The Roll Up Cafe, located right on the border of Provo and Orem, has been a hot spot for college students since it first opened three years ago. The restaurant specializes in creating unique crepe dishes most people have never heard of before, but it also offers soups, salads and shakes. Despite the obvious French influence of the crepes themselves, The Roll Up bases its crepes off American classics. The combination of cultures has resulted in surprisingly tasty creations like the pulled pork crepe or the classic apple pie crepe.

The chef says …

“In the five years of culinary experience I’ve had at culinary school and working in restaurants, working at The Roll Up Cafe has been one of the best experiences I’ve had. … I feel like even though The Roll Up is a small restaurant right now, it will soon expand and grow because of the quality of the food and also because of the friendly people that work there.” — Josiah Horne
