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 $12, you get a crêpe package for two (up to a $24.50 value) at La Petite Creperie. The package includes:
- Two sweet crêpes
- Two 16-ounce specialty drinks</p>
The chef at La Petite Creperie honed her dessert curling talents while residing in Paris, and populates her menu with 40 different styles of crêpes and a selection of gourmet coffee drinks. The pastry virtuoso enfolds sweet fillings including fresh blackberries and bananasmangos, or ambrosial accents such as butterscotch honey or vanilla ($4+). Dining duos can plunge fork prongs into the Marshmallow Monkey, which hoards nutella chocolate, banana, marshmallow, and coconut flakes in a treat as sweet as Julia Child’s tears ($7.75). A full espresso bar unleashes a bevy of 16-ounce caffeinated treats of both hot and cold varieties. Sweet teeth can indulge in a chocolaty mocha or a foamy cappuccino, while purist coffee lovers can forego the citizenship test and indulge in the hot water and espresso dancing throughout an americano.
