A look at Long Beach Island, NJ
UPDATE – 2020 – Due to the Covid-19 restrictions, Creperie de la Mer is offering takeout only.
Our breakfast at the Creperie de la Mer had to be one of the best breakfasts we have had on or off the island.
We wanted to have Crepes for breakfast on a Saturday in early July 2020. They opened at 8 am. I called in an order for three Monte Christos and a Brie and Pear as well as 3 French Pressed coffees They said the order would be ready in about 10 minutes.
We headed down and our order was ready for pickup as promised. There is no indoor seating and they have a temporary takeout counter set up just inside the door.
The only change was that the crepes are flat for easier packaging and transport.
I’ll be glad when they can reopen the indoor seating but the takeout was definitely worthwhile.
A husband and wife team, who learned the culinary arts in France, run the Creperie de la Mer. As the name implies, they specialize in crepes which are simply magnificent. They offer a good selection of sweet and savory crepes.
I opted for the Monte Cristo, a sweet crepe with a sunny side up egg, Virginia smoked ham, Gruyère and Vermont Cheddar Cheese and a strawberry compote. Oh, and maple syrup.
My Girlfriend tried the Brie, pear, raspberry vinagarette and walnut crepe.
They serve French Press coffee.
Plan your visit as the restaurant is small. There are about 3 two person tables and one six person table. If weather permits, they set up some limited al fresco / sidewalk seating.
Be patient. In 2018, they had 2 crepe griddles. The chef hand crafts each crepe which means a little bit of a wait but the final result is definitely worth it. For more information, visit their website
They are located in the heart of Beach Haven therefore parking can be a little challenging. However, there will usually be spots available within a block or so in the morning hours.
PRO TIP – Arrive early during the summer season.
