Crepes and Doughnuts in Nottingham

I've heard nothing but amazing things about Aubreys Creperie in Nottingham city centre. It's tucked up in West End Arcade (off Long Row) in Nottingham and whilst I've visited a few times, it's always been super busy with no seats available so it's taken me a while to sample their food.

But I'm so glad I finally managed to get a table for 2 one Sunday afternoon, we were off to see The Greatest Showman at Cineworld and we needed a light meal to stave off the pick n mix cravings throughout the film...

The Creperie is tiny, but perfectly formed. It has a real Parisien feel to it and all the crepes are made to order with a host of sweet and savoury options. They cater for special diets too so everyone can find something on the menu!

I chose the Chorizo Galette and it was absolutely perfect! Definitely the best crepe I've ever eaten and probably one of the nicest meals I've had in a while. I had a Peppermint tea and my guest had a Spiced Apple Tea which smelt divine.

I longingly looked at the Sweet Crepes but my Galette filled me to the brim so I'll have to save that for my next visit.

Our next stop was Doughnotts. We decided against traditional cinema sweets and treated ourselves to a selection of doughnuts to feast on during the film. I won't lie when I say I saw people looking enviously as my doughnut filled bag as we took our seats!
I had the Snickers doughnut and it was sooo good! I have quite a sweet tooth but whilst the toppings were sweet, this complimented really well with the doughnut itself so it didn't feel like a sugar overload.

I've loved Doughnotts since they started up and it's great to see them opening new branches around the East Midlands. Now everyone gets to sample their doughnutty goodness and that can only be a good thing!

Oh and The Greatest Showman was EPIC! I haven't stopped listening to the soundtrack and we're going to an open air screening of the film in May so I apologise now for any loud singing that might interrupt your viewing...
