You can currently find mille crepe cakes at Tendou and Inititum Co. uptown, but a new player has arrived. Following the likes of Uncle Tetsu’s, Kensington’s famous Millie Creperie has come to Markham in the form of Millie Cafe. Located at Langham Square, near Hwy 7 and Kennedy, Millie Cafe celebrated its official grand opening today!
Unsure of what a mille crepe cake is? “Mille” translates to a thousand in French; therefore, it’s exactly as it sounds – a cake that is made up of multiple layers of crepe. As a result, it offers a delicate texture and moist taste that is perfect for crepe and cake lovers alike. Millie’s crepe cakes are made fresh daily and delivered to each of their 3 locations. If you’re worried about sogginess, you won’t find it here.
This cafe is gorgeous with its light coloured walls and marble tops that scream Instagram. However, if you’re looking to sit, think again since Millie Cafe has about 10 seats. But don’t worry, taking cake to go isn’t half as bad! It comes in a gorgeous box.
We took 3 crepe cakes to go: a Matcha Crepe Cake ($7.74), a Mint Chocolate Crepe Cake, and a Rainbow Crepe Cake ($8.18). Unsurpringly, the Matcha Crepe Cake was my favourite since it is one of their signatures. I enjoyed the rich matcha taste, which melted in my mouth.
Curious about what flavour the Rainbow Crepe Cake is? For me, it just tasted like cream. Though very photogenic, I will not be ordering it again. Last but not least, we have the seasonal Mint Chocolate Crepe Cake. Topped with crushed candy canes, I would highly recommend it for all chocolate and mint chocolate chip ice cream fans!
Aside from the usual coffee drinks and gelato, there are also other bakery items you can get here such as souffle cheesecakes, pudding, and cheese tarts. I will definitely be back for the earl grey crepe cake and yuzu match hoicha souffle cheesecake!
