Ham, Bacon, and Cheese Crepe
For a twist on a classic ham and cheese sandwich, try the ham, bacon, and cheese crepe.

You can also add avocado or an egg to the dish for extra flavor. This ranks at the top of the list as one of the best ham crepes some visitors have had.
Nutella and Strawberry Crepe

The texture of the crepe is light, and the strawberries always taste fresh, as visitors note. This is an ideal sweet, light dessert for any time of the day. If you don’t like strawberries, other highly-rated Nutella crepes include those with Oreos or bananas.
California Chicken Crepe
Savory crepes at Smoky Mountains Creperie can also be very filling for those ready to take on the trails in the Gatlinburg area.

With hummus, feta cheese, spinach, and vegetables packed into a crepe topped with special sauce, this meat-free dish is still filling enough to share, especially if you also share a dessert crepe or add chicken or avocado to this crepe for a heartier meal.
