For the past few Tuesdays Lauren and I have been taking a “Big Fat Jewish Wedding” class at UW Hillel. Our weekly tradition includes a pre-class meal in the U-District. Last week on our way to Caspian Grill we saw that a Café Crêpe had opened on the Ave. This is part the same mini-chain from Vancouver that have a number of branches around Robson St. I had enjoyed those in the past so tonight we stopped in before class.
Overall is was so-so. The service was friendly and quick, though there is zero ambiance in the place — just some empty white tables in a sterile undecorated room. We chose a spinach, mushroom, and emmenthal crêpe from the very small menu. The mushrooms were raw, the crêpe itself was too thick, the one saving grace was gooey melted emmenthal.
The dessert crêpe (strawberries and chocolate) was better, though again the crêpe was too thick. But it was strawberries and chocolate and so we polished it off 🙂
Café Crêpe would do in a pinch, but I’ll be continuing my search for a good Seattle “fast crêpe” (a la Crêpes A-Go-Go).

UPDATE: Café Crêpe has closed this location (seems I wasn’t the only one with a ho-hum experience)
