Recently I went to Crepes & Burgers in Folsom, California. I’ve driven through the greater Folsom area several times now, and I always seem to gravitate here.
Now I’m not sure if you can classify it as a diner, but it’s close enough. There are now 3 locations in Citrus Heights, Fair Oaks, and their newest location in Folsom. It’s quickly become one of my more favorite Northern California dining spots. It’s an easy take-out spot, and food can be ready in 15 minutes. Since it’s roughly 90 minutes from my house, it’s a great spot if I don’t want to wait to eat back in Napa.
Crepes & Burgers Atmosphere: A
The Crepes & Burgers is a modern-style diner/restaurant. Most are located at outdoor malls (versus stand-alone restaurants). Therefore, their cursive handwriting sign stands out from the other restaurants.
When you walk in, it’s one giant room where you can take your order at the front. Like fast food. Behind the hottest is a full-sized coffee bar. It almost looks like a coffee shop behind there.
After ordering, you have a seat wherever you would like. I’ve been to both the Folsom and Fair Oaks, and each has an outdoor or dining patio as well. I enjoy the neat and fun handwriting with the menu items.
There are several tables, and everything is spread out.
Crepes & Burgers Coffee: X
Despite going a few times now, I have yet to order coffee. It’s been either an extremely hot day, or I don’t love drinking coffee as takeout. (and I’m not an iced coffee fan at all).
Crepes & Burgers Food: A
I’ve been to Crepes and Burgers a few times and ordered something different each time. At this point, I’ve tried the Pesto Crepe, Fuji salad, and the Habanero Burger. They have a little bit of everything, and it’s not just crepes or burgers.
You can order soup, salad, pasta, eggs, pancakes, and sandwiches too. It took me a while to figure out the “stacks” were actually pancakes. You can see the full Crepes & Burgers menu here.
The Pesto Crepe contains provolone, onions, marinated chicken breast, pesto, mushrooms & tomatoes. The Fuji apple salad has mixed greens, caramelized walnuts, gorgonzola cheese, and fuji apples tossed in glazed balsamic vinaigrette. The Habanero Burger contains Fiscalini habanero Jack cheese, bacon, lettuce, tomato, red onions, habanero mayo.
Next, I have my eyes on a dessert crepe like the cinnamon roll. I haven’t had one of those in years.
Everything I’ve tried has been good, and I have nothing I didn’t really “like.”
Crepes & Burgers Service: A
I’ve both dined and done take-out, and the service has been friendly. The food had come out quickly or been ready when I arrived. In addition, I’ve gone during COVID times, and the staff has all taken protocols such as wearing a mask and social distancing. In all, it’s been a great experience.
Crepes generally cost between $13-15, burgers $15-17, and salads between $12-16.
Overall Thoughts/Would I come Back to Crepes & Burgers?
I’ve really enjoyed my experiences at Crepes & Burgers, and when I’m in the area, I will be back. It’s a great local chain across the Northern Sacramento area, and I highly suggest it if you’re in the area.
