California Crepes - Horton Plaza: $5 for $10 Worth of Crepes at California Crepes

The crêpe, or French pancake, was invented in 1923 to make its American counterpart look fat, oafish, and uncouth in comparison. Help the disked dessert maintain its well-deserved sense of superiority with today's Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of sweet and savory crepes at California Crepes.

California Crepes' cartouche crafters populate a menu with sweet and savory concoctions to sate Jekyll-and-Hyde-style hankerings. On the sweet side, the Santa Barbara ($4.95) pairs chocolaty Nutella with whipped topping ($5.25), fresh fruit ($5.95) or both ($6.95), and a classic Crepe Suzette ($6.95) features a saccharine sleeping bag of Cointreau, butter, and sugar. Savory crepes encase less breakfast-centric choices, such as a cheese-and-pepperoni-pizza-stuffed Lake Tahoe ($5.75), and the Monterey ($6.99), a parade of chicken breast, harissa sauce, and veggies grand-marshaled by SPF-sneering sundried tomatoes.

California Crepes lures in clientele with an appealing 1950s-style storefront replete with neon lights, a retro glass vestibule, and a sidewalk-specials board written in Morse code. Lunchtime customers can soak up the sounds of daily live music or elect to please ocular senses with a trip to the plant-adorned outdoor patio.

California Crepes

Within a classic '50s diner façade, the chefs at California Crepes spread house-made batter thin, creating light, fluffy enclosures for a variety of fresh fruits, savory meats, and breakfast fare. The light treats can be augmented with the shop’s selection of gourmet grilled-cheese sandwiches, gelato, and coffee, offering a decadent lunchtime feast without the hazard of seasoning dishes with gold leaf. Patrons can nibble on the filled sweets during tête-à-têtes in the garden patio or watch the creation process unfold assembly-line-style at catered events.

I had the steak/cheese savory crepe. I had never had a crepe before. It was excellent and I look forward to coming back to try others.
