“Sweet or savory - your choice!”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

Reeling from the price of food in Alaska? Wander over to the food shacks behind the Juneau Public Library/waterfront and stop at Alaskan Crepe Escape for a less expensive meal alternative in a savory crepe or treat yourself to a a satisfying dessert. The selections are extensive and as I listened to people order and then taste the offerings, I didn't hear a single complaint. I made repeated trips with a friend. I like the basics, such as a Nutella crepe one time and Nutella with strawberries another, while my friend went with a savory offering (Gastineau with smoked salmon). It can be a bit of a wait. They did mention that you can call ahead to order, but I'd rather just hang out and people watch. There are a few tables under a tarp, but I enjoyed eating mine on the go or heading farther down along the waterfront and finding a table to eat there. Prices ranged $4.50-7.75 for sweet crepes and $6.50-9.95 for savory crepes. I'll post a photo of the menu so you can get the idea, but it includes ones with vegetarian offerings as well as those with cheese, BBQ chicken, beef and bean taco, and pulled pork. If that's not enough, add a smoothie or coffee.

“Great hidden gem in Juneau”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

Got off of our cruise ship and were looking for something different to eat. Our family loves crepes and found this little stand outside of where the cruise ships come in. We loved it.

Great variety of savory and sweet crepes. We split three of them

Taco crepe
Apple pie crepe
Lemon crepe

All were great!

Best part is they were cheap, some of them in the $4 range. I even told the two women working there that they were underpricing their crepes and could be getting twice as much as they were charging.

Look for it, its worth the wait!

“Very Tasty!!”
Reviewed 19 April 2014

This crepe stand is almost always crowded so there might be a wait, but don't let that deter you. The crepes are light and fluffy and the fillings are hot and plentiful. The people working there are always super nice, too.

“This crepe stand alone makes Juneau worthwhile!”
Reviewed 29 September 2013

We discovered this crepe stand on our recent visit to Juneau and ended up having one breakfast, one lunch, and two dinners from them! They have dessert crepes, and vegetarian or meat-filled main-course crepes, all prepared fresh as you wait. They serve them on-the-paper-plate at their very limited seating under a tent, or you can get them "to go", shaped into a flat wedge, which is easy to hold. The salmon-and-cream-cheese crepe is delicious! The Greek is harder to hold (the feta can spill out) but the egg-crepes are very filling. We tried various dessert crepes - who knew that peanut-butter, Nutella, and bananas could taste so good? All this and reasonable prices too. In our view, the best dining in Juneau! We echo the desire expressed by another Reviewer that they should make Grand Marnier crepes, but this is Alaska and the liquor laws are probably too strict for that. Too bad.
