Description: The Belmont Bistro (Formerly The Village Creperie) is tucked away in the heart of cozy Belmont Village, just minutes from downtown Waterloo. Service is friendly, casual and light-hearted. The Belmont is a family run restaurant, with approachable staff and a friendly feel, you will be right at home in this unique spot.White tablecloths create an atmosphere of relaxed sophistication. Sit along one of the old-fashioned church benches to have a snack and a glass of wine, a pint of the feature brew at one of the seats along the large Granite bar, a classy dinner date or relaxed brunch at one of our tables. We offer wines from many regions,cocktails and more. Chef Brandon Gries, a graduate of The Stratford Chefs School changes the menu every week. He enjoys making a wide range of International and North American classics, and takes pride in creating playful and crowd-pleasing dishes of his own. Enjoy something off of the small plate menu at dinner, or the ever-changing chalkboard of entree specials. On weekends, The Belmont serves traditional brunch items with a playful twist, and also stays true to the Creperie roots with classic Buckwheat Galettes. The Belmont serves lunch during the week and the menu is full of a variety of Lunch Crepes,salads and other Bistro fare.

“Crepes like I've never had them before!”
Reviewed 1 December 2012

I'm not sure what to say other than delicious dinner crepes and desserts! Atmosphere is much nicer inside than I thought it would be based on the exterior of the restaurant. Service was great as well! Price I found to be a bit high but the great food made up for it. Our dinner for 4 was $140 but that included 3 beers and a glass of wine.

Right next to Big John's subs another favourite of mine is this little piece of heaven. Many varieties of Crepes with good service and friendly staff and reasonable prices. A nice place to go on a weekend for nice meal.

“One of our favourites”
Reviewed 15 September 2012

This is a great little place to have a nice evening out. It's small, it has good food, it's quiet. It's not exactly the best place to bring the kids.

The food here is very well executed. I've tried most of the entree menu and it's all very well done. The secret here is the specials. I never order from the menu any more, I stick almost exclusively to the board. I'm not a dessert type so I haven't tried too many dishes from their sweet crepes, but the carrot cake was excellent without being too heavy.

Service is usually pretty good, but it depends on the individual.

Price is what you would expect from an upper mid-scale restaurant.

“A Gem You Must Visit!”
Reviewed 8 July 2012

Village Creperie is a wonderful neighbourhood restaurant that is well worth the visit. We have dined for dinner, lunch and Saturday breakfast several times and have never been disappointed. Food is always creatively prepared and well executed. It's always a surprise to read the features listed on the chalkboard. This family owned diner has the best salads and crepes in town. If you are lucky, you might even be able to try the fish tacos; they are fantastic. Reasonable wine list and great new brews to try. Saturday breakfast is unbelievable! Give the Village Creperie a visit!

“Fresh & Wholesome”
Reviewed 6 May 2012

We have been going to this little jewel since it opened. Family owned.

Never fails to impress and always dependable for a wonderful meal.

Salads could not be any fresher then if you picked the ingredients and made it yourself.
Their crepes are buckwheat and if you have any sensitivity to gluten this is the place for you.

Best coffee in town!!

They have become part of "our" family!!!

Don't miss out on a cute little place! You'll go back!!
