Brunch must-have of the week: Ricotta-filled crêpes at Feast

Sweet pears and cardamom add a sophisticated flavor combination.

Sometimes brunch means dessert for breakfast.

Doug Levy, chef and owner of Feast, always delivers surprises. Levy’s bright space on Speedway is a lovely, open place with fresh flowers on every table and a smart, caring, and funny staff.

I love anything that reminds me of my Granny’s blintzes. When I saw Feast’s Crêpes (house-made ricotta, cardamom sautéed pears, lemon zest and fresh berries) for $12, I knew what was for brunch.

The three perfectly cooked crepes were folded around the rich, slightly sweet cheese. This is a grown-up crepe. It’s neither too sweet nor too heavy. The cardamom sautéed pears – with their hint of lemon zest – helped to sweeten the dish with a fruity spice.

The fresh berries were bright with a bit of crunch helped along with a crispy pear garnish. Visually speaking, it’s a beautiful dish.

As is the case with nearly everything at Feast, they’re only available for the month, so get ’em before the menu changes again.

Feast, located at 3719 E. Speedway Blvd., is open for brunch from 10 a.m. – 3 p.m. on Sundays. For more information and to view the latest menu, visit
