Perfect pairing

Loza Wine & Crepes may have the word “crepes” in its name, but the downtown Turlock eatery has more to offer than just thin pancakes with sweet and savory fillings.  The popular lunch location features a menu of delectable crepes, like the sweet Peanut Butter Blondie or savory Roasted Turkey Spinach Pesto, along with sandwiches, unique entrees and Ukrainian items such as Chicken Pelmeni and Savory Bacon Potato & Onion Vareniki. Loza also has a complete brunch menu only available Saturday, Sunday and Monday.

Loza’s wine selection varies from local California reds and whites, to French, Spanish and New Zealand offerings, said owner Yelena Tsymbal. ■
