Though they're the same shape as pancakes, crêpes are served folded rather than stacked and dusted with powdered sugar rather than with the tears of pancake chefs who wished they could be crêpe chefs. Dine on a not-pancake with today's Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of crêpes, coffee, and more at Crêpes à Latte the café, located a foxtrot away from the Irving Park Brown Line in North Center.
Crepês à Latte's menu highlights the whimsical elements of Parisian dining, rolling a culinary mosaic of playful flavors into crêpes and other enticing treats. Sweeten the day's beginning with a breakfast crêpe with lemon and sugar ($3.95) or make it melty with an egg-and-cheese crêpe topped with tangy hollandaise sauce ($4.50). Savory crêpes ($6.75) are served with crisp cucumber salad and boast fanciful flavor couplings such as chicken-peanut satay and baked apples and brie. Pair a confectionary crêpe such as bananas foster or salted caramel chocolate pretzel ($5.75 each) with a sweetened signature coffee concoction such as the marshmallow latte ($3.75–$4.25) or loose-leaf tea ($1.95–$2.35).
Crêpes à Latte the café is adorned with sprightly décor to match its flavorful eats. Cushy couches and orbital window seats are enveloped by cool lime-green pastels and a three-dimensional Parisian cityscape—complete with lampposts, brick flooring, and a clock tower—connects to the counter. Free WiFi is available for diners wishing to check email or surf the Net in search of videos of reverse jetpacks, and a fireplace allows customers to keep warm and share their meals with tongues of flame.
- It's hard to find a place where you feel equally comfortable with a group of your late-20s friends, or with your baby and stroller. I think this place is hits it on the mark. – Jacqueline E., Yelp, 2/20/11
