Crepes, anyone?!

The place I usually take friends who are visiting Paris for good crepes is a place in Montparnasse (very touristic but cute). But, Lindsey spied this creperie in Antony, just across from the train station and suggested we have crepes for lunch... In the four years I've lived here, I have not really noticed this restaurant, so I decided to give it a try with her... Here are our MOST DELISH crepes!!! They had had HUGE selection on their menu and must have had at LEAST 30 different types of savoury crepes! YUMMMM!!!!

Who can really resist a sweet crepe?? I couldn't, Lindsey couldn't... Could YOU?!!

Lindsey said for me to go ahead and choose the dessert crepe so I chose dark chocolate, slivered almonds and whipped cream... You really CAN'T go wrong, can you?! It didn't disappoint... I told the guys there that these were the BEST crepes I've had in France in all of my years here... Seriously!!

We woke up early--- really EARLY!! Lindsey got up at 4:30 am, and me/Alex at 5 am! We were out the door at around 6ish and at the station by 6:30! It was still dark out! We went up to the airport via a detour to Mitry-Claye b/c of construcion work on the weekends.. THANKS ANIMESH for letting us know about this... it added an extra 40 minutes onto our trip up there. We arrived at the airport by 8:40 am and Lindsey was through the security gates at 9:30!

Good-bye Lindsey!! Have a great trip back and I had a really GREAT time traveling with you this summer!! See you next year!

Oh YES PLEASE...crepes for me! They look so delicious Leesa!

It's funny how we get so into our routines that we never really notice some of the places & things around us.

Think I'm going to take note of this post & pay more attention to the little places!

Hi Lis...

Okay, when you come to visit, we'll go for crepes, then!!
Or, I'll just eat one for you!

I agree about missing those little places..

Take care,

Where is it? Is it before you cross over to the station ? I will have to try it next time I am with you :-) xx

Hi Anne-

Exactly... It's on that little side street (on the side where all the buses are parked).. right across from the station.. We will DEFINITELY go when you come! YUM!!!

I have never had a savory crepe before, but hae always wanted to try on. Maybe I will just make some myself.

Aren't the crepes amazing - and they have so many flavours. I think I could try a new type every week and still be going through the menu after two years!

I love the coffee picture in your other post too. Latte art is popular in Australia but I haven't seen much of it in France (guess it's hard to draw anything on a littly bitty expresso). Maybe it will take off here too, at least in the mornings.

Hi Kristy,

Thanks for stopping by and commenting.. I LOVE savoury crepes ALMOST more than sweet ones... I haven't seen much of coffee art in France but I've run into it quite a bit in the UK! I DO love it!
Malango Cafe in Paris does designs on their coffee drinks and it looks very nice...
