There aren’t many options around the Wichita area to eat crepes. Only a handful of places serve them and with the closing of Keeper of the Crepes, I set out to try other eateries that had them on their menu. During my search, I came across The Cool Crepe. It’s a small business set up inside The Coop in Derby, KS.
If you’ve never been to The Coop, it’s a shared space for home bakers and other various startups. The Cool Crepe is just one of those businesses operating out of there.

The Cool Crepe offers sweet and savory crepes. It’s important to note their savory crepes are made with gluten-friendly buckwheat which gave the crepes a slightly harder and flakier texture when you cut into it.
I ordered a sweet crepe with berry compote and a savory crepe with ham, bacon, turkey, cheese and a side of Dijon mustard. It took maybe 7-10 minutes to make as there was an order ahead of me.
Between the two crepes, I much preferred the sweet crepe. It was incredibly fluffy, easy to cut into and delicious. The berry compote gave it a jelly-like interior that made for a perfect breakfast.
The savory crepe wasn’t bad by any means. It really just came down to personal preference on how I enjoy my crepes. I’m no model of healthy eating and the buckwheat wasn’t for me. Don’t get me wrong, I highly enjoyed all the breakfast ingredients included within. But when I am eating crepes, I want them as fluffy as possible. The grainy harder texture was something I wasn’t accustomed to but it’s also something that didn’t deter me from finishing the entire thing.
All in all, I still enjoyed my breakfast with The Cool Crepe. Aside from a minor accounting issue in checking out, I’d definitely go again and would solidly recommend it to others.
