hile I love exploring new restaurants, I also love going
back to places that I have enjoyed before. Especially
now as we emerge from the pandemic, there are so
many restaurants across Berks County that are calling me back.
One of those was West Reading's Taste of Crepes.
My first " taste " was back in 2014, and a lot has changed at the
restaurant since then. Most notably, new owners took over the

morning. The tables out front were full, as were the tables inside,
but there was only one other couple seated out back when we
arrived (though they would fill up while we were there).

44 crepes on the regular menu, plus daily specials and the
build-your-own option.
For our savory crepe, we chose the roasted red pepper. The
thin pancake was stuffed with mozzarella, baby spinach, roasted
red peppers and cranberry sauce. On the side were dollops of
