have preferred a little less syrup here though, but my dinner partner didn’t seem to mind it.

The Chocolate Crunch Milkshake (Rs. 400) has an extra depth of flavours to your regular chocolate milkshake, as it’s infused with bits of walnut, almonds and cashew nuts. 

 

Service

The guys manning the counter were super busy with orders, but yet managed to accommodate us with friendly vibes. Dine-in isn’t allowed at the moment due to the current pandemic, but they’re available for delivery and takeaway. 

Conclusion

If you haven’t tried Crepe Runner yet, you haven’t had the best crepes in town. They’re consistently good at what they do, and it’s one of the many reasons why we love them.
