Though its appearance resembles that of a tortilla, a crêpe is never made of corn and never used as the liner of a sombrero. Celebrate France’s flatbread with today's Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of organic crêpes, homemade soups, coffee, and more at O’Crepes in Brooklyn.
Combining traditional French and Russian techniques, O’Crepes is a fast-casual café that specializes in delicate, organic crêpes filled with sweet and savory ingredients. The menu showcases both breakfast and lunch-friendly fare, from the vegan crêpe loaded with tofu, pumpkin seeds, guacamole, and red peppers ($8), to the J Hook, a buckwheat crêpe cradling smoked salmon, cream cheese, spinach, and capers ($11) with such flawless technique that bagels study it at toaster college. Sweet teeth clamor to caress dessert options such as the Hula Hoop, brimming with strawberry, banana, Nutella, and whipped cream ($8.50), or the Applepod, a dough envelope stuffed with apple or pear, walnuts, and honey ($7.50). Pancake pioneers can also build their own sweet or savory creations, padding an original ($6), buckwheat ($6), or gluten-free ($7) batter-base with a hearty hodgepodge of more than 20 fresh fillings (starting at $0.50). Defrost after a chilly urban hike or snowman group hug with a bowl of homemade minestrone, chili, or cream of broccoli soup ($3.50–$6.50), or sip your way to steamy satisfaction with a cup of coffee or tea.
Tall windows at the front of the café allow natural light to mingle with the appetizing aromas and passersby to question their own meal choices as they peer wistfully inside. O’Crepes partners its pursuit of belly-centric bliss with a commitment to organic ingredients, and it shows its support for non-crêpe life forms by working closely with suppliers that donate portions of their profits to the Elephant Rescue Park in Chiang Mai, Thailand.
