Need a brunch idea that’s sure to impress? Crepes are the answer. While this menu is a little more labour intensive than others that I’ve posted, it’s well worth the extra effort. Save yourself some last minute scrambling and clean and cut all your fruit the night before. I’ve only listed the fruits we used in the crepes, but you can buy whatever fruit you like or is readily available.
Crepe Brunch Menu Grocery List
- Blueberries or Saskatoon berries
- 2 lemons
- Brown sugar
- 1 banana
- Peanut Butter
- Whipping Cream or Cool Whip
- Orange Juice
You’ll want to make a large batch of the crepe recipe because your guests won’t be able to get enough. This recipe serves four hungry adults. Allow at least 30 minutes to fry up all the crepes, as it takes longer than you think. Put out 2 frying pans and get one of your guests to help you out. It goes so much faster and is a lot more fun.
Easy crepes perfect for brunch.
2 cups flour,
1 cup milk,
1 cup water,
1/2 tsp salt,
1/4 cup oil
Whisk all ingredients in a bowl and fry one at a time.
The technique to fry them takes a little bit of practice. Pour out the batter and swirl it around to make a larger circle. After you’ve done it once or twice you’ll be a pro. Don’t worry if your circles aren’t perfect. I promise you that no one will notice or care.
I made the mistake of also serving baked eggs and turkey bacon, but nobody was really interested in them once they saw the crepes.
Parisian crepes are a must try. To make them, spread brown sugar on your crepe, squeeze some fresh lemon juice and fold (don’t roll!!) your crepe. It sounds odd, but is super delicious. Here’s a little list of some of our favourite combos.

I know what I’ll be making for brunch tomorrow. Yum!!
