Located 10 minutes from campus, P.S. I Crepe You is the perfect spot for a sweet break. Latina owner Patricia Rodallegas opened the crepe shop only seven months ago – in April. Easily distinguishable, the shop serves an experience that starts immediately when you drive up and spot the pink sign and the pink seating out front. Once opening the door, guests are greeted not only by the servers but by the cloud-like marble flooring, a wall covered in pink flowers, pink tables, chairs, decorations and a pink telephone booth for photo ops. The menu impressively steals attention as well, with eight sweet crepe choices at $11.95, five savory crepe choices at $13.78, and over 15 choices of toppings and sauces if you want to build your own, starting at $8. 

The customer favorite is, of course, the Pink Crepe (Strawberry Crunch). Deserving of the title,  strawberries and lechera are stuffed into a pink batter-made crepe and topped with pink vanilla ice cream and strawberry crunch toppings. The ice cream balances the sweetness of the crepe and there are plenty of strawberries to pair with every bite. Other flavors of crepes include Churrisimo Cheesecake, S’mores, Bananas Over You and a Pizza Crepe. Additionally, specialty crepes are changed monthly. The current one is the Witches Brew crepe, a crepe made with purple batter, filled with Oreo cream cheese, green condensed milk and topped with black chocolate ice cream and sprinkles. 

To pair with a crepe, the drink selection is extensive. From an iced mazapan latte to a  strawberry horchata latte, there is something for those who may want to experiment and for those who just want a regular black coffee. Or too, for those like me, who just get a milk. The varied and personalized menu allows customers to make their experience specifically tailored to their tastes. 

The customer service at P.S. I Crepe You is just as great as the menu. The servers are patient and accommodating and drinks and crepes are prepared quickly and usually served within 10 minutes. However, the place can get busy, and finding seating can be difficult, as there are just two bar seats and four tables, so if you’re getting your order during rush hour, it might be best to take it to-go. P.S. I Crepe You is open Monday-Thursday from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Friday-Sunday from 9 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. 

And don’t worry, P.S. I Crepe You is on social media and their accounts are just as pink as the shop. On Instagram, they can be found at @psicrepeyou with a following of 8k and, under the same username on TikTok, they have 4k followers. Plus, they have a rewards app and if you sign up, you can buy one crepe and get another 50% off every Monday-Friday from 3-6 p.m.
