Competition for Sacramento's crepe clientele is to intensify at 7 a.m. Monday. That's when Michel Bloch is to open his Crepe Cafe at Ninth and K. A well-seasoned and well-traveled crepe master, Bloch first went into the business 28 years ago in Sacramento, but he's been absent from the local restaurant scene for about two decades.
Crepe Cafe will occupy quarters that most recently housed a La Bou Cafe. Bloch originally planned to be open for breakfast and lunch only, but now he will extend the cafe's hours into the later evenings during the latter half of the week. "I will be challenging K Street," says Bloch of his decision to stay open later than initially expected.
Crepe Cafe is to be open 7 a.m.-5 p.m. Mondays and Tuesdays, 7 a.m.-9 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday. "Sunday I am on my horse," says Bloch, a competitor in endurance rides.
