Squaw Valley welcomes La Petite Creperie

Squaw Valley USA is pleased to welcome La Petite Creperie, a delicious new eatery open now in the Village. La Petite Creperie serves a variety of homemade sweet and savory crepes, made to order with fresh and often organic ingredients.

“My father is French,” said Josette Rouas, who operates the crepe cart with Tom Richards. “Our inspiration was from friends and family while travelling in Europe. It’s the only creperie in the Tahoe Basin.”

La Petite Creperie originally opened five years ago at Farmers Markets around the Tahoe Basin. La Petite Creperie owners Tom Richards and Josette Rouas moved to Squaw Valley two years ago when Tom accepted the position of Squaw Valley USA terrain park director. After five consecutive summers of optimal business, Tom and Josette decided to serve up fresh crepes throughout the winter season in the Village at Squaw Valley.

“We had a great turnout over the holidays. The kids love the walk-up stand,” said Rouas.

The new La Petite Creperie trailer is parked for the season at the east end of the Village at Squaw, outside in the courtyard, adjacent to Surefoot. Homemade sweet and savory crepes, hot coffee and other beverages are offered from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. Friday through Sunday and holidays. La Petite Creperie will reopen on busy evenings from 7 to 10 p.m. for dinner and dessert crepes.

Owner Josette Rouas encourages visitors and locals alike to stop by La Petite Creperie and find out how a fresh, hot crepe can make a day on the slopes that much sweeter. Rouas exclaims, “Come support a local business and try one of our delicious French crepes the next time you’re in the Valley!”
