Yes! I finally got to try the crepe cake from Millie Creperie! I have seen pictures and heard about this unique 20-layer crepe cake dessert and finally got to go to Kensington Market on a Friday night to try it. Yay!
Diana and I were in search of this dessert shop and spotted it just as we were about to take the bend to exit Kensington Market. Their shop front is not very obvious that this is the home of the famous crepe cake so you have to keep your eyes peeled for it.
Upon walking in on this summer night, it was so hot and humid inside the shop! I quickly looked around and eyed the crepe cake sitting in the fridge. I knew exactly what I wanted to get. They had the Original crepe cake or the Green Tea Crepe Cake. Usually, for a first time try, I would like to try their original flavor so that I know what it tastes like, but their green tea one looked so good that that’s what I got.
Diana got the Mango Parfait. It is a cup layered with mango gelato, corn flakes, strawberry, blueberry, whipped cream, and two pocky sticks. It looked great! I tried a bit of the mango gelato and was surprised with how fresh and mango-y it tasted. It had a slight tinge of sourness, but the aftertaste left me impressed with the mango flavour. Yum! The parfait at Wooffles & Cream was inspired by the parfaits here at Millie Creperie because they both contain corn flakes!
I was so excited to try my Green Tea Crepe Cake. They literally made the cake by layering crepes on each other with authentic matcha ice cream between every layer. That’s 20 layers of thin crepes and matcha ice cream. What an invention!
I dug my fork into the cake and it was so smooth! It was a ridiculously smooth bite of crepes layered with matcha tea cream! Wow. It was nothing like I’d tasted before. The best part was not only the smoothness and cold cream but how you were left with a little bitter aftertaste from the authentic matcha. This is what you call real green tea flavour. You could really taste it and see the green matcha residue on your fork after each bite.
I finished this cake so quickly and felt full towards the last few bites. This is truly one of the best and most unique desserts I’ve ever tasted. No wonder it has received so much hype. The hype is worth it!
I can’t wait to come back and try their Original Mille Crepe Cake to see how that one differs. I also want to try their parfait and sweet crepes! Their pictures, although few, look so good.
The shop has a few tables for you to dine in, but since it was a beautiful summer night, we dined outside on the stools where it was much cooler (I think the staff there either didn’t realize their shop was so humid and hot that day or their A/C broke down). More people need to try Mille Crepe Cakes! I think the world would be a better place because of it. 😛

June 2016 update: I recently was in the area of Kensington Market after dinner and wanted something sweet. I remembered the amazing mille crepe cakes from Mille Creperie so I walked in and got a slice of the original mille crepe cake to go. It was put into a box but since I live uptown, by the time I got home, the cream in the mille crepe cake had melted.
However, it still tasted so good! The last time that I had had the matcha mille crepe cake, I was already so satisfied with it because it was so soft, smooth, and delicious! This Original mille crepe cake was the exact same deliciousness! It was amazing. I’m so glad that I got it to try! Too bad I live so far from Kensington Market, otherwise I’d come here all the time to have some! 🙂
