Though they're the same shape as pancakes, crêpes are folded rather than stacked, and coated with powdered sugar rather than the tears of pancake chefs who wished they could be crêpe chefs. Dine on a not-pancake with today's Groupon: for $5, you get two regular-size crêpes at La Crêpe Fraîche (a $9.98 value).
A dichotomous menu of savory and sweet crêpes introduces diners to the talents of La Crêpe Fraîche's chef, who hails from the south of France with skills perfected in a Provence pastry shop. Cut sweet teeth on the fraise chantilly, a mélange of fresh strawberries and strawberry coulis, or the suzette, a wheat base bedecked with Grand Marnier and confit candied oranges. Customers can satisfy carnivorous cravings by undergoing intense hypnotherapy or by gnawing on a savory saucisse crêpe, which showcases chicken-and-apple sausage, or the chorizo variant, a maw-inspiring medley of spicy sausage, eggs, green onion, and cheese. All of La Crêpe Fraîche's doughy delicacies blossom from fresh, preservative-free ingredients, and meal makers forgo microwaves during the cooking process, instead opting for warm hugs from affectionate sous-chefs.
La Crepe Fraiche
Whether diners are hungry for lunch or craving some sweets, La Crepe Fraiche is ready to make them happy. The cafe's crepes come in two varieties: savory (ham and cheese, apple sausage) and sweet (chocolate ganache, strawberries and whipped cream). The bakery also makes a mean cupcake in flavors such as mocha and oreo. As if all that weren't enough of a treat, they even serve organic frozen yogurt topped with house-made vanilla whipped cream.
