Inside a cheerful café marked with a striped awning, chefs dote on hot pans that cradle delicate French crepes destined to encapsulate sweet or savory fillings. Cream of the Crêpe's batter whisperers take pride in the smallest details of their crepes, demanding that each flaunts a flaky texture, toothsome filling, and crisply ironed handkerchief. Crepe masters fill the edible envelopes with eggs and cheese during breakfast, grilled meat and crisp vegetables during lunch, and fresh fruits or decadent spreads during sweet-tooth attacks. Artful baristas grind Lavazza coffee beans to brew into drip coffees or strong espressos topped with scoops of frothy milk. Between customers, servers wipe the granite counter and set vases bursting with flowers on every table, where the blooms soak up light reflecting off the café's sunny yellow walls.
Don't be worried if you order a crepe at Nu Crepes and the food arrives looking like a calzone. These are not the delicate crepes made in French-style creperies. They're hearty and stuffed so full that sometimes they land on tables in a circular tin pan. Those crepes might come stuffed with chicken doused in buffalo or barbecue sauce—or italian sausage mixed with green peppers and mushrooms. Sweeter palates, however, can keep it classic with cinnamon and sugar, or relish a campfire blend of marshmallows, biscoff, graham cracker, and chocolate. At breakfast, the egg-and-sausage crepes provide tastier morning fuel than a gasoline smoothie.
Owner Niall Martin never stops experimenting with new combos, either. Such wild creations as peppermint crunch, sloppy joe, and Greek breakfast have all starred as crepe of the month at some point. The kitchen sources everything it can from local vendors. In fact, Chicago's Dark Matter Coffee created an exclusive house blend just for the creperie.

The art of pastry baking is a careful ordeal. Each morning, long before the sun starts to shine on Lake Michigan, the team at Libanais Sweets is up making sure their specialties are crisp and flaky on the outside and soft and warm on the inside. They specialize in baked goods from around the world, including Eastern pastries such as baklava and European pastries ranging from éclairs to mille-feuille and tiramisu. In addition, the Libanais staff crafts specialties like chocolate lollipops, which are ideal for special events but can’t be used to bribe the rare bird that would prefer a broccoli pop.
