A new crepe eatery will open in Portland’s Public Market House in March, taking over the space that was formerly home to K. Horton Specialty Foods, which closed in January.

Lauren Brinkmann, owner of Café Crêpe in the Freeport Public Market, said she has considered opening a second location in the Public Market House three times, but she had hoped for a first-floor space. When the K. Horton’s spot opened up, she said, she jumped on it.

Brinkmann said she plans to add seating for at least a dozen in the large space. The menu will be similar to the one at 20 Bow St. in Freeport, which features a selection of savory and sweet crepes.

Brinkmann also owns a food truck that serves crepes at events at Thompson’s Point, farmers markets and private parties.
