Lotus Leaf Cafe & Creperie opening in Delano

lotuslogoThere’s a new healthy, crepe-y place going in the former Palette spot in Delano.

On Monday, local acupuncturist Jacquelyn Keefer will open Lotus Leaf Cafe & Creperie at 613 W. Douglas in Delano.

The restaurant will serve breakfast, lunch and dinner, including sweet and savory crepes, panini sandwiches, soups and dinner entrees such as tandoori chicken and salmon nicoise. About half of the menu offerings are vegetarian/vegan, Keefer said, and she’ll also serve natural juices and wheatgrass.

“Delano is fabulous for a place like this,” Keefer said. “The people down here are a little more alternative new-agey.”

Once open, the restaurant’s hours will be 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays. For more information, call 316-295-4133.
