If you’ve ever looked around Vancouver House, it’s likely you’ve noticed the rust-colored space just steps down from Fresh St. Market and London Drugs, and now it’s almost time for the concept inside it to open: Ça Marche Crêperie.
Owner Maxime Bettili told Dished Vancouver last year that the new eatery will specialize in the Breton / French culinary classic of crepes and cider, complete with “a Pacific Northwest edge.”
Bettili, who also owns Kitsilanos Au Comptoir, told us that the new concept was about to open on Saturday, November 6, 2021.
“Vancouverites will be formally introduced to galettes de sarrasin – crispy, tasty and delicious – and the delightful tradition of pairing it with a bubbling bowl of cider,” says Bettili.
In addition to a modern interior complete with concrete, corten steel, gunmetal and antique brass elements, Ça Marche will offer an open kitchen and a bar and a 25-seater heated terrace with a pull-out canopy, which will be completed after the grand opening.
For food, guests can expect a selection of galettes de sarrasin (spicy buckwheat crêpes) and sweet crêpes complete with vegan and vegetarian options.
Prices will range from around $ 17 to $ 24 for tasty crepes and $ 12 to $ 13 for sweet flavors.
When it comes to drinks, people can look forward to a list of local BC ciders and curated French ciders in bottles and on casks.
There will also be a rotating selection of wines, some craft beer, a small cocktail list and even some apple-based digestifs.
“While Vancouverites are used to drinking from wine and beer glasses, our cider will be served in handmade ceramic bowls – la bolée de cidre, indispensable for crepes and cider,” says Bettili. “Introducing this special drinking tradition to our guests is one of our most exciting ambitions at Ça Marche.”
Be sure to check out Ça Marche starting November 6 at 10.00.
