The eatery serves scrambled egg crepes and other breakfast offerings all day, and it serves dessert crepes such as chocolate ice cream and marshmallow even if the phase of the moon indicates that man should hibernate. Each crepe is made to order and available in white and whole-wheat varieties.

Bistro St. Tropez provides patrons with platefuls of traditional Provencal cuisine made with fresh, seasonal ingredients, and serves up eyefuls of gorgeous views overlooking the Schuylkill River. After training at the Culinire de Nice, chef and owner Patrice Rames cooked his way through France, Britain, America, and the fourth dimension before bringing his fancy Gallic eats to Philadelphia. In an exquisite five-course dinner (selections vary weekly), guests light the gastronomic fuse with the marriage of creamy lobster bisque to a 2010 Georges Duboeuf Beaujolais Nouveau, for example ($48 per person, additional $30 for wine pairing). Next, diners might make a heartbreaking choice between a terrine de lapin or Fire Island oysters in a sherry mignonette. Then a main course such as striped bass with wild rice and mushrooms leaps into the mouths of deserving diners, chased by a 2008 Guillaume chardonnay. Lovers of four-legged fare may opt for a pairing of slow-braised lamb shank with roasted shallots and a 2008 Château Viella Madiran Tradition. Finally, a cheese course and dessert such as pumpkin profiteroles mollifies appetites into submission with the dulcet accordion notes of a French lullaby.
