Renata started serving her crêpes in a food truck years before the food truck craze. There was such a demand for these sweet and savory crêpes that Renata decided it was time to expand her 4 wheeled business to a much needed restaurant where her customers could sit and enjoy these delicious creations, maybe with a hot chocolate served with a dollop of homemade whipped cream or a cup of one of their homemade soup.
Here are a few options from the menu…
“Tender Lovin´Chicken” organic roasted chicken, Loleta jack cheese, basil, gorgonzola, onions, tomatoes, chili flakes and créme fraiche.
“Crêpe Normandy” prosciutto, mushrooms, swiss and jack cheese, scallions and garlic, drizzled with créme.
“Banana Berry” bananas, raspberries and strawberries on a cinnamon butter sugar crêpe with hand-whipped cream and Nutella.
I’ve always wanted to find a restaurant worthy of starting at the top of the menu, ordering #1 and #2 and continuing down on each visit until I’ve tried everything they have to offer. Renata’s would be the place to do it, too bad I live 656 miles away.

6 tables and a record player
That’s what it says on their business cards, 6 tables and a record player. The Humble Pie may be small but it’s not lacking anything. Their menu is based on what’s in season and what’s local. The experience is similar to having dinner with good friends; the food is made because they enjoy making it. Play a game of cards, have a glass of wine and wave at the table next to you.
Josh, one of the owners
I love the details of a small, homey kitchen

I really enjoyed photographing Denise, she’s such a kid at heart. I love that this bakery was a childhood dream of hers and here she is doing it.
