Crepes Bonaparte, a concept Christian Murcia developed while in college and grew in Orange County with his wife Danielle, opened its first brick and mortar location on Thursday, March 1. The Crepes Bonaparte storefront will be located in Downtown Fullerton at 115 South Harbor Boulevard, Suite A. They will celebrate the Grand Opening by giving each person in line a free Nutella Crepe from 5pm to 9pm.
The food trucks are known for their vast crepe offerings, ranging from sweet to savory, as well as fresh breakfast options. Signature menu items include the Caprese (roasted tomato, seasoned chicken, mozzarella and garlic pesto), California Sunrise (avocado, crisp slices of bacon, roasted tomato, cheddar and a fresh cracked egg), and the HazelBerryAna® (fresh strawberries, sliced banana & Nutella topped with whipped cream and a chocolate drizzle). Expanded beverage offerings will be available at the restaurant, including French beer and wine, as well as espresso drinks.
“Our concept started as a business plan for my Entrepreneurial Studies final project while at the University of Southern California in 2008,” said owner and founder Christian Murcia. “We are celebrating 10 years as a business in Southern California, and are so excited to officially be a part of the Downtown Fullerton neighborhood, which is both my, and my wife Danielle’s hometown.”
Since its humble beginnings as a crepe catering station in 2008, which later grew to two food trucks in 2010, the brand has been featured on Food Network’s Food Truck Race, named one of the Top 20 Food Trucks by QSR Magazine, highlighted on Food Truck Fanatics, and more.
The Crepes Bonaparte restaurant will be open six days a week for breakfast through dinner, with late night and brunch menus on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
Guests can select their made-to-order crepes at the counter, then select a seat at the indoor high tops or on the al fresco patio.
