Harbour Rocks Hotel, one of AccorHotels flagship MGallery hotels has transformed what was once an antique souvenir shop into a vintage-inspired, French themed creperie which has taken The Rocks locals and foodies by storm.

With interiors styled by Sibella Court, crepe hot plates brought in from Paris and Double Roasters coffee beans from Marrickville, Creperie Suzette is an artisans go-to for quality galettes, crepes and coffee in a rustic setting in the heart of The Rocks

Creperie Suzette has seven savoury and seven sweet crepes to choose from and all of the ingredients are sourced from local suppliers. Buckwheat flour is used for the batter, maximising taste and nutritional content, and Pepe Saya butter, free range eggs and hand-harvested sea salt make up the remaining core batter ingredients.

Signature galettes include La Tasmanienne which comes with smoked Tasmanian salmon, capers, crème fraiche and fresh dill, and La Biquette consisting of goats cheese, fresh pesto, vine ripened tomatoes and rocket. Galette prices range from $12-$15.

The sweet tooths can rest easy knowing Nutella crepes are on the menu, along with La Caramel au Beurre Salé – crepe with salted caramel, slivered almonds and ice cream, and La Crème de Marrons – crepes with freshly made chestnut cream. Crepe prices range from $9-$12.

General Manager for Harbour Rocks Hotel, Dylan Cole, said since opening Creperie Suzette there has been a steady stream of people lining up for their morning coffee and lunch time galette. “It has been a vision of our owners Bob and Ruth Magid to turn the old souvenir shopfront into an intimate space which can be enjoyed by guests of Harbour Rocks Hotel and the local community – and what has been achieved is nothing short of perfection. It is not only the surrounds which people love, it is the quality of the crepes and galettes which is seeing return visitors. One of our missions was to focus on quality, locally sourced produce and authentic service and it is great to see so many people enjoying what we’ve created.”
