As pancakes continue to take their status as America's favorite flat food for granted, the crêpe continues making progressive headway into the American stomach-heart. Today's Groupon furthers the surge with $10 worth of crêpes and drinks for $5 at La Crêperie Voilà at 7th and Pike, otherwise known as the Crêpe Crossing of Oregon Trail fame.
Wrap taste buds around an impressive lineup of savories, including vegetable ratatouille under melted imported Swiss cheese, herb butter, and fresh spinach ($6.95), and scrambled-egg crêpes draped in a subtle mushroom sauce ($5.75). Smoked-wild-salmon-lox crêpes with crème fraiche and lemon ($7.25) punctuate brunch-time bites alongside the semi-sweet cooked-apple crêpe with a dash of maple syrup and imported Swiss ($6.50). Make the leap to full-on sweet with dulce-de-leche caramel crêpes topped with real whipped cream ($4.50), or dark-chocolate crêpes with raspberry sauce, chopped hazelnuts, and real whipped cream ($5.95), among many others. Locally made ice cream and hot and cold drinks are also available.
La Crêperie Voilà is an elegant street-side operation where crêpe artisans perform vivid crêpe-craft for hungry eyes and hungrier mouths. Savory buckwheat crêpes and Parisian sweet crêpes are prepared before the gaze of mobile munchers using delicate wrist form and mild pyrotechnics. Stop by on your next walking date to pull off the patented fake-yawn-to-shoulder-grapple®, establishing a firm grasp on your date for struggle-free bite stealing. Crêpes can be wrapped for on-the-go consumption, boxed to take home, or plated for a feast inside or outside this open-air eatery.
La Crêperie Voilà was nominated for Best Crepes 2009 and made the Best of Western Washington 2009 list on CityVoter. The Seattle Times, Birmingham magazine, and Seattle Daily recommend its delicious offerings:

With nearby indoor seating and great company, it was a movable feast. – Kim, Seattle Daily
