Brand Re-Fresh & Launch of LPC Hardware Lane


We’ve been busy over the last six months designing, further developing and refreshing Melbourne’s favourite crêperie - La Petite Crêperie.


The time has come to unite our locations and business under the one brand – it will be launched thisweekend; Saturday the 27th and Sunday the 28th of June.

What does this mean?

‘Crêperie Le Triskel’ ( 32 Hardware Lane ) has gone through a minor internal renovation and our‘big sister’ has been transformed to ‘La Petite Crêperie, Hardware Lane’!  We have created a more comfortable space for our customers and further develped our menu to give you  more  of   what you like best:  authentic galettes, crêpes, coffees, French ciders and wines along with other ‘Arrogantly French’ favourites…

Externally you will find some changes  such as our front window ( displaying our new logo but retaining our much loved ‘Arrogantly French’ tagline of ‘Crêperie Le Triskel’) and other aspects of our outdoor terrace.

Our  new logo gives us a more consistent look and identity  that unites both locations as well as our mobile catering service.

We have captured the things that you as customers have told us you like best and we continue to maintain our quality standards and distinct French atmosphere.

Please explore our website for the changes and come and visit us to see for yourself!

We thank you for your ongoing loyalty and support and look forward to more good times together!


Michaël, Patrizia and the Team.

Weekend Notes

La Petite Creperie aspires to “a touch of Paris to the hearts of Melbourne”. This little kiosk located just a block up from Flinders Street Station does this, and does so very well.

What is great about LPC is the attention to detail that has gone into the decor. While there are endless examples of places where ‘the food speaks for itself’ – and this is not necessarily a bad thing – the time taken to make this place eye-catching needs be mentioned.

From the red and white check wallpaper to the elegant font that adorns the signboards, it is clear from first glance that LPC understands how many customers it can ‘win from a walk by’.

Concerning the menu, while in the business of crepes exclusively, the variety on offer does all it can to position this as your one-stop-shop for the treat, with (at time of writing) over 20 varieties and crepe combinations available.

Starting with your basic sugar & butter or sugar & cinnamon for $4.50 there is also Nutella and Almonds, Apricot, Plum and Cinnamon or Orange Marmalade and Chocolate for $6 a piece. 

Then, if you’re keen on ‘the lot’ and an all-out sugar hit – which many Melburnians may often feel necessary at the beginning of day or midway through the afternoon – there are $9 options.

As with many a French thing, the essence is in the understatement. So, I shall just say that the two options at this price range include Grand Marnier and Calvados liqueur respectively, though for the extra curious the full ingredients are listed in the menu section of the website.

All up, La Petite Creperie is a warm and elegant little piece of Paris on Melbourne’s ‘Main Street’. If you’ve walked on by but have been keen to try one of their crepes, do so. And, if yet to come across LPC – do look to do so.
