Cider is the traditional drink to pair with crépes, so in true French style – Joe is offering just that. Cargo Crepe has authentic French cider as well as traditional Yorkshire cider or alternatively how about a glass of lovely French wine. Cargo Crepe gives an embodiment of a hybrid with every feature showing French origins, but with a Yorkshire twist.
So, how did it all begin? The inspiration behind Cargo Crepe comes from Joe’s travels through Brittany in France, where he fell in love with all things crepe. Brittany is the crépe and galette capital in France, so after he’d discovered his passion, he decided to return to France to train at crépe school and become a master of the art.
After graduating from crepe school he opened his first créperie, La Galette, where he fed the people of Marylebone in London with crépes and galettes for four years. As he was originally born in Yorkshire, he decided to take to the road and serve up street food style on a cargo bike at festivals and events in Yorkshire. Now he has made his cargo bike a permanent location in Queen’s Arcade to give the people of Leeds the opportunity to be bitten by the créperie bug in the city centre at Cargo Crepe.
If you’re in the mood for something to remind you of French holidays or just fancy a budget friendly, uber healthy and tasty bite to eat, head to Cargo Crepe in Queen’s Arcade. They are open Wednesday through to Sunday from 10.00AM till 5.00PM for brunch, lunch, tea & snacks – to eat in or take away.
Just to add the icing on the crepe, if you show your IL Black Card, you can choose an extra topping (sweet or savoury) for free!
So what are you waiting for? Don’t take our word for it, head down yourself and say ‘Hi” to Joe. Feel free to let us know what you think, we know you won’t be disappointed…
