In 2006, the original Silver Moon Crêperie opened in Dover, New Hampshire. At that time, we were New Hampshire's first of it's kind crêpe cafe. As a husband and wife team, we ran the shop exclusively for 7 years. In 2013, to escape the harsh New England winters (and longing for a pleasant change of scenery) we packed up our shop and moved to Portland, Oregon, where the crêperie is now located on 4220 N Mississippi Avenue.
Our goal has always been to provide a tasty, affordable and unique dining experience. We are very casual and family/kid friendly. You simply order at the counter, and everything is brought out to you. Here, you will not find the conventional beret wearing waiter or trinkets from Paris, just delicious, expertly prepared crêpes made before your eyes and happy smiles all around. Children love to stand at the window and watch their crêpes being made.
Crêpes are thin pancakes that originated in the northwest region of France called Brittany, but now found throughout the world. Our house-made crêpe batter contains a unique blend of flours and is made from scratch daily. Every crêpe is made-to-order and folded with your choice of either sweet or savory ingredients. In addition to our regular (wheat) batter, we also offer gluten-free (buckwheat) and vegan (chickpea) batters at no additional charge.
Assorted beverages are available: imported sodas, fresh-brewed “strong” coffee, assorted teas, housemade masala chai, espresso drinks, fresh fruit smoothies and fresh, made-to-order juice. We also offer our signature mango mimosas, wines by the glass, as well as three local hard ciders on tap.
We accept all major credit cards and cash. Gift certificates are available upon request.
Hope to see you soon!
