Rappers Krept and Konan to open new dessert restaurant ‘Crepes and Cones’ in Croydon later this month
Crepes and Cones will open on Saturday, May 12.
Grime duo Krept and Konan have revealed they will be opening a new restaurant – amusingly named Crepes and Cones – in Croydon later this month.
The rappers, who were born and raised in Thornton Heath and Gipsy Hill, will be opening the eatery on South End, in South Croydon, on Saturday, May 12.
Krept took to Twitter on Tuesday (May 1) to announce the opening – something he is “proud” and excited about.
In a series of tweets, the star said: “After working on this for over two years I’m so proud to announce that me and Konan are opening our restaurant @CrepesAndCones next week – Saturday, May 12th. I hope to see you all there. Tears of joy.
“Honestly put my blood, sweat and tears into this. So much up and downs making this. I even became a builder at one stage lol – but we’re finally here.
“I said we would do this years ago and made it happen. How? I have no idea but believe me you can do anything you want in life.
“We open next Saturday. I hope to see you all there. Please follow and support @CrepesAndConesmy gs.”
The MOBO award-winning musicians predicted they would open their own restaurant via a tweet they posted in 2014.
Referring to the tweet he uploaded four years ago, Krept said: “When I tweeted this I swear I had no idea where to start or how to go about this.
“I rap, how am I gonna open a restaurant. Where do I start etc…Four years later it came to life. And somehow we made it happen. I just prayed and prayed for us to figure it out and we did.”
In a separate Instagram post, Krept revealed that Crepes and Cones, which describes itself as “not your average desert restaurant”, will sell a range of food including crepes, waffles, grilled food, chicken, burgers, ribs and hot dogs.
The post also said the restaurant will offer cocktails, mockatils, slushes and milkshakes, and will even boast its own private room which will be available to hire.
The restaurant is disabled friendly and child friendly, Krept added.
A number of photos posted online show the yellow Crepes & Cones sign installed on the outside of the restaurant, as well as the long red seats and brown tables that have already been placed inside the eatery.
The restaurants website – www.crepesandcones.com – is yet to go live, but is anticipated to in the coming days.
