After visiting The Pinckney Island National Wildlife Refuge, my family and I had walked up quite an appetite. Since we are all true breakfast lovers, we decided to give The French Bakery and European Cuisine Restaurant a try. Parking was ample, since this restaurant is located in Shelter Cove, with multiple other dining establishments, shops and attractions. There were multiple parties outside of the cafe, but we were seated quickly inside. If you are hoping to snag a table outside on the patio, you might have to wait a little longer during peak hours.
We ordered up cafe drinks, as well as crepes. Our coffee came quickly, and was exactly as expected. I ordered a cafe mocha, and it was beautifully presented and delectable to drink – the perfect temperature, with a wonderful light foam.
Our crepes were also divine, but I must admit, I am particularly spoiled by my authentic creperie at home. Regardless, the nutella crepe, which also stars strawberries, was light and fluffy, beautifully plated, a good size (for a crepe, so don’t be expecting American portions) and absolutely hit the spot for a satisfying but not overly heavy breakfast.
We had a very long day of adventuring ahead of us, since we planned to visit Savannah, GA, so none of us wanted to go into a food coma! If I had a more relaxed day ahead, I most likely would have also grabbed some treats from the bakery case, which featured beautiful macaroons, croissants, muffins and cakes.
Finding creperies has become a little bit of a travel tradition for us, and the French Bakery and European Cuisine did not disappoint. I know that if I come back to visit Hilton Head, this is one of the places I would definitely visit again, especially to stock up on a few baked treats to keep back at the condo!
