Crepes are definitely one of my favorite foods. Anyone who’s been out to breakfast with me knows that crepes are my go-to order if they’re on the menu. I’ll pretty much eat any crepe, but the best ones are from “Creme of the Crepe” in Park Ridge.

To be honest, I found this restaurant about a year ago when I was struck with the brilliant thought of a, “Smores Crepe” and sure enough found through Google that Creme of the Crepe has that, along with a variety of other flavors.

From Nutella to Feta Cheese, this little cafe offers all kinds of different crepes, both sweet and savory. They also have homemade baked goods, salads, paninis, and sandwiches.

Once I got over the initial shock and near-tears excitement of the marshmallow goodness that IS a Smores Crepe, I tried a variety of different options. Another great find is the “Turtle Crepe,” which has chocolate and caramel drizzle and is filled with walnuts.

The atmosphere of the cafe is really peaceful and everyone who works there is really nice. (The owner is actually the chef, and he’s always fishing for compliments about his food when it’s time to pay. He’s very sweet.)

It can get pretty busy on the weekends, but it’s really rare to have to wait to be seated. There’s also an order-online option, if students would prefer picking up a crepe to eat at home.

Students really can’t go wrong with these crepes. They’re perfectly thin, (not like pancakes parading as crepes, I’m looking at you Gail’s Carriage Place), fresh, and extremely creative. I mean, come on, just saying “Pie Me to the Moon” to order a crepe stuffed with Apple Pie filling, graham crackers, and carmel is enough to put a smile on someone’s face.
