CrepeBerry, a new Wellesley eatery promising a diverse and healthy menu, next month plans to open in the space at 352 Washington St., that Dorset Cafe occupied for the past 10 years.
The opening should be welcome news for those hoping the space wouldn’t be filled by a chain establishment, bank or real estate office, and who welcome the infusion of health-focused food businesses, including B.Good, Thirst Juice and Cocobeet.
CrepeBerry will be unique to Wellesley, though the menu will borrow from that of the 7-seat Broken Grounds Cafe in Newton Highlands that’s been operating for the past year and half, according to Amelia Childs, who owns both businesses. (Here’s a recent Boston Globe piece on The Broken Grounds Cafe.)
“While CrepeBerry is a separate endeavor from Broken Grounds, the menu will contain many favorites from the menu, including the Egg Special Sandwich (organic egg, cheese, tomato, jalapeño, and avocado), Acai Bowls (including the Strawberry Fields: Acai blended with banana, strawberry, almond butter, topped with granola, banana, and strawberry), Avocado toast, & Smoothies with some new add ons like Waffles and, obviously, Crepes,” writes Childs, who has an educational background in the arts.
She refers to both menus as being “accessibly vegetarian” in that no fake meats are used but “even the biggest bacon eater walks away happy.”
The menu also features locally sourced coffee (Jim’s Organic), plus vegan and gluten-free offerings.
Childs says she looks forward to opening CrepeBerry in Wellesley in part because Broken Grounds already has a big following from the local high schools and colleges. For those of you in the commuter crowd, note that CrepeBerry will be open 7am-5pm Monday–Friday and 8am-4pm Saturdays and Sundays, with extended hours likely by fall.
“I am so excited to be serving Wellesley and am playing around with some fun ideas for this location including have live acoustic music for Sunday Brunch,” she says.
