I popped in Sunday afternoon on the sunday just gone (22nd May 2022) around 12:30. I stood were it recommeneded to stand to wait for service and I was waiting a few minutes, which was no big deal as I was looking at the menu...on the wall on my left. There was no customers there, which is normal sometimes. Two young girls walked out, with one carrying food that she placed on a table infront of me with other food and then the other stood behind the counter. I said in a friendly manner 'I thought you may be closed' she said smiled condescendingly 'I'm making food for an event' turned around and walked back into the kitchen. The girl behind the bar (with a face like thunder) then followed her, walked straight past me without saying a word! with me still standing there! (if the cafe was closed, couldnt they say that in a nice manner!?) I then walked out and went to a different cafe where my friends met me for food and drinks.More

Thanks to the team for a fantastic afternoon tea delivery this week. We had scones with fresh fruit and cream, sandwiches and cakes / pastries and they were all great quality.

Really great quality afternoon tea delivered to our house for the family; loads of food, a range of sandwiches and sweet treats and the children loved the small pots of chocolate spread. In my view, there could have been half the amount of clotted cream,...jam and chocolate spread in the delivery and it would still have been enough (although some other people may disagree if they like their scones particularly well loaded). To improve, it would have been good to know in advance that the 6 giant croissants would be filled with ham and cheese so I could've asked for some non meat ones. Other than that, a hit all round. Thank you Crepe Escape, great value and delivered on the button as requested.More

We have tried many afternoon teas in penarth and this is easily the best! Lovely, tasty sandwiches, all home made cakes and incredible scones (two per person!) with real clotted cream. So,so tasty, beautifully presented and served by the most fab waitress. 10/10 guys! Don't...eat breakfast before you go. We were very, very impressed!More

Delicious breakfast. Kids loved it! We had sweet waffles, savoury crepe and Eggs Benedict. The service was good and we would recommend.

Visited today for a late lunch and the whole experience was awful from the food to one staff member possibly the manager. We ordered 3 crepes they were terrible, one was cold, one with goats cheese was just chunks of cheese not melted which didn’t...work and the third with dry horrible tuna. Seemed like they were more interested in sending stuff out to be set up on their food stand at their local display than look after their current customers and the ‘manager’ if it was didn’t look up from his laptop the whole time or even check if our food was ok.More

As the Crepe Escape in Mermaid Quay has closed down, we thought we'd venture out to the one in Penarth. The cafe is nice and bright and it was a lovely treat having crepes for breakfast. The customer service was also good.

The crepes were amazing thank you. Also with Gluten free options which were very tasty and looked like the normal pancakes. Staff were very friendly and accommodating. Dogs were welcome too. I would have given 5 stars but for the following comment. Try and time...your visit for when it’s quiet as the venue is echoey and I struggled to hear my children as it was extremely busy. As it was Summer hols there were lots of parties of small children there who were excited and obviously a little noisy and because of the venue, their noises echoed and it was very loud. I had children with me and they found it too noisy for them and wanted to leave. I think we may have timed our visit wrong. That being said we will definitely visit again even if it’s to get a takeaway.More
