Universal Studios Florida recently opened a new food stand and is a good one. Central Park Crepes can be found across from Mel’s Drive-In just outside the Hollywood section of the park. This location is kiosk style, so there is no seating right here, but there is some near by Cafe La Bamba.
Central Park Crepes has four savory and four sweet options, however only one option is vegan. The Vegan Sausage Crepe is clearly labeled and is a delicious savory item. This crepe is filled with Gardein vegan sausage crumbles, Daiya mozzarella shreds, vegan pesto, diced tomatoes, and a balsamic glaze.
The stand opens around 11am daily, and for now there has been a pretty long line at open. The crepes take a bit of time to make, so the line moves slowly. The first time we waited in line over a half hour to even order the crepe and then another 5+ minutes to get it.
The vegan crepe is made on a separate line from the other crepes, which is great to actually see. They make the non-vegan crepes up front and our vegan ones in a back section.
The crepe comes out hot, so be sure to grab napkins to buffer between that and your hands. You’ll need them because this thing is messy. The oil from the pesto mixed with the sausage ends up pooling at the bottom of the crepe, so be aware when eating it.
The flavors of this crepe are great. The actual crepe is light and has a slight pull to it. All of the fillings go well together, however we have noticed that the balsamic can be a bit much. So if you’re not a huge balsamic fan, you can order it with a light drizzle. The cheese actually gets melty too since this thing is so hot. I definitely recommend trying this on your next visit to Universal Studios.
