Blast through battalions of crêpes with this Groupon-musket, which gets you $25 worth of food and drink for $10 at Café Bonaparte. Café Bonaparte is a Parisian crêperie and coffee shop in Georgetown that's renowned for its fresh and flavorful brunch, tantalizingly textured crêpes, and its location next to, but not on top of, an ancient burial ground.
Café Bonaparte's menu has classic bistro fare coupled with homemade desserts and gourmet coffees. Sample sweet crêpes (Nutella, banana, carmelized mango slices, dulce de leche, and more) or savor savory crêpes, including the Marseille (made with marinated chicken, sour cream, onions, and red bell peppers) and the Verona (Italian sausage, caramelized onions, green peppers, provolone, topped with fontina cheese). Try a nicoise salad (fresh tuna, eggs, red onions, potatoes, green beans, tomatoes, and a basil yogurt dressing) or French onion soup. Café Bonaparte has gourmet coffees to match the globetrotting tastes on its menu.
Café Bonaparte is an opulent eatery with high ceilings, classy wood furnishings, and regal roundings. The décor "combines a French sleekness of deep reds and black with black-and-white photographs evocative of exotic places," says the the Washington Post. Service is fast, friendly, and attentive. Coat yourself in powdered sugar and roll into Bonaparte's sweet maw.
- Though the small bistro offers a variety of dishes on the brunch, lunch and dinner menus, it is best known for its wide variety of the sweet and savory favorites. ...much of the menu at Cafe Bonaparte reads like a travel wish list. The Florentine crepe is filled with Roma tomatoes, ricotta cheese, pine nuts, basil, and a roasted garlic-pesto sauce. The Budapest is loaded with beef, onions, tomatoes, peppers and a sour cream cilantro sauce. These savory crepe offerings, which arrive on a plate with a small salad, are far more gourmet than any purchased from a Parisian street vendor; smoked salmon, sun-dried tomatoes and fontina cheese are among the innovative additions to the list of crepe ingredients. – Shauna Maher, Washington Post
