Readers Gary and Steve let me know that Le Crepe Shoppe at 15 W. Guiterrez St (next to SB RoCo and Chocolate Maya) has closed. The eatery opened during April, 2011. A sign in the window says “Soon to open. Chocolate Maya Chocolate Lounge.”

    Hence the Chocolate Lounge (same owners). We hope they don’t keep Italian hours like they did at the crepe shoppe. Love Maya’s chocolate..good luck!

    The owner was nice when I went and the niece of the Chocolate Maya owner and they shared a kitchen in the back so seems like a good fit!

    We loved Le Crepe Shoppe and are sorry to see it gone but we just found Cafe Equilibrium in Isla Vista (on Pardall near the former IV Bookstore) and are delighted to have a creperie near Goleta with delicious crepes as substantial as breakfast burritos (no exaggeration), nice ambience, and a little urban feel. Cafe Equilibrium has espresso, ice cream, and two crepe makers for those who were frustrated with Le Crepe Shoppe’s one.

    Good call Laura, park next to the bookstore after 5 for the non students. There is Pacific Crepes though also, I have yet to try it myself.
