While the first Le Crepe Café Hawaii may have opened in 2008 at the Waikiki Shopping Plaza, the journey for owner Soufiane Bouharkat began long before that. Born in North Africa, he grew up in Paris and always dreamed of opening his own shop.
In 2002, he made that dream a reality and opened a small Parisian café in France. After 5 years of owning the Paris shop and traveling back and forth to Hawaii, he made the decision to permanently move to Oahu in 2007.
The primary focus of Le Crepe Café Hawaii in its infancy was farmer’s markets, catering events, and festivals. But slowly the brand grew, and in 2009 the first store front was opened in the heart of Mānoa.
Over the years, the brand continued to expand and can also be found in UH Mānoa at Paradise palms food court, and also in Kailua.
The goal of our brand is to create a bright and enthusiastic ohana environment for everyone to experience. We strive daily to provide our guests with fresh, natural ingredients that not only taste good, but also make you feel good!
Mahalo and Merci.
