Crêpes are the middle ground between tall fluffy pancakes and thin sheets of phyllo used for pastry-chef's résumés. Meet the sugary middleman with today's deal: for $5, you get $12 worth of crêpes from Mobatta Crepes to Go. Your Groupon is currently redeemable at the Millennium Tower location, and will soon be redeemable at the Fremont and Georgetown Farmers Markets.
The crêpes flung at Mobatta's come swaddled in handy paper wrapping, which makes them ideal to nosh while walking to work or cruising on your Segway to court. Reimagined breakfast classics such as the french-toast crêpe, with eggs, cinnamon sugar and maple syrup ($4.99), or the salmon and egg tartine, with mozzarella, smoked salmon, and hollandaise sauce ($5.99), make excellent fuel for a day on the town. The menu has more than 10 sweet dessert crêpes, including a blackberry-cobbler crêpe, with cinnamon sugar, brown sugar, crumbled graham crackers, and whipped cream ($5.69), that's tasty company for a hot cup of Dillano's coffee ($0.99) or a Ghirardelli cafe mocha ($3.25). Or try savory lunch options such as the fish-taco crêpe ($6.69) and the chicken-bacon-ranch crêpe (stuffed with mozzarella, tomato, spinach, and ranch dressing, $7.39) to satisfy mysterious midday crêpe cravings.
Inspired by the al fresco crêpe masters of Le Mont Saint-Michel, the creators of Mobatta built their business as an homage to the dramatic performance of crêpe creation. The crêpe stands allow you to observe the sacred art of crêpe making, as your paper-thin dough wafer will be mixed, cooked, and origamically folded before your very eyes. If your neighbor's transatlantic teleportation crêpe-retrieving experiment went awry, and he ended up at the bottom of a children's-ball pit rather than in Montmartre, fill up on the European treat at Mobatta's.
- There’s an extensive menu offering both sweet and savory toppings, getting as fancy as the Northwest Salmon crepe that comes with mozzarella, spinach, onion, tomato, red peppers and lemon juice. We actually like the simplicity of a crepe with powdered sugar, and perhaps a little butter for added fat. Crepes are comfort food, soft and cuddly and easy to cram into the mouth. – Gastrolust
- They have a good selection of sweet and savory...They will definitely do when I'm craving a little something. – Reina H., Yelp
