Editorial Review of La Creperie

If you've been to France, you're a traveler. If you've eaten crepes in France, you're just plain lucky. If you have yet to do either, try your luck at La Creperie, a European-style cafe that has called Clark Street home since 1972.

French through and through, you'll find expected dishes like escargots, French onion soup and steak frites. But the real reason people flock to this tiny hotspot is for the crepes. Light and a bit crispy with the perfect amount of chewiness, the crepes themselves are enough to make you say, oh la la! But stuffing them is the fun part, and you have your pick of ingredients to choose from: The grilled chicken breast in a curry cream sauce with mango chutney is both sweet and savory, a favorite among regulars. Other options include broccoli and cheese, creamed spinach, and tomatoes with onions, garlic and basil, all less than $10.

It's easy to indulge your sweet tooth, as the 15-or-so savor options are met with 15-or-so dessert versions. We like the crepe Suzette, smothered in rich, sweet cream and orange Grand Marnier reduction. When it's warm, take a seat on the magical back patio, and enclosed outdoor space with whimsical touches of France. Slide-open windows in the front make it easy to capture a bit of that relaxed, European living, especially with Normandy cider in hand.

Average cost: <$10
