People have already begun hounding the counter at Cafe Crepe inside Union Station, though the restaurant only soft-opened a day or so ago. Still, having a sit-down casual restaurant for on-the-go commuters who can’t linger over a meal at Traxx is a big deal for the gorgeous Chinatown transit hub.
The marble-tinged restaurant sits right inside the vaulted waiting area and includes patio seating on the south side. The build-out itself, handled by OKB Architecture, took more than a year to finalize after the Metro team announced the opening back in 2014.
Guests will be able to grab a bite to eat as early as 7 a.m., with options for everything from eggs benedict and traditional breakfast to those namesake crepes, grilled panini, and richer dinner entrees like pasta. A menu for the Third Street Promenade location in Santa Monica can be found here.
The opening of Cafe Crepe should help continue the revitalization efforts of Union Station, along with other openings like the quality coffee stop Barista Society, or the long-awaited Cedd Moses project that dates back to 2014.
Cafe Crepe is now soft open inside Union Station, with daily hours from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. They’re hiring up too, if you’d like to toss your hat in the ring.
