What happens when two experienced sommeliers get their hands on a small locale in the midst of the bustling summer town of Borgholm? Behold: a french crêperie with a local twist – and indeed, an exquisite wine list.
Borgholm is the biggest town on the island of Öland, a beloved summer spot and the place where Charlotte and Daniel Norring met in 2006, having both moved there to pursue their passion for food and drink. In 2017, they decided to start their very own venture after they had stumbled across the perfect location and wanted to create something that was missing on the restaurant scene in Borgholm. “The kitchen was small and we needed to find a concept that could work well with it,” Charlotte says. And so, Norrings Crêperie was born.
With a beautiful outdoor terrace with space for 50 guests, and an additional 24 inside, this is where you can enjoy an extensive list of galettes – savoury pancakes – and crêpes – the sweet variety – always served in a warm and familiar atmosphere to hungry tourists, locals and regulars alike. Quality, sustainability and local produce are the top priorities. Everything is made from scratch and, wherever possible, they buy local: meat, vegetables, cheese and dairy all come from local farms around the island.
The Norrings also put great focus on wine and cider – both being qualified sommeliers – and provide a small but hand-picked list that changes regularly, always matched perfectly with the food they serve.
Open six days a week and awaiting another busy summer, they stand ready to make you feel at home and serve a little bit of France mixed with a big part of Öland.
The owners, Charlotte and Daniel Norring.
