Despite what the ugly rumors would have you believe, Queen Marie Antoinette never mentioned cake and actually proclaimed, "Let them eat crêpes! Sweet, sweet peasant crêpes!" Avenge centuries of unfair character assassination with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of crêpes, sandwiches, breakfasts, and drinks at Prince Creperie in Albany Park.
Appearing only recently in a puff of heavenly aromas, Prince Creperie is the waking dream of Parisian chef Ezat Nada, who loves introducing the Northwest Side to an authentic enclave of Gallic fare. Globe-trotting taste buds can hit the savory Mediterranean for the zucchini, tomato, and feta-filled Crêpe Athens ($7.99) or backpack to Belgium for dulcet delights such as the Crêpe de Liége ($6.99), a sweet-stuffed envelope of raisins, pears, oranges, almonds, and pistachio ice cream. In addition to making its signature bread circles, Prince Creperie reanimates the morning's undead commuters with a bevy of breakfasts, including eight different omelettes and a spot-hitting side of Egyptian beans ($3.99), as well as a leafy litany of French salads that include Roasted Beet ($7.99) and Salade Quatre Fromage ($8.99). For extra fun, send each bit of food plunging down an interior waterslide of cinnamon coffee ($2), Moroccan chai ($2.99), or Tropical Storm smoothie ($4.99).
