This small, casual neighborhood spot opened in early June, and I’ve been meaning to check it out since then (so much going on in my neighborhood, it’s hard to hit everything on my list). The menu is huge: 50-something combinations for sweet crepes and nearly 30 for savory (think eggs, meat, veggies), and I’m quite sure you could go crazy and create your own.
Marc and I stopped in after a morning run on our way out of town to the beach, and because it’s designed for people who are on-the-go, takeout was easy. We ordered the #48, which was filled with Nutella, strawberries and bananas:
And the #1, filled with cinammon, brown sugar and apple chunks:
The crepes were good, but I think we both felt like our homemade version was better. Not sure if it was because we waited a few minutes to sit down and eat, but the edges got a bit crunchy. I generally think of crepes as buttery and soft. However, the fillings were delicious and I’d definitely return to check out different combinations.
Anyway, the great thing about this place is that it is almost always open and it’s pretty cheap. According to 14thandYou, service begins at 7am on weekdays, a bit later on weekends, and continues until 10pm and 3am, respectively. If you’re ever craving brunch rather than Jumbo Slice after a night at the bar, you know where to go. The crepes range from about $4 to $8, depending on what fillings you choose, but even the higher end of that range is still relatively inexpensive for a filling entree.
Moral of the story: Homemade crepes can’t be beat, but Point Chaud Creperie is worth a trip for the huge selection of fillings.
*Note: Unless I’m crazy, I saw a sign for another location further south on 14th. We’ll scope it out and report back.
