|Chocolate and Strawberry Crepe at Sara's Crepe Cafe|
Sara's Crepe Cafe in Saint Augustine, Florida. The newly opened restaurant is already attracting a faithful following along with happy tourists who just happen to drop in.
And, no wonder. Margarita Abramov, Proprietor, has opened a cheerful, inviting shop and assembled an outstanding and dedicated staff. Chef Matt Shapiro runs the kitchen with professional aplomb, as if he'd been perfecting the process for years. Assistant DJ is as enthusiastic as flaming cherries jubilee. These two are on the path to crepe celebrity stardom.
St. Augustine as the Fountain of Youth. She has it all: charm, personality, warmth and spunk. Her energy flows not at a trickle, but at full gush. She will make this cafe a standout for locals and tourists alike.
Menu prices are reasonable enough to attract Flagler College coeds, yet the presentations please the business folk. Sara's offers a healthy fast food alternative, a to-go version of a crepe, held in paper similar to a wrap. Another plus--all of the crepes can be prepared gluten-free.
Best of all, the establishment opens at 8:00 am for breakfast and stays in operation through the evening hours for dining, dessert and drinks. Sara's serves beer and wine, too.

Margarita's new restaurant is already a hot spot (yes, it was sweltering outside) but I predict Sara's atmosphere and crepes will warm the heart and stomach even on a blustery day.
