Whether a bistro, brasserie, or haute cuisine, many French restaurants in Denver opt for a Parisian feel. Crêpes n Crêpes, however, pays its homage to the provençal French countryside with colorful tablecloths and rustic furniture.
The café’s laid back nature reflects its provençal decor. “Sit wherever you’d like,” a warm voice beckons as you walk through the doors. I choose prime real estate by the window and the same warm voice is bringing me water within seconds.
Savory and Sweet
The menu at Crêpes n Crêpes is pretty simple. You’ve got one side for savory crêpes, one side for sweet crêpes, and a third section for coffee beverages.
The server recommends the tomato basil crêpe, but I’m in the mood for something with egg, so I go for the Florentine on a buckwheat crêpe.
Lunch and Happy Hour
The crêpes at Crêpes n Crêpes are very high quality, but can cost you $8 – 15 a piece on the regular menu.
I recommend going for the Lunch special Monday – Friday, which includes a “smaller” crêpe (these are still very substantial, as you can see from the photo above) and a salad or soup for $10.
If you’re hankering for a crêpe in the evening, try stopping by before 6pm for the crêpe Happy Hour. It’s only $5 for any “smaller” savory or sweet crêpe on the menu and you can also score a $2 European draft beer (Kronenbourg 1664, which I’d yet to find in the States until this visit).
