I’m a little hesitant to write about Crepes Du Nord, tucked away deep in the Financial District. After all, there only 3 or so tables, and once the word is out it will be even more challenging for me to find a seat! However, the crepes are so scrumptious I just had to share…you’re welcome. Crepes Du Nord has an extensive selection of both savory and sweet crepes, with a selection of bistro items bisecting the two – but I was here for crepes! See for yourself:
I was in a sweet mood, so I ordered the Berry Chocolate crepe (first picture), with fresh raspberries, Nutella, and vanilla bean ice cream. I’m a “dessert for breakfast” gal, so this was right up my alley! The white flour crepe was delicate and the Nutella and raspberries created a rich and tangy bite. I had to finish this off pronto, so the ice cream wouldn’t melt – it’s just the right thing to do.
My eating buddy decided to go the savor route, and ordered the signature Crêpes Du Nord – with smoked salmon, scrambled eggs, and dill creme, with a hearty buckwheat crepe. A tangy salad completed the dish.
With such a tiny storefront, it’s easy to walk right by Crepes Du Nord without even noticing it. But trust me, that’s a mistake you don’t want to make; if you do, you’ll be missing out! Stop by for a cozy weekend brunch, and let me know what crepe you end up choosing!
Cute and cozy atmosphere with delicious crepes!
