We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Darn Good Crepes.
I’m going to say it once and only once: You haven’t lived until you’ve eaten a crepe from Peaberry & Galette.
Located in the Keauhou Shopping Center in Kailua-Kona, Peaberry & Galette is a small “french style crêperie and cafe” that serves savory and dessert crepes, teas, Kona coffee, and a variety of other goodies.

Honestly, these crepes are to die for. The first time I went there we ordered two crepes, caramelized apple, and chocolate banana. I started on the caramelized apple and realized I was eating what must equate to God among food.
It is this buttery golden brown confection with a tawny glow and covered in warm autumn tones. The crepe itself is light and flavorful, the thinnest, sweetest pancake you’ve ever tasted in your life. Folded neatly, it rests beneath a delicious nest of smooth vanilla ice cream and soft, caramelized apples.
The apples are rolled in cinnamon and tucked gently into the vanilla, creating a symphony of sweet and spicy flavors with a fresh juicy kick. Ribbons of warm caramel and sprinkles of powdered sugar and cinnamon lace the dessert together and it is topped off with a tasteful crown of fluffy whipped cream.
Now tell me that doesn’t sound amazing. Say it out loud, with a straight face.
I know. IMPOSSIBLE!
It was so good I even took a picture of it!

I have a very close relationship with my food. I like to describe it the way I would describe a very attractive person. For you ladies, this is my Robert Downey Jr., my Vouge cover man. For you gentlemen, this is your Halle Berry, your Victoria’s Secret model.

Believe it or not, I timed it.
The chocolate banana was equally incredible. Another gorgeous, buttery crepe lay wreathed in freshly sliced bananas. A beautiful, white scoop of vanilla ice cream rested daintily, yet seductively atop its dusky, golden perfection. Dark, fragrant chocolate sauce criss-crossed over the masterpiece, creating a labyrinth of alluring, delectable beauty.
I was so taken with this dessert I didn’t even get a picture. That night was truly a supernova of flavor.
So I suggest that you head on over to Peaberry & Galette on your next stop in Kona. I promise it is well worth the trip.
