What is a Harajuku crepe?
The Harajuku-style crepe is a thin pancake that they roll into a cone, filled with various fillings – from sweet to savory. At most crepe shops there are over 100 different fillings and flavors to choose from.
The sweet fillings include; custard, ice cream, whipped cream, pieces of cakes, chocolate, sweet sauces (chocolate, caramel, strawberry, etc.), and fresh fruits.
There are not as many options and flavors when it comes to the savory crepes in Harajuku, but they’re delicious so make sure to taste one. Different kinds of meat, cheese, salad, sauces, and eggs are commonly used in the savory crepes.
If you like sweet or savory, it’s up to you. Personally I like the savory crepes better!

How much does it cost?
A crepe cost from 400 yen up to 1000 yen if you want one of the crazy crepes. And by crazy I mean whipped cream, chocolate and vanilla ice cream, a slice of cheese cake, a chocolate brownie, custard cream, chocolate and caramel sauce, fruits, and nuts – all stuffed in one crêpe.
Personally that’s a bit too much for me, but if you decide to try one of those crazy crepes, let me know how it was!
Is it good?
Personally, I like the hot savory crepes more than the sweet crepes.
The sweet crepes are often filled with lots of cream, which is something I didn’t like too much. However, some of the crepes are filled with ice cream and custard as well, and that must be much more delicious. Next time, I’ll give it a try again.
If you like cheese, try one of the savory crepes. At Marion Crepes they have both vegetarian and with meat, and lots of cheese.
