Krug Kreperie – Covent Garden

Champagne and Crepes at the Krug Kreperie Pop-up:

It’s Christmas at Covent Garden and the seasonal decorations are all out on display.  Tucked away behind Rudoph there are some curious little cabins that you might miss if you don’t know the treats they hold.  The Krug Kreperie offers shoppers and passers by the chance to indulge in a spirit lifting glass of Krug champagne and a delicious crepe.

Krug Kreperie - and Rudolph

A unique collaboration between Pierre Koffmann and Krug champagne, The Krug Kreperie is open in the heart of Covent Garden for the first week of December only  (2nd – 8th) before moving to Koffmann’s at The Berkeley, which will play host to the Kreperie through the months of December and January.
Krug Kreperie - the offer
Pierre Koffmann has designed six crepes in total – three sweet and three savory including a Caramel, Apple Crumble crepe and a Crepe Suzette. Passers-by can  enjoy the gourmet crepes paired with a glass of Krug Grand Cuvée for £35.
The crepes are freshly made – the champagne brought to your table.  You can relax and unwind after a hard day’s shopping, or just indulge yourself.
Krug Kreperie - first pancake
I particularly liked the kitch cabins.  A cross between a rustic log cabin you might find in the forest and a decadent French brasserie, you’ll be sitting under a chandelier, on a banquette with under seat heating (!) fluffy sheepskin rugs and woollen throws to wrap up in.

Each cabin seats six to eight diners.  A great place to sit and people watch – you can even enjoy an extra glass of Krug …and why not?  after all Christmas only comes once a year
Krug Kreperie - inside
I went along for the launch and enjoyed my chilled champagne, warm bottom and delicious 24 month old aged Parmesan crepe – the inspiration of Pierre Koffman himself.  Mind you, I’d have been tempted to enjoy La Suzette, the Orange, Lemon and sugar retro special with a little cognac and rum if I’d been able to stay any longer.

Well worth treating yourself…the Krug Kreperie is in Covent Garden for this week only.

    I do know and love Covent Garden..I wish I could have been there for the moment with you. Lovely!

  2. I saw this in the paper the other day. I *love* the kitsch cabins… but £35 for a crepe and a glass of bubbly?! :o) The mind boggles, especially when you think what else you could be eating for that price in London!

  3. Beautiful idea! Every detail of the experience sounds perfect!

  4. it’s killing me that I can’t get to these places. Wow!
