Best Crêpes Around Washington
We’ve rounded up our top three spots around the state to try the best crêpes.
PAVZ CAFE BISTRO
If you think a crêpe should be a light meal, this probably isn’t the place for you. Try something savory like the spicy Italian sausage crêpe, stuffed with housemade Italian sausage, roasted red bell peppers, onions and Kalamata olives, topped with marinara, basil and a host of cheeses and baked in a small casserole. If you still have room, try a sweet crêpe, like the Black Forest, stuffed with chocolate gelato and cherries preserved in port wine.

FLEUR DE SEL ARTISAN CRÊPERIE
The James Beard-nominated chef Laurent Zirotti and his wife, Patricia, both from France, own this delightful crêperie. Try the Monte Cristo for breakfast (complete with rhubarb compote, if you desire), the Bison Meatloaf for lunch (with a kick of horseradish), or stick to a tangy classic with the lemon curd (you’ll want to add the optional blueberries).
909 SOUTH GRAND BOULEVARD
As they put it on their T-shirts, a crêpe “beats the fluff out of pancakes.” Try a sweet crêpe like the Apple Pie (flame-roasted Fuji apples, “ABC’auce,” graham crackers and cinnamon drizzle) or the savory ABCT (avocado, bacon, cheddar and tomato).
