“I’ve been doing this for 10 years and from the beginning, I wanted to do this the right way”
– Owner and Chef Ruth Hudin
Pioneer and visionary Ruth Hudin opened Crêpes Sans Frontières in August 2013 as the first eatery to christen the Spring Arcade Building, leading the way for the building’s restaurant development plans and inspiring others to open their new eateries shortly after.
Ruth found the location easy to admire. The Spring Arcade was built in 1923 by a San Francisco engineer trained at L’école des Beaux Arts de Paris, a structure in France with a glass roof strikingly similar to that of the Spring Arcade.
If you’re familiar with French culture, you already know they take their food very seriously. Commonly known for serving the most delicious and aesthetically presented foods in the world, the French hold the title for culinary masterpieces inspired by love and beauty.
Thanks to Ruth Hudin’s Crêpes Sans Frontières, Downtown’s vibrant community can now enjoy traditional buckwheat galettes (crêpes) made as they were intended for centuries, from the region of Brittany, France.
Sweet and savory, Ruth and her international team of culinary masters fill 100% organic gluten-free crêpes with fresh ingredients such as organic mushrooms, ripe tomatoes, caramelized onions, Emmental cheese and “joie de vivre.”
As much as you may love a plain butter crêpe sprinkled with powered sugar or a crêpe loaded with bananas and Nuttela topped with homemade whipped cream, don’t limit yourself. Crêpes Sans Frontières also come with Michael Cordon Bleu Salmon, crème fraîche, warm apples, mixed berries, lavender and lemon, eggs, bacon, fresh dill…and the list goes on. As beautiful as they are tasty, Ruth’s crepes have already been voted BEST CREPE of Downtown two years in a row and have become a favorite of our beloved Mayor.
For vegans or health enthusiasts, Ruth offers Kagen Water and a side açai bowl.
Now serving mimosas, champagne, wine and beer during brunch, for those who love the idea of French cuisine in Downtown LA, Viva Crêpes Sans
