Buckwheat crepe stuffed with local summer fruit, toasted walnuts, whipped cream & honey

Instead of featuring white flour, these crepes have buckwheat flour, which contains more dietary fiber than its white counterpart. The slow-roasted fruit filling is naturally sweet and nutritious. Perfect for a light dessert or top with creamy yogurt for breakfast or brunch!
