What You'll Get
Crêpes are the svelte supermodels of the breakfast table, shaming pancakes into covering themselves with figure-concealing ensembles of whipped cream and sweatpants. Get a taste of breakfast chic with today's Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of crêpes at Crêpes à la Cart, a block away from Tulane.
Named in Esquire magazine's 59 best places for breakfast in America in 2009, Crêpes à la Cart has been battering up a varied menu of French pancakes since 2004. Savory options include a classic crêpe fromage, which offers a choice of swiss, cheddar, mozzarella, or cream cheese ($4.50), and the Crescent City crêpe, a combination of roast beef, mushrooms, onions, swiss, and horseradish sauce ($7). Adventure fans can try the Monte Cristo, which enters the tormenting confines of the crêpe pan as a fresh but fortune-less fusion of chicken, ham, cheddar, and honey-dijon mustard ($6.75), and emerges rich with flavor, avenging itself on taste buds with swashbuckling succulence.
Dessert options include sweetly continental flavors, as sampled in the Blue Lagoon crêpe, a refreshing and unusual fusion of blueberries, brown sugar, Nutella, and Bailey's Irish Cream ($5.50), or ice-cream crêpes such as the Turtle Sunday and Sunday Royale ($6.25 each). Build-your-own options are also available for both savory and sweet menus, and all of Crêpes à la Cart's creations are made fresh and served warm in a special crêpe-sleeve, a mess-reducing wrapper that proves far more effective than the crêpe-culottes offered at less cultured crêperies.
Crêpes à la Cart is a counter-service café, offering outdoor seating on their sidewalk patio, and generally open until 3 a.m. or later on Fridays and Saturdays. Though not included in today's Groupon, the business also offers offsite crêpe-catering stations, allowing party guests to watch their crêpes being made on authentic French griddles, which have a much deeper appreciation for Jerry Lewis than American skillets.
Crêpes à la Cart is Zagat-rated, with a 25 rating for food, a 9 for décor, and a 17 for service. Where Y'At magazine's writers gave it Best Late-Night Snack recognition. Yelpers give it a 3.5-star average, six Yahoo! Locals give it an average of five stars, and 91% of Urbanspooners like it:
- Creative crepes. These folks create amazing fresh and handy food. Good portions and a great alternative to the boring wrap. – Nolalady123, Zagat
- Savory or sweet? Or how about both? Breakfast crepes, lunch crepes, and dessert crepes! Thankfully, the eatery often sets up a stand at local festivals and events to dole out these culinary delights. – LeslieR556121, Zagat
