Our Story

Amélie was a dream many years ago between father and son duo – Regis & Alex.

Regis owned several restaurants in East Anglia for over 32 years, The Great House in Lavenham & Maison Bleue in Bury St Edmunds to name a few – they received numerous prestigious awards and accolades – 3 Michelin red forks and 3 AA Rosettes, being in the top 50 longest lasting establishments in the Good Food Guide –  all testament to his passion and dedication.

Alex graduated in hospitality management from Ecole Hoteliere de Lausanne.  He spent three years working with Gaucho Restaurants in London managing several establishments becoming one of its youngest managing partners.

They started working on combining a classic dish served throughout the east of France, along with fresh, local and high-quality ingredients creating a brand new concept perfect for today’s lifestyle!

After many months of their own testing, burning and tasting, Flammekueche is now firmly at The Grafton just opposite the VUE cinema in Cambridge with a range of modern, fresh toppings that reveal the Crepy’s expertise and understanding of high-quality simple food and wonderful flavour combinations.

To complete the family venture, Amélie is named after Alex’s sister – because he didn’t know what to get her for her birthday!
